8 More Days Till Christmas!

8 more days till Christmas! Is everybody excited yet? I know I am although I don't have any presents under the tree to open. I am so excited for my kids to open theirs and I am sure they are going to love what they'll be getting! I have been so busy lately, as you can see it's been almost a week since I updated this blog! Thankfully I am done Christmas shopping and have pretty much everything wrapped! I do not like to pile the presents that I bought and rush wrapping them. 

Wrapping them as they arrive in the mail is what I prefer to do for the reason of I don't have to hide them somewhere and be worried of my kids finding the presents if it's for them. And it is also a lot easier and more convenient in my opinion not having to rush at the very last minute!

Anyway, like I said 8 more days and we all know how fast time flies so if you haven't done with your Christmas shopping yet, better get it done as soon as possible to avoid the Christmas rush! Christmas will be here before we know it!

Our Christmas Present For Her

We bought this Bunn coffeemaker for my mother-in-law for Christmas. Hers has been broken for several months and has been trying to find one to replace it. But she wasn't willing to pay the high price tag on it in the store. She tried ordering it online and she thought that she had won the bid, already paid for it and was expecting for it to come in the mail. A week later, no coffeemaker came! She contacted the seller and asked where her Bunn coffeemaker is, the seller couldn't give her a straight answer! Well, to make long story short, she got refunded with her money, no Bunn coffeemaker and the hunting continue on until my husband told her that Christmas is coming, why won't she just wait and she might get one for Christmas! And here it is above!
I too had looked in the store of how much this particular coffeemaker cost and yes it's very expensive! I wasn't willing to pay the price tag either. So I looked on Amazon and found this one for less than $90 plus free shipping and didn't have to pay tax! Hopefully my mother-in-law would be happy to receive this on Christmas! I am not sure if this is the same one she had but I guess it doesn't matter since it is the same brand! I asked my husband last night, why does it have to be this brand when there are other good coffeemakers for less prices. He told me this brand is really good, it has some features that some brands doesn't have and that's why it is expensive!
Well I can actually understand why she wouldn't want to settle for something else. She's been using this brand for how many years and when you get accustom of using something, you don't want to use anything else! On the back of the box, it pretty much answered my question that I asked my husband last night...

Happy Birthday To My Younger Sister!

Although I am pretty sure that my younger sister who is in the Philippines won't be reading this but I still want to greet her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! The actual day was yesterday in the Philippines but it is today here in United States. If I am not mistaken she turned 26 years old! It's pretty bad when you're not sure how old your own sister is! LOL!

Anyway, I hope that she had a wonderful 26th birthday with my family! I posted my birthday greetings on her FB wall! I could have called but I didn't because I am very sure she won't be answering her cellphone for she is busy working! I didn't send or give her anything for her birthday either but I will make sure that she will get something when I send them my Christmas presents which is always a little cash, so they can have a little something for Christmas!

A Different Thanksgiving This Year!

This year's Thanksgiving for us was definitely one of a kind! I do not mean it in a good way though! LOL! It was the roughest and the most chaotic Thanksgiving we ever had but thankfully with a happy ending!
 
What had happened was, the past Thanksgivings that we had, we always baked the Turkey. But this year my mother-in-law requested it to be deep-fried. Well, it would have been well and fine if we had plan it in advance like checking if all the parts of the deep-fryer are there or propane tank is full. On top of that, my step-daughter was coming to celebrate Thanksgiving with us, so we didn't really get to focus on it. We only had time to check it at the very last minute. 

Then we decided that we will have our Thanksgiving dinner at suppertime which is about 6pm! Well to make the long story short, we ended up eating our Thanksgiving dinner at almost 10 o'clock at night. The turkey didn't turn out the way my husband wanted it. So by the time it was done, it was all falling apart, everybody was exhausted and frustrated and half of the family was asleep! I really wanted to take family pictures but by the time we were all ready to devour our dinner, I was just too exhausted to get my camera out plus I was starving! LOL! But like I said, after our tummies were filled with good foods, we were all happy and mother-in-law went home happy as well!

Anyway, how about you guys, how did your Thanksgiving go? Hopefully it was unforgettable but in a good way!
