The best pic that I got yesterday (below)
Today we ended up at a bunch of stores. We didn't plan on it. We went to Sleepy's to get T a mattress, then ran in Target. Anthony realized yesterday that his tire on his truck was low. He checked today & there was a nail in it. So we were home for about an hr & 1/2 after we went to Target & then we dropped his car off at the tire place to get fixed. We went to a consignment shop & got T a cute red dress for X-mas. We thought we'd stop in Walmart (got a bunch of things) & then ran to Big Lots. We saw a really nice Garland with white lights that goes around your front door & 2 little trees for the front steps (a set) in the Big lots flyer. We figured we would get that done today. Tomorrow is a craft fair & parade & then out for dinner. So no more stores this weekend.
I'm working on a few fun things for my blog.

One of the items that I have my eye on is the fireplace candelabra I've been wanting one since we moved into our house. We never had a fireplace before & we've lived here for 3 years & have never lit it. Every year I bug my hubby to light it, but we never get around to it.
So I think that would look great, since we will probably never light our fireplace.
You can find many of the items on your Christmas shopping lists on the CSN stores website.
We took family photos outside today for our Christmas cards. It was so cold today. Our bird bath is frozen. Those are my new Uggs below. Still not sure about them. They're tight, so I want to send them back, but I ordered them from Overseas & it costs a lot to send them back. So I'm trying to break them in & hope they stretch a bit. I read that they mold to the shape of your foot & you have to give them 2 or 3 weeks. I've been trying to wear them around the house, so I don't get them dirty in case I can somehow return them.

I even gave it a try. It's a lot of fun. I now know why Anthony spends 2 & 1/2 hrs mowing the lawn. I'm allergic to grass, so I'm all sneezy now. I ran out of Zyrtec yesterday. You can kind of see my snazzy new wrist warmers in the pic, that I got @ one of the fairs.

Bella Tucker is an 9-year-old girl who attends South School Elementary in Londonderry, New Hampshire and is a member of the Phantom Gymnastics team. Bella came down with a near fatal infection on Easter Sunday. Doctors gave little hope for this third graders’ survival, but after five days in a coma she miraculously survived Streptococcus Pneumonia Sepsis with DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation).
Unfortunately, her survival from this infection was not without significant cost. The infection caused extensive tissue damage, and on April 27, 2010, Bella underwent quadruple amputation surgery and is currently facing an extremely long and hard recovery at Children’s Hospital in Boston with extensive rehabilitation to follow, as she learns to live life without her limbs.
Donations can be made to The Bella Tucker Fund via the PayPal link or by mail to:

My friend Watched T on Friday & I did some shopping alone. She's become a terror to shop with lately, but most of the time I have no choice to bring her with me.
I'm so happy that I'm feeling better. I haven't been feeling good for a few weeks. I also had a bad migraine on Friday too.
We went to dinner with some friends last night to celebrate 3 Fall birthdays. It was nice to see them. I got a really cute photo frame the other day @ Christmas tree shop. It's going in my office (that is pink, black & white)
I took this pic last night to add to it & realized I'm totally out of ink for my printer. Well I still have a cute new pic of me & the hubs.
My parents came to visit today. I hadn't seen my Mom for 5 weeks & my Dad was in CA for 3 weeks. They came to visit & we were so happy to see them.

Shutterfly has tons of photo greeting cards to choose from. Photo cards & regular holiday cards. I love this one.
They have tons of birthday invitations too. This is almost the same style as the holiday card. Of course this one below would be my favorite. Pink, purple, blue & cupcakes. Heaven. I think I'll use this for Tara's 4th birthday next year. Thinking way ahead since her b-day isn't till July.
It's not too late to order your Thanksgiving cards
Do you have a blog? If you do & would like your own freebies, go here to find out how bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly. I am getting free cards in exchange for this post. Make sure you mention Drama Queens Mum as a referral.

Our Mom group just started a scrapbooking club. We had our 1st 1 on Thursday night. I got 2 pages done. I really want to try to do 1 page a week again if I can.
Finally ordered some Ugg boots online.
I can't wait for them to get here & I can have warm & cozy feet. I hate being cold. I don't do well in the Winter at all. I'm hoping I ordered the right size & I won't have to send them back. I got a good deal on them.
Yesterday I had a much needed "Me day". Hubs took our daughter to a b-day party. I went to the craft fair, the library, a nail salon to find out how much it will cost for me to have a nail paraffin dip done. Watched the Housewives of NJ finally finally & started watching some of the reunion show, but then Drama Queen came home, so I shut it off. I really need to do more of these days.
