Pow! An Idea Just Hit Me!

Oh this is good.
I was just sitting here....pondering life & such. Wondering how a Princess like me has to sweep a floor covered in carrots & corn & then change a dirty diaper.
Where is that damn maid!???
She is always taking time off.


Anyway, while I was pondering life, I began to think of Christmas & different gifts I must get.
I know. I know...
It's not even Memorial Day.
Stay with me people.


One of the hardest people on my list to buy for is my mother in law.
Never know what to get her.
Then it hit me!
I will get her a mailbox.
Everyone loves stuff for their house, right?
So in my quest to be frugally frugal & be on top of things I started searching for mailboxes.
I was brought to this site Mailboxes.
They have everything imaginable in the mailbox genre.
Now she likes Lighthouses so I took a gander & I found Lighthouse Mailboxes!!
The one that I linked to is only $69 & comes with a one year guarantee!!!
Woo! Love a guarantee where I don't have to pay extra for it, like say at some big, blue electronics stores!!


I was also thinking that a mailbox would make a great housewarming gift.
I would love to receive one & there is a great variety to pick from at http://www.mailboxixchange.com/ Plus they also have a ton of Curbside Decor to pick from like birdbaths, door knockers, doorbells & country bells.


Also at http://www.mailboxixchange.com/ they have firepits which I would love to get for my backyard. That way in the cooler summer/early autumn temperatures we can still sit outside and enjoy the outdoors but be warm at the same time.


So I think I am down one gift...only a billion more to go!!!!
I wonder just how many people need mailboxes on my gift list! LOL


Well I must run....Farmer Wants a Wife is On & I just have to see who is able to catch their chicken!!!


Woops out!
