A Gift For You!

Standard

Hello Everyone!
During the holidays, I was lucky enough to receive quite a few gift cards. Personally, I love them! I’m a huge girly-girl, so I love any excuse to go shopping! In fact, I (and my little brother) have been receiving gift cards for Christmas from our family for so many years that we have made it a tradition to use them the day after Christmas at the plethora of post-holiday sales! We seriously set an alarm and wake up at the crack of dawn and go out shopping all day.
Other people, however, think of gift cards as a “cop-out” for putting the time into a real gift. I think it depends on the circumstances. For example, buying a gift card for the mall for my grandma may qualify as “coping-out” on a gift. However, if someone bought this for me, I think it’s a perfect gift because someone thought of me enough to know that I enjoy shopping, and would love to have some extra funds to do so!
So, how do you feel about gift cards? Do you feel like they’re a cop-out on a “real” gift? Or do you like to spend spend spend?!

The More People I Meet, The More I Love My Dogs!

Standard

Wow, I haven’t blogged in quite some time! With the end of the fall semester and the holidays, I have been so incredibly busy!
I know that everyone has crazy families, but all I have to say is, I LOVE MY DOGS!!!! As I have mentioned before, I have three Italian greyhounds, and I love them so very much! All dogs, (but my dogs especially) have a way of giving unconditional love that very few people can give. No matter what I feel, think, say, or do, those dogs just love me to pieces! I love seeing them at the end of a long day, and when my family’s love is a little short, I just need a little kiss from my puppies, and it all melts away!
Even when they don’t mean to, family can be mean, and sometimes downright cruel. But a dog’s love is unwaveringly unconditional.
