Oops, I Lied

Like the title says, I guess I lied.  I meant to have this post up yesterday but time got away from me.  I did a little after Christmas shopping.  Picked up 2 boxes of next year’s Christmas cards for $2.50 a box.   I replenished my collection of gift boxes since most of what I have are just falling apart.  I got 3 packages of 10 for $1.50 each.  I was also able to replace my light up penguin that was stolen from the yard a few weeks ago so that’s a good thing.

I also said I’d have Christmas pictures too but I couldn't decide which ones to put up so I picked the one I thought was the cutest.

Grim and Dune playing in the wrapping paper!  It’s their favorite thing to do during the holidays.

And finally, here’s the promised pictures of my holiday eye makeup.

So that’s my Holiday Look.  I’m thinking the next look I do will be for New Years but I can’t really claim it as mine, lol.  I got the look from another blog I read, Makeup By TiffanyD.  Along with that look I’ll talk about my plans for the New Year J.  I’m not gonna call them “Resolutions” since no one ever keeps those.

Thanks for stopping by and listening to me ramble and I’ll talk to you later!

Hi and Merry Christmas

Well,  I’ve decided to start a blog.  I figure I read enough of them I might as well have one of my own.  So yeah, welcome to my blog, Diary of a Shopaholic.   Hopefully the name is catchy, I haven’t decided if I like it yet or not, I guess we’ll see.  

Let’s start off with a Merry Christmas to all!  I hope everyone got everything they wanted.  I know I love what I got and I’m pretty sure my family is pleased with their gifts too.  Being together was the best part though.

I guess I should probably tell a bit about myself as well.  I’m Sabrina (Bri),  a 31, soon to be 32, year old, married mom of two.   I’ve been married to my husband, Aaron, for 5 years now.  I have a 14 year old step-daughter, Becca, and a 10 year old (going on 16, I think) daughter, Scarlett.  We live in Kansas with our 3 cats—Intrigue the Siamese, Dune the Bombay and Grimalkin (Grim) the grey long hair (all I got at the local Humane Society)—and our 2 dogs—Awen the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and Rowan the Shiba Inu.

I work in the travel industry as a customer service representative.  I’ve been at my job 7 years now but my dream is to be a paralegal.  Hopefully in a year or two I’ll be heading back to school to do that.

Now, you might be asking, what this whole blog will be about.  Well, pretty much just a whole mixture of things.  Anything I feel about writing about I guess.  Makeup, fashion, what I’ve done, bought (hence the “Shopaholic” part) or watched recently.  Possibly what I’ve been reading lately.

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys my new blog, reading about the random things I do in my life.  Tomorrow I’m hoping to get up a few Christmas pics and maybe even a few shots of my holiday eye look.  However, it’s now 11:30 PM and I’m ready for some sleep!  Good  night all!
