A glass of wine and some wrapping paper.

I have found my zen. Wrapping Christmas presents is my way of relaxing this time of year. Whenever I wrap a present I can not wait to wrap the thing. Call me crazy, but there is something just so calming to me about wrapping a gift. I just love it. Just love it. I can not count the number of people who hate wrapping. Me, I am obsessed with it.
As far as Christmas shopping, I almost have my baby done. I went with my mother today and bought him some great stuff. I love buying things for that little boy. This year we have a tight budget and I would rather him get things than myself. That baby is all the gift I need. I don't need anything else. Christmas morning all I want is my son, hubby, a cup of coffee, the lights on the tree, and music. Then the fun of watching my son play with every box he unwraps. Thank god he is at the age where his toys are CHEAP and tons of FUN!
I want to get my hubby something, and I found exactly what he needs a wireless Xbox 360 headset. And I can not wait to give it to him. I found it on eBay, and when it comes in I will wrap it. I just hope he doesn't read this. He rarely reads my blogs. But, the headset is within budget. He will hopefully like it.
So, tonight once little man goes to bed, I am going to sneak into the bedroom and wrap his gifts. I try to get this stuff done early.
One more thing I have to share! I went grocery shopping and only spent $120!!! I got a lot of baby stuff and food, snacks,etc. I saved $60.50! I got to continue to save and hopefully my next bill will be smaller!
Now off to butcher the whole chickens I bought.....yum.


  1. I tend to wait until 11pm on Christmas Eve to wrap gifts. I'm a textbook procrastinator. Thank goodness for tape, because if I had to wrap using glue, it wouldn't be dry by the time the gifts needed to be unwrapped!

  2. Lol. I am thankful for tape too! Especially the hand dispenser.that this is a life saver!
