Actually it's less than a week until Christmas! I can't believe it. I'm more shocked that I'll turn 28 next week. What!? I am TWO years away from 30. I still feel 19 half the time :)
It's been a good week, here's what I've been up to...
Matt and I decided to read the entire Bible cover to cover. Um... I'm a little nervous for Numbers, but where there's a will there's a way, right? In the new year I'm planning on memorizing a piece of scripture each month, and this is getting me in the mood to do that. We're right to the part about Abraham and Sarah. After seeing Exodus and watching Women of the Bible and The Red Tent on TV I'm hankering for an Old Testament refresher. So much good in there...
My stepdad's annual Christmas family gathering is tomorrow. For the past few years I've gone with homemade treats as gifts. This year I baked up an anise flavored biscotti (thank you, Betty Crocker!) and wrapped with these darling treat bags from Papersource. It's just not the holidays without a trip to the Uptown Papersource :)
Target had candles on sale... yay! I love these mini ones because they are easy to fit in smaller spaces like bathrooms and windowsills. I burned through a pine scented one in days, when you have a fake tree it's a necessary purchase ;)
I did not forget about my Project Life album... but it did take me until today to unwrap the last four boxes of my monthly Studio Calico kits. Oops! I am excited to get going with that.
Speaking of Project Life, I printed nearly 100 4x6 photos from Shutterfly. Honestly, I was blown away by the printing job. Usually I use my professional lab, but since I needed so many I figured it might be smarter to go with Shutterfly. Very happy with them :)
Remember when I mentioned Jane, the discount shopping site? I finally hung the pretty banner I purchased from there a while ago. I think it looks perfect on Matt's pull up bar :D
I didn't expect two kitty cats to love the tree skirt I created, but they do. Julius sits under it and sometimes licks the fur. So cute!
Happy less-than-one-week-till-xmas to you, readers :)
