So, what does one do when you have a built in blogging topic for 30 days...hoping that this will get one back into the blogging routine? Well, if you are me, you do nothing...and fail miserably! HAHA! Yes...my 30 Days of Thankfulness continued on via my Facebook statuses...but never made the transition over here to the ol' blog.
And what do I have to blame this on??? Pinterest. Yes...I've become a hopeless Pinterestaholic. And what's even worse is that I've brought my BFF and sister into my addiction. So...now we are all addicts. Almost every night I snuggle down in my bed, turn on Gilmore Girls or whatever Christmas movie is featured that evening, and scroll through the countless pins. And my lunch time has now become one big Pinterest-fest.
However, Pinterest has also inspired several Christmas gift projects...which I can't go into right now...because certain people who may be receiving these gifts may or may not read my blog...so, you'll have to wait in great anticipation to see what Pinterest inspired me to do.
And I'm hoping they all turn out...because if they don't...I don't know what I'm gonna do! ;)
Finally the weather in NC has turned cooler and I can begin to feel like it's almost Christmas! I mean, for me anyways, it's hard to be in the Christmas mood if I'm wearing flip flops and t-shirts. Which, yes, I wore on Monday...and the mountains had snow on Tuesday. Welcome to NC!
Christmas also means a month of running around...church events...family events...gift buying & wrapping. While I love Christmas and everything that it represents, I h.a.t.e. the general busy-ness of the season. And everything that I do has such value that it's hard to give anything up. So...when you see that blur...that's me running by! :)
Tomorrow, I'm very excited to say that we are headed to the mountains to pick out a Christmas tree. We used to do this every year when I was younger. Several weeks ago, I told Mom & Dad I wanted to do this again and we decided to go this weekend. Dylan has never picked a tree in the mountains...so I'm very excited to share this with him. Plus our tree will be much fresher than if we pick it out around here...meaning that hopefully it will last a little longer and not make me scared that it's going to burn my house down! I love having a real tree...and Dylan isn't particular about many things...but he is VERY insistent about having a real tree! One of the blessings of living in NC is the close proximity to Christmas tree farms galore!
Hope you all are doing well. I feel like the worst blogger ever...I never post and I almost never read. Although, sometimes I read and don't comment...which is probably even worse! I hope to see you again soon! :)
