Well that 3 day weekend flew by! It also flew by without me taking a nap. I honestly can't remember the last time that happened. I left work a little early Thursday & made a Hob Lob run. Yes, I know, I think I have a problem. I've been to that store entirely too much lately. I also had a really strange experience. I walked up to a register, didn't have to stand in line & the cashier spoke English. WOO HOO!! Seriously, this NEVER happens. When I got home Dean had the big tree up & all the lights were working. It's pre lit but you just never know when something is gonna go wrong.
Friday morning we got up bright & early & went to Sam's. Thanks to my brother Scott, we have a business membership & can get in early before the crowd. Have I mentioned how much I love Sam's?? This trip I found a pair of Bandolino jeans for $15. I didn't think they'd fit because that would be too easy but they do!!! I even picked up a couple of Christmas gifts & some ornaments. Just what I need, more ornaments. Problem maybe?? We made a few other stops & got the majority of our Christmas shopping done which was FAB!! For lunch we met Dean's parents at Mike Anderson's. Speaking of FAB!! LOVE LOVE LOVE Mike Anderson's!! Best seafood ever! Thanks Mrs. Joyce & Mr. Andrew!! Once we got home I started decorating. Oooh I have to interrupt myself. I just got an email that New Kids On The Block are coming to Lafayette in June!!! WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!! I LOVE NKOTB. This is the big tour with the Back Street Boys. I can't wait!!!! Tickets go on sale in a couple of weeks so now I have to find a connection to get good seats. Anybody know anyone that works at the Cajundome???
Moving on. I got a good bit of work done on my tree Friday night. I made a confession Friday night. As I mentioned earlier I think I have a problem. A Christmas problem. I have A LOT of Christmas stuff & ornaments. I think it's time I cut myself off. I hate to do it but it's gotten bad. Here's a sneak peek of a portion of my "stuff".
On the bird front. One of my friends, Mrs. Carolyn suggested I get some fake rubber snakes to put on top of the places where the birds hang out. Well, I've been looking & all I can find are rubber snakes that are fluorescent colors. I'm thinking the birds will even know they're not real. SO, if anyone knows where to get regular looking rubber snakes I'm all ears.
Speaking of the birds. I know. Really, I am going to stop talking about them BUT all this started because they poop on everything. Well, guess what Dean found on the patio by the pool Thursday??? RABBIT POOP!!! Now I don't mind a cute little rabbit hanging out & lounging by the pool but couldn't it do it's bunny business in the grass???
