I take it back.

Was it just yesterday that I said it was good to be home? Because I'd like to take that back now.

My hallway looks like this:


And there are still 2 more suitcases to unload.

My refrigerator looks like this:


There are 2 categories of food in there: condiment or expired.
Well, maybe there is a third category: expired condiment

After church I was able to swing by the store for a few essentials until I make the big trip to get groceries. I got milk, bread, and potatoes.
Yes, potatoes. I can't pass up a good deal. And this 10lb bag of potatoes...


...was 99 cents. I'm definitely back in Idaho!

I also now realize that many of my packing woes were due to my aforementioned inability to pass up a good deal. My suitcase was full of purchases that weren't exactly necessary.
Like these boots for Alex.


I saw them on clearance at Marshall's and thought they were adorable. So I got them, despite the fact that they are a full 3 sizes too big for her. She will love them when she's 8!

Oh, and these Nine West heels for me.


When I bought them I thought they were charcoal gray.
Didn't realize until I took this picture that they are decidedly olive green in good light.
So I will wear them only on cloudy days. And if you happen to see me wearing them, please complement me on my lovely gray heels. Thank you.

Now I shall go and remove my monkeys from the bathtub, where they seem to be displacing water outside of the tub at an alarming rate. Then I shall snuggle up in my bed with the season premier of The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love.
A perfectly cheesy title for a perfectly cheesy show.

Happy Sunday night!

I cannot walk in heels. So I do not own any. I am already impressed. Did you do your 8 minute abs? I am about to!

Ohhhhhh... I would not have been able to pass up those boots either! Makes me want to try and find a pair! Good luck getting settled back in!
