Weekend Recap

This extended weekend has went by way too fast, but I certainly tried to make the most of it! Friday I was up and out of the house at 3 AM! This meant that I did win the bet my mom and Gabe made with me. I usually can not drag myself out of bed and that hour, but with the prospect of finding great bargains I was up at 2AM and singing Christmas songs at that! Unfortunately for me our bet was of the verbal manner. If I would have known I could really be up that early I would have attached some type of monetary value to make it worth my while!

There were so many bargains Friday! I was able to complete all of my Christmas shopping, except for three people. There were also several cute things that I couldn't live without for myself as well. ;)

Saturday, before attending a surprise party for a friend, we managed to get all of our inside Christmas decorations up. It is such a chore, but I love them once they are in place.

Barkley was right in the middle of the action:

I started moving the Nutcracker's mouth and talking to him so I think he was quite confused! It was pretty darn funny!

He then took to attacking King Kong, which was fine since it kept him from attacking my ornaments. Maybe he was just trying to help us by making it look like it had snowed!

It certainly is looking like Christmas now:

Today I worked on a gift for my Secret Santa present:

I hope you all are having a great weekend as well! Did you find any bargains?

Your ornaments are so cute! I actually stayed away from the stores on Friday, but on Saturday I went over to Michael's to buy materials for my tree decorations. Can't wait to start putting this stuff up!
