A few little ditties that I have discovered recently, great gifts and little sussies for friends, family and your wild indian/indians. For you slackers that are still Christmas shopping. Don't get offended, I am in that category as well.
And that category of slackers...rocks!!!!
On Sunday we went to the Cracker Barrel to have breakfast. Most of y'all know what a Cracker Barrel is, if you live near one, GO. GO NOW!
I bought a ton of cute, fun, vintage candies and toys to stuff the kids stockings with. Moon Pies and candy dots on paper. Candy sticks in a tons of flavors. A whoopie cushion and some silly glasses. Fake moustaches and lips. Big League Chew. Sugar Babies. You get the picture.
As I am typing this I just just remembered the dentist asking me if Bram ate crap.
It's Christmas!!! The 8 lb. 6 oz. newborn Baby Jesus would totally be OK with it.
Seriously, very old school stuff for the stuffing of the stockings. (say that 50 times.)
On another Christmas note, the three gifts per kid idea I am doing this Christmas and indefinitely. SUCH A GREAT IDEA! I know that the goodies Santa is bringing the two hellions are gifts that they will actually use for more than a day. I highly recommend starting this Coco tradition. And I would like for it to be called your "Coco tradition" in your homes if you chose to start this next year.
Thanks for that. Boosts my self esteem a bit.
Erin Condren designs has the most colorful and fun daytimers. I just ordered my 2010 planner. Last year was the first year that I ordered from Erin Condren and I am hooked! I know, I know, I know.. I have a Blackberry. But Coco needs her calendar in front of her while on the computer or the phone. And having a tiny case of OCD, I need need to X out every day after it passes. Weird? Maybe. Does it work for me? Yep. Check out the website, she designs the most creative paper products.
If you need to direct Santa Claus to a website that perhaps may have some toys and games that he could swing by and pick up en route to your chimney, go to Back to Basics Toys.
This will be the third year that I have sent Santa to this website. And I am never disappointed. In fact, both Tessie Mayes and Bramalamadindong are getting all of there Santa gifts from this website. I sent Santa a letter telling him about Back to Basics. He wrote back, thanking me for making it a bit easier for him this holiday season.
I do what I can, Santa. I do what I can. Y'all know how nice I am. And pretty.
One last idea for gift giving is starting the wine glass collection for a friend or close family member. Not to pat myself on the back or anything.....buuuuutttttt.....let's just say that a lot of girlies in my neck of the woods are now doing the fun, different, colorful, unique wine glass collections in their homes as well. And we can than Hubby's Gaga for the start of this trend.
People love it. (though you may have to explain why you are giving just one random wineglass as a gift.)
So that is it for today, class. Now get to LAST MINUTE shopping!!!!
I thought I would throw out my suggestions for the holiday season. Two weeks away!! I don't want it to end!
ta-ta for now
*on a totally different subject, if a friend or family member suggests you go on a random documentary to talk about your drinking problem. and your "final interview" is in a hotel room. you are not filming a documentary. you are on a show called, "Intervention" and you will shortly be on an airplane to California or perhaps Arizona. you will be there for 90 days and will be kicked out for drinking in said rehab. just thought I would let you in on that tip.
* on another subject, i don't know how to spell the following: turqouise, definetely, disapointed.
* until just now, when i hit spellcheck and apparantley spelled those three words correctly. for the first time in 10 years.
