Thanksgiving, Moving and Some Black Friday Deals

No, we're not moving, but we did help Dylan move into his new apartment. You probably remember me talking about how he landed his dream job HERE. After that, things moved pretty quickly. We looked at apartments one weekend, then a week later, he started his new job, then the next week we moved him into his new place. That's pretty much why I haven't been on here lately. It's a lot of work to move one of your kids out and into their own place. All fun stuff (like furniture shopping) but tiring just the same. :) Because of all this, I just can't seem to keep up with the blog as much as Instagram. I share a lot more on there @texasdecor. It's just faster and more convenient. 

But I did want to get on here and share some pics, so here we go...

First up, some Black Friday deals (on Saturday~lol) I had a very successful shopping trip today! I got the last tree collar at Michael's for only $16! A cute basket for the coffee table to hold the remote and coasters (I'm using a Christmas basket now and the tray I was using is now in the guest room, hiding the router) It's like musical decor around here.

You get a sneak peek at my new snowball garland too! 

I also got some cinnamon scented pinecones for the foyer basket, fall plates and napkins on clearance for $1, Oprah's Favorite Things issue (can't wait to enjoy that with a cup of coffee later this week!) Then I picked up a few nights worth of Meal Simple dinners from HEB. 

My simple Thanksgiving tablescape...

 I always like to share my tablescapes on here so I can look back in the years to come to get ideas. 

Every time we visit Dylan, we HAVE to stop at Buc-ee's because they have real kolaches. This Czech girl knows her kolaches, y'all. And they MUST have crumblies on top to be considered real. ;)

And so what if a chewy pecan praline and cup of coffee also landed in my hands. Not my fault. And P.S. I love Dylan's granite counters! His floors are a nice grey wood too.  

So since Dylan moved out, we're turning his room into a guest room. Here's a little sneak peek...

Obviously I'm going with a pink girly theme in here, ha! 

Love the detail on the shams and the polka dot pillowcases...

I'm loving the gold dots and flecks on these throws...

These throws are so soft too! Every guest room needs a couple of soft throws, am I right? 

But before we get too far, I need to fill all the holes in the walls from the NASCAR/Formula 1 "decor" and then slap on a fresh coat of paint...

My all time favorite wall paint is SW Duration in Matte finish. It's what we have in our entire house. And P.S. all SW paints and stains are on sale 30% off until November 30! (Go to their website to get the coupon)

Scored this cute mirror to hang above the dresser in the guest room...

And that's about it for now. I'll be sure and share the room when it's all finished. I can't wait to see it all pulled together!



  1. Love what you are doing with the guest room. So pretty. It is a lot of work to help the kids move into their first place. I am so happy Dylan is doing so well with the new job and also starting out on his own. Hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous. Your table looked really pretty. Now onto the fast pace days of Christmas. Enjoy every minute.

  2. What a fun project! I love the colors and bedding you chose for your guest room. It's sad when the kids move out...redecorating makes it a little easier to swallow. I hope he's enjoying his new place. Hugs!
