Exciting Times....

Well, at least in my book! Last night Dear Hubby, Dear Younger Daughter and I stayed up til all hours watching "The Twilight Zone" Marathon on television!!! Episode after episode.....I really like those old crazy shows. I just giggled and laughed throughout the night. I'm really amazed at the creativity of the writers of that show. Rather awesome to watch them and find them to be so great 40-50 years later. It really was a great way to spend the time waiting for the New Year to come in.

At midnight, I kissed my sweetie, so looks like we'll be together at least one more year (*wink*)!!!! I remember the first New Year's we watched come in.....1981. We weren't dating then, but I remember! I sure hoped 1982 would bring me this wonderful man to call my own, and it did!!!!! Whoo Hoo!!! We married in 1983, so looks like it might last.

Today, Dear Older Daughter and I spent the day shopping. Lots of good deals. It's so much fun watching her shop. She's like me in that she sees something she likes, looks at the tag and says, "It's cute, but I'm not paying $27 for a t-shirt!" She found some great deals for herself, to take on the trip to North Carolina on Saturday. And, I picked up a few things for Dear Younger Daughter, who is constantly outgrowing everything I buy her within about 4 weeks! Yikes!!

Dear Older Daughter took me to lunch today, we had our nails done (me a pedi, her a mani) and had a fabulous day. It was worth the raising, cause I sure like her!!!

Hope your New Years Day was as good as mine.

And, I'm already blown away by the amout of comments!! Thanks so much quilty friends!!!

Sounds like you've raised her right----I love it when my daughter says...forget the fancy eating... let's use the money for shopping...

Has it really been 40 or 50 years since the Twilight Zone? Where has time flown? To the Twilight Zone? Maybe. Sure seems like we are in a twilight zone these days. Best wishes to you and yours for the new year.

DH and I did the Twilight Z thing also......did you see how "young" looking those actors are, but it was enjoyable to see those old shows.

Someday my DD and I will enjoy shopping together, when we go to the mall, she goes to her favorite stores and I go to mine and we meet for lunch afterwards.

My husband was glued to the TV watching the Twilight Zone also. He was so amazed at how many stars that we know now, were in those episodes.
