Caroling is such a great group date! And it's free! Oh yeah!
We had a lot of fun doing this together. It's great for kids too. All of us bundled up and strolled down the streets of town singing merrily.
It's finals week for us, so not all of the couples could make it. Oh well, life happens right?
I love the look of surprise and happiness on peoples faces when they open their doors. It makes me feel all warm and squishy inside.
This is what Christmas time is all about right? Giving to others, even if it's not a tangible gift.
One sweet lady even gave us candy canes!
Why don't you go caroling too! There are other options besides walking down the street. Retirement homes and senior centers love for volunteers to come and sing. Sing in church or just sing at home! Get creative!
Welcome Christmas, bring your light...and lots of dates!
The LSAT is TODAY! Hubby is taking his test as I write.
I had no idea how strict the rules are concerning this thing. Test takers are only allowed to take a few things into the testing center and they must be in a zip lock bag. That means no notes from wives.
However, I got creative and found a way to leave some words of encouragement anyway.
Say hello to my pencil messages! Clever right? I thought so.
I grabbed some of Hubby's trusty No. 2 pencils and wrote some good luck messages.
Then I put them in his zip lock bag, all ready for the test. I may have to do this again. It was fun!
Good Luck Hubby! Just a few more hours and he is done!
Greetings from the most stressful week of my husbands life.
The poor guy has so much on his plate. That's why I am doing all that I can to help him out in anyway.
Including crafting for him. Seriously.
In my family, we draw names for Christmas gifts and this year we are all exchanging ornaments. The point is to have them sent before Christmas though. But with Hubby's hectic schedule, it was just another task on a long to-do list for him.
So, I generously decided to take over for him.
OK, so this may be for me just as much as it is for him. But hey, I'm still being helpful right?
Since our budget as college students is non-existent very small, I was in the market for a low cost or free ornament.
And I found it!
What do you think? Too cute right?
I found the idea on Turtles and Tails. Barb's pinecones look fantastic so I decided to give it a go.
I didn't have all the exact materials, so I just used what I had on hand at home. The bases for mine are old tennis balls.
