Starry Night

Completed a book :)
Every year in December I like to read a Christmas type of book, to get me in the Christmas spirit…not that I need any help in that department :)
Mind you, as you can see in the photo, there is no snow here at all. So I may need some help believing Christmas is on its way.

We took a family trip to Minneapolis this weekend,  I had noticed in Barnes & Noble, that they had these Christmas novels for a very good price!
I didn't have my cheater glasses with me, so I couldn't read what each one was about….but these types of books are usually all pretty much the same as stories go.
I call these types of books, Easy Reads as the stories are pretty predictable.
Not my normal type of reading, but enjoy them once a year :)
I bought them all!
I read one of them on our drive home…so an easy 4 hour read.

Of course we headed to Mall of America since it was a family trip, and you know we have to go there when the girls come along.

I was informed that the Pioneer lady was going to be there.
I am not a follower of hers, as you all know how much I LOVE to cook, (read that with as much sarcasm as you can muster).
But a friend of mine does and asked me if I could get a signed copy of her book…which I was going to do.
That was until we saw the line ups….crazy!!
And we were there at 7:45 am before the mall opened.
But I did pick her up one of the Pioneer Lady's new cook books :)

I will share with you the purchases I made in later posts.
Because the Walking Dead isn't on :(  We are going to start a new (to us) series, Prison Break.
Kristy has seen all of the seasons and has raved about it…so this is our new show to watch with Kristy for now :)

I hope you all have a very Creative Day :)

Tracy :)


  1. Hope you had a good trip. Kirsten loves the Pioneer Woman and has all her cookbooks and even makes her recipes. She once came here and I was lucky enough to yo and see her epeak.

  2. Looks like you all had a good trip. I Love Ree Drummond (Pioneer Woman) I watch her cooking shows every weekend

  3. Sounds like it was a fun trip, Tracy! Enjoy your new show, February feels so far away... ;)

  4. I usually like to read one of those Christmas stories around this time too :) I'm reading the Outlander series right now.

  5. It sounds like a fun trip!! I do watch the Pioneer Woman's cooking show sometimes, but her recipes aren't health-conscious at all, so I don't try any of them. Can't wait to see what you purchased!! Have a great day :)

  6. I ADORE Christmas stories. I usually buy a new Christmas story every year for inspiration! As a matter of fact, I just wrote one of mine own. I'll start sending it out in May.

    I also ADORE road trips!

    Merry Christmas!

  7. I have watched the pioneer show a couple of times. Sounds like you had a great trip, it was good you didn't have snow to drive through.

  8. Prison Break was a great show....I was so sad when it ended!!!!!

  9. Prison Break was a great show....I was so sad when it ended!!!!!
