Weekend Wrap Up

It sure is hard to get back to work today after being off for 5 days. I feel a little lazy this morning. I didn't decorate for Christmas yet, I am going to do it one day this week. But here are some fun things from the weekend.

I have been wanting some pine cones for a centerpiece idea, but we don't have any pine trees. I asked my granddaughter, Alexis, to bring me some when she came over for Thanksgiving. She is little Miss Memory 'cause look what nice ones she brought me. 

But she surprised me even more by having a bag of these for me. I love them and never even thought about little ones. But I have an idea for them. 

Friday and Saturday were spent shopping. I got up at 4:00 Friday and by 4:30, I was heading out the door with my favorite Christmas shirt and my favorite Christmas earrings. My earrings say JOY as well. 

Saturday was our annual Christmas trip to Turkey Creek and lunch at Steak and Shake. They had a new dessert....Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich. My number one weakness in food is ice cream and my favorite cookie is Oreo so I had to try. I guess you can see by the extra spoon, my daughter wasn't going to let me try it alone. Oh my gosh, I highly recommend this. It is bigger than an Oreo though the picture doesn't look it. It was perfect for two of us to share. 

I did get my two little poinsettias I wanted for just .88 cents each at Walmart. 

And I got a Douglas Fir wreath for just $4.46. It smell so good. I love fresh greenery at Christmas. 

I haven't put up my tree or decorated yet. That is on my list for this week. I did go ahead and hang my front door wreath though. I had to get the fall piece down so I could get my Christmas spirit going. 

At church yesterday, I had another gift from my secret sister. I fell in love with this little guy. And then when I realized his belly was a candy jar and it was full of Junior Mints (my other weakness) I just fell even more in love. His belly will be empty before the day is out. 

My hubby surprised me last night when he came home from work. He had brought me a large bowl of Buddy's soft serve ice cream...off for just me! Have I mentioned my love affair with ice cream? Hubby is the best and he sure knows what I like. 

Hope everyone has a great week.
