My eyes are heavy and it's only 8:45 p.m.. And although we had a wonderful time at the Gaylord Texan this weekend, and I slept in the car for a bit, I am pooped (pictures to come tomorrow). This is about what I feel like.
I am so looking forward to this coming week...well, in all actuality, I'm looking forward to Wednesday on. Monday and Tuesday are busy, and although I function well in busy, I am looking forward to being completely the opposite of busy. I just want to hang out and do whatever comes our way.
But, with Christmas a week away, I still have things to check off the list.
That means there is still work to be done, and luckily lots of it is fun work, if you know what I mean.
Shopping, wrapping, baking, hosting (again), traveling, celebrating with family, and waiting for Santa.
I love this week, and I'm ready for the fun of it to start.
This week instead of the usual installment of The Sunday 7, I'm just making a list. Sometimes there is nothing better than a good list, if you know what I mean.
So here goes.....if you're feeling like you too could use a master list this week, feel free to post it below. We'd love to know what you're doing this week, too.
- Make a master grocery list (complete with all the ingredients needed for all the goodies we are taking to all the great parties we have this week).
