Christmas in March

My friend and I finally got together this past weekend to have our annual Christmas lunch. I know, it is March but you do what you can. We had a very nice lunch at an out of the way place that didn't mind us sitting there gabbing and catching up for two and a half hours.

In my bag were two new books. My friend knows me so well. One of the books is Talk of the Town by Karen Hawkins. It looks like a fun book. The other book is A Virgin River Christmas by Robyn Carr. I collect Christmas books so this is a great addition to my collection. In addition to that, I have started reading the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr. I have read the first one, Second Chance Pass, and the second one, Temptation Ridge, is in my TBR pile. This book goes along with the series so it was very much appreciated.

I always enjoy my gifts from this friend. We have decided in interest of the economy and the trouble we have finding time to get together, that we are going to just have an ornament exchange in the future. Maybe next year we will have Christmas in February or maybe even January.

Mmmm, Popcorn

Why is it that you can eat delicious food and yummy biscuits at Cracker Barrel until you are so full you don't want to move? Then you run into Target for coffee filters, walk past the snack shop and the smell of the fresh popped popcorn makes you want to walk right over there and buy some.

In other news, WII Fit has proclaimed my new "age" to be 31! Although we won't talk about the weight it claims for me. After 5 weeks of the biggest loser contest at work, I have only managed to lose 4 pounds. With only one week left I have determined that I just donated my money. I fear that my love of eating (see cracker barrel and popcorn referenced above) has been my downfall.
