Weekend Recap

David and I went Christmas shopping in Sioux Falls yesterday. We didn't get it all done, but thankfully we got quite a bit finished. The stores were sooo busy, annoyingly busy at some places (Old Navy and JC Penny were the worst). We went to Hobby Lobby too but it wasn't a good experience. The store was so crowded and it was almost impossible to take the time to look at anything. We were in and out in about 20 minutes, I think that's a new record! I usually spend closer to an hour in there. Anyway, I bought a few things to make a Christmas gift and some scrapbook paper for a little project.
Michaels really came through for me yesterday though! I usually don't find much in there because the store is pretty small but I got all of this yesterday for $11.
All of the Christmas picks were 50% off. Some of these were only 29 cents!
We hung out at home last night and played Scrabble and watched a movie - sounds like we're in our 80s!! We don't have much planned for today either. I'm going to work on a project or two and David has to go in to work later today.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Ugh! I hate shopping when it's that crowded. No fun! Glad you got some good deals and a lot done though. Can't wait to see your projects.

I agree. It's not as fun shopping with the crowds. I think this is the main reason I try to get my Christmas shopping done earlier in the year. Thank goodness now for online shopping! I look forward to see what you do with those picks from Michael's!

Living so far from a Michaels I got to go into one yesterday also. Never been to Hobby Lobby but I plan on finding one near me soon to visit to see what great deals they really have. You got some good ones.
