Last Christmas I gave you my heart but the very next day you gave it away. December 18, 2007

I seriously suck at this whole blogging thing!! BUT!! I am going to try. Every time I write one I stop halfway through and delete it so this is your promise that that won’t happen this time. Even if this is the most boring thing you have ever read I promise that I will keep on truckin.

So today is Tuesday otherwise known as my day off! Also my payday so it means I always do a lot of napping and shopping. This morning I went shopping with my two friends named Michelle. We finished up a bit of Christmas shopping then went out for lunch, then to Chapters for awhile. After that I took a nice long nap. Leah and I stayed up way too last last night playing guitar so it was needed. I taught her her first 3 chords! And a song! Later I will go to Kent’s house and cuddle with him and try to set up my ipod. The instruction booklet seems to say (in picture form with no words) that I just hook it up to my computer, open up itunes and it will magically work… that did not happen. Nothing happened. So I need to figure it out.

 This morning I got the weirdest call from some solicitor, who seem to call here at least 3 times a day. They said they are marketing magazines to Thorndale, Ontario (haha if they had ever been to Thorndale they would know that right away that sounds way fishy) and for free they would like to send us a subscription to Style at Home Decorating, Canadian Living, and Lulu, this new shopping magazine that I think Erica reads sometimes. That sounded great to me, and all they needed to know were some of my hobbies. After I told them some hobbies they told me that in order to get the magazines we would have to subscribe to Macleans for only $2 a week. What a stupid catch. We already get Macleans from Oma, AND Michelle P bought her dad a subscription to Macleans for a year for Christmas and it only cost $48! So basically they are charging us double for something we don’t even want in the first place. UGH… I was looking forward to that Style At Home Decorating magazine coming here every month along with the House & Home we already get that I love. So that is the story about how I almost got us three magazine subscriptions for free but then found out that I am just naive and should not have trusted them in the first place.

I am looking forward to Christmas but it will be my first Christmas Day away from home. I’m going to Kent’s family’s house because he never gets to see them ever, and I haven’t even met most of his extended family. His nana is coming up from Cape Breton so I think it’s important that I meet her. I’m really hoping the weather cooperates because the last 2 times we’ve tried to go to Toronto, there has been huge snowstorms. Kent will be sooo sad if he misses Christmas with his fam. I’m really excited for it, especially to meet his 3 aunts that he says will be obsessed with me. I’m not really sure why… but… it will be interesting anyways!

Christmas is right around the corner! November 23, 2007

Filed under: Christmas,Family,shopping — Kate @ 12:22 pm

Ok maybe not RIGHT around the corner, being 31 days away, but I just can’t help but get excited for the season, especially since we now have snow on the ground. We are a family that LOVES winter, snow, skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing.. give us it all, because we just love it. And along with all the fun activities comes the Christmas parties and Christmas decorations! This is my first year with my own house to decorate and I am so excited. I think I’m probably scaring Scott with all the plans I have to decorate.

We already have a Christmas tree (fake) which was a wedding gift from the choir leader at my church (no it’s not up yet!)! I do love a real Christmas tree, but I can appreciate the fact that fake trees do not shed, plus with a cat that loves climbing trees I know that we really do need a fake tree. So to make up for the lack of Christmas tree smell I think I’m going to have an air freshener in the room that has the fragrance of pine or fir, just to get the smell in the air. I’m such a cheater. For decorations on the tree I’ve managed to hold off from buying anything yet because I don’t want a mis-mash tree. Because decorations can get pretty pricey, Scott and I are probably just going to go to Zellers or Wal-Mart and buy lots of decorations that all match. That way we don’t invest too much into this tree and can always change decorations later if we decide we don’t like them (or if the cat breaks them all).

Here are some cute house decorations I’ve found on the internet so far… Take a look and show me your favourite Christmas decoration for your house!

How cute is this table centerpiece? Fill it with candy(covered chocolate balls) or small ornaments.

I’m such a sucker for Pier 1 (as is Erica which you learned in her last entry)
