This Weekend:

* Friday morning errands which included a trip to the $ bins at Target.

More happy than you know to see that they're slowly putting out alllll of their Christmas goodies!

A quick stop by Goodwill with a browse though the book section, of course.  IG stories will be updated later with my funniest finds 😂

* Lunch with Joe and his mom and sis at the hospital.
{Banner Desert cafeteria - your Philly Cheesesteak did not disappoint!}

Joe's dad recently had surgery and is thankfully back home now recovering!

* We stayed in Friday night, ordered takeout and hunkered down on the couch for a 2 hour Dateline.  
We really know how to live on the edge.

* Saturday I tore down alllll of my Halloween and Fall stuff.

This year is a first.
I'm going STRAIGHT to Christmas now and skipping over ALL of my Thanksgiving decor.  Before you say I'm crazy, I do have 2 good reasons....

1.  We'll be out of town this year for Thanksgiving and so I want everything put up and out before we leave town so that we can come back to a Christmas-y home.

2.  The lights on my 9 foot pre-lit tree went out last year {ugh} and instead of buying a brand new one this year {they're like $400-$500!} I am going to strand each and every branch with fresh new lights.  With my mom's help of course, because she is the stranding genius. Anyhoo - - this might just take forever because my tree is so big, so I'm getting started on it EARLY!

* Saturday night we attended a SURPRISE 40th birthday party for my cute sis-in-law Tauna.

We ate soups and rolls and s'mores outside and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. 

November in AZ is the start of our DREAMY season.

* We dropped by Crumbl afterwards to pick up a thank you gift for a friend...

Bad pic, but we tried their Midnight Madness cookie and YUM! it might just be a new fave.
 {Joe said it tasted more like a brownie.  I'm ok with that!}

* Churchey-church on Sunday.
I couldn't make it through our closing song without tearing up. 
Yet again.

This song just does it to me.
The words, the's my favorite!
It seems like each time I sing it, a new line stands out to me.

* Sunday dinner at my parent's house.
My mom's roast and potatoes always taste better than mine.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

On tap this week:

If you haven't gotten your ornament orders in'll wanna do it sooner than later as I do sell out each year.

* Putting up the Christmas tree!!
{Which means technically, it's AOK to start playing Christmas music now too, huh? 😃}

* Uber driving my kids EVERYWHERE.
Anyone else feel this way lately?
