Sunday night planning sesh this week includes making lists for a thanksgiving meal we are hosting one day after Thanksgiving day, ingredients for a dessert I'm bringing for the actual Thanksgiving Day feast, and food/stuff for a Ninja Turtles birthday party just one day after it all. And regular grocery shopping.
And another list for things to get done around the house. First up: get the foyer finished. It's been half painted for 2 months. Have I mentioned how much I hate painting?! It's not even that big of a job. But, I swear it makes me feel like I have ADD. Get our guest room ready, organize a few closets and start going through toys. Get a fold out table and extra chairs. Plus, it got cold overnight!! I have to pull the fleece out for my kiddos.
And finally, a list for Black Friday shopping. I'm half done. Almost there. Christmas is right around the corner.
And that reminds me: I need to pull out the decorations.
I usually kind of hate this time of year: the hustle and busyness, the cold, all the stuff, but I'm really excited and happy and just grateful to do it all this year. You never know when you won't be able to celebrate these happy times with the people you love.
Ps. I want to add www.thevintagepearl.com and black uggs Ansley slippers to my Christmas list. That's not asking too much, is it?!
(I'm joking. It is!)
