Every year it happens to me.. December hits and before you know it there’s a week left before Christmas and the gift checklist isn’t even close to being done. So this year I made sure that was my priority and that way I can focus on what I really love about the holidays - decorating. The smell of spruce, Christmas lights and tree shopping, nothing beats this time of year. Since I wasn’t able to get a tree last week with the craziness of Black Friday, I’m making it a goal to get one tomorrow. I even started making some ornaments! I’m really looking forward to the weekend and I hope you guys have some fun things planned!

Hey guys! I hope you had a relaxing, food-filled last few days and are ready to get back into that work grind. I’m definitely starting my week with some more shopping to make the most of these crazy sales. Cyber Monday starts in about an hour and I’ve got my eye on a few things. There are many other sales out there but these are the items I’m really looking forward to. I hope you guys get all that you want and happy shopping!

I’ve never really celebrated Thanksgiving. Or at least really appreciated the true meaning behind it. But this year is different. There were so many unexpected things that happened this year and I thought that for once I’d like to actually acknowledge how much positive energy its brought into my life. My family, friends, blog, job and everything else have all grown exponentially than what I could have ever imagined for myself when 2013 just started. I’m also really thankful for you guys who come in here all the time to see whats up and just show that you’re there. On less serious note, I’m hosting our family dinner later on tonight! There’s just three of us but it’s definitely a big step for me.
I hope you’re all having a great time with your friends and loved ones. And from my little family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
