2010 Gratitude Challenge – November 27

2010GratitudeChallengeButton Today I’m thankful for an afternoon away with Brian.  We don’t get out much – just the two of us – and that’s fine.  But, when we do, that’s great too. 

Today we went for lunch at Panera Bread – yum!  Then, we did some Christmas shopping at the Disney Outlet, Christmas Tree Shops, Target, Toys R Us, and BJ’s.  We had a very successful trip.  We made a very large dent in our Christmas shopping (especially after we got home and I placed my Amazon order – my cart has been building up for a few weeks now!)

A new, cheery tree topper rounds out the decorations.
