Wonderful day!!!

Awwwww, today was wonderful. I think it was probably one of my most favorite Thanksgivings that I can remember. The food was soooooo yummy!!! There was so much of it. I tried to eat a little bit of all of it, wishing all the while, that I could have a whole lot of all of it. My tummy just would not let me have that much. I really did try though. The cake turned out wonderful. Two thumbs up!!! The Brownie truffle was sinfully good. There was several kinds of sweet salads and I really could not tell you which was my favorite. I did try them all. The Sweet Potato Bake should have been on the dessert table. UMMM!!! UMMM!!! The best part, was I got my Moms secret ingredients for the Cornbread dressing. Something has been missing for several years from my dressing and today, I got the missing ingredients. Well at least I think I got them all. One may never know for sure, but I do plan to make some and see.

We had 13 of us. My family and my friends family. We were just like one big happy family. We all fit together like peas and carrots. The only thing I wished, was that we could have spent more time together. Sometimes you just hate to see the day come to a close and everyone leave. As the saying goes "All good things must come to a end" Who made up that saying anyways!!! Stupid saying!!!

After all was said and done, my friend and I decided we needed to meet at Michael's and take part in the early sales. They had their Cricut cartridges on sale for 29.99, and so I got me one. Yes only one. I had most of the ones they had on sale, but I did manage to find one that I did not have and have been wanting. I bought the New Arrival Baby cartridge. It is so darn cute. I cannot wait to play now. I have somewhere bookmarked a very cute little book made from that cartridge. I will be searching my favorites in the next week. I also bought a Ott Light. They had them on sale, plus I was able to use my 20% off and so that made me pay around 15.00. It is soooo tiny and cute. But don't let tiny fool you. It puts out big bright light for such a little lamp. I am very excited about having it. You know its really the little things that make us the happiest. Well for me anyway.

Tomorrow, more sales. I will be shopping the day away. I will be going with my friend, so I will let her navigate. If you want to go where the deals are, than you want to go with her. She knows how to shop!!!

I really do hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day, and you are now sitting around fat and happy!! Dear Lord if you cannot make me skinny, would you please make my friends fat!!! Now that is a great saying!!! (wink,wink)
