The Day After…

OMG…I am still full.  Last night was so great and I ate some of the most delicious food ever.  Now I have the last three days of my week off and am trying to be productive.

Here are some pics…

The Chefs

The plethora of sides to choose from…

The turkey..

My overstuffed plate..I wanted a taste of everything..

I got to hang out with some of my favorite peeps…all in all a great day.

Today…Black Friday

I am in search for the matching lamp so I have a pair of these..

Helen found this one for me at Home Goods for $39.99!  Can you believe that?  I want this other lamp so badly, I am venturing out today of all days to search for it.  Wish me luck!

Now I have the last three days of my week off and am trying to be productive.  My shows start again next week and I have been sitting on my couch making jewels for days, hoping to make enough to get me through the next few shows so I don’t have to be up till all hours the night before each show.

Off to HG!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, I have been counting the days until today.  Since my parents have moved away, I am lucky enough to have received many invitations to different friends’ dinners.  I will be celebrating with Meg and her family.  I have watched her cooking and baking for days so it will be a truly gourmet dinner, my mouth is watering.

My life has taken some crazy turns in the last two months.  Earlier this week, I had my (hopefully) last surgery and have been recuperating at home.  I have used the time to get organized and clean out some piles of papers.  It feels so great to throw things away-which is very difficult for me to do.  Also trying to stock up on jewels since I have my next round of shows starting next week.  I have had to rely on friends for errands and smoothies and am very thankful for how generous they are with their time. I feel very lucky to have such great friends.

I am hoping for a fresh start in December.  I have lots of new things in the works and lots of plans to make.  This blog has been neglected but that is about to change…

Feeling thankful,
xoxo kp
