Please Excuse My Absence!

So, I've been thinking of things I want to write about, but this month has been crazy busy! Most of December on the blog has just been posts of item features and the Feature Friday posts because I wanted to keep something going through the month of December when I knew this would get hectic! But I'm trying to leave actual written content posts when I can!

Well, let me update you -

Feature Friday - Christmas Is In The Air Part 3!

Well, there is only 4 more days until Christmas! How busy is your Christmas every year? Ours is pretty booked - on Christmas Eve we have Christmas with my husband's family during the day, and at night we go and celebrate with my family. Then we head home, get some sleep (maybe) and start the next morning. A Christmas gathering at 10, 12, and 2ish. We usually get there around 2:30 or so. We try not to rush too much because it's the holidays and it's all about spending time with family, so we try to visit as much as possible, and then head to the next family gathering! Should be fun this year with an almost-2-year-old and a newborn.

Now, I know it's a bit late in the season to buy things online and have them in time for Christmas, but I wanted to continue on with the Christmas Is In The Air feature - so for this Friday, we are featuring Printables! You can purchase them and print them right from the luxury of your own home. Check them out, especially if you are hosting a gathering, because they are sure to make your gathering look just a little more festive!

End of the World?

Tomorrow is supposedly the end of the world.. How will we be spending our day?

Well, my husband will be going off to work, and I will be taking care of 2 cute little munchkins :) Then, when my husband gets home, he will also spend his time with 2 cute little munchkins. Some Christmas present making might be happening and some point during the night (no, all the presents are still not done lol) and then eventually, the crazy night time routine will begin!

Do you think the world will end?? And, how will you be spending your day??

Winter Wonderland Wednesday!

Although I am not a big fan of the snow, or the cold, I do enjoy it being white on Christmas! So today I decided to find some items that reminded me of a Winter Wonderland!

Feature Friday - Christmas Is In The Air Part 2!

Only 11 more day's until Christmas! Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Or have you even started Christmas Shopping yet? When I was younger (about 16 or 17) I loved heading out on Christmas Eve for shopping! Buying those last minute things, because my family gets together and exchanges gifts on Christmas Eve. It's always been a little tradition. Family presents on Christmas Eve, and then Santa came in the morning! It was always so busy and chaotic shopping on Christmas Eve though! That's why I loved it! Usually I had all the presents already bought for my family members, but I would go out and buy our dog some presents. Usually some tennis balls, and a bone or something she could eat. :)

Anyways, this Friday we continue on with "Christmas Is In The Air"! If you love one of the pictures - go ahead and click them and it will take you directly to the listing on Etsy! (It will open up in a new window.)
