Christmas Challenge

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs...Rockstar Diaries and I just fell in love with the idea. I know it's a tad late, but there is still plenty of time to cross all of these off your list before the 25th! ( I rhymed)
25 christmas challenges...

1. tell someone you love them
2. make a tree decoration that will remind you of Christ
3. in your prayers today, give thanks for every blessing without asking for anything
4. try to be as kind as possible to others today
5. try not to quarrel with family members today
6. do a good deed anonymously
7. make goals for yourself-- seal a copy in an envelope to be opened in a year
8. visit someone sick or lonely or sad
9. do volunteer work for some worthy cause
10. do something fun for a child or younger sibling
11. try to forgive someone who has wronged you, be reconciled
12. make a "give list" instead of a list of gifts you'd like
13. improve yourself in some way to please Jesus
14. quietly reflect and choose uplifting activities vs shopping
15. phone or send a card to an old friend or family member
16. listen to Handel's Messiah
17. make a christmas treat for someone else

23. be the first to say hello to people all day

I am obsessed yet again. Why does this always happen to me? I get something in my head that I just have to have and it's complete mayhem in my mind until I am living harmoniously together with said desired item. It must be one of those "issues" I'm told I have... whatever those are. I must say though, my clothing expenditures have moderately decreased over the last month being that I can only buy things that I know will cover my growing bump. So in that case I think it should be considered completely acceptable for me to spend a little more on one thing that I really want since all the other little nonsense purchases have gone by the wayside. So in that case, may I introduce you to the Tory Burch Reva flat in GOLD. Such beauties these are. I'm not in any rush though...maybe in a few months.

$195 Neiman Marcus

However, I will say that there are a few pairs of ballet flats out for a much better price that are also completely adore.

The City Flat $39.50
