Tis the season

This is the season for connecting with good friends and shopping... both are fun to do in Homewood.

I met up with a couple of local bloggers for a special holiday lunch. It doesn't seem to matter if you live down the street or across the country, we are connected through our blogs.
Sit down at a table together and we can chatter away~ it is like we are in each other's kitchens every day.
Rhoda and Leigh joined me at Nabeel's for a fun lunch and a little shopping after in downtown Homewood. We didn't buy much~ I did get some decorating ideas from Rhoda :-)

Speaking of shopping~
This is a special shop in Auburn. When we are in town we always have to stop in at The Flower Store. They have the most beautiful displays and the most unique gifts.
I love the aqua colored glass.
We didn't find anything that was good deal~ I guess my mind has been warped by TJ Maxx and Homegoods! I've got most of my gift getting done.
My favorite ad for the holidays has been... 'there is more about values than the price'.

Merry Christmas y'all!

Looks like a fun outing. I follow Leigh's blog and read about it there too! It's always nice to meet with other bloggers!

Looks like fun! I was over in Homewood today and it was packed! Nabeels is always a great place to while away a lunch hour. I hope you stopped by White Flowers!

I had such a wonderful time and look forward to the next lunch and shopping trip!

Oh, looks like a fun way to spend a day instead of rushing around the mall! Do all of you go to the same hairdresser or do strawberry blonds just naturally, have more fun?

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hey, Sandi! That was so much fun, but I don't remember what decorating tips I gave you, LOL. Let's definitely plan a Sat. in January & see who all wants to join us for a B'ham outing! Merry Christmas!

Rhoda~ well I told Bill that you suggested that new sofa, and that his lazy-boy needed to go into the other room... help me here girlfriend!
