Seeing as Christmas is basically officially upon us, this will probably be the last time I post until the holiday has passed. Here are 5 things that we’ll be up to over the next several days.
One. My Mom and sisters come into town this evening! Paige has a half day, and Mom is pulling Brooke out of school early (her most favorite thing) so they can hit the road and be in town by this evening. This means I’ll be taking a half day at work to hurry and stock the house with food and clean up the guest rooms. I can’t wait to have them around for a few days.
Two. Food, food, food. I recently perfected my mac and cheese recipe, and it’s a big hit with the fam. My sissys really don’t eat me, and they take after me with the whole love of cheese thing. I’m sure my Mom will be in the kitchen the entire time they’re here, and my mother in law never disappoints. Throw in the explosion of treats they’re handing out at work today, and I’m sure to gain 5 pounds in the next week.
Three. Even though I got a great start with my Christmas shopping in November, I’ve been slacking on the wrapping. That is at the top of my to do list for this evening, and I hope I can dig out the boxes I need from the basement rather than having to purchase any.
Four. What would Christmas break be without a few festivities around town? We already have tickets to take the girls to Jump Zone, which I heard is basically the most fun place in the world. How can it not be with giant trampolines everywhere? I’ve wanted to try out one of these places since Alexa and Jim debuted theirs on RHOC. Other possibilities include, heading Downtown for ice skating in Fountain Square, Clifton Mills, and Zoo Lights.
Five. Everyone, have the merriest of Christmases! I have so much fun sharing here and there on this blog, and getting to know others from reading theirs. I am thankful for this fun part of my life that has served as a getaway from every day realities, and also a way to meet real life friends.
See ya next week!
