First Sign of Christmas 2014

Aug
04

I saw the first sign of Christmas at Costco on July 25, 2014.

I don't like getting old.  I am losing excitement on Christmas... I am tired and busy.  I just want to lay down and take a nap.

I hope I will enjoy Christmas this year.  Last Christmas was the worst time of my life (some of you remember... it's getting close to 1 year already)

God bless everyone.

I am sorry for not updating my blog.  Things are changing.  I've been busy.  I am not negative.  I am positive... I'm just busy.  Keep in touch.

Christmas Ham

Dec

Last blog of 2013

I was distracted buring the Christmas season that I almost didn't post this.

I made a ham on Christmas day.  I bought the ham a week before (from Costco).   I made some quick basic side dishes.

Christmas Time is Here

Aug

August 16, 2013

Christmas time is here at Costco.  I am very happy and excited.

My new job is much less stressful, so I will have time to enjoy this holiday season.  I will not spend a lot of money this year.  There will be no Christmas tree.  I am carefully saving money for next Christmas (2014).  I plan to buy a car with whatever the cash I saved.

Have fun.  Don't complain that it's too early for Christmas.  Don't be one of those people who complain, but be the person who enjoy Christmas in August at Costco.

Ah~~ four months to enjoy Christmas at Costco.

First Sign of Christmas 2013

Christmas time is here at Costco.  (July 3, 2013)

I think it will take about 1 more months until we see any more Christmas items other than these ribbons at Costco.  The ribbons came about 3 weeks earlier than I anticipated.  But, I kept my eyes opened.

And "BOOM~!" I found them.

Here we go~~!!

Apr

I would like to remind you that Christmas is coming to Costco in less than 4 months. That's about 17 weeks away from now.

Let the fun begin...

I will have a humble Christmas this year.  But, next year, I will ask Santa for a new (used) car. :)

Costco Shopping - Mrs Scrooge, Adolfo Suits

Sep
15

Ah! it was a glorious Costco shopping today.  It was fun.

I plan to have a BBQ baby back rib Sunday, so I bought a jar of pickle chips to go with it.  I already have ribs and BBQ sauce I got from Costco.  There will be some good eatin'.

Christmas is in full swing at Costco.  I looked at every single item there.  Then I turned back to make one more round.  I love 48" Twinkling LED Snowman.  I hope I will have enough cash to buy it next month.

I saw Costco's Christmas Cookies (European Cookies), but I didn't see Chocolates of the World yet.

Christmas area at Costco was beautiful.  I said hello to parents with their babies playing with Christmas toys.  There were music boxes playing Christmas tuns.  Everyone was smiling.  There were kids checking out toys.

I bought a beautiful water globe and 100 LED lights.

Then there was one old lady.  She was alone and was talking to herself loud "Christmas already?" "It's only September"  "I mean, come on! this is ridiculous" "This is not right"...   She was keep walking and talking around Christmas section to make her point.  But... she was only proving that she was not a happy person (probably doesn't like sex).  She looked mean~!! Foot in mouth

I don't care if Christmas is commercialized.  Christmas makes millions of people happy.  A lot of people don't think about true meaning of Christmas.  That's perfectly fine.  The point is we have fun.  I thank God Christmas is commercialized. To me, it is not right for some people to get angry at Christmas and spread bitterness when we're only trying to have some fun once a year.  We are not hurting anyone.  OK, we are stupid, let us enjoy and spend money. Just let us be...

And I thank Costco for bringing Christmas early.

###

I thought I was done shopping with $50 worth of merchandise in the cart.  Then I saw Adolfo men's suits roadshow. For less than $100, I could have Adolfo suit.  They even had my pants size.  So, I picked up a set.  Ah~!! There is always something at Costco.

So, I ended up spending $150.00+

Now I have three brand new suits that I never wear.  haha~!

###

I spent a lot of time looking at Adolfo Suits, so when I was done shopping, food court was closed.  After Costco, I went to Wal*mart, Home Depot, and Smart and Final.  I came home mighty hungry at 10pm.

First Sign of Christmas at Costco - July 28, 2012

Jul
29

Today is Saturday July 28, 2012.  It was 92 degrees outside.  I didn't have anything to buy today at Costco, but I dropped by at Costco to look for any sign of Christmas.

And I found them~!!  Look at these Christmas ribbons, they look so cute and happy.

This is my first sign of Christmas 2012.

Christmas may seem far away, but here is a run down.

  • Labor Day is 1 month away - This is the last Summer holiday. The peak of Summer is behind us.
  • Halloween is technically a month after Labor Day.
    • At this point, you will see Christmas at a lot of stores - rest of the stores will try to catch up on Christmas decorations.
  • Thanksgiving Day follows 3 weeks after Halloween. 
    • Christmas will be everywhere at this point.

These Christmas ribbons are significant.  This is it...  here it comes...

 Below is a bonus picture.
Halloween item at Costco today.

I freaked out when I saw these ribbons.

I walked up to them an looked closely.  But there was no snow flake design.

Hew~!  I got a little excited there for a moment.
