Guess what, my real estate agent just called and said she has a contract in hand and is waiting on another. She didn't tell us any details over the phone because she said she wanted time to review it, before she sat down with us. Hopefully, it's good news and not a low ball offer; fingers crossed!

Tonight, we are having a birthday party for Victoria (her birthday is tomorrow), she is having about 15 of her friends coming over so we are going to run out and pick up her birthday cake and order allot of pizzas for tonight...That's allot of hungry teenagers to feed, lol...

i hope you all have a wonderful day today~
Have fun tonight, and an early Happy Birthday to Victoria!!!

That's so cute! I love how excited the cats get every year when we start decorating!

We ended up buying a new car yesterday! I'm very happy with our purchase. We love it and we're able to take it with us today. This car had a lot more room then our old one did and it has a lot more features, so overall, there is so much more to love.

Well, I am off to read more of the posts from today. I know I won't get caught up, but I will tomorrow. See you guys for coffee in the am! I will check here before bed. Enjoy the rest of your evening.
Congratulations on the new car!

I drove another three miles that way and coasted it into the shop without hitting any traffic lights along the way (someone was looking out for me)!

The mechanic said that they had to replace the entire brake line from the master cylinder to the rear of the truck (rotted), replace both wheel cylinders and the rear brake hoses. After everything was said and done, it cost me around $450.00 dollars. I don't know, I guess that was ok with labor and all, at least I got the truck back and I have brakes now!

I guess tonight may be a movie night tonight for me and vicki, since the wife and son are working tonight....
So glad you got the vehicle fixed, with being safe.

That's what we ended up getting. I really like the way it drives. That car does so much!

Good evening!
It's been a long day, lots of chores and errands to run. I'm happy to finally sit down and rest for a little while. I did have time to stop at the gift store that I wanted to. It's such a cute little place to visit. It was kind of hard to get good pictures, the rooms are so tiny. But I took a few.

I treated myself to two ornaments. Kind of old fashioned looking but I like that. Sorry about the glare on the glass of the first one.

The pictures don't do it justice. It's lovely all year round but when they change over to all Christmas merchandise its extra special. You would love it!
