tuesday ten ~ to dos

this week is going to be a big week. :) here's ten things i need to get done...

1 ~ finish my wreath. i started a christmas wreath, but i need to finish it now that it's acceptable to put out christmas decorations. of course it's beach themed... here's the original inspiration.


2 ~ schedule the big hair cut. it's time to do the chop on my hair. i'm excited and nervous, but i measured the other day, and 8 inches is nothing compared to how long my hair is. i might even get crazy and do 9 inches ~ if i'm feeling fiesty :) i really am happy to be giving up my locks for someone else.


3 ~ cook a couple meals. i am going to make us blueberry muffins for breakfast, and potentially lasagna for dinner. that would check meals # seven and # eight off my list. sooo this to do MUST happen.


4 ~ build a buffet. that's right folks ~ i ordered it. i couldn't wait any longer, and the second hand styles ended up not working out due to measurements or the crazy prices the sellers were asking for. my new one should be here today! i can't wait, and glad i bought when i did because now it's sold out.


5 ~ shop for christmas. i started my list of gifts for the family & the mister! this year the mister and i will be filling each others stockings. normally i just fill both of ours, but this year he's going to join in and fill mine. don't you just love making christmas list for others?


6 ~ doctor appointments. this week will be full of doctors, needles, and other fun, but it will all be worth it when i get back to feeling 100% again. cross your fingers that all goes well. (to everyone who's been sending me messages of well wishes, i truly truly appreciate it. you all touched my ♥)


7 ~ clean the bungalow. i'm messy... seriously messy. i have always been this way, and somehow i don't see myself changing. this week i want to clean out our storage unit, and my closet. time to get organized for the holidays! unfortunately for the mister, i don't look this good when cleaning, but maybe someday.


8 ~ make ornaments. we are starting a new tradition where every year we each pick out a special ornament for the tree. he picked out a cute reindeer and i chose a star, but i haven't been able to find one that i love for izzy. soo i'm going to attempt a ceramics project :) we will see how mine turn out, but here are a couple pieces i like.


9 ~ play with friends. since i've been stuck at the house, i haven't been able to see anyone lately. hopefully this week, i'll make it out for some lunches, drinks, and/or dinners. i would also love to see burlesque with some ladies because there is no way i'll be able to drag the mister too it. 


10 ~ plan my birthday giveaway. i did a giveaway for my first blogging birthday, but in order to celebrate my actual birthday (december 24th), i will be hosting a little giveaway in december too. i just need to figure out what that gift will be! oh yeah, and i will be turning ...


what's on your to do list??

My goodness, what a fabulous to do list! I hope all of your appointments go well and that you're feeling much, much better so you can enjoy all the wonderful other things you're planning!

(If you can believe, John came home yesterday to find me watching trashy TV and refolding all the clothes in the closet-in my nightie! That photo totally made me giggle remembering it!)

Your blog is like a sensual puzzle, and I just love this christmas post! Thanx for comment & for being there in my blog world !!!

And don't forget this..... Never worry about the size of your Christian tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall!

Peace & Love
