Note: The reason I'm winning is because I set my sights very, very, very low. It's a system that works for me.
First off, Thanksgiving was really nice. We met up with GH's dad's family in Bountiful and because the group was so large they got the church gym for the shindig. All the food was delicious, and there were several Costco pumpkin pies (cue heavenly choirs). The Tiny Dark Lord's paternal heritage came rearing out when all he cared about were the Jello concoctions (known around these parts as "salads"). Except he is totally right about my sister-in-law's raspberry pretzel salad, which is probably sprinkled with crack cocaine it's that addicting.
After the Thanksgiving meal we drove home and took it easy. I may or may not have finished off the slice(s) of pumpkin pie I snuck home with me, and GH and I may or may not have gotten into a fight about who should clean the Gift of Pee left by a very thoughtful Dark Lord on the side of our upholstered living room chair. I stormed off from the argument and got into bed to knit and watch Friday Night Lights on my iPad, and after 15 minutes of Coach and Tami Taylor I felt peaceful and happy again. Such is the power of FNL, friends. Your marriage probably needs it.
Today I got up at the usual time and decided to investigate a few of the Black Friday sales. Speed and a ruthless efficiency were kind of necessary because I had the Dark Lord with me.
Kohls: Snagged one of these for $13 after coupons:
Annnd now I don't even know who I am anymore since GH and I just bought our son athletic equipment for the playing of sport. It's just that TDL was just so excited watching the teenagers play basketball in the church gym while we cleaned up the Thanksgiving meal that we lost our heads. (Does baby like basketball?!? Baby shall HAVE basketball!!! Baby shall have ALL OF TEH THINGZZZ!!!)
Old Navy: grabbed these for $19 each, because I'm down to my last pair of jeans without a hole in the right knee. Do not ask me how I manage to do this.
|Old Navy "Flirt" skinny jeans|
|Old Navy "Sweetheart" boot cut jeans, with model whose behind |
looks less good in these jeans than mine does. Just sayin'.
One thing I am grateful for this Thanksgiving is that my body is just the right weird to look super good in $19 Old Navy jeans. To all my friends who have to buy $60 jeans to avoid being an extra in this commercial . . .
. . . I am sorry and please do not send me a bomb in the mail.
Home Depot: $1.50 extension cord to power the Christmas lights I've strung around my porch, and foam tubing ($1.22) to turn into wreath forms so I can make this:
And since it seems that the Tiny Dark Lord is, in fact, refusing to take a nap today (this is not a Black Friday win) I'd better end now and get up and do things.
Does anyone else having anything they'd like to brag about? (Awesome thanksgiving, Christmas shopping scores, having a great butt, etc.)
