Friday Confession (Christmas Edition)

So, this is the last Friday before Christmas. I thought I would make these confessions...well, you know...Christmas-y. Here goes...


  • Although I procrastinated (big time), my tree is up and my cards are on their way out the door. It may be just one week before Christmas, but it's done!

  • I was wondering. I got this REALLY cute vinyl lettering at Target that says "Merry Christmas" in fancy writing. Do you think it's too late to put it up on my wall? Is that a waste, seeing that Christmas is just 7 days away? I feel this sudden urge to go all out and put up all my decorations even though they'll all have to come back down in just a couple of weeks. What do you think?

  • Isaiah and I made cookies for his class, from a tub...and called it baking. Hey, we rolled them in little balls and pressed them out with colored sugar...and BAKED them in our oven! At least we didn't buy them at Merritt's and call them our own. Now that would have been bad. (Why didn't I think of that earlier?)

  • The only gifts under my tree are from Starbucks...is that a problem?

  • Last night while purchasing a gift for a co-worker, I handed the cashier my debit card...she handed me the receipt to sign...I started signing my mother's name. She probably thought I was totally using someone else's card...maybe she called the cops after I left?...maybe she thought I have an alias? Who knows? Now, in my defense, I work for my mother and sign her name ALL DAY, so it's not like I'm totally crazy. Just a little.
  • I'm still buying gifts and probably won't finish until Christmas Eve. Can you say "procrastinator"?
  • I'm receiving my 3rd Amazon.com order today. I really love Amazon.com.
  • Last night I almost started wrapping gifts, but then I realized that most of the things I was going to wrap are supposed to be from Santa...so, I scratched that idea and curled up on the couch with Isaiah and watched Rudolph...for the 3rd time. (Like there was NOTHING else to do...dirty dishes, dirty laundry, CHRISTMAS DECORATING...pssshh...whatever.)
  • On Christmas Eve, I still feel like a little kid (even though I'm 31...yeah, 31). I still feel the excitement and the anticipation. When I wake up on Christmas morning, I like to just lay there in bed with a smile on my face and just soak in all the goodness...enough to last all year. Oh, the magic of Christmas.

*Remember, Christmas without Christ is just "mas".*

Enjoy the magic of the season!

Happy Friday

Good for you! I am glad you watched Rudolph for the 3rd time! Since when is wrapping presents more important than that time with your son? :) I have seen Mickey's Christmas Carol more times than I can count, but I am determined not to feel bad about it!

Oh yes Tub cookies count. Rolling and baking! That is amazing!

I missed Rudolph so far this year and I just said I absolutely MUST see it before Christmas or there will be problems. What's Christmas without Rudolph...

I think you should save the letters for next year so you have something special to put up.

This list is very similar to one that I could make! I found you from SITS! Have a good day! And happy wrapping!

I soooo know what you are talking about on the signing your mom's name.....I do the same thing. When I first started working for her, I would sign MY name and have to void EVERYTHING.....now, I'm wondering how many checks I've written of my own and sign HER name....lol.

I say put up the sign....and take a picture and show us. Carly's fiance comes in today and I'm busy on my blog instead of cleaning house......yep, priorities....

Have a great weekend!!!
