  • Haul:  Bobbi Brown Rose High Shimmer Lipgloss & Chrome Nail Polish
  • Weekend plans:  We have family coming down tomorrow, so definitely some cleaning and tidying up before they get here.  I can’t believe the year is almost over!

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  Received my Bath & Body Works order finally!
  • Weekend plans:  Wrap Christmas gifts, clean the house, and my desk needs a good sorting!
  • Are you superstitious?:  5% of me is.  When I went away to college, my mom got me a money frog (it’s a frog figurine that has a coin in his mouth), and it’s supposed to always point into your home, and then prosperity will come.  So, I’ve kept him and his coin facing inwards in all of the places I’ve lived, and I continue to do it, because I’ve definitely had many good things happen since he’s been part of the household.

  • Haul:  Received my philosophy order from last week (Gingerbread Man (6 oz), Almonds & Cream, Barely Glazed, Cranberry Twirl, Golden Butter Candy, White Cranberry, Granny’s Homemade Apple Pie, Mulled Wine, and Raspberry Glazed).  I ended up placing a Bath & Body Works order last week too, but that’s not due to arrive until next week.
  • Weekend plans:  We’re having a big team meeting on Saturday, actually! And then our holiday “party.” (It’s myself, husband, and my brother-in-law, so it’s not exactly a party.)
  • Favorite restaurant you’ve been to on vacation?:  Scarpetta in Las Vegas @ the Cosmopolitan.

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  I haven’t received anything yet… but I did place a philosophy order this AM for Gingerbread Man (6 oz), Almonds & Cream, Barely Glazed, Cranberry Twirl, Golden Butter Candy, White Cranberry, Granny’s Homemade Apple Pie, Mulled Wine, and Raspberry Glazed… all shower gels!  I bought Mellan fancy shampoo (his skin’s been a little dry) earlier this week, does that count? ;)
  • Weekend plans:  I have a huge organization project ahead of me, and then I’d like to catch up on my backlog a bit!  Mostly recover from Thanksgiving food overload… you know, by stuffing myself full of it again for lunch and dinner today!
  • Did you indulge in any Black Friday non-beauty deals?:  I bought a few clothing pieces and a pair of booties at Nordstrom yesterday, plus a jacket for hubby.
