It's Thursday!

A week before Christmas. Holy cow. Time sure did fly since Thanksgiving. I can't wait for the big day though. I can't wait to see if the boys like their stuff. I have also bought things for some needy kids this year, and cleaned out closets to give some clothes away, so I hope I'm teaching them a life lesson here.

Yesterday, I chaperoned Nathan's 2nd grade class on a field trip to the McClung Museum on the UT campus and to the Clarence Brown Theater. Everyone had a blast, including me. :) At the theater, they gave us a behind the scenes tour basically. We saw the prop shop, the underneath area of the stage when they do trap doors and stuff, and then my favorite-the costume shop! They had huge dyeing vats, and then in the sewing room, they had about 4 Beninas, 2 Pfaffs and 2 Juki sergers. Needless to say, I was drooling. HAHA!! I only dream of having good machines like that. My little Kenmore will have to do.

Okay, I'm going to give you 3 things that are random, but I think are gonna make you smile.

1) Mint Truffle Hershey's kisses. If you haven't tried them, hurry to your local Walmart and buy a bag. They are da bomb diggity!!!

2) I am making keyfobs for all my female family/friends for Christmas presents. They look like this:

and you can get the instructions here.
They are SO simple to make.

3) Hmm, I'm gonna have to think on this one. I'll be back later with something for ya. ;)
