What.a.week. Government shutdown, eh? How about them apples?! All I have to say is, HA! and WHAT???

That’s all. I’m not pointing fingers at anyone…

Anywho. Ever feel like you overdo it? I did something that I should never do when I feel a bit stressed out… 

I went to Target. Retail therapy called and she said Target was the place to be…so I listened. I came home with new jeans, new shirts, new dress, new shoes… Looks like my husband will renew me when that Amex bill gets here. 😀

So, that’s one way of overdoing it. Another way of overdoing it is by making everything Loaded Baked Potatoes.

Look in the archives – you’ll see what I mean. We have Loaded Baked Potato Rounds, Loaded Baked Potato Bites, and here we are today, about to share a Loaded Baked Potato Casserole. Are you going to complain? Don’t. This is really good stuff. Like, reaaaalllllyyyy.

For someone who almost exclusively wants to eat chicken salads and chocolate, I am kinda surprised at myself for making all these potaytah dishes. It might have something to do with buttering-up the hubs, Goce. I’m subconsciously trying to make it all-good before that bill gets here. There’s also a new living room set on that same credit card… Joss & Main pulled me in – I couldn’t say NO!

By the ways, neither Target nor Joss & Main even know me – this is not sponsored by them – I’m just sharing my addictions. Which are not so bad… In fact, I love ’em!

I can’t even describe how excited I was when the bedroom set arrived from there! Oh my gosh… my husband thought we won the lottery! Let’s not get into that because this post will be all about linens, drapes, tufted furniture, and rustic floors!
