Seven Quick Takes

Happy Friday, y’all. I wish we could have a do-over on this week because it was most definitely not my favorite. Let’s see if we can make Friday good enough to make up for the rest of the week.

We watched two episodes of RugratsĀ on Netflix last night. Man I loved that showed. In fact, I was Lil for Halloween one year with a bunch of my friends. It’s kind of funny to watch it now and see how awful the graphics are. I still love Chucky.

I made my Christmas card last night and, boy howdy, it’s a cute one!! I’ll show you once I send them out.

Yesterday I ate half a bowl of soup, a cupcake, and half a baked potato. I know it doesn’t sound like much but it’s a vast improvement from my appetite before that. I never thought I could ever be the type of person who just wasn’t hungry. That’s not me, that’s famous people and grandmas. I’m always hungry. ALWAYS. So it’s kind of weird to try to make myself eat.

I bought the Gap Groupon a while back and it expires today. So being SO INCREDIBLY ON TOP OF THINGS, I went shopping last night. I bought this dress:

Cute, huh? I like how the waist is fitted but its a bit higher so it hides my post-baby pooch. Anyways, I need to get the armholes taken in a bit because it offers a bit of a peep show as it is.

I’m I only on number 5?

I just realized this weekend is the weekend before Thanksgiving. Wow, that snuck up on me! Which means I need to make my grocery list, buy my turkey and other fixins, and start thinking about drying out some bread for my stuffing. I need to make a pie. Not because our family has asked me to, but because I feel it deep in my soul. I NEED to make a pie. What kind should I make?

Netflix is doing awful things in my household. I’ve watched way too many movies in the past week: Confessions of a Shopaholic, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, 500 Days of Summer, When Harry Met Sally, and The Proposal. I have very mixed feelings about this. Stephen loves movies so I’m glad he gets to see them but, sheesh, what a waste of time. I have enjoyed them, for the most part, but I don’t like staying up so late sitting in front of the tv. Maybe the novelty will wear off soon.
