Hello, Christmas, I Love You

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Hey there Wednesday! So nice to see you again...I thought this week was going to be a "slower than usual" one, though it seems with the holidays fast approaching, there is no time to sit down and take a little breather...
So much to report...Christmas blessings for so many of my friends--another one of my wonderful friends got engaged last night so a big congrats to Candice! I know she is over the moon excited and I can't wait to hear all about it when we celebrate tonight. I think next year is gradually shifting from the year of the baby back to the year of the wedding...love is in the air!
Speaking of Christmas blessings, I was taking a look at all of the holiday cards we received from family and friends this year and it just made my heart melt thinking of how good God has been to so many of us...really makes me thankful for the exciting things that have transpired in 2011--weddings, babies, new homes, career changes, moves, etc--who knows what is in store for 2012!
All this baby stuff is setting in--quickly approaching, yet still so much to get accomplished. I came home the other night to our first big baby gift... the car seat! My how I get excited for the craziest things these days. Not going to lie though--it totally freaked me out--like a real car seat for Caroline to sit in...weird!
Last night I finished my wrapping and packing workshop for all of our Christmas gifts...boy does that feel good to have off my plate. Here is a little sneak peak at this year's "theme"--all in rich reds, creams, moss green, and gold--love the end result!

Alright, enough mindless chatter for today...this lady has multiple deadlines to meet so I best get back at it! Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday--only 4 days until Christmas--eeekkk!
