Cheers to the Freakin' Weekend

Hey Everyone! Let the weekend begin! I have to get through 5 more hours & then I'll be on the road to my parents' house in Albany. Yay! I am so excited for this trip! We're going to drive into Jersey tomorrow & do some serious holiday shopping. You may be thinking, "You go shopping every weekend Bri, why is this so special?" Well I'll explain it to you with one word - NORDSTROM! That's right, we don't have one anywhere near us. I only get to go a few times a year & this weekend is it! I plan to shop until I drop & then pawn my daughter off on my parents so that I can get a good night's sleep. 

Other reasons I'm excited... 
  • I plan to drink out of a red cup all weekend long. If it isn't red, I expect it to at least have a festive design on it. Anything less will not suffice... 
  • My XM radio will be blasting holiday music the whole way to Albany. I'm sure my sister is going to love it. If you want to join in on the fun,  it's Channel 17. 
  • My mom has a few surprises for Ella. She won't tell me what they are, but my mom has awesome taste & let's get real here - presents for Ella are really presents for me at this point. 
  • My parents' house is decorated for Christmas! I got a start on our house last night, but I promise you it will not compare to my mom's decorating. She goes all out at both houses & I love it. 
  • We're making a pit stop at IKEA at check out a kid's play kitchen that I might get Ella for Christmas. She's getting so big & I can't wait to watch her open all of her presents this year! Last year she kind of just ate tissue paper, this year I know she'll get into it. 
Ok... I guess I'm just really excited to get into the holiday spirit! I hope you all get into the spirit too. Here's a little Buble to help it along... 


  1. Have fun on your shopping trip! It really starts to feel like Christmas for me when it's major shopping time.

  2. This sounds like so much fun! I, too, am a Nordstrom junkie, and look forward to trips there :)

  3. Oooo Nordstrom is so much fun when you haven't been there in ages! Hope you find some goodies! And yayyy Xmas!

  4. I've been listening to channel 17 since the holiday music first started... I LOVE it.
