Halloween has come and gone!

Hi guys! Well Halloween has come and gone and it was a blast. I love dressing up! Me and my hubby went as evil clowns and I did both of our make-up, we were late to the party we were attending but I'm almost positive we would have one the best couple costume! Maybe next year, I'm already turning the wheels on next years costume.

Now the focus is on Christmas, well trying to. I haven't even started my Christmas shopping, EEK! Perhaps thats a good thing because every year as I start shopping I keep filling my closet with presents and then when it comes time to wrap them I forgot about what I bought. So I end up spending more money in the end and wrapping presents into the wee hours of christmas eve. Oh come on I know some of you do this!

So this year I told myself no early shopping, not that I really had the time, this year is about a budget. Yup! You heard BUDGET! I'm sure we've all been there trying to say that we won't spend what we did last year but does this hold true, nope, not really. So this is the year, holding back on shopping has done some good. AH, but what to buy on a budget, kind of is a drag. Oh, I'm sure I\ll think of something................hmmmmmm. Thoughts??

Are you finished your shopping and now sitting back and enjoying the holidays. I love this festive season even just walking around the mall in no hurry, just people watching, looking at the decorations and listening to the wonderful music, oh and of course all the while holding an egg nog latte (skinny option of course). Ha, I would hardly call it skinny though as they still use real sugar syrup! But it is a nice treat once in a while. I think my addiction to them from last year has blown over a bit. I ran to several starbucks last year once I heard they were discontinuing them after the holidays, need my last fix! Crazy I was! What's your favorite treat over the holidays? Send me an email and let me know what you like to indulge in!

Have a very happy holiday and feel blessed that we can enjoy it here in Canada!
