Glass half full!

Well - last night was disappointing to say the least...maybe disappointing doesn't quite cover it...heartbreaking may be more accurate.  The fun fluffy big flakes of snow I had seen earlier in the day were short lived and for the rest of the night it was just plain rain and ickiness out.  Not even freezing rain...plain, old, boring, regular rain.  Boo. 

Just an hour and a half, maybe two hours down the road, my brother-in-law was getting bombed with a record breaking amount of snow.  Seems cruel to be so close and to get nothing.  Perhaps my snow dance was more frightening than motivating...hmmm...must work on that for next time.

BUT - on the bright side of things, I decided to take the opportunity to do my last minute Christmas shopping.  This tiny turn of fate actually worked out in my favor.  Most people stayed home cuddled up, not wanting to dare going out which made the shopping very easy and pleasant.  I can now officially say I am done with my Christmas shopping...WOO HOO!  And finished without the crowds which really is the best "glass half full" scenario I can think of.

And obviously I am up early this morning, back at my everyday job, hoping to finish up on some of my busy season work in the hopes of not having to work tomorrow and enjoying the holidays.  Wish me luck...I may need it!

In other random tidbits - If you haven't yet read Kim's review of the book Beautiful Creatures - you really should!  She has convinced me to not only go out and buy this book for myself, but as a gift for my sister as well!    

So on the list of stuff for this afternoon - is going to the bookstore, finding a new copy of Love Actually to watch tonight and hopefully going with my family to see some Christmas lights and a fun hay ride.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and thanks for reading!!!


  1. I hope your weekend goes great!

  2. I hope you had a good weekend, even if the snow went away. : (

    You'll have to let me know what you think about Beautiful Creatures. I'm anxious to hear! : )

  3. Thanks you two! It was a fun one...but seriously short! Isn't that always the case? I'm hoping to start Beautiful Creatures soon Kim and I'll definitely let you know what I think! I loved your review!
