I decorated for Christmas on Friday. I did some shopping at Big Lots, they have cheap and pretty candles and glass ornaments. I decorated for Christmas even though I wasn't going to because of moving and packing. When I told Dave he was so disappointed that I decided to decorate after all. I am glad I did. Our house is so warm and Cheery with the Christmas decorations. It put me in a great mood for the weekend. Friday night Dave and Holly O brought over their new board games. We played two rounds of DVD Clue. It was a lot of fun.
We spent Saturday in Eugene with Dave and Holly O. It was Holly's birthday and we went to BJ's for lunch--they have great salads! I know it's a pizza place, but they have so much more than that. They gave Holly a free cookie ala mode for her birthday. We love shopping in Eugene because they have a lot of stores we don't have like Old Navy, Trader Joe's, World Market and Costco. We didn't get to go to Costco, but that might be for the best. We are supposed to be getting one here, but it's been in the works for years and we aren't holding our breath.
David and I still had a $50 GAP card we got from MyPoints, so we stopped there. I honestly didn't find a lot that I liked there but I found a cute overpriced sweater and Dave found a nice pair of jeans. The sales-guy tried to talk him into "slim" fit jeans, but the ones he got were already "slimmer" than he usually gets. The other salesguy at the counter was all "Emo-ed" out. I just don't get it. It doesn't look right. I know I'm sounding really OLD right now but I just don't think it is flattering for guys to dress in skin-tight jeans. I am glad David doesn't dress like that.
We also found some Christmas treats and coffee at World Market and some clothes at Old Navy. We didn't really do Christmas shopping because we already got stuff for most people. We did more Christmas shopping Sunday in town. It rained all day, but it wasn't really gloomy because of all the Christmas decorations.
I love this time of year.
