boxing day shopping: mini haul

We all have our traditions. For my mom and I? It is to go shopping on Boxing Day. Even if we don't really need anything...or don't feel like going out....it is something we do. Just because! In a way, it extends the holiday just a little bit longer. I think we both like that idea. Especially since Christmas always seems to zoom by. 

Today I wanted to show you what I bought on Boxing Day. I know this post is a little bit late but I am still catching up on life, it seems! Finally I got around to photographing everything and putting it all away. There are a few pieces from Ardene's, the Disney Store, H&M, Sephora, and even Wal Mart. Because it just wouldn't be Boxing Day without picking up a few cheap DVDs. There are a few other things I bought this year (like a gingerbread onesie) but they have already been worn and are currently sitting in my laundry hamper. Oops! So without further ado, here is my Boxing Day mini haul.....

It was a really fun day. My mom and I were pretty careful about what we bought. We stuck to sales and heavily discounted items only. Then we got a tasty lunch and gabbed for hours. Afterward, my dad came to pick us up and dropped me back off at the apartment. (That was weird. I am still not used to being dropped off rather than going home with them.) Later that night, my husband and I went to see his family for a holiday dinner. Overall? It was a special day that I smile remembering. 

How did you spend Boxing Day? Have you bought anything recently?
