It's been way too long since I've written anything of substantial element. There's so many things to write about, but how do I choose? I feel like it will just all come out as word vomit, no matter how hard I try. So here it goes.
-Why are holiday weekends always so amazingly glorious, only to be ripped right out of your hands so fast? It's like, you blink and it's Monday morning, as if that wonderful, awesome, fun-filled weekend was just a tiny little blip in this thing called life. Dramatic much? I think not.
-I have my Winter Bucket List printable almost done for you, but my hubby is helping me out by tweaking it a bit. I've seen other bucket lists out there on Pinterest already, but I've gotten a few emails this week and tweets asking about me offering it/wondering when it will be coming. So--if you already have one? No big deal. But I'll be offering you one sometime this week I hope. So check back.
a sneak peek:
-The house is all decorated for Christmas, and for some reason, this year? It was NO big deal. Last year I remember hating it. I literally despised every pine needle that fell from our fake tree, and all the decor, and all the clean up, and the boxes, oh the boxes. But this year it was just easy, and quick. And the house looks all twinkly and sparkly. And hearing my toddler say "Pretty Tee" (pretty tree) is so.damn.cute. Surprisingly enough? She isn't really messing with the tree. Cross your fingers.
-Declan and I ventured out for Black Friday (which is a whole post in and of itself) with a goal of getting the vacuum we wanted. Yep. We've reached our pinnacle "We're Old" moment. Going out for a friggin' vacuum. But whatever. My mom & dad kept Emeline overnight, so we spent a few hours sitting in the cold, drinking coffee, under a blanket, wrapped around the side of the local Target. And then we got in there, and you better believe we got ourselves our most-wanted Dyson....for $150 off plus my 5% red card discount. Oh yea, buddy. And? It was worth it. We were out of there by 12:13am.
-My sweet girl got her first stomach bug this weekend, and honest to goodness, it was so sad. She sat on the couch next to me watching Elf with her little barf bucket. Thankfully, it was short lived, because within about six hours she seemed good as new again.
-The rest of the weekend she just seemed like such a big girl to me, I couldn't even stand it. Yes, I'm enamored by this child on a daily basis. I can't help it.
-Lastly, I got
suckered invited to participate in a children's book exchange. I'm sure a ton of you have heard of it by now, but basically, you send one book, mail out the information to six of your friends, and then your child should receive 36 books free. If it works out? It's amazing. So, I need SIX people who are willing to participate (which means purchasing & sending one book, but with hopes of receiving a ton back for your kid). If you want to? Let me know in the comments & leave your email. Ok? It should be fun. I hope. If it works, you know. ;) ***I got all 6 participants. Thank you!!
Okay. So, there you have it. A bunch of word vomit.
Happy Monday, friends.
