weekend

We had a really nice weekend!  Friday night we were able to go out with some friends sans kids, thanks to my mom who rushed home from work to babysit.  Matt and I rarely go out without the kids.  I prefer to be with my kids most of the time...but once in a while it is nice to get out of the house and have some adult conversation!  Now that Jack is getting older and not nursing as frequently, that definitely helps with getting out of the house!

Saturday we were able to go out to breakfast, my favorite thing ever.  There was a time when we could go out to breakfast every weekend, not the case anymore.  I know, there is nothing healthy about going out to breakfast, and it probably isn't even close to local, but it is a local business :-)  And I want to support local businesses!

I also was able to get some good deals on Christmas decorations...I know, not even Thanksgiving yet.  The stores were blasting Christmas music though, so I fell right in step and got in the Christmas spirit.  This year will be the first year we have the entire house for the holidays.  No renters (at least no plans on renters...ask me again if oil goes up to $4/gallon), and a very large house with lot's of rooms to decorate means I need to get my craft on.  I found some fun things to make on pinterest, and was able to get some supplies this weekend.

What were you up to this weekend?  Any fun holiday ideas?
