Happy Black Friday! Is anyone going out shopping? I think we are embracing Cyber Monday or Cyber Week around here – along with shopping locally when we can.
I am linking up today with Andrea, etc. right here.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. I will do a full recap in my Hello Monday I think, but for now here are some things that made me happy this week.
Remember when I wrote 3 snail mail letters? I got two letters back! How fun! I am going to try to continue doing this.
Every year I get one peppermint mocha shake from Chick Fil A and I am ready for this year’s soon! Do you like them? I may get one this weekend.
Tom isn’t big on posed pictures or smiling in them. He smiles a lot in real life, though, I promise. My high school bestie who is also a talented photographer captured this one and it came up in my Facebook memories.
Do you like egg nog? I tried this and it is good!
It is static season! I like to keep a small can of this around and it really helps.
I am continuing to enjoy the patio as long as I can. One day this week I had a hot chocolate and read the mail.
I love chai lattes and this local place has the best! Jack got a smoothie.
This is promising news and I have heard that teachers would be in phase two to get vaccinated. Will you get the vaccine as soon as you can?
This was on sale on Amazon for only $18 so I jumped on it.
The results? An 80s mug shot. I need some practice.
We had two ferns that did really well from May-November. Tom planted them in front of our arborvitaes. I hope they stay alive.
I switched out the o.j. for the cider yesterday and it was so good!
And, I said good-bye to the Thanksgiving decor. I will show you my Christmas decor when I finish.
A nearby shopping center is having a European style market that I am going to try to go to today. It is time for me to get my gifts!
What were your favorites this week? I hope you had many!

I love that picture of you and Tom! I can really see your boys in both of you. I also like the hair, those new wand/iron things can be tricky but the waves look great! I am relaxing at home today, hoping to get a few projects done!

Thank you! Yes, they are a good mix. I think maybe if I use that tool and start lower and also use regular curling iron it might look better?
Nice! It feels good to get things done. My energy is high in the morning so that is my best time to tackle them!
The peppermint shake sounds amazing. I had no idea that was a thing.
What a good picture of you and Tom!

It is so good! Does Wells like CFA? I bet Wells would like my fried rice recipe because he seems like a great eater. Thank you!
I think your hair looks great! I really want a waver like that. What a super price you found!
Me and husband actually visited a mall for Black Friday, and found some great things on sale. We also had a nice lunch at our favorite restaurant. The place was almost deserted, but the mall started to fill up after a while, so we left…
My favorite this week is that we have started some light Christmas decoration and I can finally drink my “glögg” (spicy how wine), I LOVE glögg! Another favorite is that my principal informed we that we don’t have to come in for the yearly Christmas party next Saturday… It’s a great happening, but I prefer my Saturday at home! (We were supposed to do a very covid:y “party” of course, no worries!)
I LOVE it that you said you were a A- type! I AM TOO!!!!! I can’t imagine ALWAYS being a Type A in every aspect of my life. My husband is Type B, so that made me become a Type A-!! I think it’s healthier!! haha
Now you make me want to go to Chick Fil A for a peppermint shake! YUM!!! I will do it sometime in December!!! I ate sooo much mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing, I REALLY need to watch the calories in the next few weeks!!
Your hair looks cute with your new Amazon curler!!! I love the waves!
We are in the process of Christmas decor EVERYWHERE in boxes, can’t wait to get it all up and enjoy the twinkle lights, my frasier fir candle AND Christmas music on Spotify!!
haha! I will never be a Type B! Sorry for the bad influence. My grocery also has a peppermint ice cream that is really good! I need some salads in my life STAT! thank you – I need to play around with it more.
I am keeping my decor simple and focusing on my white twinkle lights and candles. I love my Target Christmas plates, too!
What a great pic of you and Tom. I also love the peppermint shake from Chick-fil-a. I need to get one of those soon! You are so funny about your hair 😂 I got Hadley a beach waver (from Walmart) for her birthday. She didn’t ask for it, but I knew she’d love it…& maybe I’d get to use it too 😂 we used it the other day, and her hair looked so cute . I haven’t tried it on my hair yet though.
Thank you! The shake is so good! Ha! I bet it looked cute on her. And, that style is so in with the young girls – the 90s looks.
