This weekend was a beautiful one with beautiful weather and LOTS of relaxing time! Mike really needed the relaxing time, he had a really tough past 2 weeks at work and I was more than happy to just chill with him. Sometimes I can get crabby with sitting around since I am always used to doing something, but I love that man and damn he needed rest. I actually didn’t mind it, we were even too lazy to do dinner out so we did take out one night!
Oh and we did run to Target on Saturday, Mike said it was a must! Mike wanted to get our tree so we would have it all ready to be put up on Black Friday, a tradition we have! We don’t shop on black Friday, we decorate our tree and decorate our house for christmas! Anthony and I had this tradition when it was just us, so all of us as a family started it together when we had our first christmas with Mike!
So my Marvelous in my Monday recap does have some CHRISTMAS ready cheer!
Target had the tree we wanted and it was on sale! They only had two left, we are so happy we got it in time!
We got lights for the tree and for outside as well! I am excited to really decorate for christmas this year! Oh and we may have competition NOW from our neighbors, YUP! Mike was carrying the christmas tree in the house yesterday and the neighbor stopped him and asked if we were really going all out decorating for christmas. Mike told the neighbor we are decorating a little but not going National Lampoon Christmas Vacation style, haha!
The neighbor said they were not going all out either, YET today guess what we see?
The neighbors outside going ALL out with christmas decor in the yard! Oh it is SO on now!! Haha! I was spying and told Mike all the deets and how they decorated their lamp post the way I was going to do mine! Lol! We are crazy!
We are going to decorate WAY more than originally planned now, we kind of need to step it up! I think our neighbors were scared of us decorating over the top so they decided too, guess it’s on now!
All in fun, but it is funny!
Ok SO our tree decor colors are going to be simple but pretty, we picked these bulbs out!
Oh and you might spy a christmas HK tee too, it was too cute to pass up! I usually am not big on wearing HK too much, but the shirt says something cute! I am going to wear it christmas morning!
I got some other ornaments to put on the tree besides the bulbs too, staying with the same color scheme as well!
Child abuse on the way home happened, Anthony was smashed in the back by the tree box! We desperately need a SUV one day, we both have clown cars!
Other christmas stuff….
We got one of our favorite christmas movies that we thought we owned and found out a couple weeks ago we didn’t! We made sure to get it and to add it to our christmas movie collection! The Grinch!
Holiday trail mixes from Planters, these are SOOOOOOOO good!
Mike and I had to crack them open last night and I am so shocked we had self control and did not demolish them!
The vanilla coated almonds in the almond chocolate crunch are to die for!
Mike is the reason we got both flavors, he could not decide between the two and made the executive decision to get both! Good choice though, both so damn good!
DINNER on Saturday night was amazing and to go! Like I said earlier, we were being too chill and lazy to actually go out to eat
Chipotle! I was wanting a burrito bowl and for the first time in 7 YEARS, I had steak! Yes, crazy I know! I seriously have been listening to my body and I know that my body needs some red meat, I feel I don’t get enough iron and red meat here and there is not bad for you!
Eat what you crave!
Steak burrito bowl, it was SO good!
Anthony got steak tacos!
Mike got a HUGE burrito with pork!
Oh chipotle, we love you! I think chipotle is going to be a weekly thing around here, just can’t get enough!
The rest of Saturday night, well the trail mix domination happened…..
Sunday was spent relaxing and taking a nice 30 minute walk while talking on my phone to catch up with my family. I like to make calls during my walks, it’s time that I can call my sisters and say hi or my mom. Interrupted time!
Reading the Sunday newspaper ( my favorite )
Sunday also means face mask Sunday! I like to do mask twice a week and Sunday is one of those days
And I watched all the beautiful stars dressed up on the red carpet for the AMA’s last night. I loved Carrie Underwood’s dress, so beautiful!
