The Black Friday shoppers spent hours watching the Macy's Day Parade and studying the sales ads. Remind me to post a picture of them after their shopping spree....lol
My dishes are Platzgraff and these were given to us as a wedding gift from my in-laws. I only use them on special occasions. Our table setting is country simple :).
The time passed much too fast and soon it was time to load 'em up and move 'em out as the DH says. Chem Girl was packed and ready to head out to her college home.
Every year we give her a semester exam box. There is a package to open every day for the Final Exam Countdown.
The little red booklet has a hint of each package to be opened per day. She doesn't have time to read the blog so I'll share a few of the goodies. Just to name a few: a can of make your own snow, erasers (to erase the next 19 days), chocolate (to ease stress), grow your own tree (miniature and of course it's a joke), and a bag of crocheted white 'snow' balls (to grab a friend and have a 'snowball' fight.
We receive a text every evening of thanks for each little prezzie. It's nice to know she has a little highlight every evening.
The final countdown has begun here as well. We have opted for only homemade gifts with the exception of a few inexpensive gifts. The baking/candy making marathon is upon us and the decorating is almost finished.
How is it that we know this day comes every year at the same time and I'm always last minute?
