I'm Done

I can't believe it is December 9 and I am saying this, but I am DONE Christmas shopping.  AND my Christmas cards are DONE and being mailed out tomorrow!  I can't believe I am done with both of these things already.  Oh, and my tree is up and decorated, and so is my house!  Sorry to brag, but seriously this never happens.  I just had to document the fact that I am done shopping so early this year, because it might be the only time this ever happens.

Funny Christmas Season Ecard: Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is an extreme couponer to do all of my shopping for me.
All of those things might be done, but I still  have piles of laundry to do, dust bunnies rolling across my floors, and dirty dishes in my sink.  But hey, my Christmas stuff is done ;)

We finished up our Christmas shopping on Saturday after I got out of work and I even have a few gifts wrapped already.  The rest of the weekend was spent grocery shopping, watching football, and making this DELICIOUS chili.  It's the first time I've ever made chili and it was soooo good.  You can find the recipe here.  I can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch this week.

That pretty much sums up my weekend.  Happy Monday!


  1. Congrats on finishing all your shopping! I still have a few more things to get. And our cards are almost done but I forgot to buy stamps, lol. That chili looks sooo good! Bring me some? ;)

  2. Finishing up with Christmas shopping is the best feeling ever! I have a few more things to get but I am not stressing over it like I was last year at this time! I know what all I need to get still and know that it will be easily found. No biggies!

    That chili looks DELICIOUS! I love chili! I think my husband is souped and chili'd out because every week since like October I have been making a soup or chili. He wont eat anything with corn in it though, so I am super jealous of this! I love corn!

  3. I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet :/ I guess I should get on that sometime soon lol

    That chili looks delicious btw! I'm making some for dinner this eveing and I am very excited about it :)

  4. Awesome work! We haven't even started shopping yet - this is the latest I've been in a long time and honestly, it's so hard for me to even believe that Christmas is so close! Where is this year going?!

  5. You go!! I have not bought one Christmas present or have designed Christmas cards's going to be a thrown together type of Christmas this year.

    I just saw a Chili recipe on Barefoot Contessa and now I'm craving it. Yours look amazing!
