Have you Started?

Christmas is 43 days away. Um...what happened to September and October?!

Anyway, every year I vow to be more organized so I can enjoy the Christmas season a little more...this year, I feel like I've got a leg up on it! I already have several presents purchased...not wrapped yet, but IN MY POSSESION. 

This is huge, people. HUGE.

I'm not sure I've ever started this early! I'm so proud of myself. much you wanna bet that the week before Christmas I'm running around like a crazy fool looking for that perfect, last minute gift.

Ugh. Let's hope not. I hope to spend that last week baking and listening to Christmas music and sipping hot chocolate in front of the fire and watching "Elf" and soaking in the joy and magic of the season surrounded by my littles and the man that makes my heart go pitter-pat.

So, here's to a slower paced Christmas season and the time to enjoy every single wonderful moment of it!



  1. Good for you! I have always gotten my shopping done early so that I could just enjoy the season. It does make a difference. Happy Wednesday!

It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
