What a day Mom and I had yesterday! We headed down with our rolling cart and credit cards in tow, and boy the Bizarre did not disappoint this year. I am completely finished with all of my Christmas shopping!! I even found something for my big brother, and the Bazaar isn't exactly geared toward men:) Mom and I arrived at 11:00 and we didn't leave until 6:45 the doors closed at 7! We took two quick breaks for caffeine and gobbled down some lunch but we were two girls on a mission, and we made out like bandits! We made two trips to the car (yes even with a huge rolling bag) and the parking attendants could not believe we kept going back in for more!
Here is a big picture of all the goodies I picked up, my mom took all of her stuff home but she got tons of adorable stuff as well! I stuck to my budget (well sorta!) and came away with everything I needed!
