Deck the halls

The other day I received a Big Lots ad.  I normally trash them straight away but the subject caught my eye.  Christmas stuff was on sale.  I’m looking for a new tree so I decided to check out the ad.  While I didn’t see any trees I felt would work, I did see a pair… Read More Deck the halls

Holiday Humbug?

I feel like Thanksgiving was super early this year and I’m having problems getting into the Christmas spirit. Last Friday Mom and I braved the crowds, at lunch, to do a little Black Friday shopping. We found a few items and I bought a few more gifts for Matt. When we finally got home, I… Read More Holiday Humbug?

Everything went fairly well… Read More Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy New Year!

Matt and I talked about going to the Chick fil-a Bowl for New Year’s Eve to watch the Auburn v. Virginia game but a few weeks ago at the ornament exchange the girls were talking about doing something low-key.  Since the bowl game hadn’t really been discussed further I decided to offer up our house.… Read More Happy New Year!
