Thursday Ramblings

Happy Thursday.  Or Happy "Not Quite Friday," as I like to say.  

{1}  We have a babysitter this weekend.  Not one night, but TWO nights.  Friday night is a charity banquet- for which my outfit plans have completely been derailed thanks to the 39 degree high we have on Friday.  Seriously?  This is Texas.  Get it together, Mother Nature.  You have been a hot mess lately.  And Saturday is an adult only birthday party.  The BUBs are gonna party it up.  I may stay up past 9 p.m., y'all.  #MrsBUBGoneWild

{2} I'm in the midst of a mad dash to decorate our mantel.  We have such a gorgeous mantel and I found some great items at Hobby Lobby, but I know I'm not done so I'm not sure how to arrange them in the meantime.

Obviously, we'll get candles for the holders on there.  I reused those elsewhere.  And I'll remove stickers from everything.

{3} I'm also on a mission to find a wingback chair to go to the right of the fireplace.  I've found a couple, but they're not exactly what I want and freaking expensive.  And I've read about a hundred tutorials on reupholstering those on my own and decided maybe not.

{4}  I  have a mini Life With the BUBs for you here:

Me:  I got contacted for a product review on an Aquafarm!  Plants live on top and a fish lives on bottom.
Mr. BUB: You cannot get anything that could die.  Also, we have a 20 lb cat.
Me:  You ruin all the joy in the world.
Mr. BUB (a few minutes later): I want a new gun.
Me: Well, I want an Aquafarm.  I guess we can't all get what we want, can we?
