Dear Zack, whoa, this past week has been CRAZY for the website! We were seriously working 18 hour days and posting deals non-stop! But it has definitely paid off! And this comment you posted on my fb? “If every day were like this, we’d be rich! Thanks for being the best co-worker I could ask for! ;)” Um, yes. I love you.
Dear Christmas decorations, this little house of ours is full of you, and I. LOVE. IT. Lights and trees and glitter everything everywhere?! Sign me up! Christmas decorating, I don’t know if you know, but it is sort of MY thing. Like, it’s just my thing, okay. I love it. It puts me in this very calm state, where it’s just me and the Christmas music and the boxes and boxes of glittery goodness, and I just start going and there is no stopping me. It’s great, really. I don’t think Zack minds too much.
Dear TSO, that was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. It was a really fun outing with my parents-in-law and definitely got me even more into the Christmas spirit (if that’s even possible?!)
Dear weekend, we’re headed up the hill on sunday to pick out my parent’s tree and decorate it! I’m so excited, I just love this tradition every year! We go to an actual tree lot (as opposed to the grocery store parking lot, not that there’s anything wrong with that! It’s where we are going to get ours) and everything just feels extra Christmas-y. :) I’ll be decorating the tree all by myself again (unless Santa’s little helpers decide to pitch in), and I am perfectly okay with that. It’s kind of a spiritual experience, you know? Just me, and the tree, and a box full of ornaments, and of course a mug of hot chocolate (with maybe a side of good ol’ jack to help me out) and some Perry Como on the speakers. Ahh, yes. Zen.
Dear Christmas movies, I love you so so so much. Way better than Halloween movies. So far, we’ve watched Home Alone and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. “His heart grew three sizes that day” had my own heart all warm and fuzzy. Both got me slightly emotional. I’m such a girl. But really, don’t you just love Christmas movies? I’m so excited to watch lots more, including my personal favorites “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “A Christmas Story,” and DUH, “Christmas Vacation.” What’s your favorite?
Dear Batman (the cat), you are REALLY good at creeping in the background of photos. Just sayin’. It does make for quite a bit of entertainment once I load the photos to my computer and am perusing them. Case in point:
