Please excuse Laurie (aka Decorating Fanatic) for the next few days from Blogland. The poor dear has had many family obligations (i.e. Mother's birthday weekend & 11 year's slumber party) that she will be unable to participate in her regular duties. She promises to keep up with her homework (christmas decorating) with a full report. She will return to her normal self within a few days. Any questions, please call 555-5555. Thank you.
Just a little post to excuse my absence for the next few days. We are having a full weekend celebrating my Mother's 62nd birthday. Yesterday, her and I went shopping in a little beach town about an hours drive and then had dinner with my sister & friend. Just girls roaming the streets, window shopping and burning off our dinner under all the christmas lights. It was lovely! Today we do the family birthday with kids & grandkids.
I've also promised my daughter a mini sleepover (4 little girls besides herself) on Tuesday evening so I've got to gather up the essentials (i.e. chips, soda, icecream & dvd's with Zac Effron in them!) and ship the two brothers off to Grandma's house for the night.
But seeing all the beautiful Christmas decor displayed by fellow bloggers is driving me insane!! I am so ready to start my decorating madness
beginning with this adorable Santa I picked up yesterday in a thrift store for $7!
I am sure everyone one is running around like a turkey with it's head cut off (sorry, couldn't resist!) with last minute details & plans but I do hope everyone has a chance to relax & enjoy their holiday.
