I shared with you guys my state of mind early last month. I figured why not again. Honestly, I didn't have a topic lined up today, just a clever little post title. So, chatting about feelings seemed like an easy route for post content, plus it is Random Wednesday after all.

Heart Broken -Logan admitted that she doesn't believe in our Elf on the Shelf anymore. She said she knew last year, but played along with the "game". I wanted to continue the magical lies, but I didn't have the heart to keep the story going. She is on the fence about Santa Claus, but I think we have her believing one more year. I know this is not what Christmas is all about, but it rips me up inside knowing that Santa will most likely not exist to her this time next year. They grow up too fast. At least she is keeping her lips sealed for Landry and all her friends at school. I may or may not have threatened her if she spilled the beans.
Stressed - Hmmmm, where should I begin? Holiday gift buying, Christmas cards need to be addressed and mailed, Ross's birthday is tomorrow, hosting company Christmas party at our house Saturday, need oil change, car registration and inspection two months expired (Dad, I swear I am doing it this week), no food in the fridge, laundry overflowing, dishwasher broken and Landry's fish bit the dust (total meltdown in our house). I won't go any further. Just SO much going on right now I need a brown paper sack.
Beyonce-ful - In brighter news, I am going to see Beyonce in Dallas on Monday with two of my best gals. We bought our tickets months ago and have been counting down the days. I love this woman, possibly obsessed...her voice, music, choreography, legs and just her in general. I am sure I will be blowing up Instagram all day Monday. Just warning you.
Joyful - All the stress at the end of the day is worth all the joy that this time of year brings. Yes, I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I am sure most of us are, but isn't this the most magical time? At this very moment I am soaking it all in; Christmas movies on every night, Peppermint Twist candle aroma filling my home, twinkling lights sprinkled around the house, the kids being on their best behavior because Santa is making his list, random acts of kindness from strangers, the hustle and bustle at the stores, peppermint chocolate chip milkshakes at Chic-fil-A, spiked apple cider by the fire, burlap bows, Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas on repeat and the list goes on. I just need to remind myself that this is the season of giving, joy, love and celebrating my Savior. All the other "stuff" really is just icing on the cake...thick, homemade, vanilla icing with lots of sprinkles.
