Friday night I took my car in (Herbie) to have a new tire put on (I had a flat probably 2 months ago and I have been driving around on the full spare - typical female - i know i know!) and I also got new tail and headlights. One of my "secret/silent" new years resolutions for 2010 is to take better care of my car, my parents gave both my sister and I a nice car for our graduation gift from college, and I need to take better care of my car and treat it with respect (including car washes!). My dad sure does appreciate when I come by their house and my car is washed!
Saturday morning was a morning I was dreading, I promised JM that I would take down the Christmas decorations (they have only been up since early November! and were having a few people over to watch the Superbowl and it would be pretty embarrasing to still have my tree up in February!). Taking down of the Christmas decorations turned into cleaning and organizing a lot... here are some of the pictures to prove it! My Christmas decorations have been up for so long I can't remember what my mantle looked like prior to the holidays - whoops!
When we were able to see the floor of the family room, JM suggested that we run to the mall to get out of the house and get a few things that he needed, and when walking through Macy's I spotted this coat - that I thought I might as well try on... nothing that I needed but if the price was right it might be worth it???
So when I tried it on, and the sleeves were perfect length, and it fit well everywhere else, I looked at the price tag.... $89.99 (eek), I looked up at the sale tag on top of the rack, marked down to $31.99... my eyes light up, then I realized that I had a $25 gift card to Macy's in my purse I realized that I would be paying very much for it... So i pretty much got this cute winter jacket for only $7.99! So it was totally worth leaving my productive day of organizing to find the deal of the month!
We came home from Easton and relaxed at watched the X Games (I really wish these were on ALL the time!) I enjoy watching what the skiiers and snowboarders are able to do - and what they have the courage to do! It is rediculous!
This morning we went to church, ran a few more errands. I found this scarf at world market and JM bought it for me... I love grey and scarves.. It was more of a must have than a want - ha!
When we got home from running errands I got busy in the kitchen make all sorts of things.... I think today gave me enough to post for entire week of make me a meal WEEK...
Multigrain Blueberry Pancakes (I cheated here and used Hodgen Mill mix)
Stuffed Pablano Peppers
Pineapple Cake (Trust me there is nothing but deliciousness below the cool whip topping!)
