The Holidays!

I don't have much to share here lately because my life has been rush, rush, rush, except for yesterday.  Yesterday was a day of ME!  I went to workout, then quick shower in anticipation for the day.  I had my hair appointment, then a mani/pedi.  After that it was a quick drive to the rest of the day....a massage and facial.  Yes, it was my day yesterday!  

Last Sunday I finally got my pantry cleaned out.  It has been on my list of tasks to complete since last spring and was just getting worse and worse with crap falling off of the shelves.  Well, Sunday I'd had it!  Looky here at what I accomplished.  I got rid of expired foods and filled a huge box with pasta and rice stuff to give to B&B2 and little Rio.  I only kept some brown rice and whole wheat pasta, the rest was GONE!  Amazing how much brown sugar I have amassed, and I don't even bake but around Christmas time.  Hopefully, I will get to use that up this year.  

I'm looking forward to the holidays even though they seem to be RUSHING to us so fast.  Afton will be home soon to have a wonderful Thanksgiving with us and I am THRILLED!  Then we will jump right into Bri's The Alliday Show.  It is an all family thing with a job for us all!  I won't have a booth this year but will join with Bri's booth and have lots of my notecards (from my paintings.)  Before Af flies back to LA we will again meet with family for a nice evening of 3-way and setting up our Christmas tree and stuff.  I've done this the past few years, including the mother-in-law, brother-in-law and husband and since Af will be here I'm thrilled to have her be a part of the set up. Of course, B&B2 and Rio will be here, that should be interesting with a toddler but what fun!

I love your pantry. There's nothing like an organized pantry to lift my spirits.
