On the Third Week of Christmas...


Dec 12: Listened to Christmas music

Dec 13: Listened to Sufjan Steven's Christmas album, went to the Georgetown Christmas Market, ate chestnuts roasted over an open fire (I didn't like them...Andrew sort of did), watched the Nightmare Before Christmas, started an advent that my mom sent us, learned about Christmas in Africa

Dec 14: Andrew and I took a trip to the mountains for the night...we walked around Breckenridge, looked at lights, went to a Christmas shoppe, looked at ice sculptures

Dec 15: Listened to Christmas music, colored Christmas coloring pages

Dec 16: Listened to Christmas music

Dec 17: Listened to Christmas music, present shopped, started wearing a pair of Christmas sox every day till Christmas (and will have to go until after Christmas!)

Dec 18: Listened to Christmas music, made presents, shipped presents

Dec 19: Listened to Christmas music, worked on homemade presents

I can't believe Christmas is less than a week away!! I also can't believe that I'm in Colorado and there is now snow, and it's not scheduled to snow by Christmas :(

On The Second Week of Christmas

This is what I did..

Dec 4: Listened to Christmas music, went to Andrew's choir Christmas concert, and watched some cheesy Christmas movie on abc.

Dec 5: Listened to Christmas music

Dec 6: Listened to Christmas music, put the ornaments on the tree, catalog shopped, store shopped, watched another cheesy Christmas movie

Dec 7: Listened to Christmas music, store shopped, watched part of a cheesy Christmas movie on Hallmark channel

Dec 8: Listened to Christmas music, finished decorating, wrapped presents

Dec 9-11: I forgot to write down what I did these days! But I worked all three days, so most likely all I fit in was Christmas music

The end of the 3rd week is almost here! Hope your house isn't as messy as mine, that you don't have as much shopping to do as I still have to do, and that your thighs don't hurt as much as mine do from snowboarding :)

Two of my favorite things about going to bed:

I get to use my awesome little lamp from Ikea

And I get to sleep in polka dotted sheets!

On The First Week of Christmas

If you know me at all, you know I loooovvvvveeee Christmas!

I love it so much I wanted to start Christmas decorating and preparing in October this year! But I held off and made myself decorate for fall and Thanksgiving, which was nice because we had people over for Thanksgiving this year.

So Christmas started for me right after Thanksgiving this year, and I am making sure I do something Christmas-y every day till Christmas (and it will probably go till at least New Year's) just to make sure I squeeze as much Christmas into December as I can!!

So far here is what I've done...

Nov 27: Listened to Christmas music, Shopped for Christmas presents
Nov 28: Listened to Christmas music
Nov 29: Listened to Christmas music, watched Elf, looked at Christmas lights
Nov 30: Listened to Christmas music, started decorating, online gift shopping
Dec 1: Listened to Christmas music, got our tree, decorated, put lights on the tree
Dec 2: Listened to Christmas music
Dec 3: Listened to Christmas music

Yes, listening to Christmas music will be listed probably every day. I love Christmas music and December is pretty much the only month that it's acceptable for me to listen to it every day.

I hope your Christmas season has gotten off to as good a start as mine!

Catching Up

I haven't really posted much of anything for awhile. I don't think I even finished doing what I wanted to do with my trip to Illinois in September.

Most of the problem is how many pictures I take!! I get behind on uploading and organizing them that I just don't get around to posting them.

So, I will be trying to catch up with my life on here over the next couple weeks, hopefully being all caught up by Christmas! :)
