JEWEL TONES FOR FALL

Whew, this has been a busy last few days. Thanksgiving was wonderful but tiring too. I may sleep like Rip Van Winkle Saturday. Then Black Friday hit and that was exhausting too. I spent a huge amount of time doing my shopping for three girls that I "adopted" on the Angel Tree. The ages of ...

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! I didn't stuff the turkey but I did stuff myself. Lol! I still feel like I may "pop" at any time. I told Joe that there were only a couple days out of the year where we actually eat anything and everything so we might as well enjoy ...
