We Believe?

A risk of online shopping is the risk of marked packages arriving at the door. Online toy companies are notorious for shipping that one really great item, complete with its own box and a giant color picture of the item on it, completely ruining the look of shock on Christmas morning. Because of this, for several years, I have limited my online ordering to amazon only. They ship theirs in big boxes with "Amazon" printed all over it, but nothing else.

Until this year.

This year, they didn't ship everything from their warehouse, but a few things came directly from vendors. Of course, those vendors stamp their names all over them, so it is no secret that I ordered a game or two. Unfortunately, it was supposed to be a secret. Until Christmas morning, ifyaknowwhatimean.

So today, another box showed up.

Dave: "What is it?"
Me: "Oh, you know, Christmas presents with the entire contents of the box printed on the outside so that everyone knows what I got them."
Nate: "Are those the presents you hide and then pretend are from Santa? Because you know I don't believe in him."

I'm a little behind in my blog-reading so was just reading the WalMart story -- was laughing hysterically. I hate WalMart and refuse to shop there. I like Target. It's pretty. It's organized. It's new. It makes me feel good. WalMart's mile high warehouse ceilings put me over the edge.
Are you in Fillmore? Are you getting the same snowstorm we're getting in SLC? Welcome to Utah!

I know, I need to just switch over to Target, but Wal Mart is 2 blocks away. And this is why it continues to suck me back in.

I was in Provo with my mom, but blissfully I am home and only getting rained on. :)
