All I want for Christmas is..a nap.

So. Tired. Can't...hardly...keep...eyes...open...

This week has been crazy, to say the least. My job doesn't get much busier than at the end of a year. And not only is 2011 wrapping up, but 2012 is looking good (as in busy, loaded, packed with work to be done!). I can't seem to shake the tired headache my body is holding on to. Between working long hours, Christmas shopping, baking for friends and family, attending Christmas parties, and planning one of my own on Friday, sitting down is not an option. Sitting down = falling over = my eyes shut and do not re-open. :)

Yes, you heard me right. We are hosting our first party in the new house! We will have about 20 Hintons over on Friday night (Christmas Adam) to celebrate Christmas, family, love, and new homes. I'm really excited, but the stress of cleaning, decorating, and cooking is getting to me. I'm sure everything will be spectacular, but it's my house so of course, I'm a mess!


I'm thinking about putting a few of these guys around my house and the deck outside, but with red and green ornaments at the bottom, for decoration. What do y'all think? Thanks Pinterest for the idea!

Also, I'm so excited to announce that a very special package is out for delivery as I type and will be joining us at our new house this evening! Luke is on his way to San Antonio to pick up the newest member of our family, Boss!! Boss is an 8-week-old maltipoo puppy and our new baby. He is a first generation maltipoo. His momma is a purebred poodle and his daddy is a purebred maltese. We are THRILLED for Brooklyn to finally have a playmate and we just know that they will adore each other. I can't wait to see my new baby when I get home from work today!

{Expect many, MANY more pictures soon!}

I am sure that with two babies and working half a day Friday, this dog momma has no chance of that nap. I am taking off next Tuesday though, so somewhere in my 4.5 days off for the holidays I hope to squeeze in a little snooze time. Wish me luck!

P.S. Have any of you hosted Christmas parties so far this season? If so, any tips for this first-timer?
