I am ready for the holidays now! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is so close, but I’m happy about it. Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday – I’m ready for lots of cooking, eating, napping, and shopping :)
Today after church, Nick and I had to run a few errands, and we actually got some Christmas presents for family! We’re being very creative this year with gifts – most of our family is either cutting out store-bought presents completely or really scaling down so we can save up money to go to Jovenes/Honduras this coming summer and/or send money to the orphanage. I mean, in the grand scheme of things, we don’t need anything. Sure there are things we would like to have, but there are better things we can do with that money.
Anyway, Nick and I found some good deals today on things we wanted to do for gifts, so I’m excited. We still have a lot of work to do, but it’ll be fun making presents together.
After shopping for a bit, we stopped into Panera for lunch.
Meh? I always have high hopes for Panera, but sometimes they totally let me down.
I got the pick 2 deal, which is good, but half of my salad was soggy greens and there was barely any hummus on my veggie sandwich.
I love their whole grain bread and the hummus was good, but I would have liked about an inch more :)
We went by a few more stores after eating to check prices and ended up back where we started. Michael’s has good deals when things are 40% off.
We just got back home, so I’ve got more laundry going and am going to vacuum downstairs this afternoon. Nick’s outside finishing the paint on the dresser – I think I’ll wait to vacuum upstairs until tomorrow when the dresser is back inside. It’ll just be too hard to get to things with my drawers all over the bedroom right now.
I just sliced up my panera apple and am having that with some nutella – yum.
Dinner will either be a new adventure or leftovers – not sure yet! We’re waiting to see how Nick is doing with the dresser around 6.
It’ll be tasty either way!
