Chit Chat Cheer!

Just thought I would share a lil Christmas Chit Chat with ya'll.

Our tree now has presents to protect till the 25th. Yay!

Do ya'll ever just feel a bit guilty about presents?

I do.

Maybe guilty is not the right word but you know what I mean.

I find myself wondering... why me Lord?

I could so be that Mommy with no presents this year to give.

I am so thankful for every blessing.

His Grace is my favorite gift of all.

My favorite gift to give is my time.

I only wish I could have a few more hours some days....dont you?

I think this year is my first "no fuss" year.

I have really just enjoyed my family and friends.

Making time for the sweet things.

I did make my own tags this year...ha!

I used some mailing labels and my favorite stamps.

Projects frequent here year round so it's kinda nice to take some time off.

Have a clean kitchen counter for once.


My sweet Maddy aka Tree is home from school today with a stuffy nose.

Sure hope she feels better soon.

Her play starts Thursday and runs every evening until Sunday.

The forest just wont be the same without her sweet branches...hehe.

  14. Susie, this company makes the best stuff! I have their bird and nest stickers, but I sure wish I had bought the stamps, too. Your home is lookin' mighty festive and pretty.

  17. First and foremost, let’s get one thing straight: Herve Leger Dresses“There’s an incorrect assumption about Herve that it’s only for evening,”Herve Leger sale Lubov told me up on the 18th floor of her Oktoberfest Costumes Times Square showroom and headquarters. “It can be worn anytime! People also assume that it should fit really tight, but personally I wear it one size bigger because I like the comfort of it while still getting the silhouette.”Herve Leger Replica These are the dresses that are coming into our stores and online now, and these are the dresses that are going to show up come Saturday, because as we pointed out in our runway report last season, an Herve Leger show is full of Herve Leger dresses.
