Upcoming Plans

  • Initiating Cooking Mode towards the Thanksgiving dinner next Thursday. I'm mostly doing traditional dishes (turkey, cornbread stuffing, mash potatoes), but I might go with a twist for appetizers and salads. We'll have a couple from hubby's work who will be dining with us, and they're bringing dessert - I am having high expectations, as apparently the person who's making it has taken part in pie contests. Awesome. I'll post the menu and try to take some pics before we devour everything.
  • Find out what's to do during the holidays around downtown Chicago, as well as Naperville. For starters, I'm looking into this. I will have to pass on the Vienna Boys Choir next Friday as it's hubby's birthday, and I'm sure that it's not gonna be the kind of treat he'll ask for!

Ahhh... contest-winning pies, Christmas markets and Gluewhein. You really can't go wrong :-)

Make sure you take LOTS of photos!

I'm planning to! I'm already thinking of where could I get the cheapest batteries for the camera, cause I'd like to have a lot with me just in case!

Rather than the cheapest, consider the more expensive ones. I find Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries last FOR EVER. They're expensive, but so worth it!!

I usually buy rechargeable ones to save some, but for some appliances they just "deflate" way too soon. I'll write down those you recommend!
