We Pretended It Was Christmas

12.18.2013
Jon and I closed on our new property for our business yesterday! I still just can't believe it! I felt like such a big kid signing my name, handing over a check and knowing the keys are ours. Like adulthood had just slapped me in the face and said, "It's official. You're a big kid now!"

And then we went home...

It must have been the excitement of the signing. We hadn't come off our high yet. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. 
We opened them. All of them. And then I realized we may act like adults, but we are both children at heart.

There is something awesome about being an adult and acting like a child. Deciding when we can open our Christmas presents is the best! No parents to tell us no. No kids to say, "What are you doing mommy and daddy? Why can't we open ours then?" No rules. It's our way or the highway (the way I've always thought it should be).

It's liberating I tell ya!

Well I guess you are probably wondering what I got. Without further a-due... the new edition. 
Isn't she beautiful? Yes, "she". Something as gorgeous as herself deserves a name and it's Lola. Welcome to the family Lola. Your daddy did good. Real good.

Now here's a gift for you. How about you help yourself to a perfect little stocking stuffer for yourself or your loved one? Some gorgeous bloggers and myself got together to bring you some holiday cheer with our Ho-Ho-Happy Giveaway! Scroll down and enter to win a $50 giftcard to Starbucks! Go ahead - you deserve it!
