Does anyone else spend November willing time to hurry up so we can get to December?  Then, it finally comes and you spend the month wanting it to SLOW DOWN because it goes by so quickly?  I can’t believe Christmas is in less than three weeks!  We are in full blown celebration mode in my house right now and I love it!  Every night we watch another holiday movie.  We are decorating and wrapping and baking.  It’s amazing!

We finally got to put up our tree this past weekend!  I have been itching to get it set up since Thanksgiving but we get a real one and I don’t like to get it too early for fear of it drying out.  This was our second year with cats.  Last year was our first but we only had Jeter.  Continue reading

Gift Wrap Tutorial: How To Make An Envelope Pocket #WrapGiveRepeat

Earlier in the week I mentioned that I like to get a head start on Christmas.  I don’t do well under pressure and if I leave things until the last minute I ruin all the holiday magic by stressing myself out and worrying.  I like to take my time, select my gifts and wrap them with care.  I also like to save money and in my experience the best time to get good deals on holiday shopping is in November (especially on Black Friday).  I am already almost done with my Christmas list (aside from the things I plan to buy on the 25th) and I have even begun wrapping.
