I think I'm addicted. Since I've started mulling over what to get people for Christmas, I've probably been on Etsy everyday. Not great for productivity :) This is my husband rubbing off on me, but I like the idea of getting people gifts that not everyone in the world has (although there will always be a place in my heart for Target). I've bookmarked way too many things in the past couple weeks to post any here, but maybe when I narrow it down I'll list some of my favorite shops. Looking around on Etsy also makes me really want to be crafty! So I'm headed to Michaels today after I clean the mountain of dishes in the kitchen :/ And on that note...I've got to go start on the dishes.

Well I haven't posted in over a month, but I'm not too worried about it. I guess if I really want to look  back and see what was going on in our lives I should update a little more often. I just got back from a trip to Columbia, MO to see one of my best friends get married. The trip was more than wonderful and I got to hang out with my sister-in-law all weekend. 8 months is TOO long to go without seeing family! Now I'm even more excited about Christmas because it's closer now, and I'll get to see everybody again. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that it's killing me to wait until Christmas to see my cousin who is 5 months old now. Thankfully we get to Skype on a pretty regular basis so I can see him.

Also, my husband is wonderful. When I got home yesterday he'd picked up sushi for us and got me flowers...kind of. They were stems with a bunch of tiny pumpkins on them! I'd never seen anything like that and they were so cute :) Sorry for such a short, and probably boring post. I needed to make it quick because I've got to get back to work!
