This week was mainly work and getting home too late and lazy to take photos. All I want to do at the end of a long day is take off my makeup, change into pajamas and eat chocolate... it might be called the happiest time of the year, but it's also the busiest! Yesterday I had the day off and went Christmas shopping. I can't remember the last time I felt so close to "shopping 'til dropping." Luckily I got almost all of the gifts on my list. Most of the purchases are secret in case someone sneaks a peak at my blog before the 25th, but I did shop for two people who don't read these posts: my 6-month-old niece and the mother of my husband's best friend. Hence, the puffy, fluffy stuffed animal bunny and the giant Jo Malone bag. I also bought three boxed sets of Christmas cards, for a grand total of 42 cards, so the next few evenings will be spent drinking tea and writing. The shopping is not over yet, however, because today I signed up for a gift donation program! I will tell you the details later this week.
