Weekly Roundup

This was the dessert table on Thanksgiving at the Boy’s Grandma’s. So yummy!

Hey everyone! Hope you all are having a great weekend.

I’m loving having all of these days off in a row. Sad that it’s already Saturday, but I’m still happy!

If you guys want to hear a sad tidbit about me that is extremely embarrassing, I finally got my ears pierced. Yes, I know, very sad especially for a girl like me who loves clothes, being girly and everything else.

I’ve always put it off and then eventually I felt so old and too embarrassed to get it done. Haha okay commence the making fun of me!

Anyways, now that you’re hopefully done laughing at me, we decided that we are most likely going to go out of town in December for 3-4 days.

We don’t know when the boy’s next vacation will be, so we decided to use this time wisely. We are thinking either San Juan again or maybe trying St. Thomas since we haven’t been.

If you’ve been to St. Thomas, tell us what to do, see and stay! And if you think we should go to San Juan instead, also say that. I want all opinions! We are trying to save as much money as we can on this, so I am looking for the best deals.

The iPad Mini and CASH giveaway is still happening just so you all don’t forget! Only a couple days left so get your entries in :)

Also, I’m going to start up the Reader Question series again, so if you have any questions that you would like to to research and answer, please leave them below, tweet them or e-mail me! Also, if you have any questions about my extra income and earning money online, ask them also. I plan on including as many as I can into a post that I’m drafting.

    Thanks for the link love Michelle :) So are you enjoying wearing earrings now that you've had them pierced? As for St. Thomas my husband has travelled there a couple of times. He said he stayed at the Sugar Bay & Spa Resort which sits on a hilltop that overlooks the ocean as well as the Windward Passage Hotel.

    I can't make fun of you because I was 20 years old before I got mine pierced. I was a big ol' chicken!! Two people had to pierce them at the same time because I knew I'd back out after just one. Two years after that, I got a 2nd hole :) So it must not have been too bad after all!
    Have a great rest of the weekend! Excited to hear where you choose for vaca!

    We did stop by Kohl's in the late afternoon but we didn't buy anything. Lots of "deals" that weren't really that great so we passed. We know we didn't make it to early bird, but we prefer to walk out with our lives.

    How exciting that you got your ears pierced! Keep it clean! Infections are the worst! I did Black Friday shopping only at Urban Outfitters. Was 50% off all sale and was not crazy crowded so I got some good stuff!

    Big Bang Theory for the win :0) Although the jokes in the more recent episodes aren't as good as the older ones. I stayed home on Friday because there wasn't really anything I wanted to buy. Thanks for including my post in your list 😀
