On Wednesday night, J and I went out for some Thai curry. It is not often that the two of us go out for dinner just for fun. We have found a really good Thai place (PadThai Kitchen) just right down the street from us. I got Spicy Curry Noodles. yum. After Thai, we met up with our friends R and S for coffee at Fido's. We talked about hunting and Christmas crafting. Perfect for everyone involved. Getting to know R and S over the past couple of years has been a real joy. I have a lot of love and respect for both. J and I even held hands under the table. It was an evening I needed and enjoyed.
Last night, I stopped to visit my grandparents. Nana makes the absolute best salads. Always colorful and delicious. Then, Whitney picked me up to go to an ornament swap party. The party was held by the ladies of the church I used to attend. It was nice to catch up with old friends. We snagged these cute ornaments! Mine was actually the one I brought. I stole and people stole from me so in the end I wanted to play it safe and get the one I brought because I knew I liked it. ;)

Last week, I stumbled across a gorgeous yarn wreath at The Little Things We Do. I saw another oh-so-cute wreath that would have matched my bedroom at Kirklands. That got me to thinking... Maybe my dislike for wreathes is like my dislike for eggs. I don't like eggs unless they are made like Nana's/I make them. Maybe I dislike wreathes unless they are simple and unique/I make them. That led me to the decision to make my own.
Yesterday at Hobby Lobby I picked up my supplies. Luckily, they were having a sale!
Skein of yarn
3 pieces of felt
Sprig of berries
Yard of red ribbon
(I also used pearl-head pushpins that I already owned.)
I googled "yarn wreath" and found several tutorials for free. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to make. Most of that time was spent wrapping the yarn around the wreath.
I love the way it turned out!
One step closer to a cozy Christmas...

But if I can't have the perfect whale boots, should I go with something else? These duck boots are fitting and I am sure the kiddos in the car rider lane would love them.
Should I go with something uber classic?
Maybe because I have a little SEC championship on my mind, but I am also leaning towards these...
Even my boots could say "War Eagle!"
Should I keep holding out for my dream pair?
Oh, the possibilities!
It did not go as well as I hoped.
I will be going for a scan next Monday.
Just going to keep busy until then.
Will be glad to see some "China friends" this weekend.
Thankful J was home yesterday to reassure me that all will be well.
Prayers are always appreciated.
