So, I didn't get up very early to go this morning because nothing, NOTHING was worth getting up for. I combed the ads and honestly there was like one thing that was just a maybe on the doorbusters. Unless of course I decided to go and buy myself the Cricut, but I am not really sure I want one yet.
So, my mom and I went out around 9:30 and shopped until 5:00 or so. Definitely a full day. Got some pretty good deals, especially for Sophie and Chloe (ahem, and for me too thanks to my mommy. Did you know Dressbarn is selling Seven jeans now for 49.99? And they were on sale for buy one get one 1/2 off. Love the way they fit).
Bria got the shaft though. Because the Easy Bake Oven has apparently been recalled (I was wondering why it wasn't in the ads since it seems like it is there every single year) and that was all she wanted. I even called Joel from Target when I found out the terrible news and asked him to get more ideas from her. She couldn't come up with anything.
On the one hand, I suppose that's great. My daughter isn't overly materialistic. On the other hand, she really had her heart set on an Easy Bake Oven. She is in kind of a strange stage for me. She is starting to really like all the tween stuff, but I'm not really sure I want to get her started in a lot of those things quite this young (High School Musical has been the only exception thus far). But she isn't loving a lot of the things she has been into in the past. She still really likes Barbies, but she got a Barbie house from Santa last year and is getting quite a bit of Barbie stuff from my parents this year.
So I'm completely stuck. No clue what to get my own daughter as her premiere gift from Santa.
