find me at no biggie today guest posting with a dollar download and thanksgiving snack mix recipe. watch your friends gobble it up this holiday. thank you, kami for letting me crash your blog!
on a tangent.
in spite of my giddiness for pulling out a roll of tiffany blue snowflake wrapping paper this weekend, i am still very much looking forward to thanksgiving and all the festivities, downtime, and eating that goes along with it.
i am not one to say that getting pumped for christmas means i'm doing thanksgiving a disservice. no way. i am feeling in the spirit of things for all the holidays from here on out. even the ones i don't take part in celebrating, i'm just happy about this time of year. there is this bubbling buzz happening, i love it. i even did some wrapping and movie watching. i love wrapping gifts early enough so that even i am a little surprised when they are opened.
saturday i got out and about and crossed a few big things off my list. this is totally not-typically me. there i was, at toys-r-us browsing the aisles, wondering what santa might bring. i avoid that store like the plague all year long but it felt almost merry-like seeing all the shoppers, their loot, and frenzy of coupons clipped together. i saw four women with heaping carts discussing what typical six year olds like and then, after agreeing, loading up on buzz lightyears and cupcake makers. they were obviously donating the toys and it made me smile. i scored the last set of play pots and pans, in red. which also made me smile. even though they are mini sized, they look nicer than the real set in my kitchen.
i also met a blog pal at target. (thank you for saying hello, lauren.) yay for bumping into bloggers in real life! and hip hip for plastic produce in the dollar aisle. i fell back into childhood eyeing the plastic lemons, hot dogs, bunches of purple grapes and tiny boxes of make-believe cereal. i'm seriously excited about filling up his stocking with this stuff!
happy snack-making and holiday prepping.
