Happy Tuesday everyone. Those darn kids got in the way of my blogging yesterday. How dare them. Can't they just feed and change themselves? LOL
I had a great time going Black Friday shopping with my sister. We found some great deals and that is always nice. I had some spending money from my birthday so that made it fun. The only sad thing that happened is that I had one of my purchases lost/stolen. The reason I threw in stolen is that at one point before we were going to leave the mall, this lady was a bit aggressive and shoved her way through the tiny space where my sister and I were looking at some skirts. I usually never put my bags down, but I had put one of them down. I was so sad when I got back to my parents house to discover it missing. It was a really cute silver top I'd gotten on sale at Ann Taylor. It was really different from anything I own and I was looking forward to wearing it. At least it was just one item that was missing and I did get it for 1/2 off.
So my advice is keep everything close to you while you are out shopping. I'd hate for you to have that happen to you.
Now on to more cheerful things. This week is the two year anniversary of my blog. I'm so excited. I started it December 4th. I wanted to have a way to do something fun and creative after having my first son. So I entered the world of blogging.
As a way to celebrate my blog's anniversary, I'm hosting a give away. I've mentioned recently in some posts that one of my favorite new finds is Elf cosmetics that are now being sold in Target. They are such a great, inexpensive way to get glam. Well, the good folks at Elf said they would love to send me some of their products for me to try and to give away. So to celebrate my blogs anniversary, I'm giving away one of their super cute nail polish gift sets. I'll also have another one of their products to give away next week.
I love these sets because they come in these pretty pink round containers. The set I'm giving away is the "favorites" set. These little sets are a great price at only $6. They would make perfect stocking stuffers, especially great for filling that bottom part of the stocking that is so odd shaped. You know the one that "Santa" always stuck the apple & orange in to fill it. LOL
