Brick O'Cheese and Black Friday

Hello Peeps,

Wanted to share some tidbits from my Thanksgiving/Black Friday fiesta. We had a fab dinner at Cristal and Andrew's house, and stopped by Ben and Tracy's later that night. I really am thankful for the new friends we have made in Tennessee.

Here is a picture of the Brick O' Cheese I made for the dinner:

The year before last, I made the mistake of changing up mac and cheese recipes from my usual Brick O' Cheese. Aron's dad, Grover, made it clear that while the other mac and cheese was OK, he would need the Brick O' Cheese from here on out, lol.

We decided not to partake in the Black Friday madness this year. But when I woke up at 8am, not having punched a lady in the face over a printer, I felt as though something was missing in my life. So I decided to make the pilgrimage to The Walmart to check out their deals...

Hey, I had to bring a touch of glamour to The Walmart, lol! Torrid jacket, old jeans and boots.

I am still on the fence about the jacket; it is one step from a rabbit fur hooker jacket, but I think it works. And if it doesn't, who really cares?
I must say Walmart really had their shit together. I was in and out with my $59 camera in a snap! Now Target was another story.....

Yep, this was the line through the center of the store, just to get to the checkout area! Once you came closer to the registers, they separated the massive line into three little lines, then directed you to which register you should go to. It caused more chaos than it was worth.

So, later yesterday we put up our tree. It is a little Charlie Brownish, but cute. Here is a fuzzy iPhone pic of the tree, and our kitty Z trying contemplating eating the tree skirt.

Well, I have about 50 orders to pack today, yea! The post office is going to love us!

Hi Peeps,
It has been a heck of a week, fun yet exhausting! I hope all my US friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Mine has involved fabulous times with family and friends, and eating plenty of fab food! Nom nom nom.....
Aron and second wedding anniversary was on Monday. We both agreed that the house would be our anniversary present to each other, but that we'd still go out and have a nice dinner. We ended up at the Parthenon Grille, and it rocked.
I also made special cupcakes for Aron :)

I think he liked them :)

I wore my Xhilaration dress and leggings

Well, it has been a long one, so I am signing out. My next blog will be a Turkey Day/Black Friday/Tree Trimming mashup, so stay tuned. Let's just say it will involve faux fur and a Brick O' Cheese. Hugs!

Where have I been?

Hey Peeps,

Yes, it has been forever since I blogged, but things have been busy to say the least.....

Yep, we are homeowners, woo hoooo! I never thought we would have our own little chunk of suburbia. Here are some pics......

Though we still have much to do to the house, it is an amazing feeling to know we have something that is ours.

What else have I been up to? Fashionwise, not too much, lol. I did manage to snap a Fashion Nugget of the Day.

Not one of my finest moments, but things have been hectic. Old sweater, old jeans, insane peacock top from ASOS, and boots by Torrid. Please note the boots were supposed to stop under the knee. But, some of us have duck legs.

Last night we saw Grinderman at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville. Grinderman is Nick Cave's side band, and they put on a hell of a show. Aron commented that it took us moving to Nashville for him to finally see Nick Cave live. Here is a pic from the show...

I love the Grinderman album cover, so we purchased a poster after the show.

I love this wolf, and the wildness of nature still existing in this pristine little world.

Ok, I am off for a walk and to make crock pot chili. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
