This weekend was the perfect ratio of productive and relaxing.
Productive & relaxing activity #1: shopping. Um…shopping for myself, unfortunately. It just hasn’t set in yet that 1. Other people might be buying me gifts and 2. I need to figure out what I’m buying for other people and probably put my resources into that.
That damn Williams-Sonoma.
Actually, damn every company who sells items with reindeer on them. I’m a sucker for a good buck.
Productive & relaxing activity #3: updating my Christmas music. OK I don’t know how productive this activity really is, but I like to add a couple new Christmas albums to my collection every year. My additions this year are: (Red) Christmas by The Killers (modern), What a Night! by Harry Connick, Jr. (classic), and Christmas Cheers by Straight No Chaser (an a capella group — fun).
It was quite a wonderful weekend and now that we’re back to the daily grind, I wanted to start the week off by announcing the winners of the two giveaways!
First, the ten randomly-selected winners of the Florida grapefruit tote and water bottle giveaway.
#30. Samantha M
#14. Angie (so excited to see this win since she actually made the recipe over the weekend!)
#71. Heidi Nicole
#46. Becca S.
Second, the three randomly-selected winners of the Flytrap giveaway!
Ladies, I will be in touch in the next couple days to get your mailing addresses. And thank you to everyone who entered! If you didn’t win, don’t despair — I have at least one more giveaway planned for this week.
Productive & relaxing activity #4: making gift guides. Finally! I love gifting but organizing the whole thing takes effort. I finally got around to doing it, so now maybe I can stop buying things for myself and start doing some holiday shopping. Anyway, the first gift guide is comin’ atcha later today!
