I had the sweetest comment from Gayle at Miss Kopy Kat. Ya'll, if you don't follow her, you really want to start. She is the Craftiness Queen! LOVE her tutorials and great ideas. Seriously, check out this wreath, which is what she is featuring right now. Admit it, you all want to go buy a wreath form and some mesh and get this awesome wreath rocking on your door.
I told her I wish she were my neighbor because I'd ask for some one-on-one remedial wreathing making. In case you don't remember it, you can see my wreath #fail here. My crafty talents do not extend to wreaths. So maybe I'm glad Gayle isn't my neighbor, because she'd be really showing my house up and it would make me look like a crappy neighbor.
Anyway - all this to say, she asked me what I ended up doing with my weekend! I had THE BEST weekend, and it wasn't because of anything special, just the time with family.
Saturday I went shopping with my Mom, something we haven't done in ages! At one time, we shopped every weekend, all day long, until we were exhausted. My bff would call just to ask if I were in Belk with Mom, because she pretty much knew that's exactly where we were. So Mom and I actually skipped Belk and went to the outlet mall about 30 minutes from the house. Started on our Christmas shopping for the girls (aka Sweet Nieces). Good times.
Sunday, went to church and headed to Mom & Dad's for lunch with Katie & the girls. AH was super snuggly, which is one of those cherished things because at 11-years-old, she isn't quite as snuggly as she was at one point. She's growing up!!! What the heck do you buy an 11-year-old for Christmas? Any suggestions?
Anyway, Macy was SO HAPPY to have her sister home. She just kept kissing and hugging on her, it was just precious.
Here is big sister waiting patiently for her kiss from little sister
Then little sister attacked, trying to get her arms around AH for a hug, but wasn't quite able to reach like she wanted. So she kept burrowing her face into her big sister's neck, trying to share the love. It was hilarious!
So yeah, there is a lot of text for you. :) Last but DEFINITELY not least, please hug a veteran today. Where would we be without these brave men and women?! I can't imagine! So thankful to them and to their families. Thank you so much.
