Black Friday Shopping + Officially Christmas

How many of you did your Black Friday shopping?

I live in Canada so it wasn’t as big as it would be in the states, I also only went to one store which was Walmart. I didn’t even want to go shopping but my boyfriend wanted to get 2DS games. It was probably the worst shopping experience I’ve had, Walmart has all their games locked up behind some glass and there was so many people lined up for iPads and Tablets that no one was paying attention to any other product by electronics. My boyfriend and I waited for 15-20 mins just to get a game unlocked from this cabinet, it was ridiculous.

When we finally got our games and stood in line it was taking forever, they had people who didn’t even work in electronics working there but all they did was end up standing there. People would walk up to them and ask can you unlock this or help answer me this and these people were like I can’t but I can get someone that can. What was the point of you being there? Useless people I tell you. We ended up getting Mario Kart 7 and Zelda for my boyfriend.

The funny part was we didn’t even have our 2DS yet, they were still coming in the mail, which we were bumped by because when you buy something all you want to do it just play with it right? We were sitting on the couch and saw the mailman come, it was awesome. Just as we said we wish they were here they arrived!

My house is officially Christmased out! We put up all our decorations, both our trees, our Christmas lights have been up forever but that’s okay. I’m also almost done my shopping! I only have one person left to get which they sent me their list today but I’m lazy so I don’t know if I’m getting it today.

Alright, thanks for reading my lazy blog!

Valentines Day

Well it’s that time of the year again when all the singles bitch and complain that they are so alone on this one “special” day, when really it is the most stupid day of the year.

Now most of you reading this are probably thinking that, oh here’s just another single girl bitching like I said up above, you’re wrong. I actually have a boyfriend. I’ve been with him for a year and a bit but I still have this stupid non-holiday. My boyfriend is all for it where as I’m the one telling him that we are not doing anything and we’re not getting each other gifts. He of course didn’t listen and got me something so I felt bad and got him something. Even though I hate this day I will participate because I know he will love doing something small for me, that’s just the way he is.

I however went big with his gift because he completely deserves it. I am not saying what it is just in case he has one of these are actually knows what my URL is.

He told me that he ordered my gift, now that can be a number of things and I’m actually so nervous as to what he got me. We are not actually doing Valentines Day on the 14th, we are actually doing it on the 16th because he works; this is okay with me.

Now back to the ranting.

I do not know why this day has to be the one day that boys and girls have to be nice to the person they like. Why does this one day have to be the day that you get your boyfriend or girlfriend a gift or treat them to something nice? I would much rather get a surprise gift for no good reason then get a gift on Valentines day.

I mean everyday should be they day that you do something nice for your other half! When my boyfriend got me flowers for finally finishing high school I was so damn happy, but knowing that I’m going to get them on that day isn’t going to be as much fun.

Now guys, I know you’re thinking that it’s actually so hard to buy girls something because maybe you don’t know them that well and you want to get to know them, flowers is the best gift on a random day. I know girls will say, “Oh I hate flowers, they die, they’re so stupid.” Guess what, she’s lying. Girls love that shit, they eat it up and this is coming from a girl. And to be honest, cheesy is better in my opinion. A simple little love letter of what you care about that person or you’re favourite things about them is honestly the best thing, you can keep those things forever!

I’m just a big cheese ball though and I know my boyfriend is the same way even though we don’t look it. I mean we eat crap food, watch sports and he farts on me all the time but that’s just us. We are honestly the weird couple that everyone hates because of how close we are to each other.

Now girls, guys are actually really hard to buy for, but most guy I think just don’t really give a shit about gifts and they just want to be with you, have sex and just relax like it’s any other day. This I also know what my boyfriend would want, but my boyfriend just loves to make me happy and make me feel special.

Both men and females, if the person really cares about you, it’s not the gift that matters it’s just being able to spend that time together is what matters.

So this Valentines day, relax at home, get naked, have amazing sex and watch a horror movie.

No power on Christmas Eve

December 24th we go up to my dad’s for Christmas with him. This year I went up with my best friend and my sister. Before we left the house we knew he didn’t have power because of the storm so we had to dress warm, the only problem was it was the coldest night out of the week (-14). We left the house and went to a Tim Hortons by my house, when we got there it was jammed and the drive-thru was closed. We left and went to a different one, when we go there the line up for the drive-thru was long but we waited. When we were in line I remembered that I forgot my rum balls I made for everyone – we went back to my house to pick them up. Finally, we were on the road to my dad’s, which is a 45min drive. By the time we got there the sun had just gone down and it was dark, you could still kind of see the trees when we noticed that the big tree house we had was crushed because the tree fell over. Inside the house was pitch black, I couldn’t see where my dogs were and I don’t think they are like cats where they can see in the dark so you trip over them. My dad put the fire place on and lit all the candles – thank god my step mum has an obsession with candles. The house was freezing, none of us ate so we literally ate two whole chickens they bought from the store then we opened our gifts. 

We made my step mum, dad and step brother open theirs first and explained everything, my best friend opened hers next and then finally we opened ours. I hope I can remember everything they got me but I’m going to try. I got nail polish, perfume, two roots t-shirts, one roots sweater, two movies I believe, socks, eyeliner, lip scrub, a photo album, old bottle of coke, Blue Jays book, and The Great Gatsby book. 

From my best friend (since I opened it at my dad’s house), I got a yoga block, yoga ban, yoga DVD, Nutella cook book, Nutella, cookie spread, and a wooden spatula. 

After we opened all our gifts my step mum and brother were both so cold that they went to their friends house to warm up and sleep. My dad stayed with us and chilled until he could no longer stay awake – which was pretty early since he worked the night before – we said goodbye and left. 

Before we got into the car my dad told us to look up. Since the power was out in that little town the stars were so wicked, you could literally see all of them because he was a clear night too. It was actually so cool to see.

My cool ass uncle

December 23rd is when my cool ass uncle came over to my house like I said in a previous post. My uncle always comes to my house with donuts and coffee/hot chocolate, it’s something you get to look forward too. He is the only uncle I have that is actually so interested in what my sister and I do and will actually come with us to weird ass things that we would have no one else to go with. For years he has been trying to get Rob Zombie tickets for him and I but I always end up having a big baseball tournament when he comes to my city, this year he said that he will get Jays tickets and we will go see a game! I love the Jays so I’m pretty excited about that – he actually keeps his word so I know this will happen! Anyways, we talk the night away, he travels a lot so we get to hear all of his stories and sometimes see some pictures. I never really get to see him so it’s actually so much fun to see him, which needs to happen more which my sister and I will make it more.

He dropped off our gifts and we opened them on Christmas, he always gets us something small but it’s always something good. For me he got me season 1 and 2 of Sons of Anarchy, season 1 of The Walking Dead and an LCBO gift card that I can use on new years!

I’m a bad gift giver.

BORING LIFE!

Yup, nothing new in my life is happening therefore making it really boring and having nothing to write about. 
Today I did however had a productive day. Last night I told myself that tomorrow I’m going to go shopping for more Christmas gifts, work, then come home to wrap all the gifts I’ve gotten so far. That’s for sure what I did! I really hate shopping alone, I feel like it’s sad, lonely and harder. When you shop you need someones opinion of whatever it is you are going to buy. For example I was Christmas shopping for my boyfriend, I wanted to get him a sweater but I have NO idea which one or what size because I forgot to ask him. I honestly left the store, walked to my sisters store, tried to find her since it’s a big store, then when I finally found her I asked her what to do. She told me that when she shops for her boyfriend she puts it on to see how big it is on her because guys always get girls to wear their clothes or girls just steal it. I thought that was the best idea ever and very smart, so that’s what I did. He finally messaged me when I was at work what his size was and I think I got the right one. I guess we will wait and see. 

“I’m a bad gift giver.”

This is like a famous line I say when I have to buy anyone a gift. This is what happens; I always brain storm of ideas then I go get the best ones. When I think about what I got them it all seems really lame to me so I get more but, when I go to wrap all the gifts I end up having so much for each person. I just always feel like I give bad gifts. Last year my ex was so picky when it came to things so all his gifts had to be like perfect and I had to listen to what he said throughout the year just to figure out Christmas gifts. My boyfriend this year is the best and loves everything I get him. We love Doctor Who and I randomly decided that I was going to get him something just for the hell of it. I saw online a TARDIS robe and I knew he would love it –  or at least I thought I did when I first saw it. So I order it, it comes and I pick it up but as soon as I go to give it to the person I’m like, “SHIT what if he doesn’t like it or he thinks it’s so lame.” Honestly, that’s what happens in my head. Anyways, he picked me up just to go over to his house and that’s when I gave it to him. I folded it so he wouldn’t know what it was right away but when he opened it he was like. “Is this a TARDIS robe?!” I obviously told him yes and he started freaking out saying it was awesome and so cool. I was SO happy it loved it and now he wears it all the time. The next morning he went to go so his mum and even he’s mum said it was really nice of me to randomly get that for him. 

I guess I will have to let you know if everyone loves their millions of gifts. 

Christmas shopping sucks. 

I honestly sucks so much because of how much time and effort it takes to get it done. I started November 1st and I’m still not done to this day. There is 21 days until Christmas and I’m still not friggen done. I have no idea how parents get there kids and families a million this each year. I swear the world works just for Christmas! 

Thanks for reading.
