Surviving Saturday . . .

Saturday, December 18, 2010

Good Day Sparkfam!! What a wonderful Saturday I had & still having. Well its still cold but warmer than it has been. So that means getting doing shopping & preparing for the holiday. So I bought 2 cute little bottles of wine for my bosses. One had a label of Mad Housewife & the other was a nice Pinot Noir. I buy wines for their label's but I prefer a semi-sweet wine like peach & blackberry every now & again but small amounts make me loopy. Anyho, here in Chicago the malls are open until almost 1am so we are about step out into the night and do some shopping. I got up late & went to the bank & grocery stores & I'm glad I got gas last night.

Anyho, are you guys buying gifts for co-workers? Do you buy one for every employee or just the employer? We are having our office party breakfast on Thursday & then we can go home afterwards. So we try to get little gifts like wine, candles, lunch cards for different restaurants, lottery scratch offs & weird ornaments.

I am celebrating this Christmas with my family we are doing a rack of roast lamb. I've never done that before so this should be pretty interesting. We are blessed this year to exchange a few gifts & enjoy each others company. What are you doing Christmas? I am trying to get a few ideas as you can & all comments are welcomed.

God bless & I thank the Lord for His many blessings!

    Happy Monday Loopy! emoticon I love that word...have to use it in my book.

    I hope to visit my cousin who I went shopping with because I haven't had her holiday cooking all year. Although I will be cooking and that's a must. Mostly sugar stuff...I son will eat what he wants and this is what he want. Plus Cooking like this once or twice a year will not hurt. That's what I love about this Season too. I can give him a great meal since he has to work all weekend...double shifts. Today is their Christmas party and I put it in a box with the giftcard and a journal. He didn't want the journal but oh well. I taped it tight so he could not undo it and i put a candy cane on the box. lol I can hear him blessing me in his mind. emoticon

    So I have a few gifts to get and then I am complete. making some bags for some of the football playing little boys. It's coming so quick but I will enjoy this Season all year!!!
    Don't Worry...Be Happy!!!

    Sounds like you had a busy Saturday. I am not buying presents for coworkers this year. I cooked (or rather my husband did) and brought lunch for coworkers/support staff last Friday. Between the food, gas to travel to work and parking;it would have been cheaper to buy gifts!

    For my family, dinner at home and probably cash to the kids for after Christmas shopping and activities.

    We generally go to church as a family and give to the community food drive. I would love serve a meal for the community or visit a hospital or prison.

    Merry Christmas! emoticon

    Hope you finished your Xmas shopping Dee. I can't believe this but I do the same thing with wine! I buy them for what the label says! I gave a friend of mine a bottle of the "Little black dress" and it has a picture of a dress on the bottle! Some names are really funny! I exchange with one or two people and of course the boss! Went to my friends wedding last night and it was nice, and now I am focusing on my holiday with friends and family. Hope you have a great day Dee! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
