Happy December 1st! Can you believe it is already December? I don’t know about you, but December is my absolute favorite month and I couldn’t be more excited! I have already started listening to Christmas music early last week and am in the process of putting up our Christmas tree. I would’ve done it last weekend, but it was pretty hectic with our two Thanksgiving on Thursday and an extra one on Saturday. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones last week. I had an great time seeing all of my relatives and enjoying all the delicious food. Every year I am responsible for making the desserts at my family’s Thanksgiving and this year I went all out and made the traditional pumpkin pie, an apple crisp and a french silk pie. I had my younger sister, along with my little cousin over my house the night before to help me bake. We had so much fun staying up late baking and waking up early to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.


I was even adventurous enough this year to go shopping on Black Friday. My sisters and I, along with my sister-in-law went to the Mall of America from four in the morning until 8 AM. It was a mad house there, but it was so much fun to see everybody out. It was very crowded, but everyone was happy and not really pushy or anything.  We went to Old Navy first, then Urban Outfitters, H & M, Macy’s, Forever 21, Express, Nordstrom Rack and lastly Steve Madden. I got some sweaters, PJ bottoms, and jackets for my sisters, Mike and I at Old Navy. They had great deals on everything plus they were giving away a free Dance Central Kinect game with a $25 purchase, which was great. Urban Outfitters had an additional 50% off sale items and Express had a 40% everything before noon. I picked up a couple of shirts and pants for Mike at Express and also used a $50 off a $150 purchase, so I got everything for less then $100. I also picked up some clothes at H& M and Nordstrom Rack for Mike for Christmas. What I was really excited about was my “Iden” boots I got at Steve Madden. I’ve been trying to find some simple black wedge boots for awhile now. I purchased the Steve Madden “Intyce”, but returned them because I didn’t like how much they sagged around my ankle. I love the “Iden” because they hold their shape really well and are very comfy. I got a lot of things for Mike checked off my Christmas list, but have a lot more to go! Did you guys do any shopping on Black Friday? Find any good deals? How about Cyber Monday? There were a lot of good deals on Monday, but mostly everything I found was for myself, so I didn’t buy anything. I am trying to be good this month and not buy anything for myself. lol. We’ll see how that goes!


Well as you can see here is the “Holiday Gift Guide: For Him”. A lot of the things on this are things I’ve gotten for Mike and things I think he would like or any guy would like. I know it is a little disorganized, but here is the list of everything.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this Gift guide for that special guy in your life. Look for more “Gift Guides” to come. Have a lovely Tuesday!
