Weekend Round-Up

I hope everybody had a great weekend. Ours was filled with some warmer weather which is always nice.

On Friday, my mom and I went to a holiday open house at an antique mall. I was hoping to win a door prize gift certificate so I could snag a couple things I had my eye on. I really wanted a cute ceramic Christmas tree, but couldn't justify buying it myself because I thought I didn't have any money to spend. Turns out, I could have bought it after all, but oh well.
It looked a bit like this one. I really want one because I remember my grandma having one when I was a kid. I love vintage/retro Christmas stuff and try to decorate that way.

Saturday, M and I went shopping. I was trying to start Christmas shopping, but didn't find much. It's hard to shop when you don't know what people want yet.  I need to work on my own Christmas list too.

Sunday, we went to Mass in the morning and then had a relaxing afternoon at home. We ended up going over to my mother-in-law's house for dinner. We got pizza from our favorite local pizza place. So yummy!

I didn't get a called for subbing today, which is bad for the budget, but good for my health. I went to bed feeling fine, but woke up with a sore throat, so I think I'm coming down with something. And now that it's storming, I'm thinking it's a good day to stay in my pajamas and rest. Hopefully I'll be feeling better soon.

How was your weekend? Have you started your holiday shopping yet?

  1. We used to have a ceramic tree like that too...I wonder if my mom still has it stashed away somewhere. I LOVED that thing.
