Have a great time, Snowflake. Are you guys tailgating? When we go to Candlestick to see the 49ers, we tailgate with friends. So much fun. I hope this post goes through. Day before yesterday, I could not post but was taken to the page telling me I had to be a Platinum Member. We have been SO BUSY with the demo. Of course, part of it is that Hubby is so neat and doesn't want to have a big cleanup job and would rather clean up a little as he goes along. Thank God for him!!! We are going to the Elks Lodge for a pit cooked turkey dinner. I can hardly wait!!!

What are your weekend plans?

My parents & Jazzie are heading up today, to hang out with us for the weekend. And tomorrow, Adrian & I, and some friends are going to Lambeau Field for the Packers-Eagles game. Bless my parents hearts, they made the trip to take care of Harlowe for us while we're gone. They adore her, and vice versa, so it all works out! And Jazzie & Har enjoy seeing each other, too.

Our friend, Eric, is coming up today as well. We are going to pick up his brother along the way tomorrow, and then meet my uncle & cousin for a bite to eat before the game. They will be there, too! Should be fun!!
Let's just hope Seneca Warren has been practicing this week!!

We have done some Christmas decorating this week, a little something here & there after work each day. We hung red & white lights on our deck, changed our outdoor bulbs to red & green, put battery operated wreaths around our carriage lights & front door, battery operated pine boughs on our stairway railings (love those, multi-colored or white lights, still or blinking), hung a few xmas signs, and even hung my vintage "believe" stocking. Yay!! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!
Next weekend, I will be decorating the trees. Adi will put them up before he leaves, and I will decorate them & more things around the house. The village is after that! Can't wait!!

Work has been keeping me busy. Lots to learn!! And we've been short-handed with people being sick, and extra shoppers out & about.

I may not be around much for the next couple of days, but I'll be good, just enjoying my time with family & on the road trip. Go Pack, Go!!

Hope you all have a blessed & lovely weekend!!

xx

Four days until the season...
I tried to think of the words that could express how this made me feel....and I knew it right away....

Truly YABBA.

We are going to try & find some other friends who are, and join them if we have time

We are meeting my Uncle Den & cousin Ashley for a beer & brat beforehand, too!

Tailgating is a blast!!

Sorry you were having trouble posting- that's been happening for me much more often, too. I am always happy to help, you can message me if there's anything I can do.

Bless your hubby's heart, being so precise & neat with your demo. Hope all is going well! It's going to be so amazing!!

Enjoy your turkey dinner tonight!!

half way done rearranging my living room so that I can put the tree in the window this year. This is also a great way to clean out all the nooks and crannies in this room!

Lambeau tomorrow?! Sounds exciting! There is no Aaron Rodgers but it should be an exciting game. Hopefully Seneca can lead the charge. A win is much needed. Cheer loudly!! I can't wait to return next month! GO PACK GO!!
