December Already?

WOW! I cannot believe it's December 3rd already!

Thanksgiving has flown right past us, and now it's time for the hustle and bustle of Christmas.

We had company for Thanksgiving, and the weekend after. One of Mr. Mister's friends (that he has known since Kindergarten) drove from Ohio to visit us. He brought his girlfriend with him, and we had a great time together. Saturday, we took them to see the St. Louis Arch. It was really cold and gloomy, but that didn't stop all of the tourists! There were tons of people there and the line to get inside was LONG!

We also took them to Harrah's Casino. We didn't stay long, because we lost our money really fast! LOL! And of course, since we were spending time in the St. Louis area, we had to eat at Romano's Macaroni Grill! They don't have them in Ohio, so they really enjoyed it.

I have most of the Christmas decorations up. I still need to work on a few things, but I am really enjoying having everything all lit up. I will try to post some pictures soon.

Right now, I am sitting at a desk, in a hotel room, in Texas.

Mr. Mister had to come here for a class, and he invited me to tag along with him. So, here I am! Enjoying the warmer temperatures, while feeling sorry for everyone back home suffering in the cold! LOL!

Now, I just need to figure out what to do with myself while Mr. Mister is in class all day. Although, after the crazy week we just had, I am thoroughly enjoying doing NOTHING at all.

I did buy a new book (The Secret Life of Bees) and some DVDs. So, I can totally "veg" if I want to. I tried looking for a local scrapbook store, but it would appear that the closest one has closed down. Such a BUMMER! I am sure we will find something to keep us busy during our stay here. Maybe, I will talk Mr. Mister into going to see the King Tutankhamun exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art.

That would be SUPER cool! (Hearing about him when I was younger, made me want to be an archaeologist, until I realized that I don't like dirt under my fingernails! ROFL!)

I love to tag along with Gary on business trips (although with Sydney being little still, it's hard sometimes to manage it). I love to wander around and discover new places!

I also can't believe December is here. Christmas is just around the corner!

Have I told you how much I love your banner??? SO pretty!

Okay, I know that I've already commented here, but since you don't have a new post.... I just had to tell you that when your banner came up, I thought to myself, WOW, what a beautiful and close picture of a Cardinal. Then I noticed the crystal berries and realized that it was a fake bird. Could someone please get me some new glasses! LOL!!!!!
