Random Thursdays: All Things Christmas

                                   


(This is going to be a pretty short post, because I’ve got a ton to do today!)
 

Well, Christmas is less than a week away. That’s a good thing, because I’m getting itchy fingers and can’t wait to open my presents!

I have so much to do today, it’s a little overwhelming. For starters, I need to do all of my baking. I want to get a box of cookies in the mail as a last-minute gift for my grandma, who is 85 and has been ill all autumn; I know she won’t be baking for herself, so I think an assorted box of treats would be a nice surprise for her! Thank goodness for USPS Flat Rate boxes–those suckers ship fast!

I also have some last-minute cards and packages to put in the mail. Not gonna lie–as thrilled as I am that it finally snowed here, I’m not looking forward to going out in this weather to hit the post office!

I somehow actually lucked into a three-day weekend for Christmas this year, so I will probably be sitting around the house in my yoga pants, noshing and relaxing with a stack of magazines. We don’t do the whole family get-together thing; our relatives are too far away and we’re usually too busy to travel. So I’m really looking forward to a peaceful weekend with the hubbby! Maybe we can even get out and enjoy the snow!

Christmas really is my favorite holiday (I have a whole growing Pinterest board dedicated to it: http://pinterest.com/writergirlM/christmas-aka-my-favorite-holiday/), and even though I didn’t do a lot of decorating this year, I’m having fun pinning ideas for future holidays:

I’m also cranking up the Trans-Siberian Orchestra on the stereo!

Tell me, what are you doing this year for Christmas? I’d love to hear about it!

  1. I cant wait to open my gift either. I’m itching to tear through those suckers, especially since the hubs has been so secretive. You can bet that I’ll be making those brownies for the hubs this weekend. Yummy!

    Thanks for linking up with us.

  2. What a beautiful snow photo. Trans Siberian Orchestra is my favorite music during the holiday season. Thanks for following.

  3. Those cookies look goooood… and that mantle is gorgeous!! My main Christmas project is keeping my infant from eating the ornaments. :)
