Happy Sunday + Race to “Runaway Bride” Giveaway #2 winner

Happy Sunday, everyone!  And Happy Holidays!  Can you believe Christmas is only three days away? :rasssp

I hope you’ve got all your shopping & baking & decorating & everything else done.  Otherwise you might be in a wee bit of trouble…which is usually where I’m standing this time every year. :rudolph

But this year, I AM HAPPY to have just about everything crossed off my list.  I got Madame Mommy Dearest a super-awesome present (which I’m dying to give her; waiting until Christmas morning is killing me! :dancingtree ) & then managed to get her a smaller something to go with the super-awesome gift…something I wanted to be a part of the first present, but didn’t think I’d find for a decent price anytime soon.  So yay for me! :winkcookie

I AM HAPPY that I’ll be racking up some seriously World’s Greatest Daughter points with the aforementioned super-awesome prezzie.  Especially since MMD has informed me she “didn’t get me much” this year & I’ll probably have a “disappointing Christmas.” :whaaat   I’m oddly okay with it, however, because A.) I’m usually totally stressed about Christmas shopping & wracking my brain for a decent gift for her, & not feeling like that this year is a huge relief.  And B.)  she really did buy me a buttload of Kitty Girl perfume & Coca-Cola/Pepsi lip balms for my birthday, so I can totally revisit those & pretend I got some of them for Christmas.

Last but not least, I AM HAPPY that we got some rain & warm weather that completely melted the two or three feet of snow we’d gotten.  No shoveling necessary—yippee! :snowmanhead

How about you?  What has you happy dancing this week?

    :dancingsanta Yay for a good MMD prezzie! I’m struggling this year with gifts. I started out in the mood and then the last week (ish) has been not so good (deaths, illness, work/nasty people I have to deal with at work-but not part of the company I work for). I really didn’t have the blues until then. BUT…I’m not going to let it bring me any further down. My kids are all home and healthy (lots of nasty bugs going around). Husband and I went out for a nice lunch today (Hooters-don’t judge, I like the wings there and Orange Sangria drink they have). I get a nice lunch/dinner on Tuesday and it’s gonna be spring in 88 days.
