Every year, I convince myself that THIS is the year we’re going to do our Christmas shopping early. Get it over with in September, or something like that.
Guess how much Christmas shopping I’ve done?
I even waited too late to properly shop for Izzy’s birthday, since it seems like every reputable retailer is out of the Lalaloopsy dolls that I specifically wanted for her. Meaning, the browner ones. Not that I have anything against the other dolls, because they’re based on a show, have different personalities, and she just might be attracted to one of those. Still though, I want my brown girl to have some brown dolls. I settled on a Hawaiian one, and a mime and her little sister.
I also ran across this gorgeous faux american girl doll
That reminded me of the one Jenni talked about in her latest post. I decided it was a must have, especially since I will NEVA EVA pay $100+ for a real American Girl.
So Izzy is well taken care of for her birthday, and maybe Christmas too. Might have to split this out some, but I’m horrible at surprises. We’ll probably find something cute for Zoe to put under the tree, but other than that, eh. I’m not really sure about buying gifts for adults this year, mostly because I just don’t feel like figuring out what to get their grown selves. We may just do for the kids in the family and keep it moving.
Before I end this post, I want to show you all the cover for the book I’m working in!
I kinda love it, and I can’t wait to finish the book! Too bad I’m only about 30% done, if that!
