This has been a super busy week. I’ve been on Christmas vacation since Friday around noon and up to that point, I hadn’t started my Christmas shopping. Matt and I finally braved the roads, parking lots, and stores Saturday afternoon and were able to accomplish quite a bit of the things on my list. The mall was crowded and the lines were long, but the worst part about the whole expedition was by far the parking lots. It took us 30 minutes to find a parking space at Memorial City mall. It.was.CRAZY!
We weren’t completely finished when we left on Saturday, but we grabbed some supper and called it a day. Matt went out on Sunday afternoon while I was gone and finished his Christmas shopping for me and then I went out and completely finished everything else Monday. I had extra shopping on my list Monday because not only was I trying to finish the stuff for Christmas, but I was also shopping for Matt’s birthday which was on Tuesday.
Matt worked a half day on Tuesday and then we met for a BBQ lunch for his birthday. After lunch, he worked on getting the bed put together and then we had dinner with his mom, sister, and grandmother for his birthday.
Happy Birthday Matt!
Since I’ve finished all of our Christmas shopping, our dining room has officially been turned into Santa’s workshop. It’s fairly organized and neat for now…but it’s only going to get worse. I’ll keep it organized while I’m wrapping, but neat…that’s another issue. We just have too many people to buy for…I have to keep it organized, but neat doesn’t always work out…haha.
The table doesn’t look so bad…but make sure and notice the STACK of boxes in the right corner and the stack in the chair. This also doesn’t show some of Matt’s gifts which are in hiding under our bed. If you need me over the next few days…look under all the wrapping paper!
