90 Miles an Hour


Does anyone else feel like they've been going 90 miles an hour lately? Because this is the exact way I have been feeling. 
Maybe it's because it's the holidays
Maybe it's because friends & family are in town
Maybe it's because I didn't start my Christmas shopping as early this year
Maybe it's because it's been balls freezing cold out & I just want to stay inside
Maybe it's because I got a got a slight promotion at work & now put in more hours
Maybe it's because my list of "Things to Do" just keeps getting longer & longer

I love Christmas but man o' man. This year feels like it's on overdrive and I'm barely hanging on for dear life. I need to wrap presents, finish buying presents, hopefully get some peanut butter fudge made and watch a few more Christmas movies. 

I did see one thing the other day that made me smile and stop....

That's right. It's Elvis wine.

I'm also going 90 mph. I feel like the older you get, the more Christmas comes with responsibility. But in the end it's all worth it! Hope you get a second to "wine down" with Elvis.

I have a lot of present wrapping and baking left to do. That Elvis wine looks cool.

I am right there with you! This year seems to be 10x busier than last. I feel like I'm running around more, have more parties and my To-do list a always a mile long. Good luck with getting through it. And the 24/25 are just around the corner and those are always great days.

Love the wine. Maybe a glass or two of that, a good nights sleep, and a list of things to do will help slow things down. Well, wine may not help get things taken care of, but you will have fun = )

Ashley said...

We love Christmas, but it definitely is a time of constant thinking, doing, planning! Work and all of that other "junk" (ok, not junk - i totally appreciate my job, lol) kind of gets in the way.

Try to slow down and have some "Jennifer" time! Maybe crack open a bottle of Elvis wine! lol ;)

Steph said...

I'm doing better this year than most. I still have a few more things that I need to buy. Everything I have bought is wrapped. Oh and I still need to make some cheese balls. I've never made one before so that's making me a little nervous.

Summer said...

OMG where did you find the Elvis Wine my MIL would be in Loooove with that and it soooo needs to be wrapped as a gag gift under the tree.....

I also feel like I am running 90 mph I think it is the hustle and bustle of the holidays! Good luck on your candy making! My bestie and I are having a bake off today she is doing most of it I am told I have to sit LOL yeah right I am too stubborn for that....

That's how I felt the last couple years and thankfully it's slowed down for me, as I know it will for you too! Congrats on the promotion!!! Did you get any of that Elvis wine? I wonder if it's any good?

Bird Shit and Baby Caca said...

OMG!!! I need that Elvis wine!!!

samnhal said...

haha, I watched my first episode of gene simmons family jewels and it was about him getting his own wine. I bet rockers drink a lot of wine. I feel like life has been a bit crazy, this weekend is going to go nuts. My friend is getting married sat and then family comes in on monday so it's all starting now, luckily I'm done with the shopping.

For real! Things just seem to be crazy lately. Congrats on the promotion.

Cole said...

I'm with you! I'm barely holding on as I speed through the holiday season.

I can't wait until it's over (well, not really...) and I can relax a little.

Yes, I completely agree that everything is on hyperspeed this year. I've committed to less things this year but feel more rushed than in past years. That wine is neat!

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

Make it all slow down as I want to soak up all this time!!
