My niece made these and brought them to Thanksgiving dinner at our house - how cute are these??
(I know I just did a "More Thoughts Too Short" post last week, but with all the busy-ness of the holiday and the weekend, I have a lot of tidbits to share.)
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I did. I loved visiting with family and somehow I managed not to totally stress myself out preparing for the meal. Everything turned out fine except I burnt the marshmallows on the sweet potatoes. Whoops.
The day after Thanksgiving we un-decorated from Thanksgiving/fall and decorated for Christmas. It's so tiring to tackle that after just doing Thanksgiving, but on the other hand it's great to have it all done!
A classical music radio station is doing a fund drive and I hate to tell them, but the music they are playing that they think is going to inspire me to donate is actually having the opposite effect.
I recently spent $5 on a "blogging book" written by a gal whose blog I've followed for quite some time. 99% of "How to Make Money Blogging" books are total scams, but I went out on a limb and spent the 5 bucks, and it actually was a great book. In it, she mentions that if you have a blog and want to do a giveaway of her book, just send her an email. I know it's free publicity for her, but it really is a good book that I thought was worth sharing with my fellow bloggers, so about two weeks ago I sent her an email telling her a little about my blog and asking to do a giveaway. Haven't heard back from her. Maybe I'm not "blog worthy", ha ha... Or maybe she's just been really busy. Probably she visited my blog and thought it was the stupidest thing she's ever read and immediately deleted my giveaway request, LOL...
My husband happened to have an issue of Guideposts (a Christian magazine with "true stories of hope and inspiration") he got for free that has Buddy from Cake Boss on the cover, and he thought I'd be interested, so he gave it to me. I read the article, which was really great by the way, and read some of the other stories. I skip the sad ones though. I used to subscribe to Guideposts, but some of the stories are too sad and I couldn't take it anymore, so I canceled it.
I must own 3,000 bookmarks, yet it seems like every time I need a bookmark I end up using a napkin, grocery receipt, pen, etc.
Over the holiday we were playing the Wii - Wii Fit in particular. And somehow by accident while I was on it, it went to the screen where it shows you your weight. There should be like three passwords to enter and five warning screens before that appears on the tv. LIKE I WANTED MY HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER TO SEE MY WEIGHT, NO LESS AFTER I HAD EATEN 25 LBS OF FOOD OVER THE LAST TWO DAYS. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!!! *I* didn't even want to see my weight!!!!!!
How was *your* Thanksgiving? Any funny "food" stories? Did you burn anything? Forget the bags inside the turkey? I remember one year my sister-in-law was bringing this cranberry-jello-salad dish (which is really good!) and it fell over in the back of her van on the way over and she had cranberry sauce all over the floor of her van, I felt so bad! Do you have a tragic Thanksgiving food story?
