Giveaway Winner + Life Updates!!

Happy Monday everyone!!

Let's just say, I am one proud wifey!! Brandon started his new job today, and I couldn't be more excited for him. He has worked so hard to get where he is today. He has been a self-employed farmer for two years, and now he's taking on a new feat in technical division of farm equipment! Oh the joys of farming. ;) As a farmer's wife, I get to learn all the technical terms for farm equipment, primarily tractors!

Yesterday we went shopping to update Brandon's wardrobe for his new job, and we found some awesome deals. However, while the day ended fairly well with those killer sales, waking up early on Sunday and realizing that the mall and other retail stores alike don't open until noon is very frustrating. So much for trying to be a step ahead of the game.

So, we tried to make the best of our early arrivals and went to Starbucks to pass some time. Yum! Yum! My latte was heavenly! Then we scoped out our lunch destination and found an awesome sushi restaurant. :)

After taking on the daunting task of dodging people and tolerating obnoxious customers, we've come to the conclusion that shopping is not for the lighthearted. You've gotta be at the top of your game at all times because people are cray cray! Rude cashiers, customers in line ahead of you that take forever or people who gripe about not being able to return something because it's past 30 days. Ahhhh!!! And Christmas.is.OVER.

From now on, Brandon and I will stick to online shopping. :)
