happy turkey weekend!

What made my long weekend great?!?!
Good food, great family, quality time with my husband and dogs during our driving time, a little break from work, black friday shopping and this........
Our black Friday gift to ourselves. The newest member of the Simpson household is welcomed with loving arms. Too bad we had no idea how filthy our life had been until this bad boy made an appearance. Hopefully it will help my asthma and allergies and encourage justin to become motivated to vacuum!

Happy holiday cleaning!

New things!

Justin and I have been looking for a chair that we loved for the past 2 months! We looked EVERYWHERE in Memphis and LR. The hardest part was finding something we both agreed on. Finally..... we have a sneak peak of what it will look like. We ordered it, which makes me nervous because we havent seen it in person. OH WELL too late to get worried now. We should get to see our beautiful new chair in 3 weeks.
I also got a little crafty today and made pillows. I got the fabirc at Hobby Lobby and it was 30 % off. Then I had a coupon and got another 40% off. I was thrilled. I now have some fabric left over and I am deciding if I should do anything else with it?!?!

My nephew is turing One!! I can't believe it! I need help. What do you get a one year old for his birthday?? A cardboard box???

Perfect Day-cation!

I got the best birthday present ever! I got a Day of everything I wanted to do... Which started out with a trip to the dog park and to his grandparents for breakfast. Then we spent Hours chair shopping.... (we still have no chair). We arent picky we just cant find anything we love or agree on. Were going shopping all day Saturday in LR until we find one... we shall see.

ANYWHO... Justin got us tickets to the Orpheum in Memphis to see Wicked on Halloween Eve! I was sooo excited. I felt like it was christmas. I am pretty sure at one point he told me he would never take me on a date again if I acted that excited again! We went to eat at The Majestic for dinner thanks to a recommendation from a good friend. It was wonderful. then we walked around downtown Memphis (which we never do). We went to the Peabody and Beale Street.
Wicked was wonderful as I am sure anyone who has seen it will agree. We had wonderful seats on the inside 7th row with no one in front of us. And yes I did cry when it was over!!!! I told him we need to have more Day-Cations that are all about me!!!
