Busy but fun

So a week ago I told my friend Ashley that life was slowing down, apparently I jinxed myself because it hasn't and it definitely isn't until January. I really should look at it differently and see how blessed we are to have such fun times ahead.

So let's talk about the past week of fun. My friend Melinda celebrated her birthday last Tuesday and invited me to a spa party Tuesday evening. I won't even lie to you guys I wanted to just stay home out of pure laziness BUT I love my friend so I forced myself out the door and would you know I had a great time and ate really unhealthy foods haha Melinda and I have quite opposite schedules so we rarely see each other but always enjoy our time together on the rare occasion we get to hang out.

 The complex she lives in is ridiculously nice. The party was at the club house, SO nice!! The pool looked amazing so hopefully we can have a pool day next summer.

Evidence of the unhealthy foods, chips and dip not pictured.

Wednesday at work we had our Thanksgiving, Kimmy Marie and me with a photobomber.

Hanging with Alayna outside Wednesday night.
 So recently I have noticed our relationship changing and it has been pretty cool. We are closer and there is definitely a friendship along with parent/child relationship we have. I have always noticed she craves a relationship/attention from me which has been cool but it's fun to see it changing.

Saturday morning I was up at 6 to head to the Quoizel warehouse sale with my Aunt Christine. I didn't really know what to expect but I definitely got some nice things. My biggest steal is the light for over our Island, I paid $75 and looked it up online to see the value $839... mind blown. I got a few other things and my aunt got us a really awesome chandelier for our dining room. It was worth waking up a little earlier than normal on a Saturday. Now we just need to get his buddy over to hang them up for us. They HAVE to be up before the holidays.

After I got home we all got ready for the day then headed to get groceries. BIG BIG BIG mistake!! I clearly forgot Thanksgiving was this week until we were in a ridiculously long line to check out at the store. It took us 25 minutes of standing in line to check out. I will never again make that mistake at the Commissary, lesson learned my friends.
The boys got me some flowers, they ventured away while I was standing in line and came back with flowers. Red are from Dave and the pink are from Logan, so sweet! It definitely cheered me up in that moment.

We got home, put away groceries, ate a super quick lunch then headed to Johns Island for a Star Wars party. That will be a completely separate post as I took a million pictures.

Hope yall had a great weekend and are staying warm!
