Currently... December

Linking up with Anne and Jenna for a little peek at what I'm up to currently...


There were more hours in the day. Feeling a bit overwhelmed right now with the holidays upon us... how in the world will I ever get it all done? The good news is I feel this way every year and my kids seem to always be happy and content with what ever shows up under the Christmas tree. That is a blessing!


The years when I could hit Wal-Mart, Target and Toys R Us and be done with Christmas for my kids. Now I have to hunt on Amazon and Ebay, little local boutiques, secretly question friends for clues. Little did I know that I would one day miss those endless trips to the toy section that made me want to straight up kill myself.


Nothing. I do it all on about a week or less from Christmas.... Sometimes even Christmas Eve. Bonus is that I have a teenager that can wrap all of the gifts for her brother and sister and I do take full advantage of that.


Big sigh..... I bought a new oven on black Friday and was so excited to get to baking again this holiday season. But alas, not meant to be again as the one I chose was actually not in stock and they aren't getting anymore. I love having a double oven but man they are so damn expensive to replace. Still looking and dreaming of baking again someday! Until then the appliance God's are still shitting on me...


The outside of my house this weekend with my 13 year old son. His Dad pretty much hates all things Christmas so it amazes me that this kid wants to do it all for me. Oh and I realized 100% for sure last night as he was sitting on my bed telling me about his day that his voice is changing. (insert my crying Mom face here) My babies are growing up!!!

That's it for me today. What are you up to currently?


  1. i was surprised by my family yesterday when i came home and they had put up the tree! i'd been bugging my husband to do it already so they surprised me last night. now i must start wrapping gifts because it looks so bare under there.

  2. I too wish there more hours in the day and girl I have done about 2/3 of all my shopping on Amazon this year! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  3. I just love Christmas so much so if I do have kids I really hope they love it as well!!! I always wait until the week of Christmas to wrap stuff. I like to do it all at once and I am usually buying things until then! Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Our outside remains undone as well.

    Sign me up for more hours in the day please.

  5. Ha....we can't have that picture perfect "all the presents stacked neatly under the tree" photo ever...because my circus of animals would lay on them, and chew on them, and pee on them. So i don't wrap until xmas eve. Such is life!! Happy Friday Amy!

  6. i haven't wrapped a thing either-just sitting there in a pile. yes we need more hours in the day and daylight, especially. you'll get it all done!

  7. Haha, I'm usually the one that waits until Christmas eve to wrap, too!
