The tree is up, the decorations are out, the cards are a work in progress, I've got quite a bit of shopping done, and some baking done....hopefully the baking will be done by next weekend....and the cards out.

As you will see below...I had a "blast from the past" memory the other day....all the sudden I randomly remembered making Reader's Digest Christmas Trees as a kid (girl scouts probably)....and I had to make I got the Reader's Digest....and started folding...then when I made a trip to Hobby Lobby for other stuff, I got some gold spray paint and some gold stars....and Voila! Probably only us baby boomers will remember enjoy fellow boomers!

Cara comes home on Kirk hung her curtain rod, and a shelf....almost ready for her arrival now (I painted her room a month ago!)

Saturday Kirk and I started the day with a 10:00 a.m. manicure and pedicure....yep, both of us! It was free! A friend owns the beauty school in town, so she gave us free ones. Then we did stuff around the house in the afternoon (ok, I did....Kirk worked for IBM---argh)...then we went to dinner at Applebees, reviewed our shopping list, and did some shopping. About 10 minutes after we got home (10pm) Danae arrived with a bunch of friends (10 or so?) so we got out the salsa, chips, cookies, pop and I made some quesadillas. They scarfed it all down then started a game of Apples to Apples....and Kirk and I went to bed to the wonderful sound of teens having good clean fun! Blah. (to quote Jackie!) least I'll have a new outfit to wear! I gotta tell ya....bargain of the week.....I stopped in Anne Taylor Loft to check out the sale rack - I had a "spend $50 and get $25 off" coupon I wanted to use. The sale rack was really marked down....and for Saturday only, there was an additional 15% off purchases.....I got a beautiful pair of pants and a pair of gouchos....and a headband...and my total was $19.88!!! Yippee!

Until later.....have a great week everyone!
