Saturday was fun. My Mom hosted a joint birthday for Craig, my sister, and my step Dad. It was very fun and laid back.
Bel came over on Sunday and did amazing things with my bargain roast. Not only did it not taste like shoe leather, but it is entirely gone! So good. She nixed the crockpot idea and instead boiled it for hours in beer and coca cola with onions, a bay leaf, celery and spices. Only at the end did she add carrots and potatos. Also, the Hawks won again in a great game against the Bears. Both teams played really well. We then watched the Calendar girls, but alas we watched it fully clothed which seems somehow wrong.
I have a bit of a cold, but all things considered, I'm not that whiny.
I'm looking forward to eating some food at Thanksgiving! I'm still 6lbs under my goal weight and I'm freezing this winter. I need fluffy sweaters.
So, who is going to those Black Friday sales? I'm scared of them, but need to save money on Christmas this year. Already, looking at lights for the outside of the house, I'm realizing that we don't have the budget to be in this neighborhood at Christmas. People go crazy with decoration and it's almost unheard of to not have elaborate lights. If you see any good deals on outside lights, let me know.
