I'm happy to say that Sara and I are headed to New Orleans this weekend for a girls getaway!
I am just beyond pumped about this. We've already booked out hotel (pet-friendly of course) decided what tours we will be taking (Haunted History and a walking tour of the Garden District) and have been checking out restaurants to see where we want to dine. A stop by Oak Alley Plantation is in the works too so I can get some pics of it.
I was afraid Sean would be a little hesitant for me to go since he wanted us to clean up the house this weekend in preparation for Thanksgiving Day, but I told him I'd do as much as I could tonight and tomorrow so I wouldn't have to worry about cleaning once I got back.
In other news I did a small order from Forever 21 yesterday.
I got this dress I've talked about before:
This adorable long-sleeved shirt:
And a basic, plain white long sleeved shirt. Which is an essential in my book.
I still am really lacking in winter clothes, but I hope to build what I have a little at a time.
I'm so ready for the start of the holidays! Hard to believe that in a week it will be Thanksgiving! I started making my list of what ingredients I need and I think I have it almost completed.
There's actually already a station here that's playing Christmas music. I caught an Elvis tune on there the other morning when I was taking Sean to work. The other morning he had to be at work at 4:00 a.m. and let me tell you, that's when they play all the good music! I heard some Doors and Human League in the 20 minutes it took me to take him to work and drive back home. Why is the reserve the crappy songs for the daytime hours? Riddle me that one people!
Anyone watch the America's Next Top Model finale last night? I wasn't suprised that McKey won, but I wasn't that happy about it either. The whole finale just seemed kind of ho-hum to me. I hope next season is better!
Oh..and before I forget, funny story. Somehow Boomer got into Sean's rucksack yesterday, pulled out an MRE, opened it and enjoyed a 600 calorie Veggie Burger, complete with BBQ stains on my comforter and sheets. Oh..and somehow he managed to cover up the stains on the sheets with the comforter. Crafty little Min-Pin isn't he?
Enjoy the rest of your Thursday everyone!
