Tuesday Tidbits

  • It's starting to get cold here and while I'm not a fan of the cooler temps or the impending snow, I was excited to break out my beloved Theory Juliet sweater yesterday.  It's so warm and cozy, how could you not love it?
  • I started Christmas shopping, officially.  I can't help it, I know I should respect the turkey but I need to get a head start so I'm not scrambling at the last minute.  Plus I'm buying the majority online so I have to do it early to give it time to get here, right?
  • Speaking of Christmas, I cannot wait to start decorating!  I am still on the fence about the Christmas tree this year.  Kendall as at a "fun" age and visions of ornaments flying through the air are doing through my head.
  • We participated in a children's book exchange this year Kendall got her first book yesterday!  I love The Very Hungry Caterpillar and can't believe we didn't have it till now.  Thank you anonymous book giver.  {if you haven't participated and would like to please leave me a comment}.

  • And while we're talking about blog comments, please make sure you are not a "no-reply" comment leaver.  I can't tell you how many times I have gone to respond to a question and/or sweet comment only to find I've spent 5 minutes typing to a no-reply email address.  Not cool bloggers.  It's an easy fix, here's what you do:1. Go to your dashboard, 2. Click "edit profile" 3. Check the box that says "show my email address" 4. Save your profile.  Easy peasy.
  • I made the most delicious Pinterest recipe last night, thanks to Lindsay.  Baked spaghetti is the new go-to baked dish. And?  It's got french fried onions on top!  What's not to love?
  • We had a baby shower for a coworker this week.  She is older and unexpectedly pregnant with many complications.  She is having a hard time emotionally and financially and the outpouring of love {and gifts} she got was amazing.  I donated Kendall's swing and while it was very hard for me to let go of {wah that's where my baby slept for 4 months} it made me feel so good to know that the swing that made my baby so happy will now bring another baby the same peace and happiness.
  • I am offering a really great Avon special through the end of this month!   For every $25 order you get one of these 14 piece gift sets FREE!  These are PERFECT stocking stuffers.
{ps. there is also free shipping on ANY order right now too}
  • I'm getting nervous to start posting SWW posts again.  This week marks our final guest post and the ladies have been so great I'm not sure if I can compete now!  Stay tuned for tomorrow's finale, I've saved the best for last.
  • Now that I'm finally comfortable with my weight Jimmy and I have decided it's time to firm up!  Neither of us wants to lose but we need to get less jiggly.  Don't worry I'll keep you updated throughout this journey as well.
  • I'm excited that this week is an extra short week!  Hello 4 day vacation!  I have no plans to go Black Friday shopping but I may break out those Christmas decorations!
Hope everyone is having a good {short} week!

  4. For our Christmas tree we have these soft little teddy bear ornaments that we used to decorate our tree whenever we had a baby at that stage. They're not my favorite, but the kids like them and I just can't fathom no Christmas tree!
