When I get sad, I stop being sad, and be awesome instead... True story!

We all get those holiday blues, and as you've previously read, I had them pretty bad last week. But then I simply decided to not have them! Gotta love mind over matter ;)

Once I hit Cost Plus-World Market, everything seemed to fall into place. Joe and I found this year's additions to our awesome ornament collection (mine is blue and fuzzy; his is a little glass penguin)! We also bought our favorite candy and put it under the tree, ready to be eaten on Christmas as we rifle through our stockings! And we picked up super cute wrapping paper and gift boxes on our second trip there last night!

A day trip to Venice helped this month too :) Tanya helped in yanking me out of my funk with seaside Christmas trees, rollerblading Santas and a coffee shop open mic night. Thank you for that!
We had a little Christmas party this weekend as well. It turned out to be very cozy and quaint, which was exactly what we needed this weekend. I got to play video games with Caydan and drink my fair share of Gl├╝hwein!
Our tree is beautiful with the most perfectly placed lights; the hot coco has been plentiful, and I truly cannot wait to see the looks on my loved ones faces as they open their gifts this holiday season!

  2. Mind over matter is the only way to go. :)

    I had a lot of fun hanging out with you guys last Saturday night...cozy and quaint is definitely nice and I could talk to you guys for hours on end and never run out of conversation. :)

    And I'm glad you got out of your Christmas funk before the holiday had passed. :)
