The Monday Mess

IMG_3770.PNG

Y'all, maybe it's just because it's the Monday after a holiday, but I think I'm still in a turkey coma right now! We arrived back home last night after spending Thanksgiving weekend with the Bulloss clan. I'm telling you, it's pretty hard to motivate after such a relaxing weekend with family. A couple things I learned this weekend:

  • Having three women (who do not have children) shop for baby outfits on Black Friday is practically a scene out of a sitcom. Recah, Diana, and I all were shopping for baby outfits for friends of ours and probably oogled at Every. Single. Item. With all our loud "Awww!"s and "Oh my goodness, look at these little shoes!"s and shouts "Look at this!"s we even started to get looks... and let me tell you that did not deter us one bit. After every time of clothing was picked up and had it's own "Aww," Baby Gap had a good profit that day!

  • Four pups can make for a happy home. We all rescued pups, some with odd or rough histories, and they were taking time to warm up to one another. In previous visits with the whole clan & pups, there have been loud barks and running around. BUT this weekend they all had a wait-did-we-just-become-best-friends moment and pretty much had vigorously wagging tails the WHOLE weekend! I even caught them snuggling together several times! It warmed all of our hearts to see the fur-babbies getting along so well!

  • Ikea sells LIVE succulents!! Ok, I know I already posted about this on Instagram, but succulents are awesome! Ikea, you sneaky store, you found a way to make me love you even more! ...Wow, that rhymed. :)

Enjoy a few more fun favorites from this weekend! What did you all learn/do this Thanksgiving?!

Before the meal started, the Bulloss men got together and made deer-jerkey! Yum...
