December Daily 2014 {Day 5 + 6 + 7}

Hi guys!

So its true...Monday posting is just not my favorite thing in the world. I try, I really do, but Mondays are for catching up for me, and I just prefer to post on Tuesday :)

How was your weekend?

Ours was filled with Christmas-y goodness, which is on my DD pages. And also a little house stuff.

Remember this house that I loved but was iffy on the location? Well, AJ and I went back and thought we were okay with the location, and of course, in love with the house. As in, ready to put an offer in kind of love.

But I was still nervous and needed a sign that it was okay. And instead, I got seven signs that it definitely wasn't! Yes, seven. I apparently needed to be hit over the head!

And the last sign was totally obvious - the house is probably going to get another offer that is better than ours, and we aren't willing to meet that one at this point in our home search.

The message was received, loud and clear. And I thought I'd be sadder, but really, we have until next October to purchase a home under our relocation, and the inventory is only going to get bigger as the holidays end and spring approaches. I'm looking forward to finding a house that fits us perfectly, a house where I can't wait to put an offer in and don't have those "is this the right thing?" feelings!

So on to the Christmas things!

I did things a little differently this week. The pictures from Friday were taken earlier in the week, but it was more of a general Christmas story, so it could really apply anywhere. And the pictures from Saturday are actually from Sunday, but we had wanted to put the lights up on Saturday except it rained all day!

So I mixed it up.
"There are some things that just signify that Christmas is really here - the tree, the lights, Home Alone and Christmas Vacation, and the Hershey Kisses jingle bells commercial.
This year, I saw it for the first time when I was flipping channels. I heard the familiar sound of the last bell ringing and whew-ing. I was so excited and texted AJ immeidately!
I wonder when it started being aired, it feels like its been around forever - and I hope it is!'

"The Christmas lights. I love putting up the Christmas lights. Even though we don't have a huge outside space, we still put lights on the balcony. I love to see them shining brightly at night. Everyone's decorations make the long (and cold!) nights seem so magical at Christmas!"

"Spending the day at the Troy Victorian Stroll."

There wasn't too much to say about the stroll. I'm sure I'll talk more about it in my Project Life album. To be honest, it didn't live up to expectations and I didn't feel like talking about that since it was negative! But I did want to include it in here, since we did it and it was a Christmas event!

Do you stick to recording stories exactly on the day they happen, or do you mix them up?

Did you just take your own pics of the commercial on t.v.? Great capture! I need to try that.
