Books and Boardgames Gift Guide

Welcome to my last post of 2022.  I don't know about you but this year flew by for me.  This year has been kind to us. Our biggest blessing is having our #1 and Adorable Jonathon back in Texas. I love having all my chickadees within driving distance.

Here's a birdseye view of what I am up against in Emptynesterville.  My friend Lori dropped off this delicious box of Godiva chocolates.  Evidently, the Mister has been snacking on them. He then did his best to cover up his crime.

Gadgets and Gizmos Gift Guide


I hope that you had a good week.  Have you finished your holiday shopping?  Mine is done.  I have to pick up a few more things for myself, and I'll be able to call it a day.

Did you watch Harry and Meghan?  I enjoyed learning more about Meghan's childhood and the royal romance through their own words.  What did you think?  I'm dying to know.  Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Prime Time Best of 2022

I hope that you enjoyed your weekend.  We crossed some last-minute shopping off our list and had some friends over for chili night. 

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I participate in a monthly link-up over at The Other Side of the Road.  Bloggers gather together with their posts detailing their purchases from Amazon.  It's amazing what great things some of them find.  In December, we were asked to list the most popular items sold throughout the year.  Stop over to Tanya's blog to get the latest scoop on other bloggers' buys.

Here are a few items that I bought this month.

Gift Guide for Great Girlfriends


I hope you had a good week and have managed to stay healthy. A lot of colds/flu are going around.

I had a wonderful day on Friday.  I spent it with my friends, Miss Deb and Kristin.  We attended a Holiday House tour in Dallas.  I took a bazillion photos, which I will share with you next week.

Gift Guide for the Millennial

I hope that you had a good week.  Like most of the country, we've had the craziest weather.  I don't mind the cold, but when it is accompanied by the wind, I refuse to go out and do my walk.  So for two days, I stayed in and watched workout videos. 

Yup, you read that correctly, watched.

I hope that you aren't one of those doubters that believe you actually have to do the videos.
Talk about old school!

I am posting this early because I am off for an adventure with a couple of buddies tomorrow morning. 
I'll give you a hint.
Three words: Christmas House Tour.
