IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LITTLE BIT LIKE CHRISTMAS

Phil and I were in Target the other day and guess what? It's beginning to look like Christmas. I see you holding your head in your hands. I nearly danced down the isle. I got so involved looking at all the finery that Phil lost me.
Now a question: Why does that dear man even have a phone if he's going to leave it in the car? Cell phones major purpose is to find the spouse at Costco and Target. And to call someone while they are driving. And to call the wrong person OR send text messages to the wrong person. Repeatedly. Like someone kept doing to me last week. (Bless his annoying little heart.)
I bought Christmas dishes for one of my daughter-in-laws for Christmas one year. Several years later I found more of them on ebay at only about four time the cost of buying them the first time. I won the bid and she was surprised. It was a good gift. I was a hero. I'm not a hero often so I particularly like this memory.

I wonder if anyone wants Christmas dishes for Christmas this year.

This is this year's patterns.
They only had a few of these so if you want some go get them soon.
All this Christmas stuff brought me... PS Maybe Jason and Elizabeth will surprise me tomorrow and exchange my regular dishes for the Christmas ones.

It's okay to serve Thanksgiving dinner on Christmas dishes, isn't it? Well, isn't it?

Please say yes.

Yes, I think you should eat Thanksgiving dinner on Christmas plates. You are thankful for Christmas, right? There you go. Plus also, I love that Target store. They have the loveliest things I ever met. In fact, people have been known to go to my house and when I wasn't there, they went looking for me at Target. And found me. The end.

I'm not opposed to Christmas already. I think before Halloween is pushing it, and I have seen Christmas commercials in October. However, with the warm weather it doesn't feel holidayish. Not that I'm complaning because I HATE the cold and snow. I think it should maybe snow really good a couple days before Christmas and it can continue to do so until New Year's. After that, I'm done. The end!

Maybe your daughter-in-law was selling her plates and you bought them back for her at four times the cost so she keeps hers plates and has some money to buy you a Christmas gift.

I am starting to feel excited for Christmas esspecially if I can actually achieve my goal of being prepared a head of time.

I would love to dance around Target with you----amongst the Christmas finery---I love it!!

I'm afraid I better stay away from Target or I may have to have 3 sets of Christmas dishes instead of 2! How did we ever get along without cell phones? About the only time I ever use it is to find my husband in Costco.

Oh Oh pick me, pick me, I love those Christmas dishes, and as you know, I don't have any. Alls I have is Grandpa's old corelle dishes (which I love) and some fishy ones (which I don't love but the person who gave them to me doesn't read your blog) and my Ivy ones from you (which I love TOO)and they are all shabby. So I believe, when I come over today we should wander over to Target, I'm pretty sure we'll see Little Jessica there. :)
