toss in the towel now, my friend. I'd head right to that couch (bon-bons in hand) and park it until Thanksgiving!
You've been a blogging machine lately, I love it. It makes "home" not so far away when I can still sneak peeks of my favorite people's lives. ;)

TOTALLYYYYYYYYY stealing your post idea. And in December, we need to add a "day for the ladies of leisure to get together and have coffee". :)

Good thing those bon-bon's come in convenient 'to-go' sizes... ;)

Funny. And true. Fun post. I'm worried about what MargaretinWV said though...do we have to wait to get to heaven to get some real rest around here?

Awwww, and you didn't even have time to MAKE the bon bons--because heaven KNOWS you wouldn't have just BOUGHT them!
