An Early Christmas Present

This was a busy day.  I woke up early on this cold and rainy day and went for my Chemo treatment.  Afterwards, hubby and I went shopping for our granddaughter's birthday present.  Today is her 6th birthday!  She wanted a Justin Bieber doll that sang.  Oh Lord, please, help me find one, just one, that is all I need.  Walk into Kmart and there he was in all his teenage glory!  Yeah!  Drove over to our daughter's place so gift would be there when granddaughter got home from school.  Gave daughter her birthday gift ($$) because she wanted it early.  Her birthday is Christmas Eve. (Just inserting that if I have more grandchildren, let me put it on record, that April or May is a nice birthday month too!! Please no more December!!  thank you!)

My husband says, we have to go one more stop.  OK....didn't have a clue where...but it was a fantastic exclusive floral shop.  He ordered me a gorgeous Christmas centerpiece.  He almost never forgets. Every Christmas it is either a huge poinsettia or an arrangement.  It is gorgeous and I was thrilled!

My dress form that I won from Polka Dot closet came today...but I am not looking at it until after Christmas.  I want to give it my full attention!

Oh, and my Christmas card post.  When I said, "you get it don't you?"  I didn't mean there was a secret in the card....it was from Target last year and is all black and white with silver glitter.  It was such a vintage looking card, I had to buy them.  My husband thought the tree looked anemic!  He DID NOT GET it!  So I meant you think it is cute right???  I just got the biggest kick out of all the guesses....sorry to disappoint.

Well, really, all I have left to do is wrap a few presents...find something for my hubby, which trust me, is a NIGHTMARE!  I plan on making a few cookies...peanut butter blossums for my son.....and 7 layer for....ME!

But tomorrow?  What am I doing???

Meeting Liz from Rose Vignettes for lunch.  Yep, uh huh, that is right!  I know, I am a lucky girl.  Last week Marty, this week Liz!  Have I told you lately that I love Christmas!

Oh, and just because I find this so interesting and obviously quite the conversation topic this time of year..... if you see me, talk to me, or write me....please don't be offended cuz
Happy Birthday Jesus....the real reason for the season!!  

Joining Rose Vignettes for Fresh Flower Friday.

Ceekay, what a breath taking centerpiece and how sweet of him to do that. I knew the man must have good taste, because he married you, but his selection of this gorgeous centerpiece is the icing on the cake. We say Merry Christmas and happy birthday Jesus too. Great way to end your post. laurie

Love that floral arrangement, you must be thrilled! We have Happy Birthday Jesus at my place, too, and so thankful to Him for all He's done and does.


Vee said...

So glad that you found JB! I'm sure that your grandgirlie will love the doll. I know what you mean about praying birthdays a little further away from Christmas. My grands' birthdays are both in January. It's always a challenge. =)

Your hubby is a dear...what a gorgeous centerpiece!

Hi, I'm Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Hello dear friend,

That arrangement is almost as gorgeous as you! That hubby of yours!

Mine is hard to buy for too. Especially since he buys what he wants when he wants AND his birthday is in December. :(
So far I have one pair of 501's. How romantic.

Happy@Home said...

That hubby of yours is a keeper ... but you already know that. :) The centerpiece is absolutely beautiful.

Bella Vista said...

Hi Ceekay, the arrangement is stunning....how lovely! Your husband is so sweet.

It is Merry Christmas for us.

Hugs, Barb

The arrangement is gorgeous. All that running around you did makes ME tired! But never too tired to head out with friends! Have a fabulous time.
Hope to see you at "What's It Wednesday" again this week.
Hugs and happiness,
