On Saturday, I spent the day attempting to Christmas shop. I have realized that I'm totally an online Christmas shopper. I was only able to find a few items in store. Amazon just kills stores on their prices. The same thing is SO much cheaper and with free shipping. I ended up with way more stuff for myself than I did for other people. Which isn't what should happen when you are going Christmas shopping. The items that I got for myself? Well I got this little beauty from Beezy as an early Christmas present...
Remember the nutcrackers that I was obsessed with buying the last two years? Well guess what... Cost World Market came out with a new set for this Christmas season. Instead of chasing them all over town before they start to sell out, I went ahead and bought the entire set. Yep. Sure did. Judge away. But guess what, I'm happy!
Now for the bad. My finger nails have taken a beating over the last few years. My last job which was with government required that I wear disposable gloves a lot. Have you ever had your hand in a glove like that for hours of the day? No. Well guess what they'll kill your nails. So I would never get them done. I didn't see the point in basically wasting money on doing my nails. They wouldn't been seen half the day, they'd get tore up and basically be a waste of my hard earned money. So after years of not getting them done, I went to a nail place to get them done. I went in wanting a gel manicure on a full set of nails. My real nails are too short and uneven. She placed my hands on the table where I couldn't really see them because they hung in her direction. She did one hand and I was like OH MY!
She literally didn't file them down even. She put gel on them. On my real nail and didn't even do a good job painting them. Take a look for yourself...
HORRIBLE! I wanted to cry! I tried to explain to her that I needed a nail placed on my nail. She wasn't understanding at all. There was a language barrier and it wasn't working out. So I left. Now I've got to wait till this gel starts to wear off and then I can go get it done at a DIFFERENT place. So the poor girl at Top Nail who couldn't even paint each nail all the way, thank you. Seriously, I could have done a better job painting my own nails with one eye shut and using my left hand to paint.
Other than that... my weekend was pretty good!
Oh! I ate at PF Changs for the first time and it was SO good!
