    Your title made me laugh today! My housemate is in South America at the moment and before she left we were talking about how the only Spanish she needed to know was ‘una cerveza por favor’. Hopefully that’s all the Spanish she needed because none of us knew any more than that!

    I am actually done with my shopping! Bought it all in various stores except one present I ordered online from Tiffanys. Good luck doing yours – I hate crowds!

  2. I usually do a mix of online and mall shopping. Online is so much easier if you know exactly what you want, and can usually get a good deal and free shipping if you are lucky! I like to do the mall when I am more browsing to get inspired. Looks like it is going to be the mall for me this year as I need some ideas!

    Hah! Your House Hunters play-by-play made me laugh out loud- thanks for the smile! I have to wait to go home for break to earn a little Christmas present money- summer savings ran out just before Thanksgiving–> the one thing I won’t miss about college!! Have everything all picked out though πŸ™‚

      I don’t miss that either:) Although, in some ways, I was more financially stable in college because I didn’t have bills to worry about…

    I have it easy this Xmas – we agreed no gifts and donations to Junior Blind instead. I think I like it better this way!

  5. I was watching the exact same episode of House Hunters! I’m on a hyuge HGTV kick right now as I procrastinate studying.

    I’m doing mostly online shopping because I have to travel home for Christmas. Glamour.com has 31 Days of Giving and they are all presents related to a charity. Hoping to get most of mine from there this year!

    Hey, just popped in to say I recently discovered your blog via your sister…and I have to say I really enjoy it. Admittedly, I’m a blog fanatic, but it’s refreshing to read someone so “real” with every day problems and low energy days like the rest of us! Thanks for sharing.

    I am an online shopper. Its kind of a sickness, really, how much I’d just to prefer to shop at the comforts of home…or work πŸ˜‰ …I wonder if some day this will lead me to being a little old lady hermit afraid of social interaction!

  7. Ha, $99,000?! I’d like a house for that much that PASSES inspection πŸ˜‰

    Oh em gee, I was talking with a few of my college girlfriends the other day about how much we miss our Boston life- specifically Newbury Street- not just for the shopping, but it always looked so beatufiul during the holiday season!

  8. I know they say you’re not supposed to attach emotions/feelings to food, but when you’re having a long day or feel like hell, the right meal can make a WORLD of difference.

    p.s. I’m a total online shopper. I just don’t have the patience for malls. I’d much rather have a great sale delivered to my doorstep. That being said, this method only works if you already know your sizes for the stores you’re shopping at.

  9. There is nothing like curling up under a blanket after a so-so day, and even better if there is a good dinner and house hunters involved.
    I’m approximately 33% done Christmas shopping. I used to be a mall shopper, but everyone is in such a hurry these days – it does not make me feel cheery or bright to be out there with “them”. Of course, I’m always a delight πŸ˜‰
    Online shopping is really great for when you know what you want, it makes comparison easy and you can see all of your options at once. But, the mall / shopping centers are necessary for when I need to browse.
