... So I made Christmas crafts. I whipped a few stockings to donate to The Festival of Trees gift shop. I can't believe it is already that time of year again. I opted out of being on the actual committee this year, so donating a few things to sell is the least I could do. I love doing it, but maybe next year. They are all tagged up and ready to be turned in.

I turned 30 yesterday and it was rather anti-climatic. Cohen bought me a book and Mike gave me a gift certificate to use at Sego Lily Spa. Ahhhh... I can't wait to get a maternity massage, whatever that is. I know it will be blissful. I also voted, shopped for new jeans (maternity... but still... they are new) and shoes for snow, worked, went with Mike to vote, ate a gyro (hello heart burn), renewed my temple recommend, watched The Hulk, and watched Obama win... in that order. Mike's mom made me dinner on Sunday and I am going to out dinner with my family tonight. I was just happy to leave the last few weeks of my 20's behind. It was a rough few weeks and my 30's are already looking up.


The fantastic blog, Petit Elefant (link on my side bar), is having a FANTASTIC give away. Enter for a chance to win a family photo shoot with Nicole Carman. It is valued at $175. Enter by November 10th. Head over there NOW!!! What would it hurt?


I just got my new Scentsy in the mail today from my lovely distributer and old neighbor, Kristen Klingler. Ah... I am enjoying the Snowberry now. I wish my house looked as good as it smells. She'll ship anywhere so visit her site and share the love. I think this would be a great Christmas gift for anyone.

Those stockings are beautiful! I love the accent fabric.

Sounds like you had a really busy birthday. I definitely hope your thirties start better than your twenties ended. You deserve the best. (Sorry for saying something so cliche, but I really do mean it.)

I have to get football season behind me before I can even think of holiday crafts.

Liz said...

Cute stockings! Thanks for the family photo sitting giveaway link. That would be sweet!

Kristen said...

Lori, I love your stockings!! The accent fabric is so cute! I wonder If I could actually make something as simple as a stocking?? I am glad you like your scentsy stuff and thanks for mentioning my site! I owe you!

Stephanie said...

Oh Lori....I am such a bad friend. seriously! I am the worst with birthdays. Blame it on Genell though. She is my birthday calendar and failed to remind me! Anyway, sorry i missed it but I hope it is a great yer for you! Let's have a playdate soon!
