What's a Girl to Do?

What's a girl to do while her husband is away studying and her best friend is out of town for the month? that's a very interesting question.  I have done LOTS of shopping lately.  It's been fun...and expensive.  I love shopping during the Christmas season, getting good deals and just being out and about with the other holiday shoppers.  I have the tendency to buy a lot of extra stuff during this season; I have a hard time telling myself "no" when it's a REALLY good deal.  This has made me come home and realize that I shoudn't have bought something and then taking it back, which is a good thing.  But then when I take it back, I tend to look around the store some more and just buy other things :)  I have already taken stuff back to Target twice this last week!  Oh how I LOVE Target...Just rambling now...Anyways, this last week I have kept myself very busy.  I have finished all of our Christmas shopping!  I have finished a few projects too!  I made me niece, who LOVES horses, a really cute blaket (I should have taken a picture before I wrapped it)  I also made a few other gifts for Christmas presents too.  I have wrapped all of our gifts and put them under the tree.  But all my Christmas shopping and projects are done, now what am I suppose to do?  I still have 2 more weeks of tests!  Well....I can BLOG!  or maybe I"m just rambling.  I did take a few pictures around the house to post!  I love Christmas!  Here is a little bit of what Christmas looks like at the Wray home.  (No judging on the pictures...we are still having major computer problems and I didn't really want to deal with editing them)

When we got married, we decided that we wanted to hang our stocking from snow globes.  I LOVE our snow globes...can you guess who's is who's?

I made this for an Enrichment project.  I love it :)

Our PITIFUL Christmas tree, but it was free...

I love the traditional colors of Christmas!

I love Yankee Candles..and this one smells sooooo good.

Yay!  I finally changed my towel!  I love all of them!

Fall is offically gone for us here in Cleveland...Forecast calls for snow, snow and more snow...This is just the beginning
Merry Christmas Everyone!


  1. You and I must never go shopping together or else we would buy the whole store! I am exact same kind of shopper :)
    Love your snow globes, what a cute idea! I'm sure you will find plenty of things to keep yourself busy over the next 2 weeks. If nothing else than blo, blog, blog!

  2. Way cute decorations! Your home looks so festive. Love it!

  3. I totally have that shopping problem! :) (though, having to take kids with me to do it, makes it a real downer, so it doesn't happen as much now! lol)
    All your projects and decor look so cute!

  4. Post lots more photos! I love your pictures. Also, wrap up in a blanket, eat popcorn and watch Holiday movies!

  5. Yes, blog your little heart out. I love all of your decorations. So cute and fun. I need to buy more Christmas decorations, unfortunately, the longer I stay at a store the less likely I am to buy it. I talk myself out of a ton of stuff - maybe you should take me shopping? We could balance each other out! I know you will probably be tired of the snow by spring, but I'm still jealous.

  6. Hahaha that seriously made me laugh out loud :) I'm glad you have found something to do without me ;) all I can say is ASHTON!!! And have fun shopping and returning

  7. Yes but snow is amazing :) I have to admit... I don't miss the ice that enveloped Oklahoma. Snow is much prettier [not to mention easier to drive in!] :)
