Busy Busy Busy...

Today is my day to catch up from the long weekend~ I had a wonderful weekend. Saturday I cooked a BIG thanksgiving dinner. Yes, I now its only September. I made Turkey,corn, stuffing,mashed potatoes, green beans,the works. My kids were asking where the mac and cheese was? I normally make it for Novembers Thanksgiving. A total day of comfort food!

Yesterday was church and some shopping. My Dear Husband went to early church, then to the lake to pull his boat out of the water for the winter. He took the oldest 3 kiddos with him. I took the younger 3 kiddos with me for the day.
After church I bought a huge rug for the living room, usually $250.00 on sale for $99.00. It is really nice. I also bought a cubby style shelf for all the book ect. Now I don't have to clutter the living room with 3 full laundry basket full of books. I think I will get another one of the cubby shelf's( you can stack them). I got mine at Target for about $45.00 they are made by Closet Maid. The baskets were $5.99 each and came in many colors. The shelf can in about 5 colors.

OH at Costco right now they have these huge dog pillows for $16.00 They are BIG and to nice for the dog ( I bought 2). I will use them on the floor for our reading corner. I will try to post some pictures of all my stuff later today.

Now I'm off to do 6 loads of laundry and 2 loads of dishes see ya later.


  1. Oooo me and my hubby love Costco! He applied for a job there 2 weeks ago but I guess didn't get it as they haven't called or e-mailed him. :-(
    When we were there 2 weeks ago, they have started getting their Christmas stuff out. I was floored at the I think 250 or 400 sheets of white tissue paper for only $5! I can't wait to see what else they have once they get rid of all the Halloween junk. :)
    I like sifting through the cookbooks and hubby has found some great clothing there as well.

    In out home, we have a lot of those white stackable shelves. Some we bought at Wally World and some at Target.
    They do work well, those storage things. :)

    I hope you have a safe and happy week!
    God be with you!
