Post-It Note Tuesday


Our Thanksgiving guest brought over a HUGE box for us. It was FILLED with boxes and boxes and boxes of Godiva chocolates and cookies. Wow. So spoiled and so excited, lol! I might even share!!!

Thomas and Bella over the weekend! Bella was like, "Take a picture of us!" So I did!

I made up 27 stockings!! These either hold mini boxes of crayons or pencils. This one isn't shown fully decorated, but I was so excited with it, I had to take a photo right away, lol!! They turned out really cute, I think!

By Sunday night, I finally cooked again! Thomas had been "cooking" for us since our Thanksgiving meal. (yum!). By Sunday, I felt sufficiently guilty enough to make this Turkey Cranberry Wreath! Doesn't look very pretty but it was realllly good! It's a Pampered Chef recipe.

This morning I'm back to my ole crock pot ways!! Beef roast with fresh potatoes, onions and garlic! Smells divine!!! But...

...I washed too many potatoes for it! So...I diced 'em up, added olive oil and seasonings and roasted them in the oven for my breakfast!!! Hearty breakfast for a busy (piggy!) housewife and crafter, lol!!!!

Walking Dead!!! I guess I'll have to fill my Sundays with watching Christmas movies. Lori kind of annoyed me, too.

I'm living off my crockpot right now because my oven broke...Please feel free to share recipes. ;)

I had a hard time getting past those boxes of chocolate!
That Bella is a Daddy's girl, huh? So cute!

I definitely "get it". Getting a good night's sleep occasionally is absolutely amazing! Yea you!

Congrats on your promotiono! I just keep placing my orders to hold my place as a demonstrator. Placed one yesterday to meet this quarterly quota. Now I can't wait to get it! It is alway so exciting.

What did the world ever do without crock pots? Just wondering.....

Great pic of Bella and Thomas.

I have MISSED you...and please forgive for me not having visited lately. Dang old age thingy is visiting with me and slowing me down a bit..just a bit HEHE!!

Love all the post it notes and any advice you can give on sleeping all night will be greatly appreciated. Just sayin!!

Any chance we can get the recipe for the turkey ring...that looks delicious!!

SO excited that you are getting closer to seeing your babygirl (who I know is not a baby but she is your baby..always)

I get it, too. I haven't had a good night's sleep in a very, very long time.

I hope Bella has fun at the spelling bee tomorrow. Good luck to her and the rest of the kids.

I've never enjoyed cooking. It's a chore that has to be done in order to survive. Sometimes I envy people who enjoy cooking as much as they do. Your creations look scrumptious.

Congrats on having one of your friends join your SU team. Promotions are always nice to receive. :)

I just watched "The Grinch" on ABC. Love that show. Watch it every time I see it on TV. :)

Hey! You should have given a Walking Dead spoiler alert! Some of us have to wait until it comes out on DVD.

I'm sure you probably already have plenty for the craft fair. :)

Chocolates--Oooooh! I don't eat meat, but those roasted potatoes sound yummy!

Glad you slept well!! :) :)
