I've never really been into decorating for Christmas until I had Ivy. And now that she's almost 2yrs old (in Jan!) celebrating the holidays is totally fun. So, I've rearranged my livingroom to make room for our Christmas tree. Fake tree. I'm not a "real" Christmas tree kind of girl, I never have been. And, I totally agree with the Jim Gaffigan skit when he refers to chopping down a tree and putting it in your house "sounds like the behavior of a drunk man". Hilarious skit. Click the link below and you'll find out what I'm talking about...
I've been "crafting" a lot. It's so theraputic to make things. It's my "me time". Watch out friends and family....you're getting homemade presents! I've posted some more things on my Etsy site, so you should go check it out. Just click HERE!
I've been totally craving watching "28 Days Later" and so we are going to watch in a few minutes. It's been so long since I've seen it, and now that my bro is in town I have someone to watch it with at 1:00am. The ONLY time I really can ever enjoy a good zombie movie. Tj's too tired to stay up that late. So, I'm chugging this coffee and I'm off to watch some zombies.

I added a few more items to my Etsy shop. There is still a ton more to come, just figuring out the time to finish stuff between our snow adventures, cheerio incidents, and story time!

I guess the basis of most of my items would be comics. I've collected numerous older comic books over the past years and thought it'd be cool to incorporate that. I'm also making key holders and wall decor and maybe some greeting cards. I'm just making stuff that I personally would probably buy or be interested it. I'm not sure how far I will be taking these things, but this is only the beginning so we'll see.

Here are my options:
I'm leaning more towards the Blue. I'm always in all black, so I thought the Blue would be cool.

In other news, Elouise will be 2 months in a few days, and she's already sleeping at least 6 hrs straight a night. It's amazing. Last night she slept from midnight until a little before ten this morning. I feel more human when I get more sleep, so I'm happy she's in this routine so soon. She's so freakin pretty, I love her! She's so happy, too! .....most of the time!
And, Ivy is such a smarty pants. Her vocabulary amazes me and she has a such an imagination. She's also very girly! This morning, she let me paint her nails. She just sat there the whole time, and helped me blow on her nails til they were dry. She does this weird thing with her shirts.....she'll put one of her arms through the neck of the shirt along with her head. Like tonight, I put her in an old school Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sweatshirt (an awesome Goodwill find that TJ brought home when he used to work there like 5 yrs ago) that is huge on her but totally comfy. Here's what happened....
