A Day of Friendship

My Monday started off at 5:45 am. If you know me I am NOT a morning person by any means but I am trying to be. Savannah has slept three nights in a row till about 6 am so I have been very thankful for that. I normally just slug around and get the boys ready for school. Today I had a skip in my step because I knew it was going to be a busy day. No time for slouching around today.
Today my friend Kele and I ( note that is not us!;) ) started on our walking goal for the month. We want to walk at least 40 miles a month. If we continue on like we did today we will log over 55 I think she said. That is only walking three days a week! I think we walked 5 miles in an hour which I think was pretty good.

After walking I quickly got ready and met up with my friend Janese for whom I had met out at the cottage when I helped out there. 
We walked around HomeGoods and saw lots of eye candy like this bird cloche! It was $30 and I didn't need one so it staid. I am sure it will find a loving home quickly though.
These silver ones I think would be pretty during the holidays. They were only $12.99 each.
I saw these beautiful white sheets in queen size. I did not need them though I was tempted at the $29.99 price.
I LOVED this old world map bulletin board. It was $49.99 and nice and heavy. A good deal I thought for something so large. If hubby had not just gotten a Masters Golf picture for the office this would probably have jumped in my cart.
I also fell head over heels for this beyond amazing clock. It was HUGE and just $49.99. I really really wanted it but kept reminding myself about Round Top. 
After HomeGoods we had lunch at Panera and I had the yummiest Caesar salad ever!! Can y'all believe I had never been to Panera before!? I enjoyed it so much I am meeting another friend there for lunch on Friday.

So even though I am plum wore out today has been a very good day. I am thankful for all of my friendships!


  1. I love the idea of walking so many miles per month. My friend and I walk 3-4 days a week. Setting a goal is a great idea. Thanks.

  2. Good for you-Walking and salads. Yep...we have Panera's here, too. xo Diana

  3. My mom has been walking for over 40 years and walks 4 miles per hour. I can't keep up with her! So yes, you did good! Sometimes it's so hard to pass up those great HG deals. I'm proud of you! :)

  4. Great job on the walking, I think it's so much more fun with a friend.

  5. Thank goodness you are getting sleep, it makes life go so much smoother. I just love Panera too. I am doing Weight Watchers and their salads are all listed on their website and you can take off ingrediates and the site gives you all the nutrional info. It sounds like you had a wonderful day.

  6. Yeah, good goals! I'm a firm believer that we have to set reasonable goals for ourselves or we will just give up. Our TJ Maxx/Home Goods is my favorite place to treasure hunt. :)

    Panera? Oh how I wish we had a Panera. Love that place.

  7. Just love HomeGoods...sounds like you had a great day out with friends!!
