Ready to Roll…

Usually I am the annual procrastinator– running cards to the post office hoping that they arrive by Christmas. So although this is out of the ordinary, let me swim in this feeling of accomplishment… until my fingers get all pruney.
I ordered my cards through Tiny Prints and I was impressed with all the options (posted some of my favorite designs in a previous post) and with how fast I received them!
Just a little FYI: Today you can receive 30% off your Tiny Prints order sitewide. Tomorrow (Friday Nov 30th) and through the weekend it is 25% off using code WKDSALE1112.

 

It had to be in early October as I was laying on my bed with Lola–so sick! I was letting her play with my phone. Even though I deleted all the games off it (because I was sick of my kids declining any calls and searching for my phone in their toy bins) but Lola still liked to play songs on Pandora or my music list. She clicked on something and Frank Sinatra, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” came on. For many different reasons it lifted my sprits immediately. One of the reasons being that my late Grandpa sings exactly like Frank (I’m sure you’ve heard me brag about this before ; ) and among the other reasons that song combines so many childhood & present time memories wrapped into a big fat present for me. I don’t even know why I am telling this story… I think it’s because when you don’t feel good or sick or lonely or whatever is weighing you down search for that small thing to lift your spirits. For me, being so sick in October, it was Christmas music. So I embraced it & listened to those jolly tunes for hours. Just until that verging annoying version of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” came on. But ever since then, I have been ready for Christmas. No matter how cheesey it sounds–it was my happy place. That & frozen junior mints. (just give it a try!)
Some of that seasonal fun has begun: Meeting Santa, shopping and crafting!
