Maybe I have been overwhelmed with my life… I am not really sure! This holiday season stuff really freaks me out. but I can’t believe that it’s been more than a week since I blogged. Where have I been? What have I been doing? All good questions. All I can say is that I think I have been busy! But I still feel like I have a lot to do. I was evaluating my to-do list, and it’s being whittled down… well, the work stuff is. “first we work, then we buy Christmas presents…” right? I haven’t even STARTED. Is that SCARY or what. There are people that are ALL DONE! Presents WRAPPED… UNDER the tree. I can SO not relate. Every year… I am telling you I am shopping on Christmas EVE. No wonder this isn’t my favorite holiday. I don’t know how to work the system… like making lists; shopping on-line to get the best prices; organizing receipts and keeping tallies of money spent. Usually, I don’t get into the spirit of spending until the end, then I just give in to racking up the credit cards… I really should give in earlier!
So I finally took some photos of the forest.
It’s so cute.
I love it.
I still really need pink tree skirts. I need like 4. I want pink velvet and tulle and white fur and the works… but you guessed it.. I haven’t gone to JoANNs to buy fabric… and there are no wrapped presents to hide the fact I don’t have skirts… and I have finally decided last night, that I want a crown for the top of the tippy top of the tallest tree… so I need to find something for that too!
I know something I did… I came up with my Christmas card! YAY! I now need to get a family photo and finish the letter that makes our family sound really smart and fun! (wink!) i will be showing it in my DEC newletter that will hopefully go out next week! it involves the holly mask, silver spray paint, polk a dot ribbon and this really cool new sticker that i am releasing at CHA winter….
Saturday I indulged myself a little and went to visit my family in UTAH. (dang it’s cold there… I am really sorry for all the people that live in such cold places). It was SO much fun to visit! And Capri got all of everyone’s attention, so she liked that! My dad is my CPA, and, well, it’s almost the end of the year, and time to think about taxes and stuff like that (yuck). So it was a legit trip! I have 2 favorite restaurants at home: Italian Village and Hires. We ate a both. So that made the tax talk all worth it! a little caloric therapy!
Ok… much left on the to-do list tonight!
Leaving for Minneapolis tomorrow and let’s see if you can guess who is making me dinner!!! I will blog from her HOUSE!
And speaking of COLD… I have NOTHING that can protect me from -7 wind chill…
