I feel like summer was supposed to be slow and relaxing for me and all of the sudden, fall is here. I'm afraid that by the time I put out my fall scented candles and start my baking the fall will have happened! I've promised myself I will try to be organized enough going into this fall to not let anything slip through the cracks and still manage to enjoy my favorite time of year - football season.
I began my Christmas shopping last week. Yes, you read that right - Christmas shopping. On my way home from KC I started making a list of Christmas present ideas and in a flash of brilliance I already bought Eric's last week (exactly 2 days after we finally finished buying each others birthday gifts for our matching Virgo birthdays). I am on it people. Christmas will not catch me off guard.
Actually the main reason for this is budgeting. I'm getting back into a my budgeting skinny jeans and it's been an adjustment after a budgetary 'fat month' in August. So, that being said I'm trying to peck away at my Christmas list in advance so that I won't be borrowing from other categories come November. Anyone else relating to this right now?
I'm having a big debate about Christmas cards this year but I'm leaning towards taking a year off. We shall see.
I've booked my Thanksgiving flights (into Indy and out of Louisville) so that I can see both my families...you know my biological one and my bestie one. And I've started my Christmas shopping, determined my neighbor gifts, and I bought my first fall scented candle. So now I guess I guess the only thing left to do it finish my fall cleaning (you know, like spring cleaning but in the fall) and get myself a pumpkin flavored something or other.
How are you welcoming fall this year?
