Happy Veteran's Day to all of our blessed Veteran's. I am so grateful to all of the Men and Women in our country that have served for my freedom. I will never under estimate the sacrafices they have made for us and I will always keep them in my prayers.
Because today is Veteran's Day I have the day off from work. Unfortanetly I had to go in for a 1/2 day, but it was still better than working a full day plus it was very quite because only 2 other people were working. So it was a very productive day which makes me feel better.
After work I ran an few errands. Stopped at Meijer to kill some time before a Dr. appointment. It was fully decorated for Christmas which put me in more of the Christmas spirit than I am already. It is also nice to just leasurely brouse without having a kid tell you he is ready to go. :) I saw a couple of cute things that I loved, but didn't buy. I have adopted a love for magazines just like my Sissy. I usually check out the new ones and try hard to not buy every single one. There are a bunch of Christmas only magazines out and while flipping through one, I saw this little guy. I snapped his picture on my iPod because I think I might be able to make him. If I ever have some spare time, I just might try. Isn't he cute? He was in the new "Holiday" by Matthew Mead magazine and I just found his blog.......here.
Next I was off to the baking isle, cause' it is Christmas season and all. I found these sweet fellars and thought they were the most adorable thing! It was a Cocoa Trimming Kit that cost $5.00 and came with marshmellow snowmen and candy cane sticks. Wouldn't that be cute to stick in some cocoa with your kids? I thought so.
Instead of the cute snowmen or magazine, I went with these.......yum! I love peppermint and dark chocolate.
The creativity juices are flowing with the holidays quickly approaching. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving and then some Ho, Ho, Ho!
