I must say that I've put it off for a while, but wow! what a great movie!!! It really makes you stop and put all your "woes" into perspective. We are a family of surfers, so it was a great connection for us, but it's a great analogy for anyone.
I LOVE buying Groupon and LivingSocial deals, BUT I always forget that I have them! lol...Today I realized I had an Office Max and Old Navy Deal that were about to expire.
What makes this hard is that I don't have EITHER one of these around me. Now, Office Depot?? I visit them all the time to print up all the freebies and units I get from y'all. They know be my name and flashdrive - ha! What? Do you know how much faster it is for me to go to them rather than me trying to print all that up on my INKJET? I'd be waiting forever for my inkjet....
Does anyone else hit up a printing store?? Or do y'all do it at home?? I'd love to take a poll on that! But Office Max?? Nope....nowhere around. The nearest one is almost an hour away. So, I had to just go ahead and order some ink...grrr...I bought the darn thing so I could use it when I print up some things. Oh well. THEN, I realized my Old Navy one expires TODAY! And it was only good IN STORE. WHAT?? So I had to drive 30 minutes to our Old Navy store, IN CHRISTMAS mayhem, mind you, only to realize when I got there that I couldn't spend it on myself!! lol. Can't really buy myself something when I'm 9 months pregnant. And my daughter doesn't really need anything. I have NEVER had such a hard time spending money before. lol....
HOW did I NOT know this?? lol. Could it be that it's 80 degrees outside and my AC is still on?? Ugh. Don't get me wrong, my flops and I would miss each other greatly if it was cold - as Denise over at Sunny in Second has also said-ha! Us Florida girls really like our flops. And most of the time I don't mind that we don't have to shovel snow to get out of our house....but just for Christmas, couldn't it be cold??? I don't think we've ever had an actual Christmas day that was cold...I've tried willing it, but apparently, that's not strong enough to work. lol
OR...it could be that we're not doing Christmas ON Christmas. lol. Usually it's because of my husband's schedule (he's a firefighter and works 24 hours every 3rd day - so it's a 24/48 shift). But this year, my mom is coming in on the 25th, so we're doing Christmas on the 26th. I'm super excited for her to be coming- ever since they moved to Colorado, we don't always get to do Christmas together. Their first year that they moved away, not only were THEY gone for Christmas, but my husband had to work that day. You can't even IMAGINE the pity party I was giving myself that year. ha!!
Although, she has been pretty good about being here ever since Autumn has been born...I have to share my FAVORITE "Christmas" photo with y'all of my daughter. My mom and I like doing "Mother, daughter, daughter" trips, and Christmas at Disney was our first one. This is the picture we got of Autumn. hehehe

ANYWAY, as I realized the other day, I'm SO CLOSE to 200 followers!! I think once I get there, I'm going to do a giveaway. But as I said before, I don't have any units to give away since I've given everything as a feebie...lol. SOOOOO....how's about an Amazon or TpT Gift Card??? EVERYONE could use one of those, right???? Ha!!
SO, as soon as I hit 200, I'll do a giveaway post. BUT, I'd like to go ahead and do a poll..
Which would you prefer???
A) Amazon GC
B) TpT GC?
Leave a comment and feel free to pass along to your friends and have them follow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed this happens before Brooklynn comes, that way I don't neglect the giveaway! HA! So the faster I get to 200 the better for y'all, right?
From my family to yours, I wish you all the BEST Christmas ever! I am so thankful to have come across this little bloggy world; of all the fabulous teaching ideas and of the bloggy friendships I've made.
