and running on empty. I've been trying to come up with something to say on my blog and I'm just like ... duh, huh, what ... and can't think of a thing. (I think my So. Cal. upbringing is showing with that sentence, huh?!) I think I wore out my middle aged brain with all the Halloween posting. OUCH! So it looks like it's going to be a stream of consciousness post - please forgive me.
I'm so silly - I really want this tablecloth at Pottery Barn Kids! We saw it in the window last weekend and it's so CUTE! No elegant earth tone frou frou table dressing for me - I want turkeys in boats, arriving in the new world. Tune in later to see, will she or won't she succumb to the unbearable cuteness of it! The strange thing is that at the actual store, they have turkey placemats but they don't have them online ... usually it's vice versa, more stuff online than at the store. What gives PBK?! Where you hiding those place mats from me??? Perhaps a subtle message from them that I need to grow up and put aside turkeys in tall ships ...
It's pretty comical since we won't be home for Thanksgiving dinner. Ay yi yi. Well let me amend that, we are vegetarian and we always have our own Thanksgiving dinner the day before at home. Then on Thanksgiving, we go out to dinner with my family and some family friends for dinner. We've been going out since my mother passed away - no one else wants to cook.
Well, I would cook but I dare say anyone would jump for joy over Tofurky other than hubs and I. So we go out.
And I always like to bring a little giftie for everyone who comes. Some chocolates or home made cookies or one time I got everyone pumpkin tea and apple truffles. yummers! And I like to package everything creatively - I like the presentation to be as fun as the gift. I need to get off of my computer glued rear end and figure out what I will bring this year and how I will foo foo it up!
