I know I’ve been a very irregular blogger. That trend may continue until sometime in February because I’ve just been busy around here with various things and it seems I’ll continue to be.
I got spoiled rotten on Christmas this year which I was not expecting at all. I’d only asked for something monogrammed from my in-laws when asked and a stocking from C. I ended up opening so many gifts I felt like I was a kid again and there were diamond studs in my Christmas stocking. On top of all that spoiling we got a brand new vehicle on the 26th…. So here are a few materialistic highlights. We also got a beautiful handmade quilt from my SIL, a late wedding gift, in our wedding colors. It’s so lovely, a true heirloom.
Tricking my cat into playing with dirty words for my amusement. Also the awesomely illustrated envelopes my inappropriate stickers and Cards and Against Humanity cards came in. Take a look:
And that tooth! I just love how she sleeps with her head upside down and that little fang tip visible.
The best face lotion I’ve ever tried because it actually gets absorbed into my skin whereas the other 4 or 5 kinds I’ve tried sit on top of my skin and when I rub my face, roll off on my fingers. Gross. This stuff is amazing. Also my pretty new makeup bag which has really helped me neaten up my bathroom as I now have my everyday stuff in there and the sporadically used products and supplies in a second bag in the cabinet.
And finally my dessert tonight, which was the perfect size for me since I’m not much for sweets (but can’t stop with salty stuff!). Having a small sweet tooth really helps at the yogurt shop because my total was all of $1.85 and I was satisfied for a couple hours before baking curly fries. #fatblogger.
So, I am not usually one to win raffles or drawings or random things like that, but today I checked the balance on the secret reward card that I got with my online order of short length yoga pants and holy fuck, I won $500 to spend at Victoria’s Secret by Dec 19th!!
There was just no way I was going to do that online since shipping costs increase with the total, so after an appointment this morning I rushed the whole mile (ha!) from my house to the Victoria’s Secret store. I spent an hour and a half in there, keeping a running total in my head, including estimated tax because I’m a freak.
I got 3 bras, 2 sports bras, 14 pairs of panties (making sure to get the 3 for 33$ and 5 for $27 type deals), a pair of non-foldover yoga pants, a sporty little jacket, a pj set, sleep tank and body spray for a grand total of $503.03…. so I paid all of $3.03 for everything you see here. I am having THE BEST DAY!
This was just the most awesome pre-Christmas surprise because I am not one to spend $45 on one of the mid-range bras or $11 on nice panties. It happens once every few years that I’ll buy one bra and the 5 for $27 panties, so for me this really was the jackpot and I’m going to feel so spoiled everytime I get dressed! The cashiers were also pretty amused that my name is Victoria because they actually had to take my id for a win this big.
Seriously, I’m calling it in a little bit because I unexpectedly worked all day with a very rowdy bunch of kindergartners and this week’s edition is stuff that made me laugh on the internet. Come to think of it, it’s probably better than my talking about how awesome my new face moisturizer is. So, yeah, happy hump day and enjoy some of my favorite saved internet jokes.
