where have i been? i didn't realize i hadn't posted in so long. it is that busy time of year. i hosted thanksgiving. seven relatives stayed for three nights. it was not as crazy as it sounds. it was rather nice. i enjoyed seeing every inch of my house being appreciated. the weather was lovely, so the porch was even in full swing and i just loved it.
my design class girls continue to impress me. such a sweet, talented bunch. they are working on individual christmas tree designs, a local scavenger hunt, and in-class projects each day. i send them to many of your blogs for inspiration. i mean, you inspire me, so i know it works :)
tomorrow is my husband's birthday. so i got him this. he will love it. haha.
today, i went to the dentist. and since my dentist reads my blog, i will put this nicely. the horse pill motrin she gave me was NOT big enough. :) i wear invisalign braces. they rock. but holy pain. today she filed (yes, like your nails) in between each of my little sensitive teeth. a lot. and then put my new liner back in. i told her i still love her. i really do. but, um, ouch.
i am getting everyone the same gifts for christmas this year. my mom and dad, my brother, my grandparents, my brother in law...they are all getting the same thing. of course i can't tell you what it is yet, but this stuff, mainly one thing in particular, we love so much, i thought everyone must share our joy. it's kind of like a bethy's favorite things christmas. :)
the stuff in the picture at the top will be going on my tree. when we get it. we are behind here in the decorating. but, that doesn't mean i am not thinking about it...or shopping for it!
my new favorite holiday treat is a caribou coffee peppermint green tea. you must go in and get a medium because it is the only size that comes in the beautiful aqua snowflake cup. it is the happiest little gift you can give yourself while you are running all of your holiday errands. in fact, go get one. it is my treat:)
and speaking of treats. you want to know who won the cool club drawing? suburban mom! yippppeee!! so, katherine, you stranger you, send me your address! i won't publish it, and i will send you a very cool gift (courtesy of the cool club).
so i will try to be a better poster. and a better holiday decorator. and i will try not to ramble so much next time. too much tea.
