Man, I love November so much I could make out with it. It’s the official start to the holidays, packed with parties, and finally truly boot and sweater season. I could give or take sandal season, but boot season? Bring it on.
November is also the busiest month of the year by far, and that kind of stresses me out. For instance:
My birthday is Nov. 9th (yes this Wednesday, for those who care)
Piper’s birthday is Nov. 10th (yep, the day after mine)
Gage’s birthday is Nov. 20th.
Then we have Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Yes, all holidays. Right?
Also, it appears we’re either gone or have company in town every single weekend for the foreseeable future.
Did I forget to mention that November is the official start to Ugly Sweater Season? The season is short, about 2.5 months long from beginning to end, I have have fugly sales goals this year.
Your ugly purchases help fund the DesignHER Momma family Christmas of 2011.
May people have asked about my model, or “talent”, as I like to call him. Yes, it’s my husband Michael. Yes, I pay him in tasty beers. And yes, he also goes to the post office for me. We’re a team, and I hope he doesn’t get head lice or anything. (I kid, I kid, my sweaters are cootie-free)
And in my spare time:
Oh, and you can find me over at CafeMom talking about “finding 5 minutes for me“, which sometimes is pretty much unattainable.
And I’m always up to something over at The Curvy Girl Guide. Last week I got ripped to shreds for bashing a baby snot sucker. After getting flamed in the comments, I now want one. Oh, did I mention my birthday is on Thursday? Snot funny.
And right now, my favorite review place, Simple Reviews is hosting their 12 days of Christmas. For the next 12 days, there will be something insane like 3 giveaways a day. Go over there and win something sweet.
Did I mention I’m 31 weeks pregnant? Yeah, that too. Gestation takes up a lot of energy.
In other news, I’ve started a DesignHER Momma Facebook page that I would be honored if you all would “like”. I promise to be only mildly annoying.
So, how you doin’?
