Every year we always decorate for Christmas either the day after Thanksgiving or that weekend. We put all the decorations up and even go get the tree...get everything done in one day. Well....this year is different. Brandon has been hunting every weekend since deer season started and this weekend was no different. I was home alone (with the dogs) Sunday and getting very bored. I finally decided to put away all of the fall decorations and start putting up the Christmas decorations...I just couldn't wait!! Of course I couldn't go get the tree but I got everything else up inside all while watching "Christmas with the Kranks." I'm definitely getting into the spirit of Christmas a little early this year but it's my favorite time of year and I just couldn't wait to decorate.....after this weekend it'll all be more real (with the tree) and the Christmas season can officially start!!
Last night for movie night I picked out 2 movies I wanted to watch...The Proposal & The Ugly Truth. I had been wanting to see these and since they were both available I snatched them up! They both were really good and I'll definitely be going out and buying them....if I don't get them for Christmas. ;) I highly recommend checking them out if you haven't already!!

I started #86 on my list a couple weeks ago...a 1000 pc. puzzle. I had decided I wasn't going to spend a lot of money on one so I went to Catholic Charities and picked one up for 50 cents, can't beat that. I'd been working on it in the evenings and some on the weekends and finally finished it last night...I was so proud of myself when I put the final piece in!! Here's the finished product. (Note: there are a couple pieces missing b/c I had dropped them on the floor & before I found them the dogs had already started eating them so they weren't in any condition to be put in it)
TA-DA! (the pic needs flipped, sorry)

We chose to watch "Fool's Gold" last night for our new movie. I thought it was a pretty good movie but I think I need to watch it again tonight because last night I was doing a puzzle while trying to watch so I didn't exactly get to see everything. ;)

Well we got some bad news last night. The house we're currently renting is being put up for sale. :( We have the chance to buy it so I guess we're going to start filling out loan applications but this really puts a damper on things. To add to it, the realtor is supposed to be calling to come measure the rooms and take pictures....are they kidding???!!! One of the spare rooms is a mess b/c after the wedding I just threw everything back in there..we don't even use the room so it's basically just storage. Now I have to actually make myself go in there and clean and organize everything so this dumb person can come in and measure. (No offense to any realtors) If we don't get approved by the bank to buy a house we're pretty much gonna be homeless...I do not want to have to go back and live with Brandon's parents....ugghh!

We watched our second movie we rented Sunday night, "Obsessed." This one was way better than the first one we watched. It is a drama about a girl who becomes obsessed over a man she works with and ends up causing a lot of problems with him and his family. I could definitely watch it again!

Last week on my way home from work I decided I'd stop by the park and take a few pics before the leaves were gone. These are the three I got that were pretty good. I'm glad I got them when I did because it seems like most of the leaves are off the trees now. :(
We are started a tradition of watching a new movie every Sunday night. Last night I told DH he could choose what we watched...he came home with "Knowing" and "Obsessed." We ended up only watching "Knowing" and let me tell ya, I really don't need to watch it again. I'm just not into the freaky, kinda weird movies. I was waiting for something bad to happen every time the "white faced" guys would come. The ending was definitely not what I expected. I guess we might watch "Obsessed" tonight.
I've already finished my fourth book! It's the 2nd one in the Shopaholic series....Shopaholic Takes Manhattan. After reading this one I now realize that they also took parts of this book and put in the movie. It continues on the life of Rebecca Bloomwood and how she continues to deal with her "shopping" problem. I'll definitely be getting the next book....Shopaholic Ties the Knot!
