Hey there, friends! How was everyone’s weekend? I’m feeling super rejuvenated after having the last 5 days off from work. I’m a bit sick of eating leftover ham/turkey sandwiches, but other than that things are great.
Friday started out early when I woke up at 6:30 without my alarm. I took advantage of the time to do some Black Friday shopping. Living across from the outlets, I saw the craziness from the night before- dozens of police cars directing people, parking lots packed, lines out the door of the Coach store, you name it. I am not down for that kind of shopping, so I went when I knew no one would be there.
Remember when 6 AM was when the crazies went out shopping? Well, now it’s a ghost town that time of day, so I took full advantage and hit up several stores for some good deals on candles, clothes, and shoes. I also hit up Target and TJ Maxx and found some great deals there. I finished up around 10:30, just when everyone else was coming out to shop.
The rest of the day was spent cleaning, organizing, and getting out the Christmas decorations. I put together our tree and mantle and I’m in love with the color scheme!
I also put together my dining room table to match.
I’ll do the outside stuff this weekend, but it felt great to get it all taken care of! Bella found my cozy Christmas blanket and decided it was now hers to keep.
I put it away every day and she drags it out onto the floor to lay on it. Right next to her dog bed…..
The cats are also in love with the tree. So far I’ve only lost one ornament and they spend every evening laying under the lights together.
Aside from the shopping, decorating, and house stuff, I also got outside a lot with Bella.
She LOVES this weather and wanted to go out every day with me. I spent some time at the gym and went to a hot yoga class as well, so it was a pretty active break for me. Since it was vacation, though, I made sure to do plenty of lounging around in my PJs.
I bought flannel PJs from Target and Riley made fun of me. I don’t even care, though, because they’re the most comfy pajamas I own now! Did any of you watch Gilmore Girls this weekend? I breezed through the whole thing and really liked it for the most part! We won’t talk about the ending, in case you haven’t seen it yet, but you should really get on that.
Have a great Monday!
