Did everyone have a fabulous weekend?! Aside from still being stuck in this hotel for part of the time, ours was wonderful! I’m so excited that I got all of my Christmas shopping done for the girls without having to set foot in a store.
We spent Thanksgiving in Waikiki at the Hale Koa. During the day, the girls did some swimming, and for dinner they had a nice buffet. We also jumped at the opportunity to spend the night in a different, much nicer hotel. Boy, do I miss that fluffy mattress.
Friday morning, Hubster and I woke up and comfortably browsed the ToysRUs website for gifts for the girls. We got an idea of what we wanted, and then headed down to the pool again. After checking out, we did some shopping around Waikiki and then headed back to our temporary home.
I set a budget of $200 for both girls, and I’m happy to say that we only went over by $25. I’m going to go ahead and blame ToysRUs shipping charges for that. Unfortunately, we learned that those free shipping deals don’t apply to Hawaii, plus there was an extra shipping charge. Good thing for my Target REDcard. With it, I got an additional 5% off and actual free shipping.
The weekend brought crappy weather, which led to us staying mostly indoors. Boo. Hubster returns to work today and is taking the car with him, so we’ll see if I decided to venture out with the girls in the stroller. I can’t wait to finally move into our house and receive our belongings. I’m kinda bummed and jealous that everyone has their decorations out, and it’ll still be a little bit until ours are up.
