I took today off and my husband and I went and did 95% of our Christmas shopping. We had a wonderful time together and I didn't have to shop by myself like all the previous years. I even found the rest of my Christmas dishes. My MIL bought me dishes last year but she only gave me 4 coffee cups and 4 salad bowls. I found the other 4 bowls, the other 4 coffee cups, 8 salad plates, and the creamer and sugar bowl. I called my MIL and let her know and told her I found them. She asked me if there were any other pieces to the set and she's buying the serving platter and large bowl for my gifts this year and my set will be totally complete. I'm so excited about that. I'm going to be serving Christmas dinner with my beautiful plates! We came home, I fixed Potato soup and cornbread and put my aching feet up. Talk about shop til you drop...but I only have to find two more gifts! Easy, peasy! I can do that in my sleep. Now, I get to wrap and put them all under the tree and get on with enjoying the rest of the month. I do have 4 snuggles to finish and some knitting to finish but I have so much time, I'm not feeling any pressure. Merry Christmas!
