I just got back from the city, I was a little nervous about driving there since I never really have before. When we lived closer to it we usually took public transportation when going to the flower show, museums, or shopping. But now that we're about an hour away it only makes sense to drive there.
My stepdaughter had her music audition today for one of the colleges she applied to and not knowing what the traffic would be like or where I would be parking, we left pretty early to give ourselves extra time. However, as we got closer and every light decided to turn red on us I realized that I better just drop her off at the building she needed to be at and search for parking on my own. So I drove around for about 15 minutes and realized I didn't have any cash on me to park in a parking garage, but luckily I found a neighborhood apartment complex with a suitable parking lot and just hoped that I wouldn't get a ticket! 20 minutes later, after warming up with her musical pieces, she sang for the music administration and we were already on our way home! PS... she said it went really well, fingers crossed!
It's funny how you build up the excitement, the nerves, and the butterflies in your stomach for weeks and moments before your big day (whatever it may be) and you do what you have to do and then it's done! But now the waiting begins all over again and this is her top choice, so send your good vibes and think good thoughts for us because now the nerves and the butterflies will start to grow again for the news of the acceptance letter!
Before I say goodbye and wish you a good weekend here are some photos of our Christmas tree...we always make sure all of the kids are home to pick out a tree and decorate, it's one of my favorite family traditions. So they better come back even when they're in college, no matter what!
We made these ornaments last year using scrapbook paper!
Here we are putting up our photo ornaments from Ocean Side Bride...check out her Etsy shop!
I'm hoping to collect more owl ornaments and decorate a mini tree with all of them!
I love having the tree in front of the window, it reminds me of the old fashion holiday movies!
What are some of your holiday traditions? Happy Weekend!
