Yep! Martinis with the girls! Now that is the way to end a long shopping day! And of course extra olives! Here's the girls...Cheri of Cheri's Hair Studio and Jodi of Elite Electrolysis!!
That was a Black Raspberry Cosmos...I had two and then took the photo of the girls! Ha! So blurry I couldn't use it!! Sigh! But the one of Cheri turned out! Jodi brought us pressies! A handpainted wine glass...a huge wine glass. Thanks Jodi!!
I shopped all day, yesterday! But finally finished up with some miscellaneous gifts. Fun! And no crowds. I had to stop by the perfume counter and check out my favorite scents...better hurry Dr. John...some are getting low in stock on the shelves!! Sigh!!
Talked to my DIL, Ginger Sunday and they are coming on the 21st to stay with us and shop till you drop! Then we will all drive back to Gallup on the 23rd and spend Christmas there. Let us hope the weather holds!! One never knows at this time of year. Yikes! Anyway, I am busy with my slow cooker recipes to find dishes for those two days. I found a breakfast casserole dish....so cool! I will let you know how it turns out. Cooks all night on low!! Also found one for a pineapple glazed ham...now that is a yum for sure!!
Got my buffet decorated...here it is...simple yet effective!!
And look at this sunrise!!!!
Christmas in 14 days!! I am so excited! Spending time with family and friends! Super! I will be wrapping and stuffing these next few days. I just love this time of year! I wear a badge that says, " It is okay to say Merry Christmas...I bring to you glad tidings of great joy". Lots of smiles and some frowns but heck..,.we say Happy Halloween or Happy Thanksgiving...so geez!! Just saying.....!
Another morning...another sunrise...WOW!!
Will the world end soon? Will they agree on the financial situation in this country? Will Sandy victims get the help they need in a timely fashion? Hmmm...Katrina victims are still waiting! Sheesh!
As for all these other things...who knows! We have no say and no control. Very frustrating. Talking about our lives...not their's! It does not affect them! That is just all kinds of wrong!
Merry Christmas....go and hug someone! And give a buck to the bell ringers!!
Make sure and visit Stacy at Stacy Uncorked!! I am sure there is a whole lot of Randomness going on. Enjoy!
Have a magical and blessed day!
