So What! I'm almost done with my holiday shopping. Crazy, right?! And when I say 'Almost Done' I still have like 5 more people to shop for. I have the little note app on my phone where I type thoughts as they come to me on what to get different people. I even have a section for what I want too, because my parents always ask and I never have a clue.
So What! Am I the only one who has a lot of people to shop for at the holidays? I'm not complaining. I just wonder if everyone shops for 15-20 people or is it more like 10 or 2 or does your family draw a name from a hat at Thanksgiving or what? I like finding people really random/awesome/unique gifts. So I'm good even if I had 100 people to shop for, I'd have a blast. But what is the average number people shop for? Now I'm all curious.
So What! I also use my note app for ideas on where Elfie, our Elf on the Shelf will land every morning. I'm already seeing people post on FB how stressed out they are on what to do with their elf. Planning people. Take like 5 minutes and plan. Just make a list. It's easy. Hit up the dollar section at Target for fun things for your elf to bring. Or check my 2012 Elf on the Shelf Resourse Guide post. I'll do a recap at the end of this week on all the places Elfie's landed so far. My creativity's at an all time high... so I need to keep rolling with it lol!
So What! I REALLY love the idea of the Inappropriate Elf contest over on Baby Rabies. And I want to enter. I just have no clue of what to do. It's a PG-13 contest, so of course you guys can see my entry when I think of one. I just need to get super creative and come up with something that no one has thought of! These are the times I need to have some Barbies in the house. Most of my ideas involve Elfie and the ladies...
So What! I swore I found the #InappropriateElf contest... and I even blogged about it yesterday. Then today in my newsfeed not one but two other people (who I'm pretty certain do not read my blog they have like 5000 kazillion followers) posted about it. So either 1- they DO read my blog! 2- I did not find this contest and other people know how to use the internet to find fun things like this. womp.
So What! I have already heard people talking about their New Years plans. What? It's so early. I can't think that far ahead. SN- I have zero pictures from last year's New Years which is crazy, I know because we went to dinner and a concert and even out after that! And I'm pretty sure BF and I looked adorable (when do we not?), but there are no photos. sadface.
BF and I, just not on N. Years
So What! Every now and then I run into an Etsy seller who is pure evil. Who says they can make a custom item when they really can't. Then when the product comes out every sort of wrong, they send it to me anyway. Then I complain and they refer me to their shop policies which of course says no exchanges or refunds. Just today I ran into another Etsy seller like this and it seriously makes me so mad. I want to just go out to Target or Wal-Mart and get the supplies to make the item myself. No, it wasn't a christmas gift it was something for my own Etsy shop. I'd put the seller on blast, but I don't want to give her any more publicity. She sucks. The end.
So What! When I was at my dad and step-mom's house I found a product I'm totally obsessed with. And no this is not a sponsored post. It's going to seem like it, but for real this is me, Leah, being 100% honest without the sparkle of free stuff or cash making me biased. So I'm at my parent's house over Thanksgiving and go to sleep in the bed in the guest room and I think "OMG these sheets smell amazing!" I should back this up and say I have very little sense of smell. I like to call it a 'bad sniffer.' Which can be a blessing in some gross situations. BUT anyway, for real the sheets smelled SOOO good. Like not perfume-ie, just like they were washed and dried with the best dryer sheet ever that very day or something. So then it's the next morning, I'm sitting in their den watching the Macy's Parade and am wrapped up in a blanket. The blanket smelled so good too! So finally I asked my step-mom what detergent she used. And she was like 'oh I was at Target and saw these Downy Unstoppables and got them.'
She took me into her laundry room and showed me her variety of the scents. I like the 'Lush' the best (pictured above). Anyhow, the next time I went to Target I picked some up for myself! All you do is add a little cap-full of these little pill-looking-things in with your clothes in the washer. The clothes come out of the dryer smelling AMAZING! Or if you lay sweaters or whatever flat to dry, they smell amazing too! So of course I've washed clothes like crazy since getting the Downy Unstoppables. It's the little things that get me motivated lol... but seriously, I love this stuff!
So What! I JUST (like even after I hit publish on this post) signed up for an ornament swap! So much fun, right!? I can't wait to take part! If you sign up too, maybe we'll get matched up!
