Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope all of you who are celebrating have a fabulous day and even better meal. I know I plan on stuffing my face!

Ten things I am thankful for this year:

  • My husband, who is the best ever!
  • My family and few but close friends.
  • My cats; without them life would be much more boring (and way less cute).

  • My house. Though I want to gut almost every room in it and it’s not my style, I still like it because it’s mine. Continue reading »

From what I remember they came in maybe 5 or 6 shades and I had three of them. I still have two and I love them as much now as I did then.
