holidazed & confused.

December 11, 2013

for those that are fans of the ever-so-profound movie, what about bob?, then you’ll remember that bob wiley (played by the great bill murray) says: “there are 2 kinds of people in this world. those that like neil diamond and those that don’t.”

this time of year i have this phrase on repeat running through my head…but it goes more like this: “there are 2 kinds of people in this world. those that buy christmas presents early. and those that wait until the very last minute and then run around frantically overbuying & overcompensating in their holiday-induced state of delirium.”

{thanks to retropopcult for this pic!}

those in the first group….you know who you are. (dang overachievers.) me? i’m in the latter group…and although EVERY year, i proclaim for all the world to hear that the NEXT year, i’m going to be prepared. i’m going to buy presents early. i’m NOT going to be running around in a state of stress and holiday anxiety at the last minute. but yet, EVERY year i am holidazed. and maybe that’s ok. maybe that’s just the way i roll. so i’ve decided this year…i’m going to embrace the fact that i’m a last-minute gift buyer. it’s ok. because “i’m good enough. i’m smart enough. and doggone it, people like me.” (another SNL fave…i can’t help it. old habits die hard.)

if you’re procrastinating like me and in need of  a little holiday inspiration & a little down home feel goodness…y’all check out our holiday and homegrown pinterest boards. there’s some realllllllly awesome, beautiful, and inspiring images (and DIY projects) that we know you’ll love!

{a pinned fave...}

grab some cocoa (orrrrr eggnog) and get to pinning! and when you get hooked on pinterest, y’all and amie can form a support group together. pinners anonymous. and that’s ok. because doggone it, people like you.
