Yesterday, I wrote about not having any Christmas Spirit. I'm sitting here listening to my Christmas playlists from previous years and working on my list of things that needs done. It's working....I think I'm feeling the mojo returning. Plus...Bobbi threatened to cram it down my throat....
I also think getting out with the girls last night really helped recharge my batteries. I met up with The Real Housewives of Utah, Lauren, Stephanie, Kim and Loralee at Bistro 258 in downtown Ogden and I ate until I was sick! I had the best time....these gals are so much fun and I felt so comfortable and included. A feeling that has eluded me much of the last 3 years. Thanks ladies!
My friend Liz at Sugarplum Creations had a great idea to link up each week to show the cool crafts and stuff we're doing with our kids through the holiday. We have elves that will be here on December 1st and they do and bring stuff all through the month. And I want to do crafts with them this year...I think they are really ready!
