ERIN OFF CAMERA: Sweets…Salvation…Stinker

Erin Off Camera

Happy Monday, everyone!




December 3rd.  It’s December 3rd.  IT… IS… DECEMBER… THIRD.  What?!?!?  It was 69 degrees today and felt like April or May.  Crazy.  I keep adding more Christmas decorations to our house in an effort to make it seem more like the season and we may be approaching “Griswold” territory.  I love Christmas.








SWEETS




I also love trying local spots for shopping and eating.  The weekend after Thanksgiving I indulged with my friend Michael Mackie

Here we are splitting a sweet treat at Creme.  If you haven’t been there, you MUST go.  It’s on 28th Street, just off Ingersoll.  Four of us tried the sampler (you pick three desserts) and we got Sonya the Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cake.  I ate most of it.








SALVATION








Saturday we spent a few hours ringing bells for the Salvation Army…








BELLS








We were all struck by how NICE shoppers were.  In our line of work we report a lot of bad news and we receive a lot of snarky, nasty, rude, hurtful feedback.  It was lovely to spend a few hours laughing and smiling and saying “Merry Christmas” and feeling good about doing something that benefits people in need.




BELLS2








If you dropped money in our kettle or just stopped by to say “hi” – thank you!




STINKER




Boy, oh boy… You may have noticed that I was sporting my Husker gear on Saturday.

Luckily, we went to The Nadas show that evening so I missed most of the game.  What a massacre!  Yesterday I asked my dad what happened and he said, “Our defense never showed up!!!”  I guess I should have known that since the score was 70-31.  I’m glad I’m not one of those people whose mood is influenced by how my team plays.  It’s just a game, right?
