I realized this morning it's been a week since I last posted. To tell you the truth...the open house just about did me in. It's heck getting old!
I really don't have anything earth shattering to talk about today...so you know what that means doncha? Yeah...one of those long, rambling posts that are all over the place. What's that called...oh yeah...SQUIRREL ALERT!
First order of business is to let y'all know the Pennies For Preemies Pay Pal button is now on mine and Jenn's blogs. Donations are coming in and from the bottom of my heart...thank you. I don't know if I mentioned this before, but in addition to taking things to the parents in the NICU, we're also planning on taking cookies to the hospital staff working Christmas day. These wonderful folks give up Christmas with their families to take care of ours. I truly believe there is a special place in Heaven for health care workers...especially those in the nursing field. Their hearts must be the size of Texas! Just a reminder Debra will be shaking things up in the ol' snow dome home. Starting tomorrow, VIF will be all about getting glittered (as opposed to liquored) up for the holidays. I for one cannot wait to see all the inspiration flowing from my monitor! Would you believe I haven't hung a single silver bell or dangled any icicles? Maybe I'll just print out all y'alls lovely images and scotch tape 'em all over the house!
Y'all know there are all kinds of crazy shopping this weekend with Christmas open houses everywhere! If you can't find somewhere special to go for inspiration...you're just not looking in the right places! I'm planning on attending the Red Shed's for a little merrymaking and shopping. The girls never fail to deliver tons of opportunities to spend money and the shop is so much prettier to look at than Walmart! Maybe I'll see you there?
I'm gonna tell you something now, but you gotta promise to keep it a secret just between us...'kay? It's only 'cause I love you that I'm telling you this, but I have insider information that there will be sale at W&T's on Saturday. I KNOW!!! Crazy talk huh? I got it from the most reliable source...the Head Elfette herself! If you're in the area (Canton is only a mere 25 miles away)...come on buy...I mean by!
OK y'all...gotta run! Santa's workshop is calling my name. BTW...Daphne has photos up from the open house if you'd like to see more...it's gorgeous. Psst...I stole this one from her...don't tell her!
