Here's what we've been up to this week...
The weather was insane this week. It snowed from Monday night-Thursday and we got a grand total of 19 inches. It's the second snowiest November on record in West Michigan... and it all came within a few days!
Speaking of all of the snow, it totally put me in the Christmas mood. On Thursday, I finally caved and turned on the Christmas music and popped into a few stores to pick up some decor. I can't wait to decorate the new house!
I finally decided on a 2015 planner - because I know you were all so curious about what I was going to do ;) Last year I had the Erin Condren planner (see my review here) and this year I was contemplating between a few different options... but it came down to not wanting to shell out the big bucks. I ended up going with a Sugar Paper for Target planner and I love it! It's super cute, the perfect size to throw in my bag and it was a whooping $9.99.
Well, the white bedding came... and it went. I've always thought I wanted crisp, bright white bedding but I really didn't like it once I got it! I think I'm more of a cream or a muted pattern type of girl. Either way, the hunt continues. We are painting our bedroom in the next few days and hopefully that will help me make a decision - pictures to come!
Operation Christmas Child
Saving the best for last. Operation Christmas Child is something I think Nick and I are going to do on Sunday. Basically you just pack a shoe box filled with things for a boy/girl in a certain age range and then you drop it off at a drop off location near you (found on the website). Super easy and something that will make a huge impact on a child at Christmas. November 17-24 is collection week so we only have a few more days if you want to participate!
Also, I put together a list of other ways to give back last year so check that out here if you're interested :)
And lastly, today I'm guest posting over at Natalie's blog - sharing a little of 'what's in my bag' - so head on over there and say hi! Have a great weekend!
Linking up with Karli, Lauren, Jennie, Rebecca and April
