It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Ahhhhh...December weekends.  Stores packed to the brim....endless traffic...lights on shipping on all the websites.  I kid, I kid.  I LOVE December.  I've been looking forward to cooler weather.  I love the lights, having a Christmas tree, and all the decorations.  I also have a LOVE for buying Christmas cards.  They're so cute!  I can't deny them.  I couldn't find any images online, but we found some cute "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" cards and some adorable ones from Borders.

We've had a very lazy, yet accomplished weekend!  Before this weekend, I had not started any Christmas shopping.  On Saturday, D and I braved Target.  It really wasn't that bad.  I scored some items for my siblings.  Check for gifts on all three sibs.  Still want to add another item for my brother.  Scored some items for D's family...well namely his/our niece.  Got some necessities for the house....purchased more Christmas cards ;)  Luckily I'm just chipping in money on gifts for my mom and dad.  After a long day of shopping, D made some dinner and we continued season 5 of Lost (thanks to Netflix!).

Today, we also slept in and D made breakfast (same as yesterday...I adore him on the weekends).  Then we sat around most of the day being lazy.  I did practically finish my Christmas shopping online.  I got everything I wanted for D online (and as usual spent way more money than I intended).  After both of us spending a lot of time on the computer, we finally got up and went out to eat some Mexican.  D says he's going to start eating healthy tomorrow.  I say every weekday that I am going to start (again) going to the gym in the mornings.  Maybe we'll motivate each other?  Then after Mexican we went to see the new "A Christmas Carol" in 3D.  Now let me tell you, it is rated PG but should totally be rated PG-13.  It was good and probably very true to the actual Charles Dickens' story.  I think it would be creepy and scary for children though.  Even with a parent, I would not want my sisters (ages 10 and 7) to see it.  The graphics were really great though.  Anyhow, score for a lazy weekend with my guy :)
