Two...No, Three Things...

First...ya'll are entering this thing, right?!

if not, get thyself on over to HGTV and do so...you can enter once a day, every day until the first of October, I think...

I probably shouldn't say anything because now I probably won't be the Grand Prize Winner...hah...but I'm makin' a List just in case...

Second...It Is Only 3 Months Until Christmas!!!! Can you stand it?!!!!! shriek shriek shriek...

true, I did cut the Season's Opening Ribbon around here a little early by listening the the Elf soundtrack...in July...I'm not much on Will Ferrell* but Elf is one of those movies...you know...the ones that get Funnier each time you watch them...

but before we know it, Halloween, then Thanksgiving...and then Christmas!!!!...!......

(New Year's Eve/Day is sort of the unloved holiday around here...since we have dogs and since people love to get rowdy, shooting off fireworks and firearms and sech, we tend to stay home & be in bed at our regular time...we may whoop it up by havin' Mexican Take-Out...although, I have to say, I love watchin' the Rose Bowl Parade...and I keep entering HGTV's Rose Bowl Parade contest in hopes of winning tickets out West...)

Third...do not try to put a contact in your eye when you already have a contact in your eye...just sayin'...

Oh...there is a Fourth...but I'm guessin' ya'll knew that, right? LOL...a friend gave me the heads-up yesterday (shhhhh...very hush hush...only many many thousands of people know) that Jan Karon's newest book Home to Holly Springs is due out October 30th...this kind of throws a monkey wrench into my rereading all of the Mitford books beginning on the 1st of October...now I don't know if I would finish them too early...or too late and have to wait to read Home to Holly Springs...

********************************

*like I said, Will Ferrell isn't any one I'd cross the street to say Hi to because, well, we don't know one another, but Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is Absolutely Laugh 'Til You Cry Funny...if a little vulgar...and stupid...in parts...

I am entering the blog cabin sweepstakes so stay away from that one and I won't enter the decorating one. Deal?

see you there! said...

Even tho it took place a number of years ago I remember only too well living through a kitchen remodel. I don't think I want anyone to come fix up anything. I swore I'd let it fall down around my ears before doing anything like that again.

Hope you win! AND that they put you up in a luxury hotel while it happens.

I have to go enter that contest! I was lucky enough to live 20 minutes away from two years ago's HGTV Dream Home in Lake Lure, NC and got to tour it in person. The money for the tour went to charity.

Yes, for sure you need to try red wine and dark chocolate....not so great with milk chocolate. Even if you are not a dark chocolate fan, the red wine makes it great.

Oh ELF, that movie Cracks me up!!! My kids love it. My Fingers are crossed for you that you win tickets out West. The Rose Parade is Amazing... The Floats are the most Beautiful and the Smell of the Flowers are Delicious. The Holidays come faster and faster every year...

Love Elf hated Talladega! Good luck with the contest :) I haven't even given Christmas a thought and don't plan to for a while.

I've been listening to Christmas music off and on since July. I've not pulled any Christmas movies out yet.

Thank you for the heads up about the sweepstakes! AND about Jan Karon's new book. It's been so long since I read the Mitford books I've been thinking about re-reading them anyway - now is a good time! Jacki

it's all about the journey...
