Every day I keep thinking I am going to blog, but between work, not sleeping from all DH's snoring this week, and just flat out being tired I have managed none.  I find it another Sunday and I am just NOW posting for the week.  It's ok, I'm living a pretty boring life at the moment so there isn't much to tell that would be funny or of interest to you.

I can honestly say that while looking out at work this week seeing this coming down 
That the Kentucky Snow Princess has seen enough, and I am ready for it to go!!  I mean either drop the mother load on us and quit this 4" here and 4" there.  I want a big one so we can be done with Old Man Winter.  So needless to say I have been happy to see the sun the last 3 days. 

Yesterday I took my lovely Momma to breakfast at Cracker Barrel.  I had been craving some of their pancakes with cherries and whip cream.  YUM.  After that we went to Cato's, Two Sisters, and Rudy's something or another, lol.  Anyways, I found this lovely comforter, shams, and bedskirt from JC Penney for $25.  Brand new, still in the bag.  Oh yeah, my Momma does good!!

(I know, doesn't it just set that beautiful wallpaper off???)

On our way home we stopped at another JC Penney outlet type store Granny Sales and I purchased these two lovely black leather chairs for a grand total of $43. 


I know, they don't really match anything I have, or anything I plan to decorate with BUT, I LOVE them. 
And they sit really really good, considering they look like they won't. 

Today after Church the family was over for lunch. 
Baked Spaghetti, tossed salad, french bread along with butter pecan cake and lemon cake.
What can I say, Momma and I got cake crazy. 
I had enough left over to take to the couple next door.
Now as I am blogging, DH is lovingly putting up my newest light fixtures.
3 more to go that we have ready. 

We also have a contractor coming in to start our new guest bath this week.
Here is the before picture.

Ok, now to get caught up on my blog reading! 
Everyone have a great week!!

This winter has been brutal! Even AZ is getting hit hard with the cold weather. It's ruining all my landscaping!

Love it when I find a bargain.
