Good afternoon!
So far I went to the bank, post office, pet store, butcher and supermarket. Just as I was leaving the supermarket with a cart full of groceries, there was a downpour. I was soaked by the time I got everything in and out of the car. Not fun. Anyway, I finished putting everything away, dried off and I am now having a hot cup of coffee. The girls are all out and my husband is working so I think I'm going to run up to Hallmark now. I'm a little hesitant because I already spent a lot money today and I know I'm not going to want to come home empty handed. Maybe I will have as much will power as Made had and resist the urge to buy. We'll see.

Good evening, everyone! How are you all doing? Not much going on here. I am sitting here with the family, trying to decide on what to do for dinner.

What is everyone up this evening? How many of you went to Hallmark today? I'm sure many of you did! I couldn't since I worked last night, but I plan on getting up tomorrow, after sleeping a few hours, since I work tonight, then going.

What are you all going to do tomorrow? I after going to Hallmark, I plan on just spending time with my family and just watching Hallmark. I am off tomorrow, so I am going to take advantage off spending time with them.

Well, I am off to figure out what we are going to do for dinner. Talk to you guy later on. God Bless. Enjoy your evening and keep smiling!

Have fun @ Hallmark!! I was one who bought too much but I enjoyed every second of it!!! =]

Hey sugar,
I went to Hallmark & it was awesome as always!! I really love this local store,
It's much bigger than the ones in Vegas, and has more selections. Lots of cute country decor, local gifts too.

Hope work goes well tonight, and that you have fun tomorrow!!
