I confess…

I am working from the dining room table today. I’ll be here a lot this weekend as I have a massive project to do for work but I don’t mind.  In fact I am SO excited about it, this one is a doozie of a challenge that I started working on yesterday in the office and the more time I spend on it, the more I want to spend!

I confess…

My honey is the best!  He had the day off yesterday and not only did all of the laundry, he put up the lights outside!  But wait, there is more!  Each year he adds to the household holiday decorations, so this year he added a Hello Kitty!  That is a true love right there, a man willing to put a blow up Hello Kitty in her pink snow attire and Santa hat to the porch of the man-castle.  He also had dinner ready when I got home, breaded pork chops like only he can make!  The kiddos were impressed, they haven’t had them before.  It was a long, hard week and I was so grateful not to have to cook dinner when I got home from work later than usual.  You can click on the photos on the left side bar to see the outside decorations on my Instagram.

It is feeling SO much like Christmas!  My trees lit up, lights outside, peppermint essential oil in the diffuser, cinnamon candle burning, and snow in the forecast.  Supposedly up to 8-10 inches in my little neck of the woods.  I LOVE it!  Okay I do hate cold, hate the pain in my joints, and hate driving in the crap.  However, as I am home working, and it is SO pretty and the kiddos are here for the weekend? LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOOOOW!!!  Makes my Christmas spirit just bust out all over!  If I could still do one, I’d be cartwheeling across the lawn!

I confess…

I’m sitting here listening online to the KLOVE Christmas music station, seat dancing and loving life!  Ya’ll have a fantastic day!

P.S. Confession:

I DO hope the NWS is correct on this latest snow fall estimation that came out this morning!!!



  1. A lot of our snow has melted over the weekend, but I see our temperatures are dropping again, so it’s not likely to stay non-white for long.
    I love the Hello Kitty! My daughter wants one now — my hubby is not so agreeable as The Knight. ha
    I saw a cute Elf thing — they had him fishing in the toilet bowl for those goldfish crackers! ha how everyone thinks up all these antics, I don’t know.

    • I wish I could find creative ways with the elf! Thankful for Pinterest as I’m so new to this tradition!
