Five on Friday

Hello my friends!  We’ve made it through the week, and I finally feel like I’m back in the groove after Thanksgiving, just in time for the weekend, haha!  Here are five random fun things I’m sharing today: Anyone else’s elves coming tomorrow morning??  I know some of you overachievers have been elf-on-the-shelfing since the day after Thanksgiving, but we always kick it off with our elves, Noodles, Sprinkles, and Sparkles, on December 1st.  I always start out really excited with[Read more]

Christmas (Cards!) in July with Basic Invite

You might say that I’m a procrastinator.  I love a good deadline, have no problems staying up late to get projects done, and actually often do the best work when I’m under a bit of pressure.  BUT, for about five years running now, come December 1st, I am rushing to create our family’s Christmas Cards.  I am down to the wire, rushing shipping, and licking stamps (okay, not licking stamps, sticking stamps) in the post office lobby to ship the cards out[Read more]

My Christmas Lesson

Our holiday season was very busy this year.  We were gone a lot, we had a lot of obligations.  We had holiday parties, LOTS of work, we bought gifts, we did this, we did that, we celebrated, we were here, there, and everywhere, and up to our elbows in Christmas cheer.  It was fun, and there were jingle bells, and Christmas cookies, and twinkly lights, but man, did I overdo it.  And it all[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  Can you believe that Christmas is TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY??  **Cue stress and anxiety levels to skyrocket.**  This season is flying by unlike any year in the past.  I am trying my very best to savor it and slow down a bit, but it’s SO HARD.  But we did have our first family Christmas with the Luton side this past weekend, and we were able to relax and just hang out with family, and let the kids play[Read more]
