Half Down, Half to Go ;) And I am Not a Scrooge
Today was a great day..I got to sleep in...late :)
Wayne made sure he was home from work in time to watch college football. His favourite team is Notre Dame. I don't care to watch it, but its funny how when I see them running with the ball, I yell..Run, run, run. LOL.
But then I ask...was that your team?
We ran out to get some treats and kitty litter...oh what a great combination, lol.
So I picked up this cheesecake sampler. Not sure if it can be considered a sampler as the servings are full size.
Can you tell my family loves cheesecake, as we ate half of it. We are like scavengers, we all sit around it with forks and just dig in, lol.
It was funny as when I went into Kristy's room to tell her I picked up some cheese cake, she sat up straight, yelled and ran out of her room, teehee.
Lets take a closer look, I know you want to ;)
There is Brownie Swirl, New York Style, Caramel Pecan and lastly Strawberry Sensation.
My fav's are New York Style, Strawberry Sensation and then Caramel Pecan..oh ya, and if those are gone then Brownie Swirl ;)
Onto My Day:
I slept in...just thought I would share that again, teehee.
Then I decided to put up our outdoor Christmas decor.
This was a tough decision for me. If you know me, then you know nothing Christmasy goes up until December and our Christmas tree never goes up until 12 days before Christmas.
No its not because I am a scrooge as some of my friends may think. Its because I don't want to loose the magic or anticipation of the season.
Do your remember when you were a child and would watch the toy commercials, or go to the stores and see the Christmas displays?
Well I don't want to lose that. I love to see what everyone else is making and how they are decorating, but I don't want to see it in our home until it is closer to the day.
Does that make sense?
But I did put up some of the outside decorations as the weather was really nice today.
When I usually put it out, it is freezing cold, and I am almost in tears from my fingers being so cold from wrapping the garland around the hooks. The older I get the more my hands can't function in the cold.
But before I put the decor out, I had to tweak it a bit. I added some more colour to my pine garland by adding some Christmas balls to it. I also put together a simple, inexpensive wreath. I will share these on December 1st ;)
I hope you all had a Creative Saturday :)
