Monday Musings

November 23rd, 2009 at 04:13 pm

So DF and I get to see our house tomorrow *happy dance*! It should basically be finished - they just have landscaping left to do. I'm so excited to see everything! The carpets! The appliances! And I'm soooo excited to see my fridge! What 21yo gets excited about a fridge?!

We went to look at furniture on Saturday and put a tempur-pedic bed and a sectional on hold at Macy's. We will be financing it via a six month same as cash promotion but we need to wait until closing so as not to interfere with our home financing. After, delivery and tax the total will come to about 4.5K. More than I wanted to spend but doable.

I've also been nibbling away at Christmas. I got my dad some new moccassin slippers for $5.46 at Kohl's. He loves his old ones but the soles are wearing thru. I will also be getting him 6 months of that blockbuster dealio that is similar to netflix. I got my sister some lancome makeup which will be coming with NINE free samples! She will also be getting an oil heater thing and a couple of oils to help her dorm room smell better LOL. Got the MIL and FIL a couple of candles. I want to get them a bottle of wine and a movie to. Total spending thus far - about $150. Still need to snag my brother and iTunes gift card and some nice noise blocking headphones. My mom and I agreed to not exchange gifts this year but I will be taking her out to a nice dinner for her birthday on the 22nd. And DF and I have agreed to keep it small at $100 each for things like candy, CDs, movies, etc. DF will take care of buying his little brother something for his birthday and Christmas. We will be in Palm Springs for the holidays and will be spending time with DF's grandparents. I'm wondering what a nice token gift would be to give them for hosting us. Any thoughts?

It's almost that time to get goals for the new year down in writing ... I'll be working on that - ta ta for now!

    how exciting to be moving into your new home - i remember that feeling even though it was about 8 months ago now.
    hope everything goes smoothly for you.

    Chocolates is generally a nice gift, unless they're diabetic.

    Nice! That is really cool to be moving into the new place, and I hope it leads to much happiness for you. Let us know if you find some good noise-canceling headphones for a decent deal - those things can be expensive, and is there any insurance that they work as advertised?
