one. oh Christmas tree.
As soon as the tree is up in my house, my heart always sings a little bit louder. I’m surprised that Ailey has not climbed it to the start yet, but then again – we explained she shouldn’t touch the tree and for once she is listening. Annabelle said it’s the best Christmas tree we have ever had (and I just love her even more for her enthusiasm).
two. dreaming of a white weekend.
“I smell snow….”
Without jinxing the weather report, there is a very good chance that we will be seeing our first snow accumulation tomorrow. Brandon and I bought each other boots for Christmas, so if it’s anything worthwhile, we will be using our gifts early. As for the girls – they have their snowsuits but no boots! We’re running to Target this morning to take advantage of the BOGO 50% sale on shoes to grab winter boots.
three. my Christmas wish list.
Since we didn’t close on our house yesterday, my wish list to Santa has changed. I need a new pair of leggings (Lululemon are my favorite), a winter hat, an external hard drive, a few pairs of warm socks, or a new digital camera.
four. date night.
Brandon and I are headed to Northampton, MA for his work Christmas party. We are staying at what looks to be an amazing hotel (its historical!) in an adorable town. I’m excited for a night away from the little ones – even if it is just a quick trip! We are coming home on the early side tomorrow because of the snow… yes we are that excited.
five. winter weather prep.
Tomorrow we shall find out how my car fares in the snow. I received new tires from Goodyear a couple of months ago, so we should be good on that front. However, I haven’t driven in snow in probably 8 years so … this could be fun. If you’re worried about winter weather, check out how I put together an emergency kit for your car here.
