My own little workshop...

Ok so.... Today was an awesome day. Awesome. I slept late. Woke up and ate a boiled egg and some toast because those are the only things my mother and I could find in this house. Got a shower. Got all comfy yet cute in a dress, with some leggings and cozy flats. Then me and Susie headed to Birmingham. We had only one thing on the agenda... Eat at Olive Garden. We had 3 bowls of salad and two dishes of dipping alfredo sauce. And waaay too many breadsticks to mention. :) We then ran into the Galleria and I bought her a prize from my Dad (who is currently in Texas working) while she was in the bathroom. I almost got caught. Then we headed home after spying the cutest dress ever and getting it on sale for $28 originally $99. Go us.  

Then Coco wrapped presents... for hours. Literally hours. Good thing I enjoy wrapping presents. I sat in my room and wrapped presents. Chase would stop in and chat then Susie. RD stopped by to get a key to the shop. Susan would come back in and chat... I never stopped wrapping. I had a system going. I even hummed a carol every now and then... but mostly listened to CSI. It stayed on a while then I enjoyed a rather disturbing Criminal Minds that I now wish I had not watched. ... anyways.... I got a lot accomplished. Every gift is ready except for 2 but they will handled tomorrow or for sure by Saturday. Oh and Ryan's final gift is somewhere on a UPS truck between here and South Carolina Not sure where because the UPS site is choosing to leave out the details. All I know is that for some unknown reason this package traveled North to Virginia and is currently not traveling South..... which equals not good... so we'll see....


Yah!! Almost finished!!! I cannot wait until Christmas... oh and there are more....

 These guys won't fit under the tree. Well they will but then I cannot open the door to the porch ... so they are posted up on the sidelines. :)

I am loving the brown wrapping and sorry - but am totally stealing it too! I'm going to paperworks tomorrow to buy enough to wrap all my gifts in it. Thanks for the idea :) Love you beautiful!!

I love the wrapping paper....I think next year will be done just like that! I've already bought for this year (but haven't wrapped)....I DON'T LIKE wrapping gifts.
