Thursday thoughts

Ok, this blog has totally gotten boring lately. I was just reading through it and I realized that I really need to come up with more interesting things to discuss! Life is pretty boring around here right now though. The kids are back to school, so I've mostly just been home getting things ready for Christmas.

I'm a huge online shopper. I rarely go to stores in town these days, I like to hunt for things online. So last week I put together Christmas lists for the boys, I went to and in about an hour I had my Christmas shopping done! No standing in line at the store, no driving all over town to find what I need, I just sat in my jammies and got everything done.

So that's all out of the way. The last couple of days I've been contemplating how I'm going to decorate the Christmas tree this year. About six years ago I bought some pretty Christmas tree decorations, like gold ribbon and beads, and I've been decorating the tree the exact same way since. It literally looks exactly the same every single year. This year I decided that I'm bored of that, so I'm trying to come up with some new ideas. Unfortunately I'm totally a creature of habit and I'm not very creative when it comes to decorating. Basically I came up with some red beads instead of gold beads. Oh yeah, I'm really getting wild now!! It's like the time I decided that I was bored with my jeans and t-shirt wardrobe so I decided I needed a change. After searching for my new look, I went REALLY wild and crazy and I bought some BLACK jeans! I know, I really need to calm it down, right?!
Anyway, it was too much of a change so I returned them. :)

So today I don't have a whole lot of anything planned. OH!! I know what I was going to post about!! I bought Clarissa some clothes today! Woohoo!

I've been super careful about not buying too many things for Clarissa up until now for a lot of reasons. Part of it is probably just to protect myself, because if I put together a nursery and buy a closet full of clothes and then for some reason the adoption falls though, I think it would kill me to have to get rid of all those things. I don't really see that happening, but you just never know. And partly I've waited because I'm SO freakin' excited to buy girl things that I think if I had started six months ago I would have enough stuff for 46 little girls by now.

But today I was at and they were having a good sale (30% off the clearance prices with coupon code HOHO30, in case you were planning to shop there today) and they had a few cute things that I just couldn't resist. I feel like now that we're getting closer it's OK to start buying a few things. I'm still forcing myself not to go crazy and buy a whole wardrobe, but it is fun to have a few things. I'm so used to having boys that I really don't even know where to start with girl clothes. It's been fun to pick things out though. We need a little pink in this house!

So there's all the stuff I have to talk about today. Still boring, right? I think it's time for us to take another exciting family adventure or something so that I'll have something interesting to blog about. Just wait until we finally get our referral and then I'll have a million exciting things to blog about, I promise!! :)
