Happy getting prepared day.

If you’re like me, the day before Thanksgiving is a busy time.  You’ve got to make sure you have all the things you need to cook a wonderful dinner and you’ve got to be super prepared for Black Friday!  In other words, this post will be short because momma likes to shop, and eat too.

First things first, I have a discount that I promised you and it’s pretty nice.  Check out this Black Friday special from Mizuno which is good all week long!

See, I told you I  had an awesome discount for you, 25% off and FREE shipping is a no brainer.  (Please note that there are some exclusions.)  Visit the site by clicking on the link and go ahead and knock some people off your Christmas list!

I’m sure that by now y’all have seen the video of the woman in Australia who realized there was a huge ass spider in her car and then she filmed it and continued to drive 20 minutes to her home!  You haven’t seen it?  Well, here is the news report:

 

Let me just state for the record that I would NOT have driven home with that monster spider in my car. Hell to the no!

And if you have any doubts as to what would have happened if I saw ANY spider in my car, let me show you.

Totally accurate.

We’ve had a bit of cooler weather around here and my dogs have turned into the most cuddly creatures on Earth.

Boomer’s all like, ‘please remove this peasant from my belly.’

Happy Thanksgiving y’all!

Are you cooking or going to someone else’s house to eat?

Will you be shopping on Thursday or do you wait til Black Friday?

I don’t like to move it, move it.

Don’t you hate those people who get all excited on Monday mornings.  You know the type, they’re all like ‘good morning sunshine’ and I’m like,

shut your mouth

And especially when I’m tired or exhausted which is a much more accurate description after the week and the weekend that we just had.  I mean closing on two houses in one day is crazy but moving from one into the other in less than 3 days is just, dare I say, stupid?

moving

This is how MacGyver would’ve liked to move but I had to squash that shit right there.

Clearly MacGyver and I are NOT real men.  It took us about 14 trips with a huge car hauler.  Did I mention that this is a vacation house?  Yeah, we are obviously hoarders and we have a shit ton of pure crap, but we got it moved.

We managed to walk the dogs every day during the move as to try and keep their lives as normal as possible.  On one of those mornings MacGyver almost stepped on something and that something is now a new member of the family.  Let me introduce you to Squishy Toots.

Cute isn’t he?  He was pretty chill during the moving too but then how excited do turtles actually ever get?

So, we got everything in the new house on Friday afternoon and then we spent most of Saturday and Sunday cleaning the new house and moving boxes and furniture into our rooms.  We don’t have everything moved in but I did manage to finish, (or semi finish) setting up a few rooms and here they are.

We still need to paint and hang our pictures and fine tune but since we spend our weekends there, I had to go ahead and set up some things.  I don’t mind.  I get weirdly excited about decorating.  Weirdly.  Maybe obsessed is the right word but hey, who’s to say that’s a bad thing?  Not me!

The new house is not far from the old one but the water is way better.  The fishing is going to be awesome.  In case you’re wondering how I know, MacGyver threw one crab trap in the water just after we closed on Friday afternoon.  Saturday morning, he pulled up four of these guys.

Blue Crabs in the pot!

We got home last night just in time for The Walking Dead which I personally thought was dismal at best.  Not one of my favorite episodes ever and actually the Talking Dead which aired afterwards was more exciting in my opinion.  Let’s hope it gets better because I can’t stop watching.  Why? Ummmm, Daryl!

This morning, we’re over here just trying to get back to normal, which means, I’ve got some new shoes to try out and I’m going for a run.

Have a fantastic Monday, and tell me what you did this weekend.

Do you like moving?  How about decorating?

Wait, what? It’s Friday already?

Holy Crap y’all, this week just flew by, didn’t it?  I usually love it when that happens except it never does when it’s a regular work week.  It only happens when I’m having a birthday and family is in town.  Am I right?

yup

Anywho, guess what?  I got the bike!  And. She’s a beauty!

And yes, I’m wearing my new Harry Potter t-shirt!

We opened our presents late on Wednesday night so I didn’t get to ride her until Thursday morning and oh my Lord, the difference between my old bike and my new one is like the difference between a Ford and a Mercedes.  VAST.

Specialized Bike

I wanted to go for a ride this morning but I didn’t have time.  I have an appointment with a client which requires leaving the house and so I’m forced to take a shower and put on some actual clothing other than my workout clothes.

I meant to update yesterday but honestly, I had a fun hangover.  We went to the mall and first we went to all the stores that give out free shit on your birthday.

disney buttons

Gotta love the Disney store!

And then, my sister-in-law and I went to this new store, ‘the winey wench’ to do some adulting.

wine slushee

Yes, that’s right, we walked around the mall drinking wine slushee’s!  How cool is that?  And while we were doing the wine slushee thing, thing 1 and thing 2 got pedicures from sucker fish.  No, I’m not kidding.

The sads just hit me because they’re leaving today, but every year my birthday is better and better because I get to share it with my nephew and family.

What are you doing this weekend?

Have you had a fish pedicure?  Ever heard of it?
