Weekend Follies

Up until last year - I have always been a last minute Christmas shopper. I always put off all of my shopping until the week before Christmas. I remember one year it snowed up until 2 days before Christmas and I ran to the mall and did ALL of my shopping in 2 hours. Yikes! I decided last year that I couldn't enjoy the season because I was too busy stressing about getting gifts. So I started in the summer buying a little at a time. Not only did it make Christmas more fun but it was great for our budget as well!
So I've been 90% done since about October but I went last night and finished the rest. I had planned to do it today but it's cold and possibly going to snow at any minute so I thought today would be a great lay around in the house in your PJ's kind of day instead.
I love our mall - the Promenade. It's an out doors mall and it is so fun at Christmas with the decorations and music playing and it's cold. I added to my experience by stopping at Starbucks for another caramel apple spice. MMMMM!!!!
And today - this is what I'm doing. I hate wrapping gifts so I put it off to the last possible minute. But it's nice to be inside on a cold day - in my PJ's and watching Lifetime Christmas movies! :-) Dawson is enjoying supervising.
Scott left to go deer hunting in L.A. on Thursday and he's on his way back now. I hope he can beat the snow or at least make it home! I'm baby sitting Emily tonight so her parents can go to a Christmas party! I'm sure we'll have a great time together!

I am not sure how I found your blog but I am a big blogger myself and really enjoy reading yours. You and your hubby are so cute and I will keep you all in my prayers so that you may become parents one day soon. We have been through your journey and are now blessed with 4 year old triplets. God Bless you both. Kirstin

So it's snowing there!?! I wish it would here too. I don't like wrapping presents either--I don't like getting all the stuff out to use.

I love to wrap presents! I space it out and wrap 1-2 a day til they're done. That's one of my favorite parts of Christmas! I figured out how to post more than 5 pictures, but it took all day. I need your help! :)

So much for our snow... It didn't last long in Fayetteville!! I love little Dawson! He is such a good helper! I got out to Old Navy today, but that was it. Did you go to Sephora? : )

I've put all my shopping off until the last minute so I'm kind of stressing...I think I'm winding it down though!
I love Lifetime Christmas movies!! They're the best, but if Kirk's home he always makes me change them...not a big fan!
Everytime you mention that Starbucks drink I start to crave it! I've gotta get one tomorrow!

Sounds wonderful! I wish it would snow here:-) I always wait and wrap everything Christmas Eve, but I am determined to get it done early this year...maybe tomorrow?
(Thanks for leaving the birthday wishes for Cassidy!)

Is the Promenade new? Since like 2000 new? I'm glad you got all your shopping done early. I'm making everyone gifts this year...so we'll see how that goes! There's nothing in our city to buy anyway...except really good fresh vegetables!

So did you get some snow?? I'd send you some if I could.

Yay for you getting your gifts bought and wrapped. I'm getting there...slowly but surely!
