It has been a COLD dreary Saturday today but I managed to be pretty productive. (Considering I started Christmas shopping yesterday and finished today! yikes)
I got up and got ready this morning and went to Wal-Mart where I proceeded to spend TWO hours and spend more money than I ever have at one time. But I got Christmas gifts, food for Christmas dinner, food to make meals to freeze and for another family, and all the other necessities we needed. I had to walk slow around the store and it was very crowded so it just took me forever.
I got this cute bag in the mail yesterday (along with some other goodies) from two bloggers, Taylor and Joyce (mother and daughter) who I actually met at my friend Hillary's wedding. I love it - I'm going to pack all of Harper's stuff for the hospital in it tomorrow!!!
While I was out shopping, I went to one of my favorite stores in town and my neighbor works there. She surprised me with a gift while I was there. She said she meant to bring it over but just hadn't so since I showed up - she just gave it to me there! I love those soft minky blankets and I love that it's monogrammed!
After I finished shopping - I stopped by the hospital to visit one of my friends whose little boy is there with RSV and pneumonia. When I walked in - I ran into an old friend and I asked him what he was doing. Apparently he helps film the show "17 and counting" about the Duggar family for TLC. He was there because the Duggars had their 18th child this week and he was filming them going home. It will be on the episode Monday night. I Soooooooooooooooooooooooo wanted to hang around and try to get in the background and catch my 10 minutes of fame but I was just too embarrassed. But my friend Kacy called me later because she had gone to visit our friend probably 20 minutes after me (not knowing I had been there) and she ran into the whole family and the film crew coming off the elevator! Such fun!
(oh and if you are wondering - I didn't take this picture - got it off the internet. ha!)
I was excited because my friend Rebekah who has moved to Waco, TX called today and was going to be in town and wanted to come by and see me. She is due in March and they aren't finding out what they are having. I can't wait to find out what it is!
I just can't believe Christmas is in 5 days. It has just slipped up on me. Are ya'll ready????
I've already gotten my Christmas blessing - just found out we now have TWELVE pregnant girls in 6 weeks on the prayer blog! TWELVE! God is good!
