Sometimes you have to treat yourself, ya know?
I found this guy at Half Priced Books about a month ago. I didn't buy him then but I kept thinking "I just love that goofy thing." I went back last week and he was still there. I snatched him up without the least bit of buyer's pause or remorse. He is occupying a very important place of real estate on my desk. I love him.
He even has accessories! Eeee! Love it, truly.
Some people might have dismissed this chotchkie as trash but I love the King and his music makes me happy. (Yes, I have been to Graceland, and loved it too. I am hoping to take the family there someday.) I figured a teeny bust of him would also make me happy. It does. As goofy as it is.
I forgot to post my lists yesterday. Oops, told you, October is doing a number on me.
my things to do this week:
catch up all laundry and ironing (ick, again!)
catch up coupon sorting and filing
write thank you notes for Parker's birthday gifts
my menus for this week:
tortellini (again, I'm on a roll!)
tacos (kids' request)
homemade pizza (another kids' request)
navy bean soup and cornbread (just like grandma used to make)
veggie frittata and biscuits
sausage and white bean stew and bread*
baked chicken, rice and roasted broccoli
*My mom gave me her big bread maker since she doesn't use it. I am hoping to try it out this week. The one I have currently makes a teeny half loaf. We are definitely ready to upgrade to the bigger model.
