T-Giving, & Christmas Festivites

Happy Wednesday friends --- you've made it half way through the week! I hope everyone had a vwonderful Thanksgiving, & I hope you stuffed your faces... I sure did. :) This is a little late, blah blah. I won't pull the whole, "I've been busy!" on y'all. ;)

I'll explain with pictures....

I mainly loved on my niece... she makes my heart swell!!

And of course I ate...& ate... & ate.... & ate..... {you get the picture}

We cannot wait to go home for Christmas -- the countdown begins!!

So, I have this problem every Holiday season. I lit.er.ally get anxiety about not being able to squeeze in every ounce of Christmas goodness. Like, we haven't done Gingerbread houses yet!! Oh my! Or... I haven't baked enough this season. Or... Are there enough lights on the tree?! Do my dogs know it's Christmas time?! We HAVE to look at Christmas lights! I need to paint my nails all the Holiday colors! Christmas cards! And don't even get me started on all the presents I want to buy...

It's pretty ridiculous. I'm really trying to settle myself... & remember 1. Jesus is the reason for the season & 2. I will make it all happen, because I do every year. :)

A couple things I have been doing...

{drinking plenty of the Starbucks Christmas coffee's}

{sitting my by fire, wearing these Bath & Body Works house shoes, & watching all my favorite Christmas movies!}

::How the Grinch Stole Christmas::
::Serendipity::
::Home Alone 1 & 2::
::Miracle on 34th Street::
::New in Town::
::Four Christmas'::

...just to name a few

And of course, drinking apple cider & "chuddling" with this boy!

And these pups...

Did anyone watch the Victoria Secret Fashion show night?? I did... with a Dr. Pepper in one hand, & ice-cream in the other.

Hehe :)

I feel the exact same way about trying to fit all the holiday "cheer" & activities in! I don't even have my tree up yet! :0 It's going up this weekend but, I feel like I can't even begin to join in on all the fun until it is up! STRESSFUL! LOL!
