Fally weekend

It's been a while since I posted, so I thought I'd grace the internet with an entry about my weekend...

Friday night, while the Millers were at the SHS game for Nate's reunion weekend, I sat at home bored, and looked though old yearbooks reminiscing.

Five minutes later, still bored...I forced Dave to take me to Target so we could replace the mini-blinds that the cat decided didn't need to be hanging in the window any longer. She was high on kitty crack and decided to chew on the string and then run away quickly with the string still in her mouth. The bracket holding up the blinds came crashing down and little pieces of plastic went flying all over! She's still in the dog/cathouse.

Anyways, apparently plantation blinds are the preferred window covering of Target shoppers, so there were no blinds to choose from. I thought seriously about transitioning to the new version, but then added in my head how many windows I would need to redo, and decided against it :)

Wal-mart was a sure bet for mini-blinds, but the crowd, traffic, and general dirtiness made it almost unbearable, but mission accomplished. To top it off, when I got home and tried to install said blinds, I realized I had measured wrong (twice) and now I have to go back to exchange them! I'm putting that off.

Saturday was the Frog Level Fall Festival - and as you can see from the quality of the website, it's kind of a big deal. We picked up some Brunswick Stew, looked at the vendors (one was giving away free water and balked when we declined her offer), and paid $1 for an Obama bumper sticker because they didn't have any yard signs.

Then I came home and took a nap under my fluffy down comforter. I love fall weekends...
