Good morning and congratulations! You deserve a spirited high-five, because you’ve made it halfway through your week! Way to go, champ!
Don’t know about y’all, but here in North Central Texas we’re finally experiencing fall- crisp mornings in the 50’s, highs in the 70’s, and rain showers scattered throughout. No complaints here.
In fact, I could handle it being even cooler…the colder, the better for this pregnant lady from East Tennessee. I’ve already checked ahead, and I see some nights in the 40’s ahead. Saweet!
This past weekend at Wal-Mart, I was amazed, though not entirely disgusted, by how Christmas cheer has filled the store in the first weekend of November. While I’m coming around to the Christmas stuff now that we’re 6 weeks away, I still want to give autumn and Thanksgiving the honor they deserve.
With that being said, a lot of Wal-Mart’s fall décor and Halloween supplies were super on clearance. Some impulse buys occurred, but for only $1 I didn’t feel too guilty.
This week I’ve got a round of fun that just may make their way into your carts this week, too. If any do, please snap a pic and tag me either on Facebook or Instagram.
