My priorities have changed. . .

Work has slowed down a bit and I am so thankful for the little break.

I feel like I have a bit of time to catch my breath.

Anyhow, I was wasting a bit of time perusing next week's black friday ads, going through them store by store just looking for something I just *had* to have.


Seriously, nothing.

In fact, I didn't anything see anything, that anyone I knew just *had* to have.

So, I looked again.

Nope, nothing.

Wait, I take that back.

Jeff's grandma is getting a snuggie for Christmas and Walgreen's happens to have them on sale.

I will buy one of those. (No snickering, she needs one.)

I guess what just surprised me, is that normally I find things, I just *have* to have or would LOVE to have.

I'm just not there, this year.

I've decided that this year, I am focusing on the real reason for the season and not getting caught up in all the material stuff and fluff.

We've also cut way, way back on our Christmas list.

Maddie's list is relatively small, as well.

Maybe it's the current economy?

I dunno, I just want a simple Christmas.

I honestly think I just want a simpler kind of life.

And you know what, that decision feels good.

What about you?

Are you cutting back as well?

Has the current economy changed your views of things?

Fave song Friday. . .

As a woman, I can totally relate to the lyrics of this song.

I think it's a wonderful reminder to all of us ladies, out there!

Happy Friday!

Disconnected. . .

I feel so disconnected from my blog and bloggy buds!

Work has been CUH-RAZY busy, we had 2 very important site visits.

But, we passed them both with flying colors, so YAY!
Plus, I am super stoked that they are over, only 2 more years and we get to do it all over again.
Can't wait?!?! LOL

Anyhow, I know I have lots of catching up to do and can't wait to see what all y'all been up too!

I've missed y'all!

Here's a little sneak peak at what I started doing this past wknd. . .


Ok, off to get reconnected!! :)

I've got connections. . .

with that jolly ol' fellow that lives in the North Pole.

You know, the one travels with eight tiny reindeer on Decemeber 24th?

Well, I have a friend named Heather that is pretty tight with Old Saint Nick and helps to do some of his letter writing.

In fact, if you go here, you can see how to get your very own letter from Santa.

How thrilled would your kidlets be to get a letter from Santa?!?!
I can remember Maddie getting her letter from Santa and she carried it everywhere!

She was so proud of it!

Oh, those were the days!

Please check her blog out though, I know you won't be disappointed!

See I told ya, I had connections! ; )
