I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I’m exhausted and am looking forward to a week off from work. I haven’t taken a full week off in a long time and it’s well-deserving. I have lists and lists of things to do but I’m not going to worry if they don’t all get done.
Everyone in the AudreyBella house received everything they asked for and then some. I received the cookware I asked for (dishwasher safe..YAY!) along with a WII! I squealed like a kid when I opened the gift. Husband sure did surprise me.
It was all about J Crew for Christmas. The Boy received some J Crew merino sweaters, a button-down and boxers. MamaBella received a beautiful beaded cardigan that was only in-stores. She saw it when they first brought it in back in September. I saw it on sale a few weeks ago and scooped it right up for her. I bought my grandmother her first piece of J Crew jewelry along with my aunts and first-cousins. They were ooohing and aaahing over their necklaces. And, PapaBella received two long-sleeved tees from J Crew which he really liked, and asked for more! I felt a little like Oprah…”You get J Crew. You get J Crew. You get J Crew.” Haha…
Here’s my Christmas Day outfit, all J Crew, except for the necklace. (pic taken at end of long day = no make-up)
Even though it was quite chilly on Christmas Day, it was pretty warm inside. I’m glad I layered the cardigan and blazer because I was able to be comfortable in just the tee while eating dinner.
I was told last week a small roll-out for Resort/Spring will happen this week at J Crew with a bigger one mid-January. This is probably why they are still having their 30% off on-line and in-stores. My store still had a lot of sale items when I last checked on Thursday. That’s when I bought the blazer. As soon as I saw it go on sale online I went straight there to grab my size. And the 30% off promo was still going on.
I’m staying inside today and not braving the shoppers. Are you checking out the sales today or making returns?
