Tis the Season to be…Busy!

Oh, is that not how the song goes!?  Haha, I thought it was appropriate ;)  Things are definitely great busy around here, that just leaves little time for blogging.  Whomp.  But I'm back at it today & excited to link up with Faith tomorrow for her 6th Annual Christmas Card Carousel!!

Last week & this weekend was a whirlwind of fun!  I checked so much off my Christmas shopping list last Wednesday.  With a red cup in hand of course!  Then later that night I attended the 3rd Annual Charlotte Blogger's Ornament Exchange!  Classic Annie was sweet enough to host us all at her beautiful home!

Pretty ladies :)

It was so great to get to hang out & catch up with some sweet bloggy friends!  We of course keep up through our blogs, but it's fun to hang out in person, too :)

My little recaps of the 2011 & 2012 Ornament Exchange are linked accordingly!

I had every intention of linking up for Five on Friday last week, but we flew out Friday night to a snowy Michigan for Brandon's company Christmas party!

We're so thankful that work trips translate into a little extra Michigan family & friend time.  We stayed with B's sister & bro-in-law Friday night & got some sweet snuggles from our little baby man nephew the next morning before heading off to WOD with our friend Pauly B!

How cute is that…Brandon wore Paul's CrossFit Lake Effect
shirt & Paul wore B's CrossFit Pineville shirt!  They didn't even 
plan it!  They're too cute ;)

We met up with B's family again for some lunch.  Cute little man stole the show…

After lunch we drove out to Spring Lake to get all gussied up for B's work party!  I think we clean up pretty well…

It snowed all weekend in Michigan!  The little downtown of Spring Lake was just the cutest...

And inside wasn't too shabby either...

After the delicious dinner, dessert & obligatory speeches, there was obligatory karaoke!  The boys sang "I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and well, it was pitiful!  Haha

My group 1st sang "Rudolph" and then were called back for a sing off & we sang "Frosty".  Clearly we had some innate dance moves that won each of us a $100 Meijer gift card!!!  {You've probably never heard of Meijer, they're not down here.  But we will be spending that when we are back in a few weeks ;) }

It was definitely a fun little night!!  B's work crowd sure can throw a good party!  This was my 4th Christmas party with them!!  {2010 was pre-blog, 2011 & 2012}

We ate breakfast with the whole crew the next morning & then made our snowy trek back to the airport!  Can you believe that...

All that snow & we still managed to say on time!  It's a Christmas miracle!!  As always, we were glad to be back home to our white dog & Ben cat!

Are you busy hustling & bustling as well!?  I plan to wrap up a storm tomorrow, there will finally be presents under our tree!  And be sure to check back tomorrow to see our Christmas card :)
