A nice Friday...

Hi gals!

Hope you all have had a nice Friday.
Mine was a good one.
Hubby and I got out for a few hours, ran a couple of errands then did some Christmas shopping.

Yeah..I decided that since I had not been too crafty this year..and I kept drawing blanks on what to make for whom..we decided to go shopping instead.

I did manage to create a few wee homemade things.(yep..few and wee they were ..ha) I mean I really was drawing blanks and wracking my brain about it.

So it's not all 100 percent store bought goods, but anyhow...It was fun deciding what to put in each families gift box.:0)

Now the only thing left is to find a few things for our own crew.
---------------
For one of my hubby's gifts ...I managed to be able to get a great deal from a special mentioned on a recent episode of Oprah. ..yeah..I was able to get that deal from snapfish.com...it turned out awesome and I can't wait for hubby to see it. It really will be great. It was regularly $29.99..the special was a 48 hr. deal where all's you had to pay was shipping of $6.99.(oh gosh that sounds so cheap huh?)

Cool!..yeah I like a good deal...ha
(o.k. sorry to be so secretive, but you know..hubby might happen upon my blog and whoops..figure it out ..so..that's enough about that..ha)

(If you want an idea of what it is, just look for the item on snapfish that starts at $29.99)
-----------------------
Haven't figured out what to get the kiddos yet..but I'm sure I'll get it figured out.
-------
So hard to believe that the year has zipped right on by and here we are at nearly Thanksgiving and then right around the corner is Christmas.
-----------
Well..this evening I did mange to get the kitchen pantry all organized.
No more scooting this item over to get to that item and so forth..now I can tell where things are.
As Martha would say.."It's a good thing"..ha

I'm afraid Martha would have freaked if she'd have seen my kitchen pantry before the organization. Shoot even now that it's organized she still might freak..ha. A Martha I am not..even though my family calls me a neat freak and Bree..ha...all's I do is roll my eyes and say "puleeze!"
-----------
Let's see what else is new?

Well..I think that's about all for today.

Oh..I have got to get a new photo of our fur baby "Collin" up on my blog.
He is almost a year old now..can you believe it??
Oldest daughter and I groomed him yesterday..yeah..he's a right wiggle worm when it comes to grooming..he's not too keen on those clippers ...so it took 3 1/2 hrs from bathing, to drying him off, to clipping and shaving. But..the way I look at it..I managed to save over $40.
So it was worth it..and he looks so handsome now.
I will have to get a picture for sure.

Have a lovely evening!

Hi Tina,

Stopped by to read your latest entry and I'm leaving you a comment today too. I know it is fun to get them and see who actually does stop by. :-) I have you on bloglines so I do read all your entries, but shame on me, I don't always leave comments.

I'm looking forward to the next issue of Small Town Living, and can't wait to see a picture of Collin.

Have a great day!
