    Woke up to a winter wonderland of white :scared1::scared1::scared1: So not ready to be driving in this stuff yet. I hate sn*w unless I can sit and home and watch it out my window. Guess mother nature didn't get the memo.

    Here's my list for today:

    boys off to school

    work today

    DS to video store to return game that doesn't work

    bath & body works to pick up twisted peppermint stuff

    dinner

    organize clothes boys have outgrown to be donated

    go through my christmas list to be sure I have everything bought - still need some stocking stuffers

    crash into bed

    Have a great day everyone!

    Good Morning Ladies- I have finally slept most of the night. Not sure why, but I have been having trouble sleeping so I am happy about that.

    Work-a lot of meetings today
    Dentist Appts- right about school
    Flash Mob Tonight at (The teachers are performing with the middle school choirs and we are doing a flash mob in the audience)

    I should end up with one hour at home from 4:30 to 5:30 if the dentist office is on time so fingers crossed.

    Trying to finalize dining reservations. Is CRT really worth two credit services? We are trying to decide?? Opinions please!!!

    I'm doing this and that. Woke up far too early and started thinking...we all know that's a bad idea.

    My list is long, to keep me busy and includes stuff I'll do on Thursday too...

    Library - Thursday
    Post Office for Christmas stamps - Thursday
    Hannaford for pie crusts/filo dough and walnuts and crackers for baked brie
    CVS
    Got a movie
    Stop to see Betsy, she has some sweaters to give me
    Staples
    Joann's for return
    Kohl's for stocking stuffers with Kohl's cash
    Pedicure Of course, I finally decide to have one and it snows!!
    Pick up lunch

    Bake cookies - Thursday
    Apply for more jobs!
    Drag out Sizzix and dies and cut out trees for Sunday's event (Jingle Bell Jamboree at the Youth Center - kids will be decorating bags so they can carry their loot from the day)
    Email girl scout troop parents for girls to work event and donations of baked goods for Sunday
    Free photo book!
    Clean out the black hole that has become my purse.
    Work on swaps?
    Read
    Dinner will be salad with chicken

    Make baked brie - Thursday
    Movie night with DH

    DH can't get out of work early enough to go to the 4:30 show tonight, so we'll probably go on Thursday.

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    We love CRT. We do breakfast every trip, it's become a tradition. The food is amazing (and it's the best cup of coffee we have all week). Last year my eggs were underdone and they gladly brought me the bread pudding French toast as a replacement. Hoo-boy! We want to do BOG, so maybe we'll try dinner at CRT this year...

    My opinion is no. Unless you have girls who dream about eating in the castle, then maybe yes or if you know you will get to the end of the week and have the extra credit left anyway, then maybe. Food was so-so and I just don't think it is worth the extra. Too many other really great places to eat to waste it there as far as we are concerned.

    Maybe the difference is we had dinner there and the boys didn't really find much they liked :confused3? My DH wasn't thrilled with the food either and ended up snacking like crazy the rest of the night. ;)


    Jennifer, your list sounds like a great way to spend the day. Have fun!

    I've honestly never even looked at the dinner menu. We love the breakfast, and I usually pay out-of-pocket so as to not 'waste' two meals. Last year's trip was a surprise. We booked in late May (I remember because it was the day before our anniversary) and DH didn't want to do the breakfast. One morning in mid-June, Morgan wanted to read me a poem she had written for her language arts class. It was titled "Where you'll find me..." and the first line was "The smell of French toast is in the air" She got that line out and I thought uh oh, I have to make breakfast reservations...did it that day. :thumbsup2

    Morning :)

    Michelle--Rachel and I love breakfast at CRT

    DH slept all night and he is in a better mood today.

    My list for today:
    Keep DH on his meds at the correct times (nurses messed this up yesterday :confused3)
    Call DH's surgeon to see when his surgery will be
    Allergy shots for Rachel and I after school
    Try to finish getting the house decorated--the girls only did the tree on Saturday
    Laundry
    Dinner--DH's choice

    Have a great day all :flower3:

    Cheryl, Hope your day goes smoothly today. It's miserable to have a loved one in pain and not be able to do anything about it. Hopefully surgery is soon!

    Exhausted! Did the flash mob for all 3 concerts (6th, 7th, and 8th). Ready for bed!!!

    Thanks for all the feedback on CRT. I am thinking of CRT, BOG, Chef Mickey's (the kids were disappointed we didn't go last trip :sad2:), and Teppan Edo as our table services. 3 of the 4 will be new to us. For our QS we really don't care as much except Starring Rolls is a must : )
