roses and thorns


* It's FRIDAY!!

* Christmas is a week away!

* I only have to work ONE day next week!

* I had a very productive day off yesterday, went to the gym, got a haircut and I am now almost done with my Christmas shopping. Billy happened to have the day off as well ;)

* The fam came over for din last night and I made homemade potato soup, it was delicious!

* I have a meeting at work today, the title of the meeting is "GOOD NEWS". I'm excited for that meeting!!

* My work holiday party is today from 1:00-4:00, drinks and apps with the law firm at a restaurant in our building.

* I'll be baking tomorrow with one of my good friends that I haven't seen in a while.

* I can't wait for next week, Billy and I have so many fun things planned!!


* I have a boss who is impossible to shop for, has everything that he could possibly want and I have NO IDEA what to get him for Christmas. He loves fishing and hunting. Any ideas?!?

* My Pops could still use your prayers, he has been laid off for a year now. He is beyond ready to be working again!

Life really is pretty great right now!!
I LOVE this time of the year!
Happy Holidays my sweet friends!
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!

If he loves fishing and hunting what about a giftcard to Bass Pro or Cabelas? Those are places my husband loves to shop. Have a great weekend!

Marian said...

Christmas is so close I can taste it!!! I leave for home today so Christmas has come early for me:)

Saying prayers for your Pops. Hoping the job market will start looking up in 2010 (I've had a few friends who haven't been able to find anything either)

I made a homemade potato soup a few weeks ago and it was really good. Reminded me of O'Charley's!

Adorably Distracted... said...

sayings tons of prayers! i hope he finds one soon! if you could say a few for mine as well that would be great! he isn't laid off but business is not good. Wish I was coming to your party with you! I could use like 7 drinks right now!

Aishlea and Brandon said...

Have fun at your party!!!

Could you get your boss a gift card to Bass Pro Shops or Cabela or one of those hunting places???

Have a great weekend!

Whitney said...

This is a fun post! I would love that meeting, too! I don't think I've ever been to one like that! Ha!

Gwen said...

Totally praying for your Dad!!!

And...I get my bosses alcohol. One drinks Jack Daniels and the other Red Label. They are easy. But I agree with Aishlea...Bass Pro or Cabella's would be great. Even Dicks would work.

Have fun at your party and enjoy your weekend!!! XOXO

Totally praying for your Dad. My family is going through a very similar situation right now. Boo.

Blair said...

Ahh, I love this post!

I had the same problem with my boss. He loves fishing and hutning as well so I got him a gift card to Charleston Angler, it's a fishing supply store and HE LOVED IT!!! Do you have a Bass Pro near you, a gc there would be great.
I am so stoked that Christmas is almost here, I am ready for a much needed BREAK!!!
Praying for your dad! I know first hand how hard it is, my husband was laid off in August and has yet to find a job. It's very stressful but I work hard and pray harder that's what gets me through!
Have a great weekend!
xoxo,
Blair
