Christmas Shopping Begins!

November 4, 2009

Yesterday on my lunch break, I officially started Christmas shopping. I only bought for Bella (surprise, surprise) but got a ton of gifts for her. Clothes, a Barbie, a baby doll with a stroller, the Mickey's Magic Choo Choo, etc. Tons of stuff! I was very proud of myself for getting so much done already!
I still have around 10 more people, plus more for Bella (of course!) to buy for, but little by little we'll get it all done! I have been listening to Christmas music at my desk to get into the spirit and it seems to be working! I want to start putting up decorations, but that seems a bit too early. So we'll wait until Thanksgiving week to start that. We have decided to get a cheap small tree for the front room. The tree we have now will be put in the living room seeing as it's the only place we can put a 10' tree! I LOVE our tree, and wouldn't have it any other way, I just always dreamed of having one in the front window for everyone to see when they drive by. So we will get a pre-lit one just for decoration. Gosh, all the ideas I have for decorating during Christmas!!
Tonight Bella is staying with Grandma & Grandpa so Eric and I can go have some sushi together. It's been months since we had any (although he had some with the other Enterprise managers at lunch yesterday... sparking my interest in having some tonight!) and it will be nice to sit and relax for an hour or so and just catch up with each other. I have noticed that since Bella moved to her new daycare Monday, we are getting home around 6:20 p.m. or so and rushing to get dinner ready and Bella bathed. Eric & I haven't had much time to catch up let alone just talk and enjoy each other's company. It'll be a nice getaway!
