HOLY MOLY! Christmas is almost here!

I don't know what happened to the month. I had planned on doing little blogs up to Thanksgiving, but time just WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOSHED right on by!

So how are you doing on your Christmas shopping? Do you know who hasn't started? Yep, this girl right here.

I got an invite to blog here and there for Best Buy, so I'm excited to be sharing with you soon another thingy I found. And this one is PERFECT for my mother (who thankfully doesn't read my blog). It's #HINTINGSEASON!

I'm decorating my little place tomorrow and will set up my tiny tree and make it look festive in this place.

I have a list and am checking it twice and shopping starts December 5th for me!

Any ideas on what to get coworkers when you're on a budget? How about your boss? Do you buy things for your boss(es)?

My brother and sister in law have both said they want nothing for Christmas. Thanks for the help, guys! LOL So they might get stuck with Reindeer Poop! >,<

Talk to you guys again in about a week! I'll show you what I'm eyeing at Best Buy for my mother. :)

#HintingSeason LG OLED is now at Best Buy!

#HintingSeason is here! I told you that I'll be trying to highlight things that are on my wishlist, on my family's wishlist, etc. Some are attainable for my budget, some are not, but regardless, I'm going to share and drool! I hope you'll comment and share with me things from YOUR wishlists and we can all share some great  gifting ideas together as we approach Thanksgiving and the mad rush to Christmas! 

Today, I am going to drool over the LG OLED television, which you can get at Best Buy! There are televisions and then there are TELEVISIONS.  This is one of those TELEVISIONS and I know my brother would be lusting after this marvelous tv! 

Discover LG OLED TV – The Ultimate Display!

What is OLED TV?

The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21" thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. Learn more here:

Your first kiss. A baby's first steps. The majesty of a desert sunset. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG's latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you've ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.

LG 55EC9300 SKU# 7846019 – OLED TV

· Infinite contrast ratio and stunning color - delivers more natural, lifelike viewing.
· 4 Color Pixel technology enhances color range and accuracy.
· Super thin design (consider how to show visually)
· Find content faster with webOS

Retail price is $3999.99, but you can get it at Best Buy for $500 less for $3499.99. 54 5/8 " diagonally, this is one beautiful screen.

My TV is really old and the lamp inside is fading, making me squint to see anything. It's time to be replaced...but I'm going to slap this on my wishlist and see if Santa and his elves might miraculously bring this to my living room for me!

Can you imagine watching your favorite shows with this level of display?! I bet it would feel like you're in the midst of your show. Zombies coming to get you, blood being splattered, running in fear from the killer, (Hey we just had Halloween and I'm still in scare mode!). Or how about your romantic movie? Drooling over the lead guy, much? Betcha this display would make it feel like you could practically touch him! Geesh!

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the Holiday season! I love the weather, I love the shopping, I love the deals, I love dreaming about presents miraculously appearing in my house, I love daydreaming about the presents I wish I could afford to give. 

I love shopping and making a day of it. I'm excited. I have a new job this year and, while it doesn't pay a ton, cannot wait to start shopping and doing my budget and getting out there this holiday season! 

I'm kinda busy, but I'm going to be blogging and tweeting and talking about new products I come across and find as much as I can. I feel like I've been neglecting my Tries Stuff blog and I have a ton of things I wanna talk about! 

I got a new Influenster box the other day, I just haven't had time to upload my video and start talking about the products. That is incoming soon, probably Sunday! 


Quick! Tell me one thing you're thinking about for the holidays!
