Happy Sunday evening to you all. I hope that your weekend was fun and relaxing. I'm joining in on the Sunday Night Chit-Chat hosted by Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily.

What are you...
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I can't believe it took me a whole week to read the first in the series. Yikes!
America's Funniest Videos. Not really watching it. It's just sort of noise in the background. I am, however, super incredibly excited that Grimm will be back on starting tomorrow night.
My Beloved loading the dishwasher. Have I mentioned... he does the dishes and the laundry? Yup, he's mine and you can't have him! :)
Because it was cooler today, I actually did a more traditional Sunday night dinner. I roasted a chicken stuffed with garlic, onion, lemon, and thyme. Served it with mashed taters & gravy, mixed steamed veg, and yorkshire puddings. It was really good, except that the yorkies got a little overdone. Not sure what happened... I used my usual recipe.
Happy you accomplished this week?
We had a really fun date night... went shopping for a few things that Pippin needed (a larger swaddle bag and some long pants), went for dinner, drove around looking at houses we can't afford, and then went to see the Disney movie "Brave". It was soooo good. And I didn't even mind that it was in 3D (I normally have a strong dislike for 3D movies. Wearing the glasses over top of my glasses usually gives me a headache).
Looking forward to next week?
Crafting night with the girls. I'm planning on getting started on my Christmas crafts... 'cause I'm slow like that. :) And that dang Pinterest has so many great ideas that I want to do, I have to start early. Must make a trip to the dollar store and the craft store tomorrow.
Thankful for today?
Cooler weather, the herbs that I've actually grown and managed to not kill, and my church family.
*BONUS QUESTION?* When it comes to shopping for clothes for yourself, what item do you have the hardest time saying "no" to?
Hmmmm... that's tough. Right now, there's really no money in the budget for me to buy things for myself (I'm having to budget and maximize coupons for my bras here people). When I was working though, socks were my frivilous purchases. I'm really not a sock person, I'd rather be barefoot. But working for a company with a strict dress code made me fall in love with fun socks... particularly stripey ones. It was my little form of rebellion.
