1- Craft show is over. And boy am I glad. It didn't go as well as I had hoped. I figured a 5 day show would yield twice as many sales as a 2 day show. Alas, that was not the case. So I baked twice as much as I needed. Really wish I hadn't.
2- Candy Cane Kisses. Seriously. Delicious. Don't even get me started on how much I love them. Wait, am I repeating myself? That's probably a sign that you should run out and get some, pronto.
3- I have 11 more days of vacation to use before the end of the year. Not as impressive as last year's total at this point, but it should offer a nice long Christmas vacation on top of several shopping days. And I can't argue about that. I might even see a movie or two in December!
4- I have a confession to make. For years, I thought I hated pumpkin. Like, seriously BELIEVED in my soul that I hated pumpkin. But 2 weeks ago at work, we had a taste test/contest involving pumpkin. I made pumpkin spice cupcakes. I didn't taste them before hand. But in order to participate, I had to taste the other competitor's work. . .
And it turns out. . .
I don't hate pumpkin.
I hate the slimy version of pumpkin that makes up pumpkin pie. I don't like the texture. But the flavor of pumpkin? Not so bad!
I admit that I didn't give pumpkin a fair shake.
judgy judgy me.
5- I have a request. If anyone sees a screaming deal on a portable DVD player in the next few weeks, will you yell in my general direction? I feel that we MUST have one for our drive to AZ for Christmas, but all of our business expenses of late mean that we need one that won't break the bank. I'm ALMOST tempted to go out on Black Friday to find one. . .
but then I remember how I'd pretty much do ANYTHING not to go out on Black Friday.
