As with most people, this week was a pretty busy week.
We had a VERY Happy Thanksgiving. I brined a turkey for the first time and we all LOVED it. I will continue to do that from now on. I was in the kitchen most of the day and when it was time to eat, it was devoured in less then 20 minutes. *sigh* But it was worth it to fill those happy tummies! We also realized that it was our 1st Thanksgiving in our new home. In just a few days we will have officially been here 1 full year.
Thursday night my BFF Kathy and I braved the crazy people of Wal-mart and set off for our Black “Friday” deals. We got there about 9:45 pm and I was home in my comfy bed by midnight. I never actually made it to Friday. LOL! Oh the irony. People were crazy but I never go with the intention of getting everything on my list. I go for the pure excitement of it all. All and all we had a blast and I came home with some seriously great deals on things my family needed.
This year, I’ve done my Christmas shopping a little differently. I think I’ve done 70% of it online and I love it. Just about everyone is offering free shipping right now so why leave your home to fight the crowded streets and stores? I’d much rather sit in my pajamas, sipping coffee and shop.
My hubby got the Christmas decorations down from the attic yesterday. So it’s go time. Let the games begin!
This year we will be decorating our gingerbread houses Thursday the 8th of December. (Yes, I actually plan the day in advance. This is serious business here. LOL!) I hope you will be around for the ever exciting voting process.
Well I guess that’s it for now!
I’ll leave you with some pictures from Thanksgiving Day!
