To say: WAAARRRR EEEEEAAAAGGGLLEEE!!!! Hey!
Who Let The Dogs Out? Ruf! Ruf!! Go! Dogs! Go!
Althought I'm a little disappointed in how the Tigers originally presented themselves at the start of Friday's game, they did pull it off!
For some reason, blogger is not letting me upload anymore pictures to this post right now. So, for now, AGAIN, you get a sneak peak at our Christmas tree now that it is finished!!
Anyway, we have had a great Thanksgiving week and it is (fastly) coming to a close. We went shopping with Kylie and Mason on Monday. On Tuesday, we spent most of the day in since it was raining, working on the tree. I went that night and got my hair done. That would be the hair trip in which I walked away looking like I had never looked before. If you see me, please don't comment, I didn't mean for it to look this way, but in light of the impending long weekend holiday that was starting the next day, my hair dresser couldn't get me back in to fix it before she was closed for 4 straight days. So I'll go back to school looking like this, and then from there will probably forget that Sid called me a zebra and I called myself a skunk and my mom said it "yeah, it's just different". Maggie and Dad said they liked it. Ok, I've now dwelled for 3 mintues longer than I ever expected to over my hair.
On to bigger things... Wednesday we did laundry and packed a few things and headed out that afternoon to Alabama. We spent the night at Mimi an Poppy T's and had Thanksgiving with the fam on Thursday. Here who was present: Me, Sid, Bailey, Maggie, Bo, Will, Chris, Erica, Erin, Andrew, Mom, Dad and Papppaw and Macy. It was perfect, as it always is when Mom's in charge. We had a great 24 hour trip and headed home late Thursday afternoon.
Friday, Sid went to work, only to return about 2 hours later with permission from his boss to go home. They didn't have any funerals, so we sent Bailey on with Mammaw and Pappaw to see Big Mammaw and we headed out to do some late Black Friday shopping. Let me stop here and tell you that I physically made myself sick ver the $198 laptop that WalMart had on sale from 5-10 Friday morning. I knew there would be no way I could go get it with Sid having to go to work at 7 and everyone else had better things to do besides stand in line for 8 hours for me. (how dare them! Hahah! NO, really I totally understand that!) And I went to bed feeling bad that he wanted it and I couldn't get it. I'll tell you more how that story ended in a minute, but for now I just want to tell you that Kylie and Ben were there for 8 hours just to get one $90 thing. It is not understatement when I say that I dread the day Bailey asks for something that WalMart will only have 4 of during the middle of some random night.
Ok, back to the weekend: We headed to Jackson about noon on Friday, and actually had a great time. We didn't go in too many stores, but were able to find just about everything I would have wanted for Bailey had I been there at 4 when their doors opened. Target is my kind of store though. They had a 3 day sale before Thanksgiving and then had a 2 day sale after Thanksgiving and granted, it's while supplies last only, but at least they don't want some random housewives getting arrested in their store at 2 a.m. over some $1.98 towels that they will have on sale for approx. 33 seconds. Or as Maggie says, 40 women standing in line and only 20 sets of sheets to be had. No lie ya'll, in Jackson, two women were arrested fighting over the towels.
Anyway, after some alone time shopping, we made our way to big Mammaw's house and visited and rounded up everyone and went to the mall close to her house so I could do some shopping their and hopefully Bailey would see Santa. Maybe when she's 12 we'll have hope of seeing Santa, but not this year. She did blow him a kiss and wave, all the while crying with her eyes closed tightly so she couldn't see how close we were standing. haha! She doesn't even want to talk about it now that we are home!
Sid worked today and we've just hung around the house. He did go hunting for a little bit while Bailey went to see Mammaw and Pappaw again. But nothing major. Tomorrow we'll go to church, I'll hit the lesson plans hard and we'll get back in the swing of things for Monday.
Only 3 more weeks until Christmas Break and I ...cannot....wait!!! Maybe tomorrow, I can upload the pictures of my tree since I've teased you all twice now!!!!
