Advent Calender has issues...

SO! It was back to the mall with me for about an hour last night. I really don't mind going to the mall during Christmas. Sure, it's absolutely insanely busy on the weekend (which is why I didn't go on Friday) BUT I don't know, it's just all bustling and festive and decorated. I like it!
I believe that I'm FINALLY done my Christmas shopping (hopefully), but you never know ;)

The past few nights, I've been waking up at about 2:30 ish and have been having a heck of a time getting back to sleep, THEN when my alarm finally goes off at 5...I feel DEAD to the world. I don't know what to do...but I hope this annoying little habit stops on the ASAP.

So, you may or may not know...but Scott has been gone for 3 weeks. Tonight, he's able to come back for about 24 hours then he goes back out until he's off for Christmas, on the 21st.
I don't know about you...but I'm DEFINITELY ready for some holidays...
How about you??

Want to see something lame??

Do you understand what's going on there? The KINDER EGG ITSELF is behind that door. On the 13th???!
NO! Gah...I had to skip the 13th for now. I don't know if it's just me...but that Kinder Egg is being saved for the final Kinder feast. 'Nuff said. :P

So, I still need wrapping paper and a bunch of ingredients to get some baking going! Hopefully that happens this weekend.

But the Christmas blogging must go on!

December 14th...11 days til Christmas! Real or artificial tree you ask??

Well...growing up, I think I only saw one or perhaps two real trees in our house.We had at least a couple (probably more) artificial trees stored in our basement. And correct me if I'm wrong family... but I believe almost all of my siblings get artificial trees? One sibling that I KNOW gets a REAL tree every year is the Strathmore bunch. (Remember how I talked about their Obese tree??...I'm so sad I forgot to get a picture!)
 {PS, my graham cracker house is still decorating my remains uneaten thus far!}

I know lots of people love going out to get real trees...and I'm sure that's a very fun and festive experience! Real trees also usually look great (or obese apparently...), and lots of people love the piney tree scent.
I, however, don't really care. Haha. I just love the look of a decorated tree - period! And I'm not a huge piney scent fan... so that doesn't really make me want a real tree. PLUS, real trees make a mess! (Also, who knows what critters you're bringing into your home in that tree bundle D: ).
So by the sounds of it, I think for me personally, I prefer an artificial tree ;)

How about you?? Real or artificial??

Almost forgot about the 12 days of Christmas!
On the second day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 2 pairs of sweatpants and a fuzzy kitten named Georgey.

Now here's my explanation. I don't know about you...but when I'm hibernating at home for part of the holidays, I do NOT leave my pj's/sweatpants. My favorites are usually Lululemon...but I also have a really big, cozy pair I love! (I'm giving 2 pairs so you can cycle through... wash one pair while wearing the other). ;)
You're welcome.
You understand what I'm saying? ;)


Ciao for meow :)!

PS. If you haven't yet... don't forget to check out that giveaway! The chances are still VERY HIGH for winning SOMETHING!

So the Christmas song I chose for today took me a while to find. I had no idea what it was called, and I ABSOLUTELY did NOT know it was Brittney Spears. It's a catchy song though, so far, I was making up my own words because I didn't really know what they were. (Thus why it took me so long to find...). ;)
What do you think of it??


  1. Yay for hopefully being done with your shopping! Although you're braver than me...I rarely venture to the stores this time of year because of the crowds. And I love your Christmas song...I'm excited to see what you add each day :)

    1. Haha! Crowds can definitely be annoying...but I'm sure you could take 'em ;)

      I'm sad as I haven't been able to read your blog for a couple days D: Hopefully I can catch up soon!

  2. I don't know if you read NieNie, but your comment about bringing little critters into the house reminded me of one of her posts...

    WARNING: if you haven't been exposed to this blog, it is very addictive!!

    1. NieNie you, I haven't heard of it! I'll definitely check it out as soon as I get a chance ;)

      Great...another blog to get hooked on haha
