such great heights.

First, the Office last night was amazing. Seriously one of the funniest episodes. I thought I was going to die from laughing watching Dwight try to destroy the stroller. And the ending with Jim and Pam.... *melt*

Second, I spent $1300 on my lunch break today. Yep, I really did. Met the hubs at Lowes and we dropped $1300 on shingles. That's what we'll be doing this weekend.... putting a new roof on our house.

We had plans to head to Iowa City and tailgate for the Iowa vs. Wisconsin game tomorrow {GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!} but being the "responsible" homeowners that we are, we decided that it was more important to take advantage of our last free weekend until mid-November and get this damn roof done! It will be so nice once we can check that off of our list though. Here the look we are going for in the end... although a more butter yellow than this:

We are planning to do the siding in the Spring and then we should be golden {literally}.

And BONUS-- Lowe's had a promotion, for a $100 gift card for spending $400! Lucky for us, our cahsier was amazing, and he scored us two $100 gift's since we were spending so much! SCORE! $200 to Lowe's.. will come in very handy for siding next Spring... OR Christmas presents??? Maybe?? :)

I'm currently in chapter 7 of New Moon and still really undecided on how I feel about it. So far it doesn't even compare to Twilight {which was beyond amazing} but I'm so interested in what will happen that I can't stop reading. I hope it turns around soon....

So there's my weekend for you. Roofing with reading in between. :) Hopefully I will have a fantastic before and after for you on Monday! ENJOY.
