This morning I made Barefoot Contessa' Challah French Toast for breakfast. Yummy! Had it with fresh blackberries and Starbucks Christmas blend coffee. Nice way to start the weekend. (and hopefully I won't have to cook the rest of the day, ha)
Today I need to go to Archiver's to get some paper for a project. Hopefully I can walk right over to the paper I need, pay, and leave. I always spend too much money there!
I'm pretty much done with Christmas shopping. Just need a few more gift cards and some stocking stuffers. How are you doing on your shopping? We drove around last night to look at Christmas lights and just happened upon a house that was just flashing out of CONTROL. It almost gave you a headache. But.....then we got in front of the house and saw a sign "tune your car radio to 106.7 for the music." It was one of those houses with the lights synchronized to the Christmas music! And it was fabulous!! I'd seen them on You Tube and always thought it would be so fun to watch one. And here we were, sitting in front of one. And no one else was around. I don't know if people know about it or not! We were in an unfamiliar neighborhood so we wrote down the cross streets so we can find it again. :)
If you happen to have the January issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. in your hands, look at page 65. :) Donna's full page advertisements for her Inspired. Artist Workshop have started and they are incredible! So excited to have my name on that page and to be participating in this amazing event.
And in case you don't have your own neighborhood "flashing to the music" Christmas houses, here are a few for you (and your kids!) to enjoy -
(ok, had to laugh that this one starts with an 80's song...ha!)
"Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself..."
~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976
