Shopping habits

Isn't it funny, this time of year, how crazy people get in malls? I mean really nuts. As if everything on sale isn't enough, there have to be doorcrashers. And then sale, after sale, after sale. For the most part, this is why I avoid shopping now. I'm just so sick of buying into the whole retail "You absolutely cannot live without this item" marketing ploy. Or having to go shopping every season because last winter's "brown is the new black" is actually pink this year. So how do I deal with the holiday season, or shopping for holidays? I don't. I avoid. Like the plague, until the absolute last minute.

Now for our anniversary, that's a different story in a way. It used to be that we'd go shopping together on the same day, different stores, same mall. Then meet up, go home and open gifts. Then came the "well this is so perfect for you, I'd like to get it for an anniversary gift for you now, is that ok?". So as far as shopping for gifts, I guess we kind of find things while we are both out shopping. But this year I want things to be different. I really want it to be a surprise. So maybe we'll go back to our original plan. Shop the day before or the day of our anniversary, and surprise each other when we get home.

How do you handle shopping?

You Are a Pumpkin Latte

You are energetic and fun loving. You get into the spirt of every season, but fall is definitely your favorite time.
You are excited for the change of seasons, and you love the spirit and togetherness it brings.

You love to do everything related to fall - whether it's celebrating Halloween and Thanksgiving or going to check out the changing leaves.

You truly immerse yourself in the season. You always miss autumn when it's gone, but you make the most of it while it's here.

Ah, my favourite season of the year!

You have to just love Fall here in the Capital. The leaves are turning bright orange and red! We had such a wet spring and summer, but that's good for fall...otherwise the leaves only turn yellow and golds, or so I'm told. As I sit here in my office at lunch, staring out the window across the river to the Gatineaus, I can see that the leaves are already turning much more there than here. Looks like we'll have to see if we can get out to hike next weekend, as it might be peak weekend for the turning of the leaves. I just love this time of year. Crisp days with bright blue skies. Cool nights to walk the dog. The leaves just fallen off the trees leaving their marks on the sidewalk. What's not to like about Fall?

Oh, right. It means winter is coming. :(
