Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Everything

Hey, Merry Christmas, Merry whatever and Happy everything to you all!

All is good here... my time is winding down and I will be back in Cairo next week, God Willing.

Its been a fabulous trip, too short really, but I enjoyed myself as always.

The stores enjoyed me too cause I been a shoppin' fool! And so, I'd like to thank a few...

Thank you ebay for making me extra money to spend while I was here, how i love and missed you so.

Thank you dollar stores for you have so many amazing chinese made products that IF we have them in Cairo are so overpriced.

Thank you Walmart, although you are no longer a made in the USA products store, you have deals that rock.

Oh Nordstrom, your walls make me feel whole. Although I can't afford too much of what you have to offer, your jewlery, shoes and perfumes make me sooo happy! (btw-you HAVE to try Eau Mega by Viktor & Rolf, OMG!!!! I did treat myself to a big bottle thank you very much).

Ross, oh Ross, what can I say? You have given me so many purses and shoes this trip, all such great deals, thank you.

And how can i not thank Last Chance (Nordstrom Rack). Although it seems you sell returns from 100+ years ago, you always that little treasure or two and I did find them this time, so thank you.

So Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to you all, my wonderful, faithful blogging peeps, i'll see you when i get back to the land of sand and pharaohs. xoxoxoxoxo


  1. Merry Christmas hon, hope you had a good one and that your trip home is uneventful :)

  2. Am so happy that you are having a good time..

    ..and maybe your shopping trail is the reason why recession seems to be receding! :-)

    Have fun!!!

  3. So glad that you're having a GREAT trip...and are enjoying your shopping fix!

    I, too, am a fan of the dollar stores and Ross. We also have TJMaxx and Marshalls which are along the same lines as a Ross Store...I could easily get lost in those places with no regard to time! :)

    I hope you have an uneventful trip home. Safe travels, my friend!!

  4. Merry Christmas to you too! I hope the rest of your trip is just as wonderful :) It's funny about all those stores and items you don't have available in Cairo - I can't imagine how different it is there!

  5. glad you enjoyed your trip! i plan on taking advantage of the post-holiday sales this weekend. :)

    safe travels home!

  6. Wishing the best for you for the new year. I've been gone for so long, I thought I would stop by and catch up. I'll keep you in my thoughts come January!!!

  7. Merry Christmas, Wishy. Lots of love to you. Nordy's is my favorite store, btw. I knew there was a reason we were friends ;)

  20. Hello!

    My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

    I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

    Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at . I have included the criteria for participation below.

    Best of luck to you!
