Luck has been my lady tonight and this morning and last week. Three lucky happenstances I want to share with everyone.
Tonight I found the recipe that I had misplaced. On a hunch, I searched the gourmet.com site leading me to epicurious.com and I found my beloved Fresh Salmon Salad with Chickpeas and Tomatoes here. Happy dance! Love it! While on the hunt, I also printed some Moroccan themed chickpea dishes that sound fun and are vegetarian.
On November 8th, I attended a “Sip and Shop” at Joviality, a lovely shop in town co-owned by my neighbor, Mary Claytor, and a former customer of my shop, Abby McNinch. Joviality’s Facebook page is here. They have sweet affordable unique gifts for hostesses and teachers and I have bought many. My mission to spend money was to buy a swaddling blanket I’d seen on a previous visit. But first, I found a teal scarf and a pair of pretty earrings. But the “Mother load” was the last of its kind. My second lucky happenstance was finding my belly baby’s blankie. Green knitted with white polka dots.
And then this morning, I went ahead and ordered Christmas Cards! It wasn’t even on my things to do list. But I came across this post from Simple Mom’s blog entitled 6 Steps to a Relaxed Christmas. And there, a link to Cardstore.com led me to a deal of a lifetime. If you ordered your cards before Tuesday, November 20th, you get 70% off of your order. I grabbed a picture, consulted with the husband who needed to have them say “Happy Holidays” for some reason, and even got a quantity discount before my amazing 70% off. Yes, I got my 100 Christmas Cards for $54. I was nearly giddy for hours.
I hope everyone has a lucky week.
