SSS gifts & A whole new meaning to the word STUFFED

What a wonderful 3 days and 3 different family homes we had. AND I AM NOT BEING SARCASTIC WHEN I SAY THAT! We kicked off Thanksgiving on Wednesday at my MILs where I waddled out to the truck after all the glorious food AND lemon pie, then Thursday was my FILs, I was starting to sway or is it bob at any rate I was lettin it all hang out. Then today was my moms house and lilest bean could pretty much just roll me to the car-I asked her to drive me home but her feet couldn't reach the gas pedal...

It was so nice getting to spend time with family these past few days-typically Ima one house girl for Thanksgiving(we have a LARGE family mr gp & I)-I feel obligated to eat everything-I wouldn't wanna hurt anyones feelings-so a few years ago I said I would go to only one family members house and rotate each year-this year I broke my rule and went to three homes and my 'Calvins' will never be the same-

In a few short weeks I will do this all over again and I am pretty sure the WHOLE reason we have New Years Day is so we can over-indulge during the holidays then resolve to starve diet for the rest of the year till we cave about 3 days in and eat a whole bag of chex mex...Proclaiming that muffin top really isn't so bad.


In the SSS news tonight a couple more participants recieved their gifts:
Colleen Marie
all got some really nice things from their SSS exchange partners, also I have gotten several emails with DC#'s so a few more of you should be getting packages any day now.

Deb from Postcards from the Edge has gotten a couple gifts, her SSS exchange partner is a sneaky one and VERY creative-I just happen to know who debs partner is and I giggle everyday waiting to see what she comes up with next.

If you have recieved your sss gift and blogged about it BUT I neglected to do a post about it PLEASE let me know so I can share on my blog 'too' or is it 'to' cuz I know it's not 'two' oh heck you know what I mean. Let me know...

If you have recieved your sss gift and have not blogged about it please do so, we all wanna know what ya got and your sss partner is hoping she made you happy.

I hope you all are having as much fun as I am shopping for your partners-don't forget the last day to ship is Dec 10th.

My confession for today: I give a whole new meaning to the phrase 'this is how I roll' now I am gonna go eat a bag of chex mex and watch Elf-Only 33 more days till '09 and I hafta 'resolve'


  1. I only had one Thanksgiving, but I've been at the same house for three days and we had three dinners with lots of guests each night. My cousin who is a brand new out of culinary school cooked up a storm this week and honestly, I've never had food that tasted so good so many days in a row. I was in food heaven.

    I am so excited to see what everyone has gotten. I have just had a blast with this little gift giving event. Thanks again and again for putting the whole thing together.

  2. Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  3. What? You mean we can TELL who we are now? I wanna!

  4. Sounds like you have had a good holiday season--so have I, which is actually very strange for this family, but I will take it

  5. Aw, what a great holiday you've had! Nice way to start the season, eh?

  6. I wish I could have had three Thanksgiving meals! I get too full too fast. And, I don't want to get full. I want to be able to eat until I'm tired!

    Since my birthday party is tonight I guess it's a good thing I didn't eat three Thanksgiving meals. I'd feel silly hanging out with my pants undone all night! LOL!

  7. I barely survive 1, let alone 3! LOL

  8. Swinging by from SITS to say hello! Have a great weekend!

    I have to mail my SSS package Monday! I will get you the DC #

  9. The SSS sounds like fun, I look forward to doing it next year. And oh yeah, I'm rolling with you!

  10. let's resolve to resolve together! in the meantime, i plan to continue to pig out. there's leftover pumpkin pie to be eaten!

  11. Glad you have had a good holiday!! :)

  12. Hello god...it's me margaret.

    I am out of the bed for a short reprieve. Probably a false sense of well being.

    Happy to hear your holiday was yummo-licious! Talk to you later!!
