Hey there y'all.

Happy late Thanksgiving. I hope you and yours had a great one and you didn't eat so much you were uncomfortable after the meal.

Anyone else spend the day on the couch watching football like I did? Yep, in comfy clothes I watched the Cowboys and the Longhorns whoop it up and down the field. Surprisingly it was harder for me to watch the Seahawks get pounded on than I thought it would be. At the end of the day, I remain true to my roots and am a Cowboy fan but it was hard to see my new home team players lose.

I still have not found my black glasses but honestly I have not put forth much of an effort to find them either. If they are with Kimmy's sunglasses, we just might be in trouble. Washington and Ohio aren't close and if they wanted to par-tay together, I know I'd let them use my space to do so. No need to run off and hide from their mommas.

I decided to purchase flameless candles for the fireplace earlier this week. I may look into buying stock in Energizer. Each candle takes two AA batteries which means to make my fireplace look the way I want, I'm using 10 batteries at all times. Y'all let me know when the dollar spot at Target has them in the bin so I can stock up a'right?

I was hesitant at purchasing them as you know I have mad love for candles but I was drawn to them after the last windstorm kept blowing the candles out in the fireplace. I give them 4 and a quarter stars. The only reason they don't get 5 is because they are not real candles. The upside is they will never lose their shape and the flicker will be continuous.

Later this week I will update you on dinner with the crew (two nights out, one night in), Mel's birthday celebration, and the Real Housewives viewing party.

For now I need to get ready to brave the elements and crowds. Mars decided she wants to go shopping for sweaters and shoes on Black Friday. I don't do Black Friday as a general rule but when you mention time with one of your besties and shoe shopping, that's worth getting out in it. I may regret this decision later but for now this is my mindset.

Peace and Love Peeps.

You are brave for shopping today! If someone could have guaranteed me a parking spot, I might have considered it.

Take a picture of your fireplace and candles! Inquiring minds want to see it!

Sounds like you'll need to invest in rechargeable batteries. I love the look of candles in the fireplace.

And you know I wasn't on the couch watching football :)

Mo said...

We lucked out with some sweet parking spaces!

Will do later this week.

Oooh rechargeable may be the way to go. Thanks for the hint.

I spent my boob-tube time with Bette & Joan, Jay kept me up on the Seahag's pounding.

My glasses like to get out on their own frequently. They must fall in love a lot 'cuz they rarely come back home.

Hope your Black Friday wasn't too dark & grim :) I don't do it either but yeah, for time with a best friend, I would too.
