Randomly Blue

All of my thoughts today are wrapped up in family, the Thanksgiving holiday and Christmas shopping.  There is an errant thought about business or if I'll have time to vacuum tonight, but otherwise I am in full time holiday mode and the rats are running a million miles an hour in my head.

For the last several days I have been more than a little blue about not going to Tallahassee for Thanksgiving.  I need to stand at my Mom's kitchen window and watch the squirrels play in the yard.  I need to see my Dad in his recliner with his cup of sweet tea.  I need my family in the oddest way that I haven't in a long time and I can't get to them just now.  I am not so happy about that.  I'm just gonna have to deal.

I'm supposed to work for a while tomorrow, but I am thinking I won't.  We're having a little soiree at my house at 3 and I'd rather spend the morning with my girlfriend drinking coffee and watching the kids play than to drive to the office and act like I care for a few hours.  Do you think I can only take a 1/2 day vacation since there's no way I was planning to work any more than that anyway?

Everyone in LA this weekend had on skinny jeans tucked into their boots.  I'm loving that look and desperately want some new boots to wear to Thanksgiving.  Again.  Just gonna have to deal.

Just can't decide if I want to do the Black Friday sales or not.  There are some serious deals to be had, but I feel like I am going to come home with $400 worth of cashmere sweaters for myself because they were such a great deal and still have to shop for gifts.  Sorta defeats the purpose, I think.

Read With Girlfriends is having a giveaway today and it's from me.  I offered some of my garage sale goodies to my friend, Mimi and that just didn't work out.  I was shopping for my Secret Santa and happened upon the cutest, most fun little treat for a Girlfriend who is suffering through this month's book pick.  Click over and comment and you'll be entered to win.  The polish is super, super pretty.  I won't be bummed if you don't win.  It will look good on me!

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving Bloggy Friends.  If you're with your family this week hug them tight.  Even when they drink too much, snore in the recliner after dinner and call your guests the wrong name.  They're yours.  They love you.  You're lucky to have them.  I wish I could hug mine.

Hey! I'm dropping in from Read With Girlfriends! Love your blog and by the way, I wish I could pull off the whole skinny jean thang! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm definately doing Black Friday shopping. I can't wait!

I'm sorry that you don't get to see your family. :( I think my husband wishes we couldn't see ours (okay, mine) every single holiday. :)

I've never tried the skinny jean thing. It just looks uncomfy and restrictive. But the look always looks cute. I go back and forth.

How about you compromise on the Friday shopping thing? Buy yourself just one sweater, and then shop for others with the rest of the money. That's okay, right?

And thank you for the giveaway, you are awesome!
We are going to AZ and NV for Christmas to be with my husband's family. I have NEVER been away from my family on Christmas. I know I'm gonna be so sad. I'm gonna cry. A lot.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Sorry you won't be able to see your family.

My older brother is flying in tonight but I will not see the entire rest of my family either. Does make me a bit homesick. Sending you a big hug. Have a great holiday.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
And yeah, I am not doing the whole Black Friday thing either
