At the Galleria

My little girl wasn't feeling too well yesterday.  She developed a slight body rash which is the first time it has happened.  She never had any type of baby rash before and she didn't eat anything new this weekend so I wonder what has triggered this sudden condition.
I hope she will feel better soon and we can go out again like this weekend.  I took her out to the Galleria on Saturday to play at their indoor playground because it was colder than usual outside.  It was incredibly crowded.  It seems the Christmas shopping rush has started earlier this year.
We admired the huge Christmas tree they placed at the center of the ice ring.

We didn't go window shopping but we did stop at the Sanrio store!
I was very tempted to buy their miniature dollhouse furniture!
They had a very cute Hello Kitty Christmas tree on display!

And many handbags!!!

And Wizard of Oz themed Hello Kitty plushies!
(I know Danzel from Silver Shoes and Rabbit Holes would love this!)
I can't wait to be home again with my children.  Even though I only have 3 work days this week because of Thanksgiving, I feel sad more than ever when I leave baby in the morning to go to work.  If it was up to me, I would stay home and cherish every day I can have with my family.  But I am the only one with a stable income so I can't leave my job.
I will think of the wonderful long weekend ahead and be in good spirits for the next 3 days.  We are planning a big family reunion as usual and a family dinner as well.  I won't cook the turkey this year and I'll let somebody else take care of that difficult task.  Have you ever prepared a whole chicken/turkey before?  It is scary and gross.  Well at least it is to me.  I don't usually cook meat so I always do so reluctantly, even with pre-cut pieces of meat.  So imagine how challenging it was to prepare a WHOLE chicken.  I won't attempt again, I can tell you that.
What are you planning to cook for Thanksgiving?



  1. Hee hee. I don't do meat, either.

    LOVE the Oz Hello Kitties!!!!

    Hope your little one feels better soon! xoxo

  2. In Denmark we do not hold Thanksgiving, but some eat turkey on Christmas Eve. I have made turkey and yes it fills well in the oven. I wish you some lovely days and a lovely Thanksgivning.

    It is a very lovely Christmas tree, you have in your center.
    I hope your daughter has gotten over her rash.

    1. Baby is fine now, thank you! I didn't know Denmark also has a tradition to eat turkey fir Christmas!

  3. Hi Jane Cherie, I'm squeamish about meat too. :-) No, I've never cooked a whole chicken or turkey before, and I agree: it does sound gross. Hope your daughter feels better soon. That Hello Kitty dollhouse furniture looks fun! xo Jennifer

    1. She is ok now, thanks :) I didn't buy the Hello Kitty furniture but it was hard to walk away without getting something LOL
