23 days. 

23 days ago, the start of Thanksgiving break, seemed like plenty of time to order my online gifts. So I worked on other things like getting out our holiday cards and house decorations.

Last weekend still felt like weeks to go, so I put off the shopping - again.

Guess what I did this Saturday? Finally sat down to order my holiday gifts, as I was banking on Amazon Prime to get my shipments here by Tuesday....WATCH VIDEO

Ever go shopping for someone else and come home empty handed for them - but with something special for you? 

Happens to me all the time.

Can't find a thing for my BFF or mom, but I mysteriously find those perfect boots or jeans that I've been looking for for-evah. 

I especially find this phenomenon happening during the holidays. ;) Whether I'm shopping online or in the store, there always seems to be something just right for my home or closet....WATCH VIDEO

2014.12.02HolidayShopping

I don't know about you but I have a really hard time holiday shopping before the holidays. I find that interests or styles change, so I can't really buy stuff months in advance.

Take my son for example.

He was obsessed with the Rubik's Cube (yes, the 1980's phenomena), and if I'd bought some variation of it three months ago as a Christmas present, he wouldn't even want it now. Apparently that was so October, and he's since moved on to a chess fascination. (Clearly he gets his brains from his dad). ;)....WATCH VIDEO

Are you one of those people who don't know what they'd like for a gift? 

Not me! I could think of a hundred things that would make me giddy. ;)

I could always use a new purse, new boots, the latest jeans, cool jewelry, new crockery, awesome pj's, latest romance trilogy, refreshed makeup and trust me...the list goes on. 

There's certainly no shortage of "wants" in my life....WATCH VIDEO

Remember what it was like to move into a larger space? You know, like from a dorm room into an apartment? Or from an apartment to a home?

You had all this extra room and storage and your first thought was..."what am I going to do with all this space?"

And before you knew it, you had more stuff than you knew what to do with and wondering, "where did all this come from?!" 

It's only natural. You want furniture and decor to fill your rooms....WATCH VIDEO

2014.11.11ExtraStorage

Do you remember that feeling when you organized your closet? Your pantry? Your underwear drawer? Or whatever the last space was that you took action on?

It felt gooo-ooood.

And you were all like: "I'm never gonna let that space get messy again." Then you took one last look at that breathtaking area before strutting your amazing don't-mess-with-me self out of there.

You were confident. Poised. Brilliant....WATCH VIDEO
