home for the holidays...

Only two days of work this week! I have taken off on Wednesday... goal: get life back in some semblance of order (or start anyway... particularly by filing the large and still growing pile of bills... which also invovles paying my ever forgiving roommate several months of utilities).

This weekend I went to Thanksgiving dinner #1 at the Gardenville Hotel. We were late... the pies were still in the oven at planned blast-off time. We managed to arrive in the middle of dinner (with the green bean casserole, corn relish, and two egg-nog-pumpkin-pies). Dinner was lovely... and then the madness began... Seeing as my sister is the youngest in our generation on both sides of the family, I'm not used to having 30 little cousins running crazy around a reception hall... or anywhere for that matter. Although this is not the first family function I have attended, I still find them most intimidating! I'm starting to be able to recognize some of the kids but names are a whole different issue... with which even their own relatives seem to struggle at times. I played some ping-pong with some kid - name withheld due to lack of knowledge (although I think I heard it while we were playing). I nearly had my head taken off by child weilding pool stick... no idea who that was as I was busy ducking out of the way. The "older kids" stayed after most of the insanity died down and played a few games of pool... Aunt C (don't know who is and isn't ok with their names being used) even played a game or two with us.

Thanksgiving dinner #2A will be at my parents house... and there will be much peace and quiet... well, peace and quiet may be a stretch but there will be much less running around in circles for sure!

Thanksgiving dinner #2B will be at JB's sister's house... with substantially fewer children than aforementioned dinner #1. I will be sitting this one out this year... however, I may have some sort of hand in the mashed potatoes lest Older Girl (sorry, the new code names escaped the brain) be disappointed... we shall see.

Temptation: I have my eye on a chef's outfit for JB... and perhaps a minitature matching one for me. I'm just not sure that he'd actually wear it. I think it would be fun though!

Free Stuff

If you haven't found this yet, it's a great place to try products as well as get free samples of some that you might already love! Walmart posts new free samples frequently. They send you the sample, you don't have to provide an email address and I haven't received any junk mail beyond the samples

ooooh dresses!!!!

So, as I was window shopping for a dress that T might wear... based on her description of herself... I came across one that is on clearance sale and is super awesome!!! I might even have to take a little trip to Ardmore to try it on... of course I could visit the Apple store while I'm there. Perhaps I'll get a dress and a computer :D... ok, maybe not after paying my tuition bill this morning. At any rate, in anticipation of attending a friend's wedding in January (oops, haven't mentioned it to JB yet) I might acquire a new dress. Here's a pic of it on a model... NOTE: model... not me... unfortunately/yet
Ann Taylor, here I come!

Fall-Y'all Giveaway!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Ok, this is my first venture into something other than a regular 'ol 'what's going on' post... if my first try doesn't work, feel free to leave me some bloggy hints.

I love to eat... and cook... and read recipes... ok, straight to the point -
I <3 FOOD.

So, I thought it would be appropriate for me to give away a gift certificate. This giveaway is open to anyone in the U.S. In order for me to pick a restaurant in your area, please provide your zipcode - and your favorite type of food (i.e. indian, italian, etc.) in the comments section of this post. I will select a winner at random on Saturday Nov. 3rd. I will need an email address for the winner; please include one if it's not provided in a name link.
