Jinx or no jinx, I’m sure that it will get much, much colder before winter comes to an end in March…

The Christmas Eve Agenda

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! And I’m so NOT ready..!

As is tradition, my dad and I will be going shopping for my mom tomorrow. If you missed my post about my favorite Christmas traditions (including the Christmas Eve shopping excursion), you can check it out HERE. Though, this year I’m a little nervous that my anxiety will get the better of me. Plus, we have NO idea what to get her, hahaha… okay, I lie, we have ONE idea…
