The first snow fall is always so pretty! I never complain about snow in December or January I love it. I love living in an area where the seasons change. My least favourite season is spring because it is usually still snowing or raining and by then I’m ready for sunny warm days. I was very excited to see the snowflakes falling on Saturday evening. I was at work so I had to drive home in it and the roads were terrible. I also was completely unprepared even though I knew it was calling for it. I did not have a scraper in my car and I didn’t even bring a hat or mitts. So at 11pm I was taking snow off my car with my bare hands. The kids were ecstatic when they woke up Sunday morning. They both went out to play in it and we were almost late for church because they were having so much fun(Jordan included) that they didn’t want to come in and get ready.
Wow, what a week! I worked every. single. day. this week. Wake me up on Monday…oh wait I work again this evening, tomorrow and on Sunday. Am I crazy…maybe a little bit! Things are still making me happy though, here they are for this week:
We’ve been busy buying gifts and now it is time to wrap them all! I often leave this task to Jordan a day or two before Christmas. I buy the presents he wraps. My man is an excellent wrapper! This year though he is working all the days leading up to Christmas and I just wanted it done! Especially the gifts for the kids. So I have been spending my evenings with wrapping paper.
I am 30….for the second time today! I am off to live it up. Treat yourself to a holiday latte today for me.
What a fun festive weekend we had over here! We really brought the Christmas spirit into our home! We drank eggnog, ate cookies, decorated some of the house, read Christmas books and watched Christmas movies. We really brought it and it was so much fun! This is why I love Christmas. It just brings so much joy and fun into our home!
Happy Friday!!! Who is going out shopping for all the deals today? I just got off from working a night shift but managed to stop by Old Navy for some $1 cozy socks. Other than that I am sleeping the rest of the morning so no crazy shopping happening here. I love being around the bustle though it is fun! It was a great week and Miss Charlie has today off so we are enjoying a long weekend with her. Here are some things making me happy lately:
November is the busiest month of the year around here. My goal each year to have ALL the Christmas shopping done by December 1st so in November I am doing the scramble that a lot of you save until December. Trust me it is just as painful but I just like to get it done and over with so I can enjoy the holidays. It has been a busy week of decorating for me. I have been decorating my own home, our church, and also prepping for an event next week. I have also been working each evening for a few hours. So today I decided I needed to “chill out!”
What a wonderful holiday filled weekend! We even got to see the Big Elf himself! November is always the busiest month of the year in our house. Busy in a good way though. We do all of our Christmas prep, shopping and decor in November. I try to be completely finished everything for December first that way I can sit back, relax, and enjoy holidays while also saying yes to all the festivities that come our way. I love being among the bustling crowds in December however I do not like to be IN them racing for that last gift.

It is no secret that I love my podcasts. If you do not listen to podcasts please, please, please try one today!!! I listen to them when I’m driving, doing chores around the house, and even in the shower. Jordan and I both are podcast fans. There are so many great ones out there and I find it way more enjoyable then tunes…unless it is Christmas tunes, haha. One of my favorite bloggers and author started a podcast recently and guys she has so much goodness to share! It is Stephanie May Wilson.
