Holiday Paty & Yankee Swap

December 13th, 2008 at 07:42 am

Tomorrow night is the holiday party for the tarot store. It's at a chinese restaurant. BF and I are both going. I think it will be fun, but I am hoping it is not expensive. Since this is the first one we've been to, I don't know if we have to buy our own dinners or what.

They are doing a Yankee Swap, but BF and I have elected not to participate. They asked for each person who wanted to do it to bring in a $20 gift. WHAT?!?! Every other Tankee Swap I've done had like a $5 or $10 limit. But $20 a gift, and there being 3 of us, well, we don't have $40 extra bucks for some gift swapping. So, we are not going to be a part of it, but I also know of at least one other person who will be at the party but isn't going to be involved.

And speaking of the holidays, last night I finished shopping for sister. That means only Mums is left, and I need to make L's gift. So cliose to being done! Of course, then comes all the wrapping... Smile

Anywho, today I am meeting my sister for a matinee movie and lunch. Looking forward to it, but I will have to be careful to order something not only inexpensive from the menu, but also healthy and sugar and flour free. Happy Saturday everyone!

    We don't have our Yankee Swap at our Christmas party, but we will be having it on the 23rd. It's just the ladies in the company though who participate. Our limit is $20 also. I picked up a gift card using my mypoints - did the same thing last year. Smile

    We also all go in together to get gifts for the top 3 honcho's. It works out to around $25 per person. I suggested the idea of purchasing a heifer for each one of them (heifer.org) since all of them are way rich and can buy anything they want. That went over like a lead brick.

    Hope you have fun at your party!

    We do a $20 limit swap with my dad's family Christmas eve. I bought the gifts last year after Christmas! I always end up giving a gift worth way more than $20 and I pay way less than $20.

    $20 is way too much for a work party if you ask me!
