Shopping and Advent Calendars

First I have been in search of a advent calendar that my kids would love and would be easy (cheap). I saw this on Joy's of Home blog didn't they turn out so cute! Yes, Brinsley your 12 year old brother is now officially taller than you.
Shopping was fun I got alot of Christmas bought ( and me a few things). The loot I know alot of it is in bags but certain people might see certain things! Ignore the shoes in my closet.

I bought me this cute jacket for "work"and of course I had to have this purseI made more blankets and more to comeI hope everyone has a great night I am headed to bed shopping will wear a girl out!

One of these days I want to make an advent. If I made one now my boys would cheat and it would be Christmas before it really is.
Love your shopping loot. I'm heading out today to shop for ME.
