Playing Catch Up

This post is gonna be all over the place i started to blog about my new chalkboard frame but then i realized how many other things i haven't shared with y'all. So here goes...

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break! We had a great time with family in Atlanta. I did some midnight black Friday shopping for the first time, TOTALLY WORTH IT! 
We started at Kohls, we got there at 11:52PM and the line was wrapped around the building.
 5 minutes after we got there this was the line behind us. So Crazy!!
When we got there we realized how many people do this black friday thing. We thought there would be nothing left by the time we got in the store.  But we got everything on our list! Kohls was so prepared and kept bringing out more stuff when they ran out. And all the employees were so helpful even though it was midnight and there were a million people running around like crazy. But it was so fun! We were in and out in an hour and a half, like i said, totally worth it!
If you follow me on twitter you know i got this chair at the thrift store a few weeks back.
Well i went to a different thrift store a few days later and saw this guy...
   I loved him so much more cause i don't have to recover him. i love the green color.
So I ended up with this...
 I am trying to sell the flower chair and i put the green one near our Christmas tree :)
In other news we got our car seat and pack n play for baby Z while we were home for Thanksgiving... Here's the creepster dad with the handlebar mustache displaying our new toy :)
The Craft/Guest room is coming along nicely, i sold the large green desk and bought this smaller one for $25 at the thrift store.
Here is the before.
 and "in progress" i say in progress cause i think eventually i will paint the rest of the desk the same color as the file cabinet.
The top of the desk is chalkboard paint. i love the stuff!
 And remember this chalkboard i made for our front porch this Fall
Well i wanted to replace it with a Christmas one, so i found this frame at the thrift store for $2
 I used a little red paint i had on hand and chalkboard paint and ended up with this!
And i will end this post with this, i wanna get my hair cut like the picture below... It could just be the pregnancy talking but i just want something different.
What do you think!?!

And last but not least, don't forget to enter the Mwana giveaway for this adorable blanket, giveaway ends this Wednesday!
