Deep sigh
Well, I'm done! Except I haven't made Minnie's Rum Cake that she will be picking up tomorrow morning. Oh and my Rum Cake, my Mom's neighbor's Rum Cake, my neighbor's Rum Cake and Kelly Ann's Rum cake! AND I have all of my Thanksgiving cooking to do for my Mom's house. But the hard part is truly over!

My husband gave me strict orders to NOT clean the house or anything else today. He said, "Babe, don't do anything but rest. I will take care of the house. You and that baby need to do nothing but lay on the couch." Seriously ladies, I am one blessed Mama to have a husband like that! I've been calling him McHottie all week and he LOVES it. I could not have done this order without him. He is already thinking of ways to make it easier on me for the Christmas order AND he told me I could get a massage today at Mom's salon but the massage lady was booked. I really need to dote on my man and brag to all of you. Our men need that!

So now that I am done and have all of my profit in hand. I will for sure be heading to Target on Friday! I can't wait! Christmas shopping will be something these 30 week pregnant feet have to deal with because I am not missing out on the sale. No way

Oh and I feel the need to say this so I am going to. I have received email after email today about boycotting Wal-Mart this Friday. I am not sure how I feel about this and many of you probably would not care to hear my opinion but I do know that Wal-Mart's employees have been given permission to say Merry Christmas this year. Will I be going to Wal-Mart this Friday? Yes. Do I believe that Homosexuality is a sin? Yes. However, my thoughts on boycotts will not be popular among Christians AT ALL. But here's the deal, I don't really care.I do know this. If we ever want homosexuals to be saved or walk through the doors of our churches, we need to change our attitude BAD! Boycotts have a lot of anger behind them. Boycotts do not show the love of Jesus. As for Target, well a lot of people don't shop there either because of the Happy Holidays vs. Merry Christmas greeting. I've done my research and last year during all of the commotion I was told by a Target cashier to have a Merry Christmas. Another time I was told nothing and I chose to say Merry Christmas.

I have a lot of friends boycotting Wal-Mart. I don't think badly of them, I don't question them. If that is what they choose to do, then so be it. I don't agree and that's okay too.

Okay so back to my happy blog. I never intended on talking about this but it just came out!

Last year I was 36 weeks pregnant and I went shopping the day after Thanksgiving. It was as much fun as every other year. Treat yourself to breakfast after. Enjoy!!

It is so glad to read someone else who has the same opinion about not boycotting Wal-Mart. I totally agree. Not to mention that these stores that support homosexuality are not "christian" based, so why hold them to "christian" standards? Ok, I'll get off my pedastool now. I agree with you sister! I'll be heading out to Wal-Mart today, tomorrow and most likely Friday too! To many things to get! :)

What a great idea....how can we expect anyone to think kindly of Christians if we 'boycott' anything!???

BTW, hello for the first time!...love your template! Pink is my favorite color...LOL

Glad you are done with the big order!

Girl you know, I knew I loved you for SO many reasons!!!
Thanks for the link, btw!

I agree about boycots, I simply have not been convicted in that area. It is not my battle right now in this season of my life. I simply allow God to convict me of particular shops/events he might not want me to participate in/shop at but I DO NOT SEEK THEM OUT!! I have thought and prayed about the Wal-Mart thing and I can tell you, I have not been convicted to boycot the store that quite frankly BLESSES my family each and every week with fair and reasonable prices and decent quality merchandise. I can feel confident going to their store that I am getting a better price than Target, and for this budget-livin' mama, that means the difference between homemade lasagna and macncheese....er, I mean THE WORLD!!!!

Y'all have a wonderful thanksgiving day tomorrow giving thanks to God our Father in heaven for all the riches he has bestowed upon us in Christ Jesus.
I will say a prayer of thanks for you.

(Happy shopping on Friday as well!!!)

Hobby Lobby opens at 8:00 in the morning :) - I will be there. They will be playing Christian music and Christmas music. They will say Merry Christmas! I will say Merry Christmas to everyone and every place I shop this season. I will shop at Wal-Mart. I am ok with those who boycott but I do not boycott.

This is probably said by people very flippantly but if we can just all remember:

JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!

luv u

I run a website, Babes in Blogland, that lists ttc, expecting, and parenting bloggers to help us all find one another. I've added your site to the blogroll. If you need me to correct any information or if you would like for me to remove the link, please let me know.

Thank you and congratulations.
