Shop Till I Drop........

The Ghost of Christmas Shopping PAST

The Ghost of Christmas Shopping FUTURE

But, for today-----I'm looking forward to a day when my feet will hurt less, my legs won't give out before I find the perfect gift and LUNCH will not be a major activity!

LapBanded Shopping!!!!!

Could my day get any better?

Look what I just found out about!

They come in individual packages that you can slip right into your Christmas-y red purse (you all have one, don't you?)! Why didn't I think of this!!!! You order tequila over ice (the bartender will look at you like "whoa, ain't she a bad ass!") and then when no one is looking, you slip this little packet out of your purse, quietly stir it in that straight tequila and woo-hoo, you got yourself a LapBand-friendly Margarita! And, I'll bet that after your 2nd little secret margarita, you won't be hiding anymore! Heck, you'll be dancing on the bar wearing those little packets as earrrings (or pasties....). This is almost as good as smuggling one of those bags of wine (pull it out of the box...) into concerts in a purse with a hole cut in the side for the spout. And it ranks right up there with wrapping a box of wine in birthday paper....masquerading it as a can take it anywhere!

Thinking "inside the box" today......margaritas and wine! Like I said....could my day get any better?

A Lapbanded, Optimistic Turkey..........................

What will you be wearing at your Thanksgiving table this year?

I am going to wear a belt instead of an elastic waist.

And, for that, I am filled with gratitude.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." -

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thanksgiving........
