It's beginning to look a lot like....



Christmas! The beau and I went out this weekend and bought our Christmas decorations. You have no idea how excited I was while we were perusing the aisles! He was such a trooper too; especially putting up with my indecisiveness..."should we have gold, silver and red ornaments, or just gold and red, or maybe green and silver, or a combo??" I am dying to do a theme this year, but the ol' budget won't allow for it. So we went with white lights and gold/red ornaments. I am hoping to go back this next weekend for the sales and get some "specialty" ornaments that can go along with the gold/red combo. We also bought our outdoor lights and garland. I can't wait to get it all up! We were both itching to do it yesterday, but thought our neighbors would think we were overdoing it. Friday can't come soon enough!

This weekend is a short one at work and I am so looking forward to spending some time with my family and my grandmother who is coming into town. I can't wait to just hang out with her and talk. She was my inspiration when it came to cooking. I loved baking with her and my mom, especially around the holidays. Unfortunately, in the last couple of years she has come down with Dementia and doesn't really remember much about cooking. She made the most fabulous meals though!

I hope everyone has a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!!
