The new year got off to a relaxing start as Steve and I spent the day together drinking coffee, running errands and playing with his new toy – Rock Band 2. Our Dillard’s was having an additional 50% off sale so we decided to check out the bargains. A pair of boots I’d been eyeing all season were now almost 75% off so I snapped them up and Steve supplemented his work wardrobe with some $10 shirts and a new tie. Then I dropped Steve off at Best Buy while I went to Target for some exciting things like cat litter. We met up a little bit later and Steve surprised me with the season one DVD set of Mad Men. What a sweetie! We ended our exciting day at Sarah and Dennis’ with a few Old Fashioneds and some snacks. All in all, a good start to the year.
Today, however, will be a busy one. I have to get the house ready for our local paper, the News-Leader, to come over and take pictures for their Home of the Week profile. My mom and I are always griping about how ugly the profile homes are so she said once we were settled in the new house she was going to call the paper and suggest us. They called on Tuesday and will be here Monday. I’m excited because this will force me to finish up the projects I started before Christmas. Today’s agenda is replacing dying plants inside, cleaning up clutter and arranging the office. Better get started! If you take the News-Leader, we’ll be in the Sunday, January 18 edition.
