2 more days until Christmas!! YAY! I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season!
Saturday my parents came over in the morning and brought my grandma as a surprise! My dad had to hang a light fixture in the bedroom and fix some of our plumbing, so it was nice to see the family and hang out for a few hours.
Later that night, we went to Matt’s step-mom’s (Marcie) Christmas. It was ok, there was good food, drinks, and we ended up getting a gift, so the night wasn’t too crazy.
Sunday morning I got up super early to go to the outlet mall in Howell to exchange a purse at Coach that Matt had bought me for Christmas. I really like the purse, but it was HUGE… more like a giant tote bag. I had also gotten a 20% off coupon for Coach in the mail, but it could only be used in stores, so I figured I might as well drive up there. Well let me tell you what a good idea that was…
After exchanging my purse, buying the smaller version annnnnd another purse too, they still had to give me $16 back! Major score! They had a wicked sale going on, plus my 20%, it was well worth the hour+ drive up there! Since it was still early, I shopped a little at Old Navy and then said hi to my friend that is the manager of one of the stores there.
Here’s the bag that Matt had bought me (but it was in navy and the larger version), so I exchanged it for the smaller coral version. It’s perfect for the cruise!
Here’s the second bag that I ended up getting, but in the pink color below. It’s a smaller crossbody bag that will also be perfect for the cruise. I can see myself wearing it often, because it’s a neutral color that will work in all seasons, and it’s great for shopping because you don’t have to hold onto it!
This is the actual color the purse is, not green.
Sunday afternoon we went over to Andrea’s house (Matt’s sister) to exchange presents for his Dad’s side of the family. We had yummy drinks and food and the kids loved their gifts. It will be fun to see them open the rest of their gifts on Christmas with Matt’s mom!
Christmas Eve I have a half day, and then later that night we are going to Matt’s uncle’s house to hang out and have dinner. This is always a fun time because his dad’s side is really fun, and the kids get to see their cousins and play.
Christmas day we will open up presents at home, and then in the morning we will go to Andrea’s house again to celebrate Matt’s mom’s side’s Christmas. After that is done, we will go up to my Aunt’s house and celebrate my side’s Christmas and have dinner there. It’s a busy day, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. : )
How do you celebrate Christmas?
