Well, now that would be easy..........Candyland about a month ago with one or both of the Grans, I can't remember. I do know that neither of them have really grasped what losing is all about and it's just so cute to watch them when they have to move backwards. They do know that isn't the direction they need to be going to win and thus, it is most unsettling for them.
No, can't remember when the last time was that I worked a puzzle.
2. What is one place you were thankful for this year?
I have thought about how thankful I have been to call this house "home" the past 33 years. As we prepare to move from this house into our new house my heart is filled with all kinds of emotions. This is the house our children were raised in, the house where many, many family affairs have taken place and where Hubby has sweat blood and tears to keep the outside "picture perfect." As I look forward to our new house, I'll always have cherished memories of this house and I look forward to the memories we will begin making in our new house.
3. Take a nap, watch football, go for an after dinner walk, or hit the stores...which ONE is on your must-do list for Thanksgiving day? For those of you playing along who aren't in the US, answer as it relates to any big holiday meal.
Well, none of these. We will have our meal at noon and then around mid-afternoon we have friends, that we haven't seen in a couple of years, stopping by to enjoy some dessert with us and take out to see our new house. The Princess will stay with us while her parents hit the stores later that day.
4. Besides Thanksgiving, what's your favorite home cooked meal?
I'm not sure if you are talking about the food or a particular holiday. But, a meal would be grilled pork tenders, patio beans, potato casserole and congealed salad. That is like the "standard meal" around here. My family loves it and I figure that's a win win situation for me and for them. I'm quite the pro at grilling pork tenders.
5. What product from an infomercial would you most like to own?
I haven't seen any infomercials in forever but one I remember from way back was the Chia Pet. I would like to watch the grass, or whatever it is that resembles the hair on the pet, grow. I remember the jingle most of all, "Chi, chi, chia." I often see the "As Seen on TV" products at Wal-Mart but I never stop to check them out. I'm out of the loop as to what it popular now.
6. Christmas shopping? Have you begun? Finished? Will you shop on Black Friday? How do you feel about stores opening on Thanksgiving Day? What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done online?
My Christmas shopping is done, boxed and waiting to be wrapped. NO I will not shop on Black Friday, don't know that I ever have. I think all businesses should be closed the entire day on Thanksgiving like they use to be. I hate it for the employees that work in retail but the almighty $$$ rules and stores opening later in the day on Thanksgiving has proven profitable so it will not likely ever be any other way. I would say that 90% of my shopping this year was done via the internet. In past years probably 75%. It's the best thing since sliced bread!
7. What are you most grateful for that adds beauty to your everyday life?
Oh, my goodness, makeup!!! I can probably count on 2 hands the days that I have not worn makeup since I started wearing it. It is just a part of my morning and I am not one who has one bit of color with a naked face. I'm grateful for all makeup but especially blush and lipstick.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
We are all so proud of our Sadie Robertson who won the hearts of so many this season on DWTS. For a young gal that had no dance experience to come in #2 in a competition such as this is quite amazing. She has made us all so proud here in NE Louisiana. And, there is no doubt that her little light shined in a big way into the hearts of Mark, the judges and those who watched. I'm sure it's just the beginning of great things for Sadie!
Blessings to all for a wonderful Thanksgiving!
