Christmas is soooo close!

...And that is why I've been avoiding the mall and grocery stores!

Ok, so maybe not yesterday. I had to get out of the house for a bit. Cabin fever was starting to set in a little, and I needed some time away from the blaring football game. Not so much into football, but I'll hang out and watch for a while just to spend some time with the hubby. Yesterday I just needed to get out though. So I went to check out this new discount factory store. They have all sorts of name brands that are marked up to 70% off. I can't pass up looking at anything that says 70%, I mean come on!

I found these boots! I was walking by the shoes, (not much for shoe shopping, more of a sweater shopper), and I went over and grabbed them off the shelf before I even looked at the price or size. I'm sure the lady I stepped in front of thought I was incredibly rude, which I was.

They look very similar to some made by Dubarry ($439) that I had been drooling over in a magazine for about a month. I don't care what it is, though, if it costs in the hundreds the idea of spending that much on one thing seems pretty ridiculous to us poor folks. But I could do $30. All leather. Yep, you betcha.

Now to the grocery store...We do need food after all.
I haven't been grocery shopping in over a week. We're down to the months old ice cream cones, and wilting carrots in the fridge. It's time to get out there again!

I'll post my menu for this week a bit later today, so head on over to my kitchen by clicking the link to the right.

The kids in our neighborhood are out of school until January 5th, so Anthony's best friend has been over here a lot. Already. His mom and I are aiming to find lots to keep them busy as they are already complaining of boredom. It doesn't help that it's raining yet again!

I sort of enjoy the rain, as it automatically waters my plants.
And I get to wear cozy sweaters and drink warm drinks.

While the little boy is next door, (must share the wealth of young noisy boys), Annie has been entertaining herself, and I have been practicing calligraphy and turning some pen and water color designs in to cards.
Now I must plan out tomorrow....
