ONE: green cup > red cup
Yes, I said it. I am the one blogger who prefers green cups to red this time of year! Panera lattes trump Starbucks every time in my book. Plus, there is a BIRD on their holiday cup. I die! This little guy was a highlight of my day on Wednesday. I was running around to all sorts of hearings most of the day, and this provided the perfect and most festive fuel.
TWO: treats for Mango
At one of the parking lots I frequent for various hearings, the parking lot attendant is SO nice. He always takes care of me and makes sure I have a spot closest to the courthouse. I’m taking him some Christmas cookies today as a little thank you. Hope he likes them! Oh yes, and his name is Mango – how awesome is that?
As someone who has always loved current events, I just can’t help but get swept up in the drama surrounding Phil Robertson these days. There are so many CRAZY stories out there, and it seems like everyone on my Facebook news feed certainly has an opinion to share. The whole thing has blown up in such a major way. I’ve kept my mouth shut so far, but I did re-tweet this little gem yesterday from our pastor.
FOUR: Project Life
Have y’all heard of Project Life? A co-worker first told me about it, and then yesterday I saw that one of my favorite brands, Emily Ley, designed a Project Life layout. I already know that a 2014 goal of mine will be to get our pictures organized for 2011 – now. I’m debating a photo book that I can create online and have printed and bound, but now the former scrapbooker in me is very tempted to explore Project Life. I took a screen shot of this on FB yesterday to remind myself to check into it a little more. Has anyone done the Project Life scrapbook before?
FIVE: December’s card
Despite our ongoing mail debacle that I posted about yesterday, we did get my mom’s last monthly card of 2013 in the mail recently. Isn’t it cute?! I can’t wait to see what she’ll come up with for next year.
