{Weekend Wrap-Up}

Happy {or not-so-happy} Election Day!  I'm not going to bring up politics on here, but I think we can all agree this has been the most interesting election year ever.  I'm just going to leave it at this...
We are now one full week into November & the weather has finally kinda-sorta decided to start acting a little fall-like.  It's still not cold by any means, but at least we are in the upper 70's & lower 80's instead of the 90's like we were last week.

I took off work on Friday & we had our annual family garage sale at my house.  It's a lot of work & it makes for a really long day (up at 5:30 & first shoppers arriving before 7am), but we got rid of A LOT of stuff & I made enough cash to put a large dent in my Christmas gift buying fund.  After an 11 hour day on Friday, Abby & I rewarded ourselves with margaritas.
Normally we only have it on one day, but our neighborhood was having a neighborhood-wide garage sale on Saturday so we decided to open it for a few hours.  We didn't have much left, but got rid of quite a bit more so it was worth it.
We called it quits around 10am, packed everything up & then Nola and I spent a few hours doing this {nap for her, football for me}. 
November is also Nola's birthday month so my sweet 4-legged baby turned 2!  We aren't sure of the exact day since she was a shelter puppy but the vet estimated it to be around November 3rd so we celebrated this weekend with doggie cupcakes & a few new treats.
Sunday pretty much looked like this all day...
So I took advantage & started transitioning from this...
To this...
Yes, I realize it's only November 8th.  One holiday at a time.  We do celebrate Thanksgiving, but not at my house so why not!  My Fall decor has been out since August so I have had plenty of time to enjoy it.  I love Christmas even more so I want plenty of time to enjoy it as well.  I will slowly make the transition over the next week or two and hopefully have it all complete by Thanksgiving for sure.

This weekend was also the start of daylight savings time.  By 6:30 Sunday evening, Nola was out like a light.  Can't say I blame her, I was ready to join her by about 7:30.
Tonight, I am going out with friends to a ladies' night at a local store.  There will wine.  Lots of wine.  Because regardless of who is declared the winner tonight, America will be losing either way.
