11/3......MY CUP RUNNETH OVER.....

You probably remember these cute cups from BIG LOTS, $2.oo each, I think...
I really like them a lot... and keep watching for more.

I found this rug full of cuteness at Penney's...50% off but still a little too much...but...I fell in love with it and what's a girl to do but take it home with her ??
***

And, as if my mugs and my rug weren't enough, I then found a cotton nighty with "ESPRESSO YOURSELF'' right on the front of it....SO.....
I sleep in it...make my DUNKIN DONUT coffee and use one of my cute cups and
stand on my cute rug....and GRIN...all at the same time...
***
***


Yep....started wrapping and bagging some Christmas gifts....
Remember....we have a large family... I shop all year long !!!
Oh, I won't add all the bows and glitz until I get ready to put them under the tree but just getting
some wrapped, some bagged sure does help me when that magical time is near !!
****

****



O, and I made some Buttermilk biscuits that turned out really good....
I am ALWAYS on the quest of a mean country biscuit !!
These were nice and flaky...
Just love 'em....
***

Some good fried country bacon and homemade jelly....
O HONEY !
****
DON'T WORRY....I made YOU one, too !!
Let me get you a cup of coffee...cream?...sugar? are do you take it black ??
***********
Leaving you with a laugh.....

EVER FEEL LIKE YOU JUST MISSED THE BOAT ??

;O)

DAY THREE OF THANKFULNESS:
How thankful I am that Jesus Christ died for you and for me and our sins so that we could have everlasting life.
When I really stop and think of all HE endured, just for US...it makes me cry and cry.

I am linking with MARY for RUBY TUESDAY

You are just too organized- wrapping presents already! Now I have never heard of anyone putting jelly on a bacon sandwich, but I might just have to try that. Your biscuits DO look good!

My Ruby Tuesday

Kathleen Grace said...

I always a happy place here BJ:>) I'll have my coffee with cream and a touch of sugar please, oh how I wish I could have a cup with you. It looks like a lot of us are ready for a little Christmas here and there! God Bless you BJ!

Hootin' Anni said...

Hi again BJ....to answer your question about 'centering' the countdown widget above your blog posts....

open your edit blog, then open the gadget/widget that has your countdown to Christmas...when that is opened, just BEFORE the code for the countdown, add the word center with the tags < before the c and after the r in center add the > Then, at the END of the entire widget code...close the center tag by adding this: <*/center> (without the asterisk)

Hootin' Anni again. said...

Oh and by the way...I forgot, if you want it centered below your blog's header then you need to go in the entire edit HTML and toggle your entire code for the widget. If you want it that way, I'd be more than happy to do it for you, but I would need to go into your blog's coding myself 'cause it's too complicated to explain it...not complicated, but LONG!! rofl

Auntie E said...

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh BJ
That was just precious. I so loved that cartoon.

The biscuits looked so scrumptous, but where is the recipe? I didn't read it. They look to good not to share. I tasted mine, it was delish, but would love to make some. Yummy for tummy in the morning. Coffee smelled great. What a morning person you are. Loved it.

You asked for Debbie's website. Here is it honey. I know she would love to hear from you.

Robin said...

Milk and sugar please, and I'll take as many of those amazing looking biscuits as you can send my way :).

Hootin' Anni said...

Ps....again. LOL

You're more than welcome for the 'tip' for html.

Glad I could help you out.

Ralph said...

All pretty rubies here. The most intriguing is the biscuits and bacon and ?? I suppose the salty bacon with strong tastes might be tempered a bit with a sweet jelly accent. I may have to try this...

Tara said...

Oh gosh, in these first days of fall, don't we all just wanna come on down to W Texas and hang out in your kitchen for some pie?? YES!

Mimi said...

I can't believe that you are a "bag lady" too! That's what my kids call me. I just love to use them with pretty tissue (the cats love it) and curling ribbons and...well, you know...they are just fun!

BTW, would you like to come over and decorate my kitchen? I'll have coffee!

Charli and me said...

Good evening BJ,
Oh my, I'm just trying to catch up on my blogging and here you are wrapping Christmas presents LOL Now I'm feeling like an imperfect girl. I love your coffee mugs! All of your coffee things are awesome.Your always cooking up something yummy over here ♥

Justine said...

You know I love those mugs, and now I love the rug and the nightshirt! Gee, wonder if they make that in XXXENORMOUS? LOL

Girl, those biscuits looked so good until I saw them layered with bacon and JELLY. That is GROSS! Heeheeheeeeeeeeeeeee

Justine :o )

~Just me again~ said...

Oh I love these pictures. I've got to admit, bacon and jelly? Sounds strange. But ohhhhh those bisuits look delicious!

I've got a good chunk of my Christmas shopping done too. It's a great feeling.

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Wonderful post, BJ.

The biscuits look delish!!

The first try, J got beans instead of ground, the grinder is at home, so the beans will go home with us. Today we picked up ground. I'll let you know tomorrow, how we like it!:-)

Rhondi said...

Hi BJ
I am very impressed that you are wrapping Christmas presents already! The biscuits look so flaky and yummy!
Hugs, Rhondi

Risa said...

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

BJ-I have that nightshirt too! My rug in my kitchen is also coffee mugs as I have a bit of the latte theme in there. I love those mugs!
