More Home Renovations!

Today is the day after Thanksgiving, and due to a plethora of yummy and healthful sides, (as well as deserts)…I am feeling great and really glad that I stuffed myself, but didn’t suffer a sugar comatose or that feeling of fatigue from a rich-food ladened meal.

I think I gave everyone extra energy and ambition to tackle even more home projects and “winter cleaning” around the house today!

Went through cloths, toys, and storage to be donated!

I love having a handy-man for a husband! I see something I love  and all I have to do is ask…bam! it’s done; albeit, there is always a stipulation like making one of my left-over turkey day sandwiches, (or making sure there is never an empty beer on hand).

Ryan's favorite post-turkey meal: Turkey, cranberry sauce, spinach/artichoke dip, mustard, mayo, on our new favorite sourdough bread (Simple Kneads)

Trout kept saying “yee-haw”…my boys never fail to entertain.

Why we thought going to Menards on Black Friday is beyond me…but thankfully we made it out without waiting in lines or dealing with tons of crowds, (I am not a fan of shopping if you couldn’t tell by now).

We didn’t leave the store without having to get chocolate.  We are notorious for going out close to meal time or when we are already past hungry, (do any of you do that? we either end up almost killing each other due to hunger or buying too much if we’re at the grocery store)…you think we’d learn.

I love Dove chocolate once in a while, (not my favorite, but we were low and needed a quick pick me up before we could eat  substance).  I thought the wrapper I got was appropriate.

Today was another day off from running.  I will admit, I am not a big fan of 2 days off from running a week, but I am not questioning the method…Run or not, my furry babes need to get out, so we hit up our favorite walk before the sunset.  I love watching my pups run around, it reminds me of why I love running so much, it just feels great!

my Mom is amazing at knitting and has made me so many great things to wear, my scarf in this picture being one of them!

What will be doing this weekend?  Making our closet more functional

We also live near Garrison, ND.  They have a Christmas “Dickens Festival”  They celebrate all things English. We are hoping to take the boys there to partake in the festivities as well as ride a double decker bus…they would love it!Bus_Cropped

Happy post Thanksgiving…hoping your food comas are starting to subside and you enjoyed a beautiful day with your family and friends.

How many of you are addicted to home renovation projects?

What is your favorite HGTV show? Mine right now is Rehab addict and Fixer Upper…but I am pretty happy about Property Brothers, Cousins on Call, and Flea Market Flip, (Netflix could keep me entertained for hours with all of their HGTV episodes)
