Thankful Thursday: Christmas Edition Week 1

It's officially the first Thankful Thursday of the holiday season! This week i'm thankful for:

~Being done with my Christmas shopping! Last night's trip to finish up the kids was the last of it. I'm hoping that this means i'll really be able to relax and enjoy the rest of the season without the stress of shopping hanging over my head.

~Christmas decorations. I love that my house is decorated (except for the tree.) Whenever I come home it makes me happy to see the twinkling lights and whimsical knick-knacks scattered throughout our apartment. 

~Target. They have the best Christmas section, full of fun foods, gifts, movies, and household accessories to help brighten the season. 

~Christmas books. Stephanie and I snuggle up every night and read at least 3 Christmas books. She seems as enchanted with them as I am. (Be on the lookout for a list of our recommended children's Christmas books coming soon!)

~Christmas music. I love hearing it on the radio and listening to Stephanie sing along. We've been listening to it for so long now that she knows most of the songs!

~Mocha-mint coffee. Dunkin Donuts puts their bags of ground mocha-mint coffee out every year at Christmastime and I love it. It's just slightly minty and mocha-y, not too sweet and just...amazing. I always think I should stock up now for the rest of the year, but then I think part of why I love it so much is that it isn't available all year. 

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season so far! Let me know what you're thankful for, and link up if you have a Thankful Thursday post of your own.

*Thanks to Joanna from Baby Gators Den for hosting Thankful Thursday each week!


  1. On Saturday, Benjamin is going to be reading a Christmas book every night for bedtime from then until Christmas Eve! I'm so excited! We have 24 different books, one for each night.

    Also, Dunks has mocha mint coffee?! Um, I need it. I love love love Starbucks Peppermint Mochas but, they have 80 gagillion calories. I'm sure the Dunks version is much better!

  2. that mocha mint coffee is at the top of my grocery list this week - SO GOOD! YAY for the holiday season's arrival!

  3. Congratulations on getting all your shopping done. I haven't started, but I know what I'm getting. My youngest keeps asking to put up the decorations, but I wait for the tree to go up (one time getting all the decorations out).

  4. AMEN on Target!! I'm also very jealous you're done shopping already, I still have quite a bit :( Thanks for linking up!

  5. Wow, great job getting all your shopping finished! I love the holiday season, too. My husband is all about the Christmas music, which I think is so cute. We put our tree up last weekend and I love at night when I can see the tree lights from outside. Such a fun time of year. :) Great list!

  6. I admire organized shoppers like you who are done with their shopping already!

  7. I am so jealous you got your shopping done! I haven't even started!!! You are mighty organized!

  8. We have been listening to Christmas music for weeks now! I just love it! And free Pandora on my phone for bath time! Yeah!

  9. You are a rock star holiday shopper! I wish I was that far along! Good for you, girl.

  10. I have never had all of my Chistmas shopping done before the tree was up! Good for you!
