Busy, busy, busy!

4 days and counting! Is everyone done shopping for Christmas?

I am not! I have one person to buy a gift for, Jeff.

Every year, we go through this. I ask and ask him what he wants for Christmas, and every year, he says he doesn’t know. I was going to get him a coat. But, not now. Whitney and Tri gave Jeff a gift card to Cabelas specifically for a coat. I am back to square one, which is no where.

We are going shopping. Anybody that knows me is aware of how much I detest shopping, especially at Christmas time. I am an Amazon girl! But, it is too late for that! So, shopping it is. I am sure the crowds will be unreal! It seems like every time I go shopping, everyone else knows I am coming, so they all pack into the stores I am going to!

I also have to buy yarn, so look out Hobby Lobby! I am coming! I have two baby blankets to crochet! I am so excited. Our daughter, Whitney, is pregnant. Her and Tri are expecting their third child June! Whitney’s best friend, Ashley, a second daughter to us, is expecting a baby in May! She is having a boy, so I know the color of yarn I am buying to make his blanket. Whitney and Tri aren’t finding out what they are having. Since they already have a girl and a boy, they don’t want to know. They have all they need for this baby, boy or girl, so they want to be surprised this time. So, I am buying some neutral colored yarn for this blanket. I already have the pattern picked out. I am going to use the same pattern for both of them. I need to get started right away! I see many, many hours of crocheting in my future. I wouldn’t have it any other way! I am up early every morning, crocheting something! I enjoy the peaceful time of the early morning, relaxing and crocheting before beginning the day. I am excited for both of our girls! These two babies are sure to be friends for a lifetime!

I actually think I will enjoy this shopping trip! And, no matter now much or little fun it is, I am spending it with my husband. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Plus, we are going out to eat. Not fast food! Not a fan of that stuff. But a romantic date night out! So, shopping stress will be worth every minute!

Have a great weekend. There are only two weekends left in 2018. Enjoy them. Have a Merry Christmas. Make precious memories!
