Deals deals and more deals

I feel like we have had a whirlwind couple of days so I will try and catch you up.
My husband and I have been thinking for a while now about selling some stuff on eBay that we no longer use. I woke up the other day and my hubby had informed me that he had listed his Nintendo DS and was hoping to get $180 for it. He put it as a buy it now for $180 and it was sold in an hour. He also discovered that the IPhone that weren't 3G are selling for $200 to $300 because they are a lot easier to unlock so they can be used on any network. Well we figured new ones are only $200 so we will most likely break even or make some money, why not upgrade.
We are now the proud owners of 2 new IPhone. I figured I would go for a fun pink case this time.

That evening we went to go celebrate New Years with a group of friends. Very low key but still lots of fun!

The boys of course pulled out the computer to watch funny things on YouTube. I love this picture but unfortunately it was the only one taken all evening.

Today I decided to see what deals I could find. Have I ever shared with you that I love finding amazing deals? I rarely buy clothing that isn't on sale unless it is something really special. Purses are my exception. I found 4 button up shirts today for hubby for $12 each at J Crew.
I found a knee length shirt that was a soft wool in winter white, perfect with brown boots. Unfortunately it looked terrible when I tried it on, it was very thin and too see through. I was shocked that I left my favorite store with 4 items for him and none for me.
I also had it in the back of my mind that I would look for some Hanky Pankys on sale because I don't know what Hubby would do if I came home with $18 underwear. I have wanted to try these for a while but when I saw all the comments that were left on Mojito Maven's post I knew I had to get some. I was able to get 4 pairs of really cute ones for $28 total rather than $75 that they would have been. How crazy is it that they are one size fits all, they fit size 2 to 14.
