I did probably the hardest thing ever last night. I bought my boyfriend's parents (a.k.a. future in-laws!... maybe) their Christmas gifts.
Initially, I had intended to get them a gift certificate to a local restaurant called Stella Blue. They're definitely one of the best, if not THE best, restaurant in our area. I haven't eaten there (If you don't count the brownie that was given to me. I recommended it to a couple guests at the hotel, and they loved it so much that they brought it back to me. It was amazing), but I know it's my mom's favorite place to eat on special occasions.
His parent's are very family-oriented. And that's a good thing, considering there are 4 kids, with my boyfriend being the oldest. So, I thought the gift certificate would be a good idea so they could have an evening to themselves. But, I kinda-sorta spent too much money on everyone else, and I still have a bill that needs paid. Ugh. So, I had to figure something out. Maybe I should find out when their anniversary is...
I went to Wal-Mart last night on the lookout for an amazing gift that they could share together. Needless to say, I walked around the store for about a half hour feeling like an idiot because I had no clue.
You know that seasonal food aisle they have in the grocery section? That's when I saw it... The perfect gift, ...for his Dad. I definitely didn't think his mother would be nearly as appreciative.
|Okay, so I couldn't find the set that I purchased |
anywhere! Not even on walmart.com or pauladeen.com.
This is one of her full-sized candles. I bought a
trio of smaller candles, in three different scents.
I believe it was Fried Apple Pie, Creme Brulee, and
Strawberry Shortcake. And then the best part is that
it has her recipes on the back of the box.
