Holiday Thoughts

My baby has been fighting sleep for the last few days and I'm in motherhood survival mode armed with red wine and leftover Halloween candy. I've been fortunate to have a great sleeper and he's been sleeping through the night (give-or-take a middle of the night feeding) since about week 3. But, every few weeks I'm kept on my toes with a change in behavior. It's definitely a test of patience and I try my hardest to keep my cool given the lack of sleep. Thank goodness for coffee and under eye concealer. Both of these have saved me through these trying days!
Speaking of, I haven't gone to Starbucks in a couple weeks but I have seen that the much anticipated holiday cup has returned! Have you been recently? I swear, the coffee just tastes better in a festive cup! I try to fight all Christmas urges until the day after Thanksgiving but I have to admit, it gets harder every year! I'm so tempted to just go for it- decorate, binge the holiday Hallmark movies, listen to ALL the Christmas music, and let the baking begin! But I'm staying strong, after all, I only have 10 days to go until after Thanksgiving! Which also has me thinking about the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals quickly approaching. I'm working on getting my holiday gift list organized so I can shop strategically this year! Is there anything better than saving money on something you were planning to buy anyway?
