We are on our way out for the day to pick up some last minute things for Thanksgiving, namely the cheese for the cheeseball which is at a store an hour away.
Our family has the best cheeseball recipe ever, dating back to Minnesota 1970- one of my mother's fellow nursing school friends.
Here are some randoms:
If we are Facebook friends, you know that my husband bought my sister Mel and I pink tasers at the gun show yesterday. He showed me how to use it and it is so loud, Finn damn near hit the ceiling and bounced off.
Mel's friend was concerned about Mel with a taser. She said she would start saving for bail for her.
A few people asked why the big one isn't coming for dinner Thursday. He has 2 retail jobs at the mall in St. Louis and has to work at midnight. We did invite him.
There are only going to be 3 of us plus my husband's brother. With my family not being here and my MIL gone, it is going to be a very hard week. I am trying to make the best of it for the little one but last night when he asked how many people were going to be here from Tulsa and I told him none, he was visibly upset. I tried to explain to him how hard it was for everyone to get together this year but he went upstairs to bed.
We had a little scare last week when we tried to book our sister's weekend hotel. Online said there were no rooms at either hotel we wanted but when Mel called, they had one with a king bed. Since I have a king, I know 3 of us can share but I will bring my airbed just in case. We like to get our hotel right in the shopping/historic district so we can drink and not have to drive and when we have lots of shopping bags, we can drop them at the room as needed.
We went to see Breaking Dawn last night. It was maddening because people were talking loudly, crunching their food and bags, and texting throughout the movie. I had to shoot a few dirty looks which worked for the idiot man behind us who was not using his indoor voice. I eventually blocked them all out and got into the movie but I felt like the book was better.
I love these quilted Uggs. They are definitely on my list.
Off we go, have a great week!!
