Week in Review: 11/27

I totally experienced a Black Friday Miracle today. Mom and I wait until later in the morning, like 9 a.m. to head out because there's nothing we want so bad we'll get up before daylight for. So we get to Target and I wanted one of their $7.50 puffy vests in brown or gray. Sensing this would be a popular item, I went there first, scanned the area, no puffy vests. Look again, because they have to be somewhere, and I see the empty rack with the $7.50 puffy vests sign. Oh well. Mom and I went on to pick up some electronic items. Seeing I had some money left I stopped back by the clothing section right as someone was putting back some gray puffy vests and I totally snagged the small just as another lady was heading over. Go me! Success!

So yeah, this week...

A book lover's tiny paradise, although I'm still holding out for Belle's library from Beauty and the Beast. Best library ever. In reality though, the Britsh Museum has a nice reading room.

If I had ridiculous amounts of money, I would soon own Audrey's dress from Love in the Afternoon. And if I was like 5'7" and 105 lbs., I'd wear it to the opera too.

Must incorporate turkey bowling into future Thanksgivings.

I really want to have more plants around and here are some good ways to keep them . If only my cat didn't try to eat them and if I didn't tend to forget about them and let them die (the sad fate of our herb garden). Here are some great potting ideas if I ever get my plant act together.

Haha...yeah, I have this one plant in my office at work that keeps wilting, then I water it and it perks back up. Most of the leaves have brown tips. It's pretty sad.
