Burning a hole in my pocket . . .

For Christmas, I got a few gift cards and they are burning a hole in my pocket!! ha ha! I'm thinking about going to see what damage I can do with a couple of them today when I get off work! I got 2 for Macy's, so I may go there. I think I am wanting to try and find something cute to wear tomorrow night when Mike and I go out to dinner for our anniversary. So I will go look and see. I also got a gift card to Lowe's - this may sound strange, but I LOVE Lowe's! There so much I want to do to our house so I know I will put that to good use. I may wait a bit to use that one because I know if I go use it and find something it may mean Mike may have to do some work, and I hate to do that to him right now, ha ha! So I'll hang on to that one a little longer.

I know sometimes people think gift cards are so impersonal but I love them. I just think you can't go wrong with a gift card! My Dad got my Mom one for Dillard's so she can go shop, then one to Pier1. They are moving and so I know she will enjoy going to Pier1 and using it once she gets settled and all.


Last night was Mike's birthday, I will have to post pics of that later on in the week. Happy Monday everyone. Hope most of you are off work . . . unlike me today! But I am off tomorrow and so is M, so we are planning on staying in our PJ's, chilling, watching our wedding videos (since it will be our 2 year anniversary) and then go to a nice dinner later that night. So I am looking forward to that!

Happy (early) Anniversary! I love gift cards. My sweet family got me a few so that I can buy a new wardrobe after I have our little one.

i totally agree, there is nothing wrong with giftcards!! :)
they allow you to buy exactly what you want!
i am guessing since your parents are moving this means they will finally be together, at least i hope so!!
i hope you and your hubby enjoy your day off together and have a fabulous time celebrating your anniversary! you deserve it! :)
