Ten on Tuesday…

29 Nov

1. I just came off of 9 days vacation from school! It was joyous! It was also hard getting my butt up at 5:15 and running 5 miles this morning! JK! Did you really think I did that? YOU clearly don’t know me! I do get up at 5:15 though. I was late to work. Late for me is 6:50…It was beautiful to have no “bedtime” and no wake up time the last 9 days!

2. Thursday for the giving of Thanks we had my mom over for breakfast and then we headed to The Boys’ parents house for some good eats. People…I am not a fan of Thanksgiving just so ya know! BUT these yams the Mrs. made were so ENJOYABLE! I gained 5 lbs from looking at them! They were like candy on my lips…I think I am drooling just thinking about them.

3. Friday was Black Friday…I wasn’t a crazy who went out at midnight and arrived home at 6:45am! Infact, a friend said she stood inline JUST TO BUY HER ITEMS for 2.5 HOURS!!! Really?!?! My bed is much more enjoyable. I went to Jazz to the Cise at 8 then at 9 The Boy and I headed to Target to get some “doorbusters”…and guess what?!?! They were still there! We picked up an Aerobed because our mattress just isnt’ cutting it anymore. JK! You didn’t think we have been sleep on an air mattress did you? We currently have a futon that will soon be vacating my craft room to make more for my sweat shop of first graders that do my business for me and I pay them $.10 per hour…only if they are on good behavior. Okay back to reality…we have SO MANY guests that stay over we have to have a place for them to sleep. We don’t really BUT if we did…we need a sleeping place. Or if it gets so hot like we are in the Sahara like last summer, we can sleep in the living room. So if you want a futon that’s in good shape…let me know!

4. So does anyone recognize this little guy?

He’s Ndamukong Suh…he plays for the Detroit Lions. This boy is HUGE! He’s 6’4 and weighs 307 lbs. This boy is NOT fat…
Why am I talking about this boy? I saw him as a LITTLE guy…little meaning….4 years old. His sister and I twirled baton together (little trivia about MegPie!) and Ndamukong would run like a mad man all over the hallways. Who knew he was practicing for the NFL!!!! I so wish I had a picture of him when he was that little! He’s currently in trouble with the NFL for a little “penalty” on Thanksgiving day…my mom and I joke about his mom getting on his case for it too!

5. The Boy has been given the privilege of being a Godfather to one of our AMAZING friends’ baby. He’s super excited and keeps saying, “Why would they choose me?” very genuinely…so cute!

6. Baby Shower on Thursday for my friend Jessica!!! I can’t wait! I made some decor that I will PROMISE to take pics of!

7. Okay peeps it’s time to pull out those pocket books! JK! I am killing myself with jokes!
