i love holidays

This week has been awesome. Normally, the Christmas-stuff-out-the-moment-Halloween-ends really annoys me... but this year, I am already full of the Christmas spirit. My husband and I spent our entire Sunday making cookies, watching Christmas Movies and drinking eggnog {which, in case you were wondering, is the nastiest thing that has ever passed my lips!}. This morning, I sat here at my desk and completed my Christmas List -- I totally know what I'm getting almost everyone and I'm so lucky to be able to afford awesome gifts this year!

{Sean, if you're reading this.... get ready to pee your pants this year!!}

Usually, not gonna lie.... I'm a bit of a scrooge. Family gatherings make me nervous and spending large quantities of cash on gifts makes my heart race in an i'm-gonna-have-a-heart-attack kind of way. But this year is gonna be different! I can feel it!

Here are some things I am absolutely looking forward to:

[1.] Blue Christmas Lights

[2.] Snow {please, please, please let us get snowed in again this year!!!}

[3.] Knitted Socks and Mittens

[4.] Cookies + Milk, in large quantities

[5.] Silent, Cold Air {the kind where you feel like you're the only one around for milesssss}
[6.] Tacky Decorations... everywhere you turn!

[7.] Dressing my doggies up in ridiculously themed costumes

[8.] Snuggling on the couch watching movies

[9.] Tacky Sweaters

[10.] Starbucks Lattes....every. single. day. {ok... this ones sort of a fantasy....maybe not every day...}

Oh yeah, I'm also looking forward to Thanksgiving! This is the first time in 6 years that I get to eat a real, actual turkey! No more crazy looks for bringing out my tofurkey!

Are you in the holiday spirit yet?!
