It's Mistletoe time!!!!

Yes friends, today kicks off Mistletoe Marketplace, Mississippi's biggest Christmas trade show, and center of all things awesome. Last year, I got very close to all of my Christmas shopping done in one trip. It's almost all locally made or at least made by small businesses, so you can shop happily knowing that you're supporting the little guy. And dude, the free samples... honey butter on a biscuit... Everyday Gourmet... whoooaaaa mama.

I'll actually be there most of the weekend at the Clarion Ledger booth, where I'll be selling you a momslikeme.com t-shirt and handy shopping bag. (Why else would I be up this early?) Take them grocery shopping - they're good for the environment! You know you need more than one if you're taking them grocery shopping...

Unfortunately, the Clarion Ledger booth is right across the aisle from the Bear Creek Smokehouse booth. I'm going to have to chew a lot of gum today to make sure I don't eat all their free samples.

Please come visit me! I'll be there this morning from 9-12:30-ish, and most of the day tomorrow and Saturday, unless Christy kicks me out. And you know you want to meet the very talented, very funny Marshall Ramsey, who will be signing his book for all who buy it. See y'all there!

(So, 6 days in and I've already broken NaBloPoMo. And I can blog from my phone. Sad. I'll try to do better.)

I never did make it to Mistletoe. I always wanted to go. Hey, while you're handing out those t-shirts can you find out how to make a Huntsville group?? They're not in this area yet. Have fun!!
