Another day with a long to-do list

And I haven't gotten much done.

Why?



It snowed today. Hubs woke me up and told me to look outside, and this is what I saw. We got a little bit more than this, but not by much. And so when we have weather like this, I just want to curl up on the couch in a quilt and watch tv. So that's what I did.

Yesterday, I was busy picking tomatoes from my garden. On December 1st! Can you believe I still have veggies growing? I think I picked about 30+ tomatoes, a couple of bell peppers and 2 poblanos.



So in the meantime, I'm trying to climb Mt. Laundry and catch up on some other household odds and ends. I still haven't put up my Christmas trees, and honestly, I'm not feeling too guilty about it. Hubs keeps asking when I'll be getting to it (yes, he likes to see them but no, he doesn't want to help). My goal is to finish the holiday decor this weekend. We'll see.

For my anniversary, I got a pair of beautiful Lucchese boots! I saw these in a store on the square last year for a whopping $400+. While that isn't much for a pair of good cowboy boots, it's way more than this frugal girl likes to spend. The other day I happened to think about it, so I checked eBay, and they had one pair of them. And miracle of all miracles, they were in my size! I stalked the listing and won them! They were dirt cheap and had only been worn a couple of times. Obviously, that doesn't bother me at all.



{LOVE}

They make my heart go pitter-patter. I love the red/robin's egg blue color combo.

Not to be outdone, hubs got a pair at an antique store for dirt cheap. After some investigating, it turns out they are some pretty fancy schmancy vintage boots.



So all is good.

Wow,snow we got rain today. I stayed in also but got some things done that really needed some attention. Cool that you are still getting things from your garden.
Love the boots, how cool that you got them on ebay, they were meant to be yours.

So jealous of your snow. We were supposed to be getting that but it never happened. Just rain. Oh well :). Cute boots!!

We also feel into the 'rain' category, but apparently there were a few flakes mixed in. Enough to send everyone flying to the grocery store for no reason. Snow is fun. We just never get to play. *sigh*

I want snow! Enjoy it even if it was just a dusting.

We have most of our inside stuff up, but missing garland and what not.

I hope to get it all done this weekend as well, we shall see.

Those boots are gorgeous!

LOVE, love, love the boots...both pairs! I heart ebay...it is a fantastical (yes that's a word!) place to buy at "dirt cheap"! Congrats on your finds, and good luck w/ Mt Laundry. :)

Firstly I am jealous about the snow, it is darn hot here. Second, I think your little tomatoes are delightful. Oh and my lunch was great thanks for asking.

I LOVE your boots. They couldn't be any cuter. Now go and put your trees up, because I have been waiting to see them!
