Totally Random Friday – Sept 19th

This is the week I’m waiting for things. Patience is not my best virtue and it’s probably good that Canada Post has an app I can check a zillion times per day to see where my packages are instead of having to call and pester the Canada Post call centre people.

I did get my Julep order and talked about it on Instagram and on Wednesday in this post so I won’t bore you with details again.

I start Christmas shopping early (I’m sure you’re shocked, lol) and the Disney was having a sale on the plush dolls last weekend so I picked up some dolls for my nieces.

Aren’t they cute? I love these dolls. My daughter has a couple (*coughfourlargeonestwosmallonescough*) and they are perfect for cuddling or sleeping with. In fact, I think there’s an Ariel doll in my bed right now. The Maleficent one is actually for my mom, which she will think is hilarious, trust me. I also picked out character-matching t-shirts for the girls and sippy cups. And according to UPS, this should be delivered on Monday. So, Christmas for the nieces (on that side of the family), done!

I bought Cally a jacket and ski pants from Beyond the Rack a few weeks ago. The jacket arrived last week and it’s  gorgeous and the ski pants are supposed to show up tomorrow.


I like to be prepared for winter. I feel like the last two have really crept up on us and I hate being “that parent” standing in the store looking at the rack of snow boots that is empty. I bought her snow suit from BTR last year and was really happy with it. I bought her boots and mitts locally though and both stores have gone out of business since then so I have to figure out a new place to buy boots and mitts.


Cutest kid ever, I know. It’s totally okay to say it. 😉

I also mailed my Happy Mail Project package this week. I’ve had a great time getting to know Christine over at Simpy Stine when we were paired together. Basically, it’s a pen pal project. You sign up over at Pink on the Cheek and Lauren pairs you with another blogger within the same age range. You have two months to get to know each other and then you mail the other person a little present. It’s been fun and I’m definitely excited for my mail. Look for my blog post on or around Oct 2nd when I reveal what Christine sent me. And I’ll link hers so you can see what I sent her. Sorry, no previews as I know Christine reads the posts too. lol

The potential to win all the birthstone colours was too much to resist, I got the June one over the summer and it is gorgeous! Also Evolution of a Foodie posted some spoilers and the boxes looked pretty good. Crossing my fingers but it’ll be awhile yet before I get it, the box hasn’t cleared customs yet.

So, busy shopping week. How was your week? What did you buy? Getting ready for Christmas? I’d love to hear about it. Happy Shopping!
