Just a few more days until those guests come knocking at your door for Christmas dinner! Are you ready?
The answer to this is probably not. There is so much to do to get ready for this holiday, and if I’m honest, rushing around is part of the fun! We’re hosting Christmas dinner this year, and I am SO excited! It’s going to be a wonderful small group, just my parents, my mother and father-in-law, and my brother-in-law. Plus me, Dave and the girls. Seven adults- I don’t think I’ve ever had such a small and intimate Christmas dinner. This is right up my alley.
Is there anyone out there that doesn’t love this time of year? Honestly. There’s just something so magical about December. The smell of eminent snow in the air, the warm glow of lights that adorn the homes you normally would pass by without noticing, and the excitement of holiday preparations that we so carefully plan for months in advance.
I just love this time of year. There’s so much excitement and anticipation in the air. Holiday parties, making cookies, wrapping presents, and LOTS of shopping! But if you’re anything like me, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the holiday gift guides out there, and stressed out by the money you’re shelling this time of year. For all of my budget conscious readers out there, I’m here to give you a few tips on how to save money this holiday season, while still making the most out of this magical and precious holiday.
