bah humbug & all of that crap.

i thought about subbing shit for crap in the title, but figured i should keep things klassy. ha ha ha.


thanksgiving is over. that's a good thing, too, considering i'm already over the leftover turkey & all of the other side dishes that are still sitting in my refrigerator.  by the end of the week, my refrigerator will be cleaned out & december will be in full effect. so, in honor of november's end {and the fact that it's a crummy monday}, how about a little brain dumpage?

  • i still need three people to participate in a children's book swap. please leave me a comment with your email if you want to participate. 
  • there will be no thanksgiving recap on my blog because a) i didn't take any pictures, b) it was uneventful, and c) i just don't want to recap it.
  • our house has been "ho ho ho'd." we put up our tree on saturday. adam put up the outdoor lights yesterday. i need two green pillar candles {hello, walmart!} and some hooks for our stockings & i think our mantle will be complete. {we have stocking holders, but they are heavy & i don't want to use them this year.}
  • i also finished a christmas rag wreath for our front door. i'm not sure if i should add a "merry christmas" bunting. i was thinking it would look great with a big, glittery "c" in the middle. or, it's kind of nice on it's own. what do you think?
  • i'm making three more {i've already made one} rag wreaths for teacher gifts except they'll be smaller than the one pictured above and the colors will not be holiday related. i also made one the same size as the christmas rag wreath, but in purple, as a gift for a family member.
  • speaking of making things, i have a few scarves for sale. i was able to knit over the weekend. i finished three scarves and started working on two more scarves. it seems that i can't just work on one thing at a time. i'm listing more scarves tomorrow, but here's a sneak peek {the color is not as dark as it seems}:
  • the end of the semester is rapidly approaching. in fact, one of my classes ends this week. i'm looking forward to the break. next semester is going to be crazy. crazy, but worth it.
  • family visits are weird. no, it's not weird when my mom & dad visit. we love them to bits & pieces. but, it's weird to visit with family that you haven't seen in a while. and, when i say a while i really mean YEARS. and, that is all i will say about that.
  • i saw a commercial for ntelos wireless & it mentioned something about buying out your current mobile contract if you switch. i don't know if this is a gimmick, but i'm looking for any reason to leave t-mobile.
  • as a result of entering ap's giveaway, i stalked the red envelope site for a little bit this morning. on my wish list? i'll need two of them, but i want need this:

{you can buy me this here}
  • speaking of dogs, remember how i told you that our christmas tree is up? yeah, well, one of the dogs peed on it. now i have to wash our red tree skirt. fabulous.
  • as much as i want to participate in cyber monday sales, i'm not. our budget said no. that's cool.
  • oh, i went shopping on black friday. never again will i go to walmart on black friday. what an experience that was! who knew $2 towels would cause a fight that required a police escort?! and, never mind the comment made in the paper about how a car payment would be late because getting a $199 television was important.
how is your monday going? 
are you ready for hanukkah & christmas?

Hey hon! Is the scarf sneak peek you have listed, a grey?

I still want the purple one, but eager to see what other scarves you put up.

I swear, the dog peeing on the tree is something mine would do!!!

My bride normally puts the first letter of our last name on all her wreaths. But I don't think she did for our Christmas one. I think it just says Merry Christmas and has a Santa on it? I'll have to look when I hang it up...
