Post Long Weekend Rambling

We had a great holiday. Long weekends with my people are my favorite.

I made the switch from Pumpkin Spice creamer to Peppermint Mocha creamer. Needless to say I've been drinking a lot of coffee. Have ya tried it??

We ate a lot, and relaxed, and decorated...

We watched movies, baked some goodies, and started to listen to Christmas music around the clock.

Remember how I said we were making pies for Ella's school?? We won a prize. I'm not kidding, it won 1st place! I still laugh just thinking about it...I'm not a real seasoned pie maker. AND, it was the easiest pie I've ever made, my friends. Funny, huh?

Oh, and you guys, I got an awesome deal on a "under the cabinet" stereo the day after Thanksgiving. And let me tell you, I don't know how I cooked without it. It is SO great!

(are there some southerners out there laughing cause I say "you guys"? I lived in Baton Rouge for a while and they always thought it sounded so funny! Some of my favorite people live there, I miss them.)

The girlie's can get a little carried away sometimes with the new stereo and before I know it there is a small dance party underway while I'm trying to make dinner. Totally worth it though.

Seriously, Christmas tunes while you're cooking, it's a gift. It's like a whole new world to me.

Anyway, thats all the rambling for now. The later it gets, the harder it is for me to form a thought. You understand.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

We, too, had a wonderful weekend.

I LOVE my Christmas music ... and I especially love my under-the-cabinet cd player so that I can listen to Christmas music while I'm in the kitchen. Oh yea! I got mine for Christmas a few years ago. Had no idea what I'd been missing.

I love my under-the-cabinet radio too! If it ever broke, I would replace it in a heartbeat. Glad you guys had a good Thanksgiving!

Reading about your coffee creamer made me realize that it's time to put away the pumpkin flavors. I will miss them. Cheers to peppermint mocha tho!!
You're so funny. I always say "you guys". Is it really a southern thing? It is comical to call your girlfriends guys though.

You are so funny!! I just took my laptop in the kitchen and turned on the radio.
