Mannheim Steamroller here I come!

Good Morning Peeps~
Today is a fine day for this gal...A friend and I are going to go Christmas shopping in Kearney Ne. today and then at 4 pm we are attending the Mannheim Steamroller concert.  Now I don't know about you but this is exactly what I need to get me into the Christmas Spirit.  I love their music!  18 years ago my husband (boyfriend at the time) went to see them in Omaha on New Year's Eve...they was fabulous then and continue to bring the warm holiday feeling into our home.  I intend to do a pre holiday giveaway starting next week...I am not sure all what I will provide, but it will be good.
Hope you all have a great weekend...
Blessings~
