I'm a wife, mom, with a full time job. I love to cook, write and photography. These are my pasions in life. With a full time job my passions tend to get put on the back burner, but I am trying to change that. I wanted to start a blog so I can bring out all of my passions in one place.

A Quote for Friday

Shopping for the Holiday

My husband and I did some shopping and looking through stores on Black Friday. I know our children are young adults, and dontbut we did not see anything on Black Friday’s sales that would make us go “but it now”. Another thing the stores were not full. I thought on Black Friday these stores would be jammed packed and there would be fighting going on, oh no not even close. The stores barely had anyone in them, and the news people try to say that it’s because more people shop online. That could be the case, but I doubt it. There are lots of people that shop online, but all of them? I think that less and less people are just not shopping due to lack of money. I know my husband and I put ourselves on a budget for Christmas, so maybe that is what the majority of shoppers are doing as well.
We’ve been watching the sales both in store and online. We did find some good deals online at Walmart for a few gifts our children wanted. We actually saved some money on them which is always what we try to do. We were able to get about 70 percent of our shopping done that Black Friday weekend. Of course I forgot to mention about the rude ass people that was out shopping. Like OMG can they be any more ignorant. Is it that hard to say excuse me, or sorry to bumping into you? I can go on and on about this so I won’t.
How is your Christmas shopping coming along?

Christmas Decorations

We got all of the fall decorations down now, and now beginning to get the Christmas decorations up.  There is still more to put up, but this is a good start for now.

The two glass vases I had made.  Second DIY project I did, and I am really starting to like this crafting thing.

Husband Project

My husband has been wanting a fish tank for some time now, and well he finally got it.  It took him a couple of hours to get it all completed but it is done.  Its a 65 gallon tank with a huge pump and filter system like OMG why so big.  I guess its a man thing huh.  He will be getting tropical fish for the tank probably next week so excited for them to come.  It is a gorgeous tank I do say so.

Planner Spread

These weeks are going by so fast.  We are already moving to December and soon Christmas will be here.  Where is the time going?

This is my layout for this week, as well as the December monthly.  The weekly spread I used a shop from Easy #Cricket Paper Co.  I love this shop, the stickers are the perfect size for my happy planner.
