Tonight I decorated my tree. Amy bought this tree for me a few years back (one of the best gifts I was ever given). I think she got it at Big Lots. I like it for the most part. The only thing that is annoying about it is that it tilts forward some on top. I had to use invisible fishing wire to keep it even on top. Noone would prob. notice. Just me.
I decided not to put up my other white tree. It is just too much and I don’t really have a great spot for it. Last year I put it up in my bedroom, but I only ever go in there to sleep and I never would get to appreciate it. I do love it in all its retro glory, but I don’t feel in the mood to mess with it. I did put my other décor out…
I love the holidays. I can’t wait to wrap some gifts. I did quite a bit of shopping this weekend. For those of you in LEX, Gordmans is a great new store. Spent over $60 dollars in there tonight. It kinda reminds me of a Fashion Shop and Mr. B’s. together and a little bit of Goody’s. It’s much nicer looks-wise than a Marshalls, which I have heard it compared to. It’s not junky like they are. I also bought a black hat (faux wool, I’m sure) at Rue 21 ETC. I’m excited about it. I don’t know what the style is called. Kinda like the kind Tiny Tim would wear. Do you know what I’m talking about?
I visited with Amy Friday night and early yesterday. Here’s a picture of her little girl, Madison. She is such a ham. She has the most unique crawl of any baby I’ve seen (she uses one leg to push the rest of her body forward). Too cute.
I got to also visit with my niece, Taylor. She spent the night at my mom’s all by herself (without her brother, Brock). Then the next day, she visited my sister, Cynthia, and spent the day with her by herself. She is 5 and so grown up. I’m very proud of her. I’m also excited to see that she has crafty tendancies (she loves to color and cut and paste). We made snowflakes out of tissue paper and attached them to the windows for the holidays. She can craft for hours like me.
Well, gotta get back to the daily grind. Work shmirk. I’m not looking forward to it, but I guess it is a fact of life.
