I love exciting days....

Yesterday was one of those days where I just kept getting little blessings. 

The first one came when my boss walked into the office first thing yesterday morning. One of my co-workers and I asked him about taking Columbus Day off. She was telling him that where she used to work, they took all the Federal holidays off. Without any persuasion, he agreed. So we now have an unexpected three day weekend. Can I get a WOO HOO?

On Thursday, I got a message from one of my friends who had a milk glass plate she wanted to know if I wanted it. Of course, my answer was yes since it was milk glass. When I got off work, I went and picked it up and fell in love with it. It wasn't just a plate, but the 14" cake plate. I love it. I'm going to make brownies in a round Pyrex cake pan tonight and turn them out on my new plate. Then I'm going to put a lace doily over them and sprinkle powdered sugar. It will be so pretty on my new plate. 

Then when I came home, I had this box waiting for me. 

Thirty-One is always giving us incentives for reaching our goals. The latest is our Believe and Achieve incentive that lasts for 7 weeks. I made my goal the first week.  

The reward was the new Pour and Store in Navy Lotsa Dots that will be coming out in our spring catalog in January. I am in love with this thermal and the pattern is going to become one of my favorites come spring. I can't wait to see what else they come out with in this pattern.  

I just found out yesterday that Double R Farms in Kodak, TN is having their Fall Festival today. I really enjoyed it last year. I think I will head over their today and check out the craft booths, have some Holy Smoke barbecue and listen to the bluegrass/gospel music. It should be a fun time. 

Hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend.
