So Many Clowns So Little Time ~ OPI Nail Polish

While out running errands I saw a nail salon and decided to pop in. During the winter I usually gravitate to darker colors so I thought I would go with something lighter.

I found this OPI nail polish color, So Many Clowns So Little Time and decided to give it a try. I think it turned out very nice.

Thanksgiving Dinner: Maybe a Turkey Roast!

Butterball Turkey Roast from last Thanksgiving

Maybe I'll make a Turkey Roast? I'm still trying to decide!

Menu Plan Monday ~ November 21, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving !

My husband has to work on Thanksgiving so it will be just Marcus and me. I'm thinking of having a roasted chicken, stuffing, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.

I might buy a turkey since the prices are so good and just put it in the freezer. We'll see.

Marcus and I have been talking about hitting a few Black Friday sales. The trick it to get him up early. It's not easy to wake up a 6ft 5inch teenager!

Now onto this week's menu! Thank you to Organizing Junkie for hosting this weekly linky party!

Lasagna, mixed greens salad

Baked chicken, broccoli, stuffing and sweet potatoes

Frogmore Stew

Couple Time: Country Living Magazine

One of our favorite couple moments is to look at the new "Country Living" magazine when it arrives!
Our favorite section to read is the Real Estate Sampler!
We love looking at the various homes, commenting on the prices and layouts. Charles and I love imagining us living in one them.

Our Teen's Re-Do of His Bedroom

I guess Marcus has gotten bitten by re-do bug. He decided to create a lounge in his room.
