Diy spa gift baskets.

I am currently working of 4 spa gift baskets for my ladies in my life. 

I am wanting to add a few more items to the baskets.  Maybe another pair of socks and a candle.  If I was real creative I would buy some wine glasses and monogram them.  I have a older cricut that I could use on them.  Then maybe add a small trial size of wine with the basket.  I may need wipe down the cricut machine and attempt it this weekend. 
I need to pick up red filler and clear bags at Dollar Tree.  I also will make some pretty Christmas bows to use on the gift baskets.  
When I worked at the Flower Shop we made lots of fruit and gift baskets.  Everyone loved them and they are easy to make.  I went with the spa basket because my girls are girly girls.  I would love to have one of these baskets myself.  I can't wait to see the finished product!! 

I am trying to get ahead of my Christmas shopping this year.  So far I have wrapped the toys I have bought for the littles.  Which I am proud of getting done so early.  I told Mr. C, that I needed to wrap the gifts I had already bought so I could see what I had.  I am looking forward to Black Friday shopping with my cousin Brenda. 

First snow!!

Our first snow of the season! You all know I love fall/winter season.  Especially the cool nights, fresh snow and baking in the oven. When I woke up to this I was happy.  For just a moment I thought about staying home from work.  I would have read a book, wrote a few letters and drank some hot chocolate.  The perfect way to spend a day off.  then reality set in and I got dressed and headed to work.  I did get to Duncan early so I could work on this blog post.  
This is across the road from where we live.  Living out in the country is peaceful and quiet.  Love looking at the snow that hasn't been tracked on yet.  As warm as it is here in Oklahoma I bet it will be gone tonight when I get home around 7:30 pm. 
If I was younger I would be tempted to make snow angels in the snow.  Great memories from when I was younger.  Now I am waiting for the 2nd snowfall so I can make snow ice cream.  My mom use to make the best snow ice cream.  It was always such a treat for us. 
How would you spend a day home on a snow day? Would love to hear your stories!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my little ole blog.  I do appreciate it very much.

Have a great day my friends,
Karen

Loving my job!!

$7.00 gift card from my work!! 

Here I am at work.  Another day at the call center!

I am loving my job here at LegalShield.  I am truly blessed with this job.  This company has been incredible.  Love the incentives they offer. I believe that this company is somewhere I can grow as a employee.  
Working at a call center isn't for everyone.  But I think it is a good fit for me.

Trip to Ardmore Oklahoma

Aunt Kathy and I ate at a cute Chinese place in the mall.  It was a buffet and was good. 

Hobby Lobby to get a few items for the baby shower.  It is coming up November 3rd, 2018.  I love to check out Hobby Lobby every single time I get to Ardmore. They always seem to have some different items than the HL at Lawton Okla.  Today the focus was on anything I could use for the baby shower.  Of course I still checked out seasonal items as well. 
The main reason I went to Ardmore was to clean Aunt Kathy's house.  I got to her house about 11am and worked about 4 hours.  Once we got her house finished that is when we went into Ardmore. I didn't realize she wasn't feeling well.  
The trip to Ardmore was successful.  I did manage to find the things to make centerpieces for baby shower.  Now to get home to make my creations!

Getting ready to get on the phone.  I do enjoy my job.  I hope to climb the  ladder of success here at LegalShield.

Oklahoma Planner Crawl

Charlee, Teri and I headed to Tulsa!

Standing in line! We got to the convention center about 45 minutes early.
 
I left my house at 430 am.  Was meeting the girls at Riverwind  Casino & Hotel at 6:00 am.
I got there early so I went in early and played a couple of machines.  Did not win any money at all. 
It was about a three hour drive to Tulsa for us.  Charlee is our youngster,  Loved how excited she was for this event.  Was nice visiting and getting to know these ladies on the drive. 
 
when I seen this table I knew I wanted to sit here. It was sponsored by Plannerino Pieces &Pickinellies.  Loved the swag they gave each of us.  Just so you know I have yet to totally go thru my goodies and take pictures.  I have looked at everything but didn't take time to showcase all the awesome items I received.
 
Door prize table.  I was not a lucky winner of a door prize.  But sure enjoyed watching the ladies who did win a prize.  so many winners that day.  Although I will say this I think of the door prizes as a cool addition but not necessary.  That's just my personal thoughts. 
 
This is our table after we got back from lunch.  YES!!! I love my new journal!! I am just not sure when I will start using it.  As I am currently still using my Passion Planner.  
It felt like the gifts were overflowing.  The generosity of the sponsors blew me away. 
This is our tribe from #SWOKPS!  Great group of ladies to be around! I am looking forward to going back next year!  The day was perfect.  The ladies who put this together did a great job!
