Women everywhere breathed a sigh of relief as the first "mass cooking holiday" is now under our belt.
And any of you who were lucky enough to go shopping on Black Friday, I am so jealous!! I used to do that every year, but times change and now I internet shop. I miss that first Friday, though, I used to love the Christmas carols and decorations and everyone bustling about.
Not that internet shopping doesn't have its advantages though. Shopping in your pajamas at 10:00 at night is not too hard to live with.
I have traditionally decorated for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving and today was no exception. My space challenged living room flaunts its small size when I am making decisions about where to put the tree. This year I decided to go for a grouping of small trees instead of just one big one. I was able to use all of my ornaments and not choke my living room.
We have lots more decorating to do, but the tree part is the most important. You can see my dresser, also. It's just a soft shade of blue so that it blends more with the wall and the small room. Way better than the bleached whale it looked like in high gloss white.
Tomorrow we will be doing some light Christmas shopping. I say light because both kids will be with me, so ambitions will be high, but expectations, well, not so much! That's okay, 'cause most of it will be done online, I'm just itching to walk around the mall and soak up Christmas!
