My days are confused. I keep thinking today is Sunday and our weekend is coming to an end.

Yesterday, we shopped ‘til we dropped, ate leftovers, and went to bed at 9:30.

Today, we slept in, ate breakfast, drank coffee, and went out to see the horses before coming back and settling in for some football.

Right now, everyone is napping on the couch – the dogs included.

I got some great deals on things for our new house yesterday! Shopping for house items is so exciting to me – I am psyched to move in and start putting our stuff in the house and decorating. I bought a new quilt for a guest room, some sheets on super-sale, kitchen towels, pillows, and got a few things for our first ever guest bathroom.

Is it weird that I’m so excited about a second bathroom? Because I am.

Also, this was the first time EVER that I have gone shopping on Black Friday and not bought any clothing for myself. I’m pretty proud of that, because I did get side tracked by a jacket at Kohls, but I kept walking to the bedding section.

A few fun recipes are coming soon (we’ll be morphing one dessert into a brand new one later day – I’m excited about that), and a very special post will be here tomorrow.

Hope you’re enjoying your holiday weekend ; )

I’m off to get a little nap in, watch a lot more football, and eat some chili.

I am happy.

I love November.

    Ever since we bought our house last year I find myself buying “house stuff” way more than clothes/shoes… which I NEVER thought would happen haha! It’s so fun though! :) So glad you are having a nice holiday weekend.

    Yay for move in day! I can remember how excited I was when I first moved into my first condo. I’m looking forward to buying again but I will say that nothng is as fun as moving into your first place. There is just something special about it that can never be replicated.

    Shopping for house stuff is so much fun! I loved the excitement when we purchased our home filling it up.
