Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve Friends!
This holiday season I am working 7 shifts out of the 9 days over the holiday week... I'm not even halfway through the stretch and I am already feeling completely overwhelmed and physically exhausted. Being a certified insomniac doesn't help the matter and I've been going on virtually no sleep for the past few days. As a matter of fact I've been up since 3am and I have to head back to work tonight for another 3 day stretch of 12 hour shifts.... Merry Christmas to me huh? :(

On a happier note, I did manage to put my tree up though! Being the Starbucks fanatic that I am... I have Starbucks Christmas ornaments all over. This one is one of my favorites :) I also was able to take part in a gift exchange with Chris' family yesterday and I got a gift card to Cinnabon (heaven) and a Disney ornament! I also got in some good call of duty playing with the boys which is always fun!

We also have the wonderful Charlie Brown tree set up with its single ornament.
Charlie Brown is probably my all time favorite holiday movie because I think there is so much to learn from that one cartoon. Such a good message and in many ways I feel like most of my life I have been a Charlie Brown tree myself.
I put the Charlie Brown tree next to one of my favorite prints by Vol. 25. She has a great shop on Etsy that you should all go checkout. For me it is a great reminder to stay thankful and this holiday season that is no exception. There is so much to be thankful for... I am truly blessed in so many ways. So today I wish for each of you to have a wonderful holiday season filled with laughter, family, friends, love and a gratefulness for each day we are able to wake up and live life to its fullest. 
I am so thankful for each of you!
Merry Christmas Everyone :)


  1. I love your Charlie Brown tree and prints- the whole table is so cute!

  2. When you posted the picture of the charlie brown tree before I thought those prints were beautiful. Thanks for the link. I'll be sending you good thoughts to make it through your long stretch! Take a deep breath. Remember you are loved.

    Merry Christmas, lady. I hope it's fabulous.

  3. Merry Christmas, Andi! We're so glad you could spend a little time with us. We know that your service at the hospital will make Christmas cheerier for many people in unfortunate circumstances. God bless you for your labor of love. Looking forward to the next time we see you...
