Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great first weekend of December! I can't believe that it is already here and the year is almost over! I kicked off my Advent Reads event this last week, I hope you have enjoyed it so far, especially with my addition of the Christmas Fun posts earlier in the day. Are you all ready for the holidays?! I definitely am not, I normally put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving but with Munchkin being sick constantly anymore and the chaotic schedule both Hubby and I have been keeping, I am ashamed to say we still have Halloween decorations up outside. And it even snowed last night so now I am really kind of embarrassed.  Oh well hopefully we get the tree up soon and then can finish cleaning up outside.

I am bracing for another busy week but am looking forward to some holiday fun with Munchkin, and hopefully Hubby if he can get some time when he isn't working.  Hope you are all having a great week!


  1. I just got my decorations up on Friday. That's pretty typical for me, though. I hope you get them up and that poor Munchkin gets better.

    1. I think I can deal with not having the decorations up, but I really need to get that scarecrow down from my front yard LOL! I don't know what is up with Munchkin but ever since he got Strep around Halloween he has been up and down with congestion, fevers and coughing. Hopefully soon he can get better!
