Stuff

Not much.....just a bit.

*Starting Cutting for Stone tonight. So excited.

*Shannon just revealed a year later that she purchased my blog makeover last year. She's denied it over and over again and I was left wondering for 12 months. Today, I received a custom made Starbucks gift card from her with a caricature of me holding a camera on the beach, coffee in hand and requesting a Cranberry Bliss Bar. Shannon = best gift giver ever.

*I accomplished things today that most people don't during the entire Christmas season, including.......shopping, wrapping, more shopping, organizing, shuffling kids, cooking, cleaning, more shopping, shipping, and more. It's 8pm and I'm about to get in bed.

*Disneyland tomorrow! Magical, Christmasy, light filled Disneyland. It snows there. Did you know? Certain parts of the park make snow and fill the air. I cannot wait.

*And, speaking of snow......how do you like this little gem?


My photographer-turned-friend's-sister made it for me.

It's very peaceful with them in there, no? So quiet. Shhhh......

9 days bloggies! What do you have left? Get on it!

I'm LOVIN' that snow globe! Very cute.

At least you've got one nice friend. Good for you.

How do you have the time and energy to keep changing your headers? Of course they're all super cute and I hate that.

That picture of your kids goin' crazy is TOOOOOO funny. I'm confused about the Shannon story--she revealed that she purchased a blog fairy makeover but you hadn't known? Either way, yay for nine days till Christmas!

9 days?! Don't remind me! I still have shopping and baking to do! It sounds like you had a productive day!

Love the snow globe! The picture is a hoot!

Your three are going to love that pic when they get older.

You have to try Starbuck's caramel brulee latte. They're seasonal, so you have to try before they're gone. Yum.

I am completely done with all Christmas prep, and it feels like a million dollars!

That snow globe is cute. Shannon is an awesome friend awesome. I want a personalized starbucks gift card!! What a cool idea. I am jealous of your Disneyland trips. You have been a busy elf.

Claire - I received an anonymous gift last year for a blog makeover. Shannon and I are close friends and she is totally someone who would do this.....so I assumed it was her.....she denied it!

Just fessed up.

Shannon said...

That snow globe is so cute:) So fun catching up on your sweet fam!

I have way too much to do before the big day but am enjoying my down time, catching up on blogs that I miss, while not editing photos (unless they have my daughter in them:)!!!

How how HOW have I let time get away from me like this?

Frickness is all I have to say.

I wish I could put my kids in a slow globe already and we've only been up for 30 minutes. And Brandon's working late tonight. We will definitely be creating something today, once I finally wake up, to kill time. Is it weird that I miss you like we used to hang out all the time. (I have about 5 people I'd love to do that with today.) Just one of those days you want an old friend to hang out with while the kiddos go at it. Thankfully I have new friends I can do that with.

That pic of the punks is one of my faves ever...
And sweet baby jesus is freakin' right!!!! Hann and I tried those cranberry bliss bars at Starbs. There were no words. Magical. How the hell did I not discover these treats til now?!?!

And keep an eye peeled on your mailbox. We sent out a box full of goodies for the punks today.... can't wait to hear what they think of the loot!!
