It's almost time!!!!

Ahhh, one of my fav days of the year...**THE** best shopping day of the year is right around the corner! Hubby & I send the girls to Nana's house to spend the night after Turkey dinner & Hubby & I get up early to shop! He is such a good sport about it & we love that time together & look forward to it each year! It is so much more to me than just great sales! I love the bustling of people, the race for a great parking spot, the Starbucks shopping breaks, everyone bundled up in sweaters, the cold weather, Christmas music on the radio & so on! It really starts my Holiday season for me & I can't wait for this years shopping marathon!!

To Decorate or Not To Decorate...

I am usually at least a little organized around this time of year, enough to put out all of those cute, whimsical Turkey decorations! Well, not this year! I think I am going to skip the Turkey day decos & move right on into Christmas! The girls keep asking where all of our fav Turkey day decos are, however we are literally NEVER home these days! I dream of those wonderful afternoons after my girls get out of school & we can do fun activities together... Alas, these never seem to happen, with Girl Scouts, gymnastics, church & so on... I pick them up from school & we are off, sometimes not getting home until around 7:30! So, in conclusion, the Turkey decos will stay in the attic this year & I will probably dust off the Christmas decos a bit early!!
