Where did the month of November go?! The past couple of weeks have seriously just been so busy! With family in town, working, and Thanksgiving and working Black Friday, I feel like I am just now settling down for a little rest today and tomorrow. The month of December is going to be super busy for me but I will do my best to continue writing as well as just enjoying the Christmas season! It is one of my favorites after all! I am resolved to really just enjoy this season and not get overwhelmed and grumpy because of working in retail. Life really is too short for that!
I want to really celebrate the season! I want to do the cheesy things that people do around the holidays! I love tradition around Christmas and I love having those special moments! Its great! As I am sitting here, I am definitely enjoying some Christmas tea and some Christmas music. I am so ready to really celebrate the season.
So, keep an eye out through December, I have some Christmas DIY I want to do as well as some recipes I want to try!
So long November! Hello December!
I am so glad that today’s topic is the temperature! Winter has seriously hit Denver and this post could not have come at a better time! We have had frigid temperatures the last couple of days with today being the coldest! Here is the temperature as it stands right now:
Yup, that’s right. It is 0 degrees outside. It got up to about 9 today, not even hitting the double digits! When I woke up at 5:30 this morning, it was -7. Oh buddy, that was cold! Its crazy that it went from 60 on Monday to 9 today. What is that?! Gotta love the crazy Denver weather!
Hope its warmer in your neck of the woods!
So, I was wracking my brain on the way home from work today, trying to figure out what in the world to take a picture to demonstrate joyous. I mean don’t get me wrong, I am super excited about all the snow we are getting. And that is something to be joyous about. The season itself is something to be joyous about. It is a celebration of the birth of Christ! But I really was just drawing a blank on how to photograph joyous.
I then got home and we are dog sitting another husky right now, so that means two huskies in the house. They needed to go potty right away. They did their business right away and then started going crazy in the snow. Huskies love snow, I have come to find out. Like really love snow! As I am watching them bolting around the yard, I realize what demonstrates joyous better than two huskies and their love for snow?!?!! So, I ran inside and grabbed my camera. I think I got a few decent shots!
You can just see the half crazed looks in their eyes. LOL!
Snow makes huskies super playful! 🙂
After got a little worn down, they stopped long enough for me to grab a couple of glamour shots. 😛
I love my beautiful boy! His eyes get me every time!
Halo got in the way a little bit on this one, but I just love it anyway.
Halo is awesome! He has one blue eye and one brown eye and apparently loves to eat snow! Lol!
December 3rd, in my photo challenge brings the color red! I have to say, one of my favorite colors to wear is red. I absolutely love it. TJ can tell you, I wear my red sweater pretty frequently. lol. I wore it today, hoping to get a picture but that did not end up happening. Oh well, at least last night I thought ahead to take a picture of the massive amount of red that was all over my living room floor. The suspense is killing you, I know it is!
Our friend Alexi had a huge box of vinyl that he wasn’t using. We happened to be looking for some vinyl for various projects so this was the perfect opportunity for both of us! We did not know what colors were all there and so we unrolled it all and found tons of colors. Mostly white, but a ton of red too! Like a ton of red. TJ was super giddy to play with some vinyl.
As you can see, lots and lots of red vinyl! Should be fun!
Hope you’re enjoying this holiday season!
P.S. We are about to get a pretty good amount of snow! Pictures hopefully tomorrow!
It is the month of December!!!! This means Christmas is so close! I am so excited! This is my favorite month of the year! The Christmas season is always my favorite. The lights, the food, the snow, the reason for the season! I love all of it. 🙂
There is one downside, I work retail and honestly the Christmas season is definitely a madhouse. It makes the season go by way too quickly. Well, this December I have decided to embrace the holidays fully! I have found this challenge on pinterest sometime either this year or last year, I can’t remember but I think it will help me take a step back each day and enjoy the little things each day!
Feel free to join along! I realize I am on day two but that just means I have to share the first two with you now!
So, here is my view today:
We are watching a friend’s husky for a while. His name is Halo. He is 9 years old and completely a sweet heart. Faelyn and Halo get along great! TJ also got a whitewater kayak yesterday and has been so excited about it that it hasn’t left the house to be stored in the garage yet. Lol.
This is my favorite holiday as well as probably my all time favorite movie. I am such a sap, I’m aware lol. So, when I saw that I needed to take a picture of it, I decided it needed to be watched too. Lol. So TJ sat through it with me this morning. Definitely helps get me in the holiday spirit!
Keep checking back to see more of me getting into the holiday spirit!
Hope you guys are ready for Christmas!
