Holiday Spirit and Underwear

Well - you know how poem goes...  'the stockings were hung by the chimney with care'.........

NOT AT MY HOUSE!

No tree - no stockings...  no goodies...  and then I saw THIS::::

Now, mind  you, I could use some underwear........... but the point hit home...
So - I ordered up some goodies..........
First order was to a great little place called Southern Supreme - in North Carolina - 
They make this "fruitcake" - but it's really nutcake - oh my my is it good - not much of that candied 'stuff' - just loads of nuts............ yummy.  Southernsupreme.com.  You really should look at their website... it's a family business that went viral.

I also got some chocolate from them, too!

Next I ordered up some presents - DH is getting some new clothes - he wears clothes until , oh, well, you know... holes under the arms, etc....  and he has lost weight, so I found some yummy knit shirts and a very cute sweatshirt/hoodie for him...  can't buy him pants online or he would get some of those, too.  He also got some fun little stocking stuffers (I better find those stockings).

And, presents for people I won't see this year , too...  sisters, mom, etc. 

It was great fun until, suddenly, my holiday fun came to a slamming halt:

CREDIT CARD DECLINED!!!!

Eeks...  call VISA - what on earth is wrong............

And the absolutely insane response:::

YOU WERE MAKING AN UNUSUAL NUMBER OF PURCHASES.

GOOD GRIEF, VISA-LADY  - IT'S CHRISTMAS...........

LAUGHING, LAUGHING......

MAYBE THE VISA LADY WILL GET UNDERWEAR IN HER STOCKING.

How rude!!!! I guess it's good that they monitor, but when you're in the mood to shop, you shouldn't be impeded by Credit Card Declined!

This comes with all best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful and wonderous 2012!
