Making Mondays a little brighter

Monday, October 20, 2014

Ahh Monday, the best day of the week . . . said no one ever. I'm still over here living out of boxes and day dreaming of home decor as my car gets filled with more and more bags of new home items. I figure it's far easier to continue to pile all my new house purchases in the back of my car, less trips back and forth and when the clouds part and we're finally given the keys all those shiny new (or antique) items will be ready to find there perfect place in our new home!

This weekend was fairly uneventful and included shopping, family time, and a bit of packing. Friday night I stayed at my parents . . . any vacation away from the roommates is a welcomed one, and since my mom has been out of town for the last couple weeks I enjoyed some mother-daughter time. Catching up on episodes of Chicago Fire & Greys and some girl talk over wine made for a pretty perfect Friday night. Saturday included a visit to our new house, some home shopping and of course an evening watching the Oregon Duck game. And we ended our weekend on Sunday with a trip to the grand opening of the new HomeGoods in town, some sightseeing around Portland, helping my mother in-law pack some more and a nice relaxing evening with Dan. All and all a good weekend, and as always never long enough!

I'm truly lucky that he lets me drag him around to things such as a HomeGoods grand opening early on a Sunday morning! Thankfully I perked him up with some Starbucks first! 

And since I definitely need to slow down on my shopping habit, one for the sake of my bank account and the other because I'm running out of room in the back of my car, I have an awesome giveaway for all of you!
