Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Holiday Linky!

You guys are rockin’ with the holiday links!
Don’t miss last Friday’s linky for a winter wonderland of great ideas!

Ok, is this true? 13 days until Christmas? {Sigh}.

I have not bought a single gift yet this year. {Bangs head against the wall} CRINGE! I am not kidding!

Do you think I am in denial? You do, don’t you?

And did I say I have three weeks until I MOVE? JUST THREE? Wait. Don’t say it out loud.

FALAALAALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA.

{FAINTS}

Time to get off the computer so I can do something inspiring like pack a box of Tupperware lids and let you guys put up your inspiring links to holiday goodness….

You can find some links here…to get you started.

Remember the Mr. Linky rules. Link to holiday posts only. No home page links. No links to tattoo sites.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    How I feel for you! We moved over the summer and it is so difficult to get it all together, especially when you are trying to live your life. I do hope that you are able to step back and enjoy a little Christmas.
    Best wishes and many blessings,
    Jennifer

    I have you in my thoughts and prayers, Melissa. Moving is stressful at anytime, but during Christmas, it can be extra stressful.

    I love the soup tureen photo!

    Hi Melissaa
    I am so sorry!
    My first link refused to work, so I tried again and got the one that is showing in number 7. I don’t know what happened in the first one. I copied and pasted it, like before, but it came up this page cannot be displayed or doesn’t exist or something. I don’t know how to take it off. Then, when I tried to fix it…I got what is on #7!

    Oh girl! I so wish I could come pack some boxes for you. Or at least do your shopping for you. But instead, I’ll pray.

    I’ve been yammering on about Christmas projects all week so I linked up a couple of them. Hope that’s OK.

    Oh, I feel so bad. Boxing up Tupperware instead of unboxing sparkle! Still, the adventure of a new home, that is so exciting. And I’m sure it will be grand!

    But, wait, no linking to tattoo sites? Rats.

    I’m loving how you are able to keep your sense of humor even during this stressfull time. Sometime I work best under pressure and it sounds like you might too. You go girl! Once you get going it will all come together.
    A new house, how exciting!!!!!

    Hi Melissa. This season is going entirely too quickly for me, too! The season is shorter than it’s been the past few years with only 4 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas rather than 5. What a difference a week makes, especially when you don’t have it!

    I’m so loving your Friday Holiday Linky and hope you’ll consider hosting more parties like these after Christmas. Hope your packing continues to go smoothly, and, given an impending move, maybe your Christmas this year will be among the most special and memorable for you and your family.

    Moving during this season doesn’t sound like much fun at all. If only I wasn’t across the country. Then I could come help you…and listen to you spout decorating wisdom. :)

    Melissa!

    Kimba and I would be great packers. I wish we could both come over and fill boxes for you!.. of course, then we’d probably all get talking and distracted and get little done, except for eating chocolate and sipping diet drinks and laughing away the stress of moving;) Sounds fun!

    If it makes you feel any better, I just did my first shopping spree last night. We’re all a little behind here too.

    I posted to may Christmas tree post… shopping spree prevented the other one. This one introduces you to the saddest looking tree on earth… I OWN it. AND, it has a few stories… terrifying post I tell you!

    Love you! Sending lots of Christmas cheer and prayers your way,
    Pretty Organizer,
    PS- My settings must be a little screwy but I can’t see the links past #28. They go off the screen and under your ad section. FYI in case it isn’t my computer and others are struggling.

    I can never get enough of blog parties. Today I’m taking people on a tour of the “Home Alone” house in Chicago, one of my favorite Christmas movies for the sets! :-)

    Hey, I tried your garland idea with my daughter yesterday and she loved it! She wants to make them for all over the house now. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Melissa,
    Don’t feel bad about the procrastination on gift buying…I am in the same boat…lol! I can’t buy gifts ahead of time because I am so impatient I wind up spoiling the surprise and giving them early! You think I’m joking? I bought my husband a Bible for Christmas and gave it to him in NOVEMBER…lol!

    Have fun packing and put on some Christmas tunes!

    Christmas Blessings!

    You better get crackin’ lady :-) I can’t imagine how overwhelmed you are with moving and all…I haven’t finished my Christmas crafting decor, shopping, or wrapping or even started making my Christmas cards but I couldn’t imagine doing it while trying to pack. I’ll be thinking about you! Hope you don’t stress too much and enjoy your holiday!

    Well, I am in the same boat and I don’t have the excuse of moving!! You have a perfectly good reason for not being ready yet! I pray that you still get to enjoy Christmas with all your packing.

    Hi Melissa,

    My post is titled “Bailey The Unknown Reindeer” with music from Harry Connick Jr. . This video is for anyone who loves the snow and dogs.

    And my devotional is from “Simple Abundance” author Sarah Ban Breathnach titled “Tidings of Comfort and Joy” Just in case anyone hasn’t noticed, that women are the ones who “do” Christmas, performing miracles on demand!

    Have a merry fa la la today!

    Am hoping your blogging friends will be doing lots to inspire us for the coming holidays. Am with you on a count down to moving day and to top it all off now looking for a job at the same time. Just little distractions from the goal of creating a cozy nest to celebreate.

    Good luck with your move, plan, organise and cross fingers that it all comes together so you can have fun decorating at the other end.

    I know how you feel. I moved just before Thanksgiving and dare I say it??? Hosted Thanksgiving for 30 people and 7 little (kids) people. Oh yeah and the 2 dogs! Needless to say I didn’t let anyone in my office/U-Store It U-Keep the key room.

    I have since unpacked some getting ready to host Christmas for the same bunch of crazies. I still won’t let them in the office, but atleast I can get to my computer now!!!

    Merry Christmas!
