Thank You

First let me thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sweet comments and positive thoughts for my baby girl, Sadie Kate! She is doing just fine now. Of course, she was doing just fine before she started seizing but I am trying not to dwell on that too much. The bottom line is that if she does not have these episodes but once or twice a year, no medicine will be needed. So far all of her tests are coming back normal. It was a miserable evening but we both survived. It did take her about 24 hours to feel like herself again though. At the moment she is snuggled up on her blankie on the she's just happy as a clam! Thank goodness that morning I made my Cherry Chicken. It was beyond perfection to have a warm and yummy meal waiting for us when we returned home from the vet visit.

Now on to some other topics....

Did y'all know that Turkey Day is one week away? How the heck did that happen? Good gravy I am not ready. Well I am fine with Thanksgiving arriving but I had big plans to be finished with my Christmas shopping by December 01. I am getting there but am going to have to move into high gear if this is to be fully accomplished this year. I just really enjoy the holiday season so much more when I don't have to fuss with shopping. I don't fare well with crowded shopping malls. I melt down and leave. Thank goodness for online shopping. And a crappy economy providing me with free shipping codes out the wazu!

Do you know what gift-related thing I look forward to most at Christmas? Wrapping! Oh I save everything to wrap all at one time. I love to coordinate wrap and ribbons for gifts within the same family. I set aside a several-hour time block to have a wrap-a-palooza. Are you gagging from my dorkiness yet? Yes well, I can't help it. Even as a kid, I loved wrapping presents. My best friend Florida and I would shop all day on Black Friday and then would spend Saturday together wrapping all of our goodies. It was so super fabulous!

I am even more in love with my Magic Coat! It is seriously THE BEST COAT EVER! So cozy and warm and comfortable. It feels like air- so light! Oh my fellow cold weather girls, do yourself a favor and buy this coat ASAP! It's magical. I love it!

Hey, has everyone participating in our little Holiday Swap made a connection with your swap partner? If not, let me know so I can help you get in touch with your buddy.

Fed-ex is on my sh*t list right now! They have made me pull out most of my hair over the past week. I think I will be using the Postal Service's Priority Mail from now on! Argh!

And last but not least, I made this little Lilly set for my friend Kim. I love this print- good for boy or girl babies alike. The colors are so retro and the veggies are so fun. She loved it!

I'm glad Sadie Kate is better.
Love online shopping, I've been doing it for the holidays for the past two years. Having worked in malls for so long, I get a little dizzy going in one.
And there is nothing dorky about a thoughtfully, well wrapped gift!!! I've been collecting gift wrap and ribbon all year.
