The start to a great weekend!!

Yesterday was a beautiful day! Even though big storms blew through Kansas City, I stayed inside and was a happy "Little Poot". Why you might ask?? Well... I received a box of goodies from Becky in the mail:

When we were in Florida I fell in love with Plantain Chips!! What is even better is that they are gluten free. I had sadly run out, but Becky changed that. They are made in her hometown of Tampa, FL, and they are delicious. I am going to try and control myself and not eat them all this weekend. Ha! She also sent along the funniest book called "Cats are Weird". Oh man this book is dead on. Poot and I were cracking up looking through it last night. Thank you Becky! XOXO

I decided to treat myself to a Starbucks. It had been too long...can you tell??


I started preparing my supplies for my handmade Christmas list. I have vowed to start early and it paid off. I found all of this on clearance and I can't wait to begin!!


I have tickets on my fridge to go see two amazing bands...


Band of Horses and She & Him!! I seriously am giddy just thinking about seeing them live!! Can't wait to see what Zoey will be wearing!

I have been working on my multi colored granny afghan. I have decided to name it Carnival Granny because I am going to decorate in a Carnival theme in our sunroom. It is slowing getting bigger:

I love how it is turning out.

Well, I am off to get ready for our day. We are going to hang out with my Bubs today (I can't believe he leaves for Spain again in a month!).Tonight we are going to a birthday party for Scott's step-dad. Tomorrow I plan on cleaning all day and posting a LOT more vintage goodness in the shop!
Happy Saturday!
XOXO

I'm so glad you got the plantains and books :)
Are they the best?! I can eat a whole bag (alone) in one sitting!! I pretend like they're good for me bc they're gluten free lol I ignore the fat, calories, etc. Gluten free = healthy ;)

I'm really excited you get to see She & Him - and jealous lol My sister saw them at Bonaroo (sp) and she said it was awesome!

I'm at work - blah about to leave lol I want a Starbucks!!
Can't wait to see what you make for Christmas gifts! :)
