Good morning. I hope you’re Monday started out on the right foot. Not much of a weekend to speak about over here as I have been hit by something and am down for the count. Taking it as a sign to slow down and rest. You know you feel pretty darn awful when you see laundry piling up and you couldn’t care less. Actually, my husband has been really great about jumping in and kept the children busy most of the weekend.
He took the kids to a local football game on Friday and he sent me this picture of the sky. So gorgeous. The kiddos loved running on to the field and being a part of this event.
Fairly certain that while dad was making pancakes my son was asleep on the island. He was still wiped out from the night before!
AROUND THE HOUSE
Meanwhile, I have been on the sofa or in bed for three days. The strangest thing is that when I am not feeling well I LOVE watching the cooking channel. Go figure. So Pioneer Woman is on as much as possible. I love her calming demeanor. It’s also a bonus that my family benefits from any new recipes I find. Although let’s be honest. I rarely make the yummy things I see.
I also dug out my leg warmers. I love wearing them when I am stuck in the house. I am not much of a slipper girl because my feet get too warm so these are perfect. Also great to get caught up on my magazine reading. I adore Serena & Lily and wish everything in print would come to life in my own home.
Thank you to my family for the pretty flowers. There is something about tulips that always brighten a room.
This made me smile. I happen to LOVE Zooey Deschanel. When we were watching New Girl the other night I squealed because she was wearing my buffalo check shirt. I think we could be best friends. Ok, I’m just kidding, but I like her taste in shirts (or at least the costume department’s taste in shirts)!
SALES END TODAY
I did manage to spend some time on my laptop doing a bit of retail therapy. There are so many crazy sales going on right now. World Market has marked down most of their rugs 60% off. But then you also get an extra 30% off with the code FALLFF. What?! Sale ends today. I am looking at some of the jute area rugs to put under some of my rugs I think could be too small for my area. I love the layering look and right now I can get the rug above in 9 x 12 for only $112! That’s a steal. You can look here at all of the rugs and remember you take an extra 30% off.
ONE KINGS LANE
I know it’s October but this advertisement for the Pottery Barn sale got me so exited for the holidays. I am already planning my Dream Tree so my wheels are spinning. This sale ends today, too but worth checking out. Use code FRIENDS16 for Free Shipping and 20% off your entire order. I LOVE the cable knit stockings. With the sale and free shipping, it’s a good time to scoop them up if you need new ones.
Loft is having a really big sale today, too. You will get 60% off sale prices and 40% off of everything that is full priced. Not bad, my friends. I might order that first cardigan in red for our holiday photos. And that bracelet is now only $6. What?! Buy them for everyone for Christmas! LOL. Definitely worth checking out the sales.
Anthropologie is also offering 40% off of the already marked down sale items. I have been waiting for this dress to go on sale. It was originally $138 and is now $30!!!! That’s a price I can get behind. With shipping and tax it came to $40. I went with the XS because the reviews said it ran large.
J.Crew is also slashing prices. This striped t-shirt is $10!!! This white blazer was
$180 and is now $40! Free shipping today, too. The entire outfit above is $90. For the ENITRE OUTIFT!!! Use code YESPLEASE
Here is hoping your Monday is much more productive than mine. If I’m stuck watching the food channel I’ll be sure to share any great recipes I discover. Have a really great day.
