Here's the Plan, Stan

Just in case you are curious as to what I will be up to the next few days...

Oy Vey!

Family arrived early this afternoon so we are in for more than I had originally planned. I made one MORE trip to HyVee today to pick up decorating supplies and additional lunch items. Luckily, I have stuff on hand for the extra meals that popped up.

We had a nice night out at Ruby Tuesdays...Michael was very good in the restaurant. I ate a lot- salad bar, burger and fries. But also, I skipped lunch. And by skipping I mean I finished my bowl of oatmeal that had been sitting on the counter since breakfast. Motherhood-it's glamorous. :o)

In other news-the house is clean, baby is happy and momma is showered and even plucked her eyebrows. It's going to be a great Christmas!
