So, I've been a bit of a bad blogger but really, it's the holidays! I've been having fun with the family, working a ton, and enjoying Christmas (aka my favorite holiday). I meant to post a Stacking the Shelves last week but I just didn't have the time. So this is an insanely large post which includes Employee Appreciation weekend, crazy bargains, and my Christmas haul! (And, speaking of being an employee....I was offered regular season employment at Chapters! YAY! I'm really excited, and so grateful that I was chosen). Here is my haul (and apologizes for the poor picture quality, and for the two pics that didn't work)!
