Gift Card is all I got..

I withdrew $700 yesterday, that was the last  amount of money from my paypal which I reserved to send to my family in the Philippines.  We will send it this weekend  so it will arrive there before Christmas.  I know that my siblings are expecting us  to send them  something.

 So now I am broke lol, but I have 2 Macy's gift cards ($150) that I redeemed from  reading emails at so I told my husband that he could use it to buy me a  wool coat hehehe.  Too bad the last two  gift cards that I redeemed  hasn't arrived yet.  I was hoping that it will arrive  this week so I could use it together with the other two, but luck is not on my side.

Anyhow,  I want a long coat because my coats are just waist long.  I have a long one but it's thin that I couldn't use it in picking  up our daughter in school.  It is getting so cold out there too.   I also plan to buy our daughter a new coat as her coat is getting small on her.

Hubby want   a long coat too but he said that he will just wait till next year as he is has several coats that he could use this year.  My kids wants some toys and we still have to purchase it.   We choose to buy  most of the stuff online because we can log in to our upromise account and we earned some percentage of the amount we shop for our kids  college fund.

How about you, what do you expect to get this year?


  1. not expecting a gift until the end of the year but i'll ask daddy G for his credit card when I do a shopping spree on January. LOL!

  2. Hehehe I will get nothing because I am saving for me and my kids getaway on new year

  8. $700 is huge. I never had that humongous amount in my entire blogging history, LOL! It's probably because I don't do blogging full-time and I hailed from the East.

    As for the thing I wanna have before the year ends, I want to own a new laptop soon. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one ;-)

    May you enjoy the rest of the week.

    All the Best,

  11. Wow, you were able to save $700 in your PayPal account and you will send them all to your relatives in the Philippines. You are so generous indeed. God bless you more for that. I love your family portrait in front of the Christmas tree. I hope that you can buy your wanted long coat and toys for your kids. I don't want anything for myself this Christmas, just a better health. I will just be giving money to my kids so that they can buy whatever they want. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
