11 Days

Can we talk about how there are only ELEVEN days until Christmas folks?! It has completely snuck up on me... even though I always knew it was coming! In fun, holiday spirit today-- I give you the 11 days of Christmas! (Yes, I should have posted this yesterday and it could have been 12 but... messed that one up!)

11- Attempts at a Christmas card picture. Let's just say, it wasn't our best card this year- but hopefully our cute kid makes up for it.

10- Thousand steps a day I'm aiming to get every day for the rest of this month. I don't want to start the new year feeling like I'm slacked off all holiday season so I'm trying to stick with it! Also, I might be signing up for another half-marathon.... what!?

9- Number of "Baby's 1st Christmas" ornaments I am trying to decide between. This decision should not be this difficult, but it's taking me entirely too long to choose.

8- Varieties of baked goods that are tempting me every.single.day right now.

7- Candles that we have on constant rotation in our house. We've stocked up in the past couple of years so we have a huge variety of seasonal scents that I can't get enough of.

6- Number of Amazon Prime packages that are still on their way to our house. We thought we were so ahead of the game, but WHOOPS we still had some shopping to do.

5- Average hours of sleep I'm getting per night right now. I stay up too late, and my baby is teething sooo...

4- Christmas movies that are still must watches for me this year that we haven't seen yet:  Jingle All The Way, The Grinch (with Jim Carey!), Claymation Christmas and The Holiday.

3- Number of gifts we bought for T this year. He literally needs NOTHING and will remember NOTHING so we got him practical items that he'll actually need in the coming months.

2- Boys that I'm going to kiss under the mistletoe this year. That's Jared and T, for anyone wondering ;)

1- Goal for this holiday season is just to soak it all in. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle but the holidays are all about family and time together, and that's what I want to focus on.

  4. I've seem to know when Christmas is coming for a long time. We're getting married on the 24th and I've had a countdown for months to make sure I'd get everything done...and it's almost in the single digits. I have no idea where time went...enjoy T's first Christmas!!

  9. Practical Christmas gives when they're so little are a good idea! Mav's biggest present last year (by far) was a convertible carseat that he started using right after we bought it on black friday haha. If you email me your address, I'd love to send you guys a Christmas card!

  16. I absolutely love this. I have no doubt that your Christmas cards are amazing. :) Sweet T makes them that way for sure. Your idea of just doing practical things for him this year is perfect.

  17. A cute kid ALWAYS makes up for anything going on with a Christmas card (I'm sure yours is amazing!!) And I thought I was ahead of the game this year as well with Christmas shopping but realized I still have some to go. Your packages are on their way, though, so you're actually ahead of the game!! I haven't seen Jingle all the Way in FOREVER!! So thanks for the reminder!
