So What Gifts Have I Actually Bought So Far??

There is just one word for this week. Craziness. I work in marketing & advertising and I place some newspaper ads for big retail stores into newspapers. It's not that interesting or glamorous, but this time of year it's one midweek, or 2-day sale, or last minute orders constantly. I buckled under pressure, so badly I lost my keys in my mall earlier this week. I got them back, but it's been hectic. Tonight after my cupcake class(I'll post my cake tomorrow), I sat down and really took a look at the gifts I got already and realized how many more gifts I need to buy...There is just not enough time for all of this! Ahh!!

Here are some of the few things I've purchased for gifts this year so far...

#1 - Girls: The HBO TV SHOW on DVD  (For my Best friend Helen) - At Target this week for $17.99 Online & In stores... Sale Ends this Saturday.  Check out the sale HERE.  Mentioned on A Cup Of Jo's Gift guide...

#2 - Propel Toys Stealth Flyer Indoor - (For my Boyfriend) Picked at Radio Shack on Black Friday...$14.99. He thinks the cats will go crazy w/ it...I hope so! See HERE.

#3 - American Eagle Scalloped Crossbody Bag - Picked this up over the weekend for $8.99 each in store. There was an Additional 40% Off Clearance Sale & I snatched up 2...A dark one for my best friend Hannah & a Light Blush colored one for my bohemian-esque lil cousin. Check it out HERE.
*cough* I bought a mauve one for myself too.. *cough

#4 - Wilton Tilt N Mix 3 Piece Bowl Set - ( MOM) I own a set of these bowls and they are wonderful. You can make  let's say a cookie recipe, then when it's all mixed, you can Tilt the bowl towards you to comfortably spoon out a cookie. I bought these at Joann's Fabric Store for $16.99. They were $32.99 and I had a 50% off coupon. Check it out on the Wilton Website HERE

#1 - Boardwalk Empire Season 1 - My Dad never saw it. I saw it at Costco & snatched it up!  Click to see it on Amazon: HERE

#2 - Pandora Beaded Babushka - I have a friend who collects Nesting dolls & luckily has a Pandora bracelet! =) Click to see HERE

#3 - Cards Against Humanity - I saw this over at Shannon's blog, "Sitting in a Tree" and had to get it! It's a raunchy hilarious more adult version of Apples to Applies. I got this for Craig.  To visit the website Click HERE:

#4 - The AMPLIFIEAR - I had to get this for Craig's Mom. She is attached her iPad nowadays and when I saw this at A Cup of Jo I knew I had to get it! Here is the website: The AMPLIFIEAR.

I can't wait to give people their gifts! Craig is going to Florida this weekend to visit his grandfather so I'm pretty pumped to take a lifestyle break for a few days. I will miss him like crazy, but we will definitely be Face Timing so it's all good!  I want to wake up early, finish shopping for a DIY I want to make for the rest of the gifts, wrap gifts (especially his gifts), really clean my apartment & finally finish decorating! Cheers to hopefully getting a lot accomplished for the rest of the week!
