Every weekday morning I've been walking up at 7am to drink my coffee before getting to work at 8am. Since I'm way too tired to blog at night, I thought that I could try to blog in the morning like I used to when I was able to watch It's Me or the Dog.
Anyway, as I said before, we've been crock potting our meals. Well, this week I'm trying to actually cook. Last week I found that if I took even the shortest of naps I wouldn't be able to sleep in the evening. When I tried to stay awake it was very difficult. So this week, while I wait for Ed to come home from work, I'm going to move around the kitchen. Hopefully that way I can stay awake after I get home. Although I get home at around 3 45pm, I'm hoping I don't fall asleep before dinner time.
After a very difficult week (I don't want to talk about it), I felt that I deserved a shopping day. I went out to TJ Maxx and spent quite a bit of money, but got a lot for it. I got new pillows since ours were so flat that I would end up sleeping directly on the bed and not even realize that I wasn't on my pillow. I also got us some really nice paisley sheets. I really like the mature look of Garnet Hill linens, but they are way to expensive for me. So for $40 I bought a nice set of blue and green sheets. I also found a brown paisley duvet that was only $13! I had to get it as a winter duvet. Even though the white one that we have right now brightens the room when there are 10 inches of snow outside, I'd like to have a little change once in a while. I put the new sheets on and we were quite thrown off when we got in. They felt slippery and kind of like silk even though they are cotton. When I was telling a friend about them he asked what the thread count was. I was like, I don't know...I just liked the pattern. Well, it turns out that they are 310 thread count, which is probably why we felt like we were in a hotel and not our bed.
Moving on. I also got a really cute black waitress style dress, jeans that actually fit my expanding body, and vans slip ons that I've been wanting for ages. The dress was red tagged at $16 when the rest were $20 because there was a little something on it. I took a wet paper towel and it came right off. The jeans were $20 for American Eagle brand and the shoes were $17 when they are usually $40. I feel like I made out pretty well. I was very excited. I know I told Melanie that I could wait 6 months before buying another pair of shoes, but I had to get these. They have stars on them and I've been wanting them for months! It was fate. They weren't the color that I wanted, but I'll live with it. They were more than half off! Anyways, it's 7 48 and I have to be at work at 8. I have to go. I'll have to come back and edit this post for mistakes and add pictures and links for you all. Bye!
