    I figured out what to get the kids for Christmas from eachother! I was using my toys r us groupon and they had Princess stuff buy one get one half off so the girls have matching Cinderella plushies. I got my brothers Christmas present for $1 (Trivial Pursuit Bet You Know The Answer). Morgan is getting a security blanket since we cant find his and Savannah is getting one because she LOVES blankets and I hate carrying around full ones. They will gift those to eachother. Now I have to figure out Bev to Morgan but that should be easy. Morgan got Bev Chutes and Ladders.

    We also have our lights up and some of our inside decorations.

    We made it to Savannah, Georgia and are stopped for the night. We left about 3am and we stopped for breakfast and lunch and potty breaks and got here about 3 pm so we did pretty well. Hannah was a super trooper. I think she only asked a couple times when we would get to the hotel, not bad for a twelve hour trip. Never complained, just watched her movies or listened to music.

    up in the morning to finish the last leg of o ur trip :)

    Dutch Santa Claus is awesome.

    Also, all the people in the Canadian dutch association here are super nice, which is awesome :D

    And it only took me nearly 3 hours to realise they weren't speaking English LOL

    Trader Joe's has some for 99c.. I got two for the kids. The grocery stores had some here too (the chocolate is probably not very good though).

    Dyed my hair last night and I kinda love it.

    Went to the bar tonight for a friend's birthday party and hadn't told anybody, so I walked in, kind of hovered in the background of the table my friends were at, and waited.

    My friend looked at me, did a double take, then yelled "HOLY ****!"
    I can always count on her for the best reactions, LOL. She walked up at the bridal expo when I was modeling a dress for David's Bridal and was almost crying, LMAO.

    They're all over! Ask for advent calendars in any grocery store, trader joes, world market...or grab one on amazon. Dirt cheap.

    Where do you shop!!! Lol Target has them for like $2. Walgreens has them too. The chocolate is cheap and kind of gross but they're still enjoyable.

    Costco had AWESOME advent calendars last year. They were gigantic, the pieces of chocolate were big and GOOD quality chocolate and some were caramel filled and just.... nom. And every day it was something different, which made it awesome, because the Target ones are like "oh today is a square piece. And tomorrow is a square piece. And so is the next day..." Super sad they don't have them again this year!

    Daisy marched with Chris & I in the Christmas parade with basset hound rescue. She was a trooper, walked the whole way, and was a hit - I could hear people talking about "the cute little one" "the little old one" etc <3

    Also, my fiancée is amazing and I need to just remember that, even when he's having a bad day and is grumpy, he has an incredible heart & always seems to come through for me when it counts. <3

    Heading home, and it always makes my night that much better when the bus driver notices I am NOT drunk and assumes I was working so they let me on the bus free :D
