So guess who fell off the Tito’s vodka wagon?
Oh yes, just a couple days on the cheap stuff and my husband is already back to drinking his glitzy Grey Goose. Some people simply have no recession willpower.
What’s that Rick? Oh, he wants me to tell you that he bought it on sale in Jersey.
It still cost more than Tito’s. I can promise you.
Well, no matter because I already have another genius way we can save just bundles.
Like some of you, we still have gifts to buy. I was kind of stressing over the whole thing until I saw this sign in the West Village.
Yes, That’s Benny’s Burritos! Now it just seems so obvious. Buy all your loved ones a Benny’s Burritos gift certificate for Christmas and Hanukkah! Nothing rings in the holidays like a Chicken Chipotle burrito.
And if you’re looking for free activities… Well, Santa is totally free (you know, if you don’t count the cab ride there and the overpriced hot chocolate afterwards).
Summer hesitantly put in her x-mas order…
But Dylan wasn’t getting anywhere near that jolly, obviously untrustworthy guy from up North…
“Dylan, don’t you want to tell Santa what you want for Christmas,” I asked.
“No. Daddy is telling him what I want,” she responded.
Apparently, she’s got the gift thing covered. That girl sure knows how to delegate.
After visiting with Santa, Summer tried to convince her daddy that he should buy her this little stuffed deer.
The cost for this mini deer at ABC Home & Carpet?
If Summer wants that dumb deer, she better go back and have a little chat with Santa. Because her ‘rents are too busy blowing their money on overpriced vodka.
P.S. Happy Hanukkah to everyone.
We pretty much celebrate every holiday around here. Well, not Arbor Day because that holiday is pure evil, my friends. But definitely all the rest.
