long weekend of.....

well I shopped while the rest of the family went to Arkansas and did this

my duck hunting family!
They left me all alone (yeah) for 1/2 day Friday and 1/2 day on Saturday. I wrapped all my presents I have bought and ordered my Christmas cards online and picked them up and got the tree up but it's not finished yet, they were suppose to put the ornaments on but I have yet to see any.
Back to the grind of school and work tomorrow. YUCK!

Happy Thanksgiving

We spent this Thanksgiving here at home with us and John' Mom. John deep fried the turkey, I cooked mom's dressing, green beans, fresh corn and rolls and for desert we had key lime pie.
I am most grateful for my family, my home, my parents, having a job and our health. I ran across this quote the other day and I want to share it with you.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Hope each and everyone had a safe and thankful holiday today.
Now, I'am off to check out the sale ads and get my game plan on for hitting the stores at the wee hours of the morning!

Black Friday

Ok all my shopper friends- THE BLACK FRIDAY ads are posting daily on the website. Start making your list and start looking for the bargins the day after Thanksgiving. I can't believe that some of these stores will be opening at 4 am. I can assure you I will not be one standing in the cold in line at some store parking lot waiting for them to open at 4 AM
I might get up for a (maybe 6 maybe not- more like 7 am openings)

The georgia bulldogs mascot died today suddenly at the age of 4. He died from a heart condition. Georgia fans are sadly going to miss this beloved mascot at the home game this Saturday against Kentucky. UGA - you will be missed!

movies ....movies

this is the big weekend for us "twilight" freaks! yes , I am one of them.

I will not be attending the midnight showing tomorrow night! no, I can wait till the weekend to see it. I hope its as good as I want it to be.
Also Katie and I will be going to see this new movie that opens up Friday too.

This movie is a true story about a Memphis couple who takes in this homeless boy and
and he plays football at Ole Miss and goes on to play professional football. Sandra Bullock and Tim Mcgraw star as this couple. did I mention Tim Mcgraw- oh yes that in its self is worth going to see- ha ha

this is a picture of the real couple the movie was based on. It took place here in Memphis but the filming of the movie was done in Georgia.
So if your plans call for movies this weekend - here are two good flicks to check out.

It has been such a beautiful week, cool crisp air, sweaters and leaves falling. Here is a shot that Katie and I took while we were out doing some Christmas shopping this weekend in Collierville.

Speaking of Christmas shopping- I am very close to being finished ! Woot Woot!!
I need to get my Christmas cards picked out and get started on them this week. I was determined to get all this done early this year.

volleyball tryouts

were held last Saturday for competitive. Katie decided to try out for Delta force and Memphis Juniors (whom she has played for 2 years)
Katie decided to go with Delta Force this year- she made the 15-1 elite team. We are very excited to be in a new club and looking forward to some awesome coaching this year.
