Weekly Recap: 11/23 - 11/29

My Super Exciting Life 

My week has been largely uneventful, which, I suppose, is a good thing. My brother came to stay last Sunday night, which was a lot of fun! He ended up coming back to stay again after Thanksgiving dinner. We did a lot of Black Friday shopping and played some Disney Infinity. One (two) of the things I got this weekend are:

Both were on my Christmas list, so here's hoping no one actually buys them!

Black Friday shopping was not the only shopping going on this weekend! About a year and a half ago, my husband and I moved and had to downsize to a queen-sized bed. While a lot of people don't mind not sleeping in a giant bed, my husband is 6'3" and we have two dogs - we need a giant bed. After moving yet again, we were FINALLY able to go purchase a new one from Sleep Number.

I also had a ton of homework to deal with over Thanksgiving break (seriously, who does that)? While I did get most of it done, I have quite a bit left to figure out before Monday. Oh well. Such is life. One more semester to go!

New Books Finds

Early this week I went shopping on my Kindle. Most of my finds were free this week!


And then Black Friday happened... My brother and I were outside of Barnes and Noble 20 minutes before it opened with five other book nerds who were wrapped in blankets. I got inside and knew I was in big trouble. There were SO many that I wanted! But I ended up settling for these three (I actually got one for my husband, but I can't share it with you until after Christmas in case he finds his way to this page). Dan Brown is one of my favorite authors of all time and this is an illustrated copy of Inferno! It was 20% off and I had a 30% off coupon, so I got it for $22.
