Christmas Bucket List

Last week a friend at bible study read this to us and we all loved it. What a great reminder of the things that are really important during this busy time of the year. It’s so easy to get caught up in all that’s on our “to do” list and forget to enjoy the sweet things that come with the Christmas season.

I spent yesterday afternoon wrapping presents so I could get that off my “list”. I’ll still have a few more to do since they haven’t been purchased yet, but the majority is done.

It’s a messy job, but someone’s gotta’ do it!? I like wrapping presents, it’s just that I get so stiff sitting on the floor with my legs all criss-cross applesauce. I look like I’m 100 years old when I stand up instead of less than half of that.

If you are still looking for a good present for a daughter, mother or some other female have you considered a blanket scarf?

I love mine and yesterday I ordered a new one from Amazon.

I think this will look so cute with a little black swing dress I purchased at Old Navy recently.

I’ve been wearing quite a few of these style dresses. They are so incredibly comfortable and cute. The material is soft and slightly stretchy and you are in no way constricted. The perfect dress if you are planning on eating a lot. LOL These little dresses also pack really well. They fold up so small and don’t take much space and once they’ve been hung up the wrinkles fall out pretty easily. A real winner in my book.

When I was looking for the black plaid scarf I noticed this set of TWO. I wish I’d seen this before I bought my other one that is this pattern. These are only $22.99 for BOTH. What a deal! While I love my blanket scarf sometimes I would love to have it in infinity form with a little less fabric. You could also buy these and divide them up into two gifts.

Amazon has a ton of choices in these styles of scarves you can check out by clicking here.

Are you done with your shopping? Have you started wrapping? I’m usually wrapping at the 9th hour so I feel pretty good that I’ve gotten some of that done. Now if I can just get my cards done! They’re ordered but haven’t been delivered. I haven’t been this late doing them in quite a few years, but we had family pictures made at Thanksgiving and I wanted to use them so it threw a little behind.

Happy Tuesday friends!
