Update on the darn lights for the two pots of greens by the front door.....
While shopping at Christmas Tree Shops yesterday I saw lights for $2.50 a box. Bought two, one set for each pot....that works for sure. Brought them home and put them on the greens. The pot on the left looked great. The pot on the right, not so much.....only Half of the lights worked. So, I guess I return that box and try again :( I did replace the batteries on the wreath so now those lights are bright and cheery at least :)
As I said, I did some shopping yesterday. I still have a few more gifts to purchase. I haven't wrapped a thing yet. Maybe tonight. I do love to wrap!
Dale and I are going on a little trip this weekend. Our son and his family (we live with them) gave us an early Christmas gift....tickets to the Micheal W Smith, Amy Grant and Jordan Smith concert in Baltimore! Jordan Smith won The Voice last year.....I'm a big fan of that show and a big Jordan Smith fan. Totally excited to hear him sing in person!! This gift includes a night in a hotel in walking distance to the concert. It's also a few blocks from Inner Harbor. We are instructed to spend Monday there....the aquarium is amazing and been years since we were there. In all the times we were at the aquarium....I was pregnant....with twins, we carried babies in back packs (more than once), we had elementary aged kids, teens.....never just the two of us!
Winter has arrived....baby, it's COLD outside!
