Yep, just randomness ... that's all you're getting.
Mostly, I just wanted to let ya'll know I'm still alive and kickin'.  
These last five days have been BUSY.  
We hosted Thanksgiving dinner, so that pretty much explains what I was doing from Wednesday night through Thursday night.  
Cooking.  Cleaning.  Dishes.  Cooking.  Cleaning.  Dishes.  
You know, something like that...

And then "Black Friday", my mom and I always go shopping .... and no, we did NOT go anywhere at midnight -- or worse yet, 9:00 p.m. Thursday night!  (Sheesh!  What is wrong with people, anyway!?  Can't we all just enjoy THANKSGIVING first -- and let everyone else do the same -- before expecting people to be at work with the psychotic pepper-spraying, swear-word ranting lunatics!?)
My mom and I greatly enjoy getting a good night's sleep, getting up early, and arriving at the stores AFTER the crowds.  No lines.  No lack of parking spaces or shopping carts.  No crazy lunatics.  (Well, maybe one or two - haha!)
And the best part is ... we got most of our shopping DONE!  Woohoo!

To wrap up the weekend, the hubs and I got to go on a date to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra!
Have you been to their concert???  Do you know their music???  (Well, I bet you do, even if you don't know you do!)
Here's just a little clip of what their concert is like.  
See?  Told ya'.
And if that wasn't awesome enough, we also got to go to The Melting Pot!
Fondue and I are BFFs.
Bec is to fondue as peanut butter is to jelly.  
I was one hap-hap-happy camper! :-)

And now .... here it is, Monday night, I haven't blogged in days, I've got nuttin' to show you, and I am once again feeling behind the blogging holiday curve.
I'm lucky I've got my pumpkins and corn stalks put away.  (Barely, I might add.)
But new creations made for Christmas?  Halls decked?  Tree up?
Nope.  Not this girl.
One of these days, I'll get with the program.

OK, no I won't.
But hopefully you're OK with that.
And now ... back to working on my advent project -- gotta get it done before Thursday!  


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
