Where did the last two weeks go? I always think I'm ready for the holiday's but when they get close I panic. I realize I am in no way ready at all. Then I also think I can bust out all of this stuff in no time at all. So what do I do? I stand in my sewing room staring at everything for awhile, then turn around and go back upstairs. I realize I can't do it. But I still put that pressure on me. Every single year. Yes, I know it comes every year at the same time. Last year I remember even saying that I was starting in January making gifts. Which I think I did, but now I can't remember what I made or where I put what I made. There is another problem I have. MEMORY!! GONE!!
At least I had a very nice Thanksgiving. We went over to my little sisters house. Skinny one as I love to call her. And yes I admit, I'm very jealous of that fact. How does she eat chocolate, pastries and Starbucks every single day and stay that way? I'm on the same diet and it's not working out for me so well. And no, that's not food on my lip, I had a huge gigantic fever blister. lolol Probably from my healthy diet that I practice.
Once November hits, it's all about the eating for me. NO time to lose weight. I say gain and gain big!! That's my motto. Take for instance, this pumpkin pie. Our realtor that sold us out house 2 1/2 years ago, emailed and asked if we'd like to get a free pumpkin pie from a local bakery for Thanksgiving? Well............uhhhhhhh let me think for a split second. YESSSSSSS!!!!! And can I have some Cool Whip too? This was the best pumpkin pie ever. The crust sooo flaky and the pie, well it just melted in your mouth. Pure heaven!!! Did I say these are the best realtors? If your selling a house in St.Louis let me know. Bob and Jan would love to help you out. You too can have a pumpkin pie maybe next year. And maybe me too if you give them a call.
Turkey!! This bird was mm mmm good. My brother in law makes it every year and he says his secret is: BUTTER!! Lots of butter. I say bring it on and let's not waste time shall we? That had to be the best juiciest white meat ever. Am I making you hungry? See that's how it all starts for me too. I talk food, then I have to eat food. I watch the Food TV channel and I cook, I cook, then I eat. See where I'm going with this?
Ok I'll stop talking about eating. How about shopping? That's the second best thing I love to do. Went back to my favorite place and took some pictures before Thanksgiving. Oh wait!! These are my two handsome, wonderful boys!! I'm so happy I get to spend the holiday's with them now. It's sooooo nice. And guess what? Boo had an extra airline ticket and gave it to me for my trip to LA in January. Now I'll be for sure seeing Beth, Yvette and my BFF and going to Road to CA. YIPPEEEE. 5 glorious days!! Thank you Boo.
I seriously want that red chair. If I go down there next week and it's there it might be coming home with me. I LOVE IT. And that red cabinet. I spend so much money everytime I go in this place.
See that red pillow in the chair? Hunka went there and bought it for me as a surprise. I love those hooked pillows. It's mine now. All mine!! I have to say when I showed him the pillow and he saw the price tag he said, "HOW MUCH is that pillow?" MEN! They just don't get it do they? haaaaa I should have said it's PRICELESS.
My pillow. Cute isn't it? He bought it for my Anniversary gift along with a Nordstroms gift card which is the perfect gift I think. I think I'll be married another year now. :)
Here's a close up of my chair. And see the white snowman pillow? It's like the red one Hunka bought me. I love it too. Hint hint. Maybe while he's there he can load up that chair.
Wouldn't you love to have this bed?
This little tree came home with me.
Loved the santa paper garland.
Hope you enjoyed the tour for now. I have more I'll post next along with some of my Christmas decorating. I've started and have trees everywhere. Thanks for stopping by!!! And I hope you and your families had a great Thanksgiving.
