It was a glorious Black Friday <3
Everyone enjoyed the day according to their leisure…
I shopped, got in a workout (posted at the end), a long nap and started putting up Christmas decorations
[Glass hurricanes and bowls + different sizes of ornaments = chic, inexpensive holiday decorations]
The Pilot watched football, cleaned the office (painters will be here tomorrow!) and assembled furniture
and Bella ate, napped, and spent the day stinky and naked.
She prefers her neck rubs sans collar, and we (I) keep fighting taking her to the groomer… She looks so defiant and sassy when she’s a little shaggy.
We decided to make her day and take her with us to Lowe’s, where we were greeted by Scary Claus.
For only $129, you can purchase an animated creeper to have in your house or yard.
Eats today included lots of leftovers- my favorite part of the Thanksgiving feast
smothered in Whole Foods mushroom gravy
Quinoa salad on top of greens, with more mashed sweet potatoes
It’s dinnertime over here, and the Pilot just brought the tree in from the garage.
It’s been in storage for two years- I’m excited to see it again
Have a lovely night and I’ll see ya in the morning!
