Making Christmas…Time to Give Them Something Fun they’ll Talk About For Years to Come…


I think you guys can tell that my favorite movie is “Nightmare before Christmas” right? Lol. 

Thank you everyone for your questions!! I will be working on those shortly & will have the answers posted ASAP! The answers I’m looking for were about the condo. I was APPROVED!!! FINALLY!! All I need now is the lawyers to talk so I can get a Closing Date! I’m BEYOND ecstatic. I’m afraid to be too happy (*knock on wood*) because I don’t want to jinx the chance of getting a closing date in before Christmas so maybe I can have a lil tree in my new place. But all the paper work is & we are moving forward. Whew! So sorry my blogging & commenting has been uber lite, but things will get back to normal very soon. =)

Yesterday & today I somehow got completely into the Holiday Spirit. I usually like the deciding on what to get people & that’s it. This year I’ve trudged my way into the stores & Sales & actually are almost done with all the buying & EVEN did some wrapping already! I know…last year I really wasn’t into Christmas at all but I’m not sure what’s got into me. I think the condo coming to a positive almost conclusion is boosting my morale. Anywho…

Here are 2 things that have made my Christmas so far Awesome & Easy!! =)

Kraft Jet-Puff Gingerbread Men Marshmellows!! They are soo cute!!!! They even taste like gingerbread cookies. I don’t know how they did it but I love it. I got them in a Walmart Super Center so ya know.
 

“Who wants to be in my Hot Cocoa tomorrow?” Me, Me!
 (Maybe I’ve had too much caffeine today, I can’t believe I just wrote that!!!)
  
 Scotch Pop-Up Tape Dispenser
I will NEVER wrap a present without one of these again! I’m a clutz when it comes to gift wrapping so this is made it so much easier!!
 
 Here are some presents I’ve already wrapped! I love the lil Christmas bear paper. =)

Ohhh yeah I got tons more to do so I’m hoping this Christmas Energy continues. I have to put up my parent's Christmas Tree ASAP! As this week goes on I’m finding out more information & soon a Closing Date too. Whew…almost over.  Almost...

What’s made your Christmas a lil Easier this year & Have you found anything Awesome like those Marshmellows? =)

I love Tim Burton tho for me its a toss up between The Nightmear Before Christmas and Corpse Bride (I made the most fab Corpse bride costume last year).
The thing that made christmas so good this year for me is internet shopping! Every thing delivered to my door while I drink hot chocolate and marshmellows!

Krystal said...

you sound so excited i feel like i must wish you merry christmas!!!!!!!!

Amanda said...

Haha, those marshmallows are adorable!

I know exactly how you feel re: gift wrapping. I'm not the best, but I know I have to do it. I'm constantly reaching over myself to get the tape, then the scissors, and it's just a mess. What a simple solution!

Kris said...

I'm a huge fan of Nightmare too! It was on the other night... even though I own it. hehe

Good luck with the condo!

Nothing wrong with quoting a little Jack.
I wish I could find something as awesome as those marshmellows because I want them so badly!
What has made Christmas easy for me this year is that I know exactly what to get everyone. I hate shopping and not having a clue as to what to buy,because I will go overboard.

Amanda said...

Oh yay!!! I'm so excited for you about your condo!! I was reading through your older posts trying to catch up going 'Did she get the condo?!'

How exciting! I hope you get it before Christmas!!!

Christina In Wonderland said...

Woohoo on the condo! Nice. :)

I too love The Nightmare Before Christmas. I watch it at least twice every year as tradition. At least. But not limited to twice. Lol.

Amiee said...

I think I need to start wrapping presents to get more in the spirit!

daniela said...

Ya congrats!!!! Hope all the final details work out smoothly :D

I'm having a real hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year, and haven't done any shopping. And i don't have any ideas at all. I think that's the big problem :(

Hopefully soon :D

Woo hoo fingers crossed on the condo.

I was actually supposed to go see nightmare tonight at a theater in the burbs but it got canceled! Apparently the reel didn't get there in time. So disappointing.

Meredith said...

I've passed those marshmallows a buttload of times at wal-mart but kept thining, "there's NO WAY they're any good!" well, now i know! I SO want to try them out. AND congrats on the condo approval!! :)
YOURS, MINE AND OURS

Meri said...

I might brave the foot of snow we got overnight to seek out those marshmallows! Those would be sooo good in hot chocolate too...
