My secret santa gift from Plunged in Debt

My secret santa gift from Plunged in Debt

Well if you’re reading this, the world hasn’t ended. Hurray! But that just means now most of  us still have to continue paying our debts and working. Sigh…

How much airplay do you think REM will get today? Probably a lot.

So, first of all I wanted to thank Catherine from Plunged in Debt (not “into debt” as somehow my eyes have read this entire time).

She was my secret santa as organized by Kathleen at Frugal Portland. She got me a mini-spa package including some nail polish, hot cocoa, nail polish remover, and a facial mask. Love it! I’m already wearing the purple nail polish. Thanks Catherine!

So are you all done with your Christmas shopping? If you feel stressed, be sure to check out my post from earlier this week called 10 Ways to Keep your Holiday Season Simple. How ’bout that plug eh? :)

But enough about me. Here are some posts I enjoyed from this past week! Have a great weekend!

    I’m so glad the world isn’t over! What would I do without blogging? Gotta love all the work we put into it.

    I haven’t finished shopping yet. Most likely pick some things up this weekend.

    No, the world didn’t end…YET! I mean, what if the zombies are just waiting to catch us when we’re not on our toes?! I better keep our super secret bomb shelter stocked just in case. KIDDING! Thanks for linking to my post, Tonya! Happy The World Didn’t End Day!!

    Thanks so much for the mention. There was no way the world could end on my Debt Freedom Day! Happy Holidays to you :)

  • femmefrugality

    I was surprised there wasn’t MORE hype about it and I didn’t hear MORE REM. Lol. I was seriously freaked out, though. More on that on Monday. Thanks for all the great reading!

  • Cat Alford

    Ooh that Secret Santa gift looks so fun! Great taste for sure. REM was such a big hit at my high school. They played it at the end of every dance as we jumped up and down. Exciting stuff. ;) Glad the world didn’t end too, despite the whole still-having-to-work thing. Merry Christmas!
