TGIF and gift talk

TGIF! We've made it. Do you have plans for the weekend??

After work, I'll probably head to the mall for an hour or two to try and round up a couple more gifty's.
Though I don't entirely know what I'm looking for...oh well.

I have a love/hate relationship with gifts.
On the receiving end... sure, it can be fun to get them sometimes. But I don't like it when someone feels the need to force themselves to find something...ANYTHING for me. If you think I'll enjoy something, I appreciate even just that you thought of me!
On the giving end... kind of the same thing but switched around. Sometimes you find the PERFECT thing, and you just HAVE to get it for them. But I hate trying to search out what they could possibly want (because everyone seems to buy what they need and usually what they want{I know I usually do...}).
And I think that's why gift cards come into play quite a bit. They're generally the "easy way out" I suppose...but sometimes it's just the best option! Why guess what someone would want and leave them feeling disappointed , when you can just give them the gift of letting them PICK what they want. (But then, they do know EXACTLY how much you spent on them, and they don't really get anything exciting to open up).

I don't know.

What do you think about giving/receiving gifts? I'm curious!
What about gift cards??
Do share :D

So, last night when I first got home, I decided I wanted to vacuum and clean the house quick. Now guys, George does NOT like loud noises (he's a bit of a 'fraidy cat)... he hides when I make my smoothie in the morning, and he also hates the vacuum. When I was finally done, I checked for George (I knew where he was)...

From afar, he looked all nice and cozied! But up close... he looks troubled, like he's seen many horrible, horrible things. He got over it...after about 5 minutes of not hearing the vacuum, he finally headed out to get some food. Trauma makes him hungry.

I also got to open door #6, and I was right!

Sweet, little, delicious egg! And tonight (after hitting the crazy mall)...

I have a strong feeling, I'll be getting another sweet, little egg...

Enough of that...

So today we're at the I get to discuss my most memorable Christmas.
Hmm... I actually don't think I have one that's significantly more memorable than the rest.
I love Christmas, I've loved them all thus far. I remember them being quite a bit more eventful when I was younger and pretty well EVERYONE was home for Christmas at the farm. If not everyone, it was at least 8 or 9. Those were some fun times :D

Do you have one Christmas that stands out to you above the rest??

Enjoy your Friday!

Bye for meow :)!

PS. My smoothie looks a little less green today ;)


  1. I HATE buying gifts when I don't know what to get. But when you find the gift that is just right, it is an awesome feeling.

    As for the most memorable Christmas, for me it's the time when we had Christmas in Utah with a couple of my dad's sisters and I got the chicken pox. I got way more gifts because everyone felt bad for me.

    1. Exactly! It's difficult! haha.

      And nice! SOunds like a winner! Did it make the chicken pox worth it?
