Happy New Year

It is so cold and windy out that we decided to stay in tonight. We were thinking about eating out, but were actually feeling rather lazy. So we stayed in and cooked up a DiGiorno’s pizza for supper and are going to watch television and watch the ball drop and call it a year. This has been a rough year for many people; I hope next year is a better one for us all! With the presidential campaigns going on, it will certainly be very interesting to say the least!

Merry Christmas to all

Today was a busy, but happy day. Lots of friends and relatives, lots of good food. Not many presents because everyone is feeling the budget crunch. But what is really important at this time of year is getting together with people you care about, right? Christmas is about being with loved ones, and that is what happened, so it is all good. Hope you had a good Christmas too!

4 Must-Have Bags

A bag is a woman’s best friend. You are never without it. As you would choose a friend, it’s important to choose a bag that is reliable and that will last you far into the future. Here are four bags every woman should have in their closet. Thanks to Groupon Coupons, you can stock up on all four and still make big savings. You don’t have to spend any money upfront to use them. Neimanmarcus has a wide selection of good looking bags to serve you far into the future.

  1. Cross-body Bag

The cross-body bag is perfect when you want to use your hands without having to worry about the safety of your bag and its contents. The reason why you can wear it across your body is because it has a long strap. Your hands are free to carry things, and to eat and drink while walking, for example. You won’t lose sight of your bag at any time and it can’t easily be snatched from you in the street. It comes in lots of shapes and sizes and you can have your pick at Neimanmarcus.

  1. Clutch Bag

These bags are particularly suitable for either a day or evening occasion when you are going somewhere by car and only need a few essential items in your bag like identification, cell phone and credit card. They come in a variety of colors and shapes, and many are simple but charming. Be sure to save some coupons for one of these. In shape they can be round, square or rectangular. If they do come with a handle, it can be tucked away or folded.

  1. All-in-One Bag

This kind of bag can double up as gym, shopping or college bag. You would stuff it with your laptop, files, magazines, books and other bulky items you need to have at your disposal all the time. They usually have two straps and are slung over one shoulder, but to avoid shoulder strain, swop them from one shoulder to the other regularly.

  1. Compartment Bag

This is usually a roomy bag whose interior has a series of compartments and zips to make it easier for you to find what you want at the click of a finger. People often have problems locating their pens, keys or cell phone at crucial moments.

 

Thanksgiving

Well, I can’t believe the year has gone by so quickly. It is already turkey-time again!! I have nothing special planned this year. No family or friends. Everyone has their own plans. So, I think I will spend a quiet day, watching the parades and hopefully some good movies and crocheting. I am working on a blanket for my cousin. I don’t think I’ll even cook anything special unless I get hungry and change my mind at the last minute.

Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. All the food you can eat, and you get to see family you have not seen since last year (and you get to send them home at the end of the day too)!!
