It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It's starting to look like Christmas at my house, albeit slowly. I feel so far behind on things this year. We almost didn't put up a tree and I am pretty close to calling it quits on the Christmas cards. I have mailed only one. I hate to do that, but it's not been the typical holiday for us this year so I just need to adjust my standards.

Nevertheless, I did manage to shop for the family that we adopted at work and I finished shopping for my senior citizen. I bought everything on her list, including the red socks she wanted! (which was why I picked her) And she got several surprises too. The only part that is hard is being anonymous. I wish I could meet her.

We went to Chick-fil-A the other day which is one of my favorite fast food places. While I was staring at the ad for their new chocolate chip peppermint milkshake and telling myself I did not NEED it, a guy walks up and hands me a coupon for a free chocolate chip peppermint milkshake. Talk about divine intervention. LOL! I think this is the coupon karma coming back to me as I am always handing out coupons to people in line at Hobby Lobby and Michael's when I have an extra one.

Here are some pictures of a gorgeous wreath that my friend Lisa made for me in "grinch green" colors. I took these at night and wasn't sure how they would turn out. I love the glow of the lights in the first picture. And aren't the red spirals in the wreath cool? She did a fantastic job!
