Can't Touch This

I finally broke on Wednesday and gave Justin his birthday present early. I know. I know. I've already admitted that I'm horrible with surprises. I can't help it. I came up with two reasons that made me feel better about giving him his gifts a week and a half early. Reason 1: His birthday is Christmas day, and I think he deserves two separate occassions for gifts. I didn't want to be giving him his birthday present while he was giving me a Christmas gift. That just didn't seem fair. Reason 2: Because I'm so bad at surprises, I decided to give him a hint on Wednesday morning. Well, the first thing he guessed was right. I lied and said he was wrong, which was so obvious. I'm also a really bad liar. I knew I couldn't keep up my lie for very longer, therefore he must get his gift that night. Whew! That made me feel better. Now, onto the gift. I got him an Ipod Touch 4th Generation. Here's a hint, don't go trying to buy these so close to Christmas. They are out at a lot of places. Well, I got it (see photo below) and he loves it. Mission accomplished. I had a lot to live up to on the gift front after getting my Kindle for my birthday.
Here she he is in all her his beauty. I've decided that it will need to be male, because I'm already jealous of how much of his time it has been taking. I decided I didn't want him having another girl in his life. I like to be the only one, besides his mom of course.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Tuesday Thoughts...

{Hello Everyone}

Here are some thoughts for the day…

1. I am getting so excited about Christmas. One of my favorite parts of the season is seeing everyone’s Christmas cards. I get so excited checking the mail every day just to see who has sent the latest card.
2. I had lunch with my sweet friend, Rachel, the other day and got to see her baby bump. This isn’t just any baby bump. It’s the absolute cutest, tiniest baby bump I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to meet her little boy. I also can’t wait to throw her a shower. If you know Rachel, she’s the absolute sweetest person in the world, which makes it so fun to do things for her.
3. Justin’s birthday is Christmas Day, and I am having the hardest time waiting to give him his presents. I am so not good with a surprise, so we’ll see how it goes.
4. Still excited about the upcoming Gatorbowl for the Dawgs. Sorry, I know I mention it just about every post, but I’m excited.
5. Also hard not mention is baby Harris’s upcoming arrival. I just can’t wait to meet him and see his sweet little face.
6. This past weekend was our annual friend group Christmas party at Pippa’s house. I wish I’d gotten some pictures of her actual house, because it is gorgeous!! We had so much fun, and I’ll leave you with some pics below… Enjoy!

Currently - Copied from Claire

Claire, thanks for this great blog post idea! Here are some things I'm currently into...
1. Refinishing Furniture - Who knew this would be this fun!!! I absolutely love seeing the hidden potential in a piece of furniture!
2. Christmas Shopping - Ughh, I always wait until the last minute. I do love to shop for gifts, but I just hate the lines. Every year, it's like I think the lines will get better the closer you get to the big day. They don't get better, people! They get worse!!
3. My Kindle - I'm loving having this little companion with me all the time. It fits in my purse and always has entertainment ready for me!!
4. The Dawgs at a Bowl Game - What fan doesn't like when their team goes to a bowl game?? I'm so happy for them. They definitely deserve it after a season of playing hard.
5. The Band Perry - If you don't listen to them, you definitely should! That's all I can really say about it.
That's it for today. Happy Hump Day everyone!!!!
