I have officially kicked off Christmas shopping! Every year, I say I’m going to get done early, and every year, I’m scrambling the week before Christmas. But I’m REALLY trying hard to change my ways this year. I’ve already bought 7 gifts, and Ben is completely done! I’m having everything delivered to my office, and I’m going to bring wrapping supplies in so that I can wrap everything before bringing it home. That way I don’t have to worry about someone walking in on me wrapping their gift and spoiling the surprise.
Lyric’s A Christmas Story the Musical opened last night. Because I’m now on the PR/Development Committee, part of my job is to take a shift working at the membership table selling raffle tickets, so I did that last night before the show and at intermission. Opening night is always a great night to see a Lyric show because there’s a post-show reception afterwards with champagne and snacks. Unfortunately, I was overtired from staying up late the previous night with a very sick friend, so I didn’t even stay for the party. The show was VERY cute, though, and I’m glad I went.
I bought new flannel sheets for our bed, and I can’t wait for them to arrive! The flannel sheets that we have currently are at least 10 years old, and I’m also not even sure they’re actually queen-sized, so they don’t stay on the bed at all. I’ve been stalking these sheets on Target for a while, and when they went on sale this week, I pounced! I’m a huge fan of flannel sheets during the winter months, so I’m excited to upgrade.
We had our first snow in Underhill last night. The first snow is always so exciting and magical, and it was lovely to wake up to this morning. I meant to snap a picture, but between already running late and needed to scrape said snow and ice off my car, I didn’t get around to it. There’s no snow in town though, so it will be nice to return to it after work tonight.
Have you had your first snow yet?
