Weekend Update

The weekend always goes way to fast.
I wish my weekdays went faster and my weekends would slow down.  
Nonetheless, this past weekend was a great one.
We were able to have a very relaxing weekend which we do not get often. Saturday we started some early Christmas shopping! It always feels a lot less overwhelming for me when I spread my shopping up between several paychecks rather then one big spree right before Christmas! Now I am collecting the last of my Black Friday coupons and will be ready for round two of shopping come next week (can't believe next week is already Thanksgiving, crazy!!)
John and I have slowly been looking at houses for the last several months but do not plan on buying until May-July. Well, what started as a wrong turn on our way to our shopping destination - may have ended up being the turn to our new home. Way more to come on that..
With that wrong turn came a lot of deep conversation Saturday night. We went to a local Italian restaraunt and discussed a lot of topics over pizza and wine. The night was wonderful. John and I were on the same page on so many different topics and it felt nice and right.
Sunday was perfectly relaxing! We started our day off with a trip to Costco (typical Sunday activity) and came home turned on some candles and my Scentsy and watched my amazing Costco find -  The Santa Clause!  

Another Costco score ended in total dissapointment. We usually love the Aussie Style Licorice, but the Marionberry flavor was no bueno! Not worth it at all!


  1. You like The Santa Clause too??! I watch that every year...I used to watch it on VHS (bring out the old VCR), just for old time sake until the tape got to worn out. Lol I watch that and Home Alone like it's my job this time of year.

    Stopping by from Sami's blog hop!

  2. Sounds like a lovely weekend! It's always nice to get Christmas shopping done early, I've started too. Good luck with the adventure of find a new house. Pizza and wine sounds like an excellent end to the evening! :)

  3. The Santa Clause is, hands down, my favorite Christmas movie. Final answer.

  4. I just ordered The Santa Claus and got it in the mail this weekend. It's one of my favs! I LOVE Christmas movies!!!

    I also nominated you for this thing going on called the Liebster Award and all the rules and what not are on my blog but it is basically for smaller blogs of 200 followers or less to help find each others blogs. Kind of fun and a great way to meet other bloggers :)
