I miss you dearest blog...

I'm not going to start this post about my bad blogging habits, but leave you with a tidbit... it will get better soon. In a few days. Promise :-)

I hope that everyone had a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving. We spent the holiday with good friends and deep fried turkey. I'm still full.

Today, we had a few things to grab. Ventured out on Black Friday. I was saddened to see how empty the parking lots were. A true sign of an economic downturn. Nothing serious for us to buy though. More hangars from Steve & Barry's. They are going out of business and selling unused, still packed in boxes, beautiful wood hangers... for $21.98 for 100. We bought 600. We have a lot of clothes.

We bought so many hangers because Chris started my closet! It's ringing in at 150 square feet of beautiful delicious space. We bought WHITE hardwood floors for it today. The cabinets will be black. I'm trying to convince him to break a hole into the newly nailed drywall for a chandelier, but I don't think he's having it. Dad-In-Law was out for a week and they got so many things done! The chandelier in the living room is a fully functioning piece of amazingness. In other news, my house and husband are covered in dust. Constantly.


On a routine trip to the Empire Center today, we may have accidentally purchased a washer & dryer. See, my husband is a slight dumpster diver. When we moved from the condo, we rented a U-Haul. There was a stacked washer & dryer in the trash room. Chris FORCED me to move the broken/trashy/ickygross washer/dryer unit from the trash into our U-Haul and into our garage. I prayed the entire time that no one would see me hauling trash. Well, Dad-In-Law made it work! So we've been using it for a bit knowing that we would move it to the guest house when the renter moved in (he moves in on Dec 1...wheeee!) So, we thought we'd run through Best Buy, knowing that we should buy something. Soon. Turns out the most beautiful pieces were right there waiting for us. At 50% off.




















Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and a fruitful Black Friday :-)

I tried Empire center today and it was packed!!! I gave up and went back later in the day and it was still busy but I managed to get a spot and a faux tree. Beautiful washer/dryers btw!
