Weekly Friends TV Quote!

Season 1 Episode 16 TOW Two Parts, Part

ROSS: I don't know whether he's testing me, or just acting out, but my monkey is out of control. But, he keeps erasing the messages on my machine, supposedly by accident.

RACHEL: Oh, yeah, I've done that.

ROSS: And then, like three days in a row he got to the newspaper before I did and pee-ed all over the crossword.

RACHEL: I've never done that.

Mom Dot Party~ Day 3

It has been nice having my blogs planned out for me ahead of time! Thanks MomDot for putting this fun blog party together! Click the picture... It will take you to all the Christmas Party Fun!!
Today's question is brought to you by: Appledonia, Hippos Toes and My Bag
Today's Question: Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Do you budget for the holidays? Do you always stick to your budget? Share with us any budgeting tips you may have!
We are lucky when it comes to the holiday season, because my dearest husband gets his dividend check for all the stocks he has through the company he works at. This means we don't have to move money around when it comes to shopping. We do set up a budget though. We make a list of all our family members... kids only for extended family. We think of a sensible amount for each person. Parents and grandparents get more of a budget than the kids. The princesses will have the most room for shopping, because let's face it... our children are the most fun to shop for! My husband is better at sticking to the budget. I am always trying to sneak in a few more gifts!
Now I must admit that I tend to be the shopper who does 2 things:
1. Buys everything online. It may take the fun out of shopping, but I get to sit in the comfort of my home, catch up with the long list of shows on my DVR while I surf the net looking for that perfect gift.
2 Waits for the last minute. Yes I am one of THOSE people. The frantic shopper who is running up and down the mall finding that last minute gift.
Hopefully this year I find error of my ways and get into the Christmas spirit and to my shopping in a timely fashion away from the computer!
***Come back tomorrow... I am going to play catch up and participate in day one a couple days late. I just want to be able to introduce you all to the family!"***

I'm the on-line shopper too. I'd much rather sit and relax than fights crowds of people pushing each other to get the last of something.

Some people don't think that shopping is fun at all...so online is a great alternative!

Don't worry, I'm one of 'those' people too -- the frantic people running up and down the stores looking for last minute gifts! And I love online shopping too, I HATE crowds with a passion!
