When Mondays don't suck

I found the secret for making Mondays about 20 times better. I'm so nice I'm going to share the secret with you....use those saved up vacation days! Bam! Just blew your mind right? And since I've been a blog slacker lately, you get updated on more than just my weekend....sit back and hang around a while.

Thanks to some later hours last week, Friday I got to cut out of work a little early. I love leaving work early on Fridays. It just doesn't seem right to be in the office until 5. I picked up my Ugly Sweater Run swag and shopped around in Sports Authority for a while. Gah, why is exercise gear so expensive?! I am just going to get all funky sweaty in it, but dang if they don't have some super cute stuff in there. 
After a little shopping at my home away from home Target, I got a call from Oprah my real estate agent to say "You got a home for Christmas." We got our final yes from the sellers' banks around 4:45 Friday afternoon. Now I'm not totally jumping up and down because I'm a worrier. I've gotta set up the home inspection for as soon as possible. Once the inspector tells me that the foundation is stable, the wiring and plumbing aren't missing, and the spot on the carpet is just a spot and not a hole to China under the flooring AND we get an idea on the actual close date....THEN i will start doing my happy happy dance! 

We may or may not have driven to the house Friday night and pretended we were parking in our new garage...B may or may not have seriously cried when we told her....and I may or may not have reorganized my pinterest albums this weekend to separate legitimate house ideas from "i'm never going to be able to do that" house ideas. 
Other than constant new house talk and ideas, we had a few other things to check off our weekend list. The big one was B's first basketball game. Ever. she is a 24/7 softball girl so this basketball thing was super new for her. 
Yes I took a picture of her waiting to go in for the first time. She didn't look too bad for a newbie. We were a little worried by the size of the kids on the other team and may have requested birth certificates. But our girls handled it.
My baby scored 4 points and got her first foul! The lady Rebels won with a final score of 28-4. Because..."that's how we do" 
This weekend was a bust when it came to finishing up the tree though. I just didn't take the time to go somewhere good like HobLobs or Michaels for tree topping sparkly goodness though. So until then....we improvised...
We're a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll around here. It's kind of growing on me though. 

Ok time for me to get productive and watch some trash tv and set up an inspection, talk to my mortgage guy, go get boxes, hit the wine box, hit the gym, and all that good stuff. Feel free to stop what you're doing and come help!
