Oh the weather outside is... actually not all that frightful

The season, she's upon us, and I am feeling it, kids! I woke up with Bing on the brain and a twitchy urge to spend. What I'm not sure since we're down to one income and I still need a g-d breast pump but I may have to eek out some quality time at Bryant Park's holiday market this week. Every year Bryant Park (love me some Project Runway) transforms into a European-style market with artisans and miniature boutiques. You can grab a hot chocolate from 'Witchcraft (love me some Top Chef) and browse to your heart's content. It's crazy adorable, and made even more so by the presence of a genuine ice skating rink. (That's it next to the gigantic tree.) The best part? IT'S FREE. I've been dying to partake but my delicate condition (and general tendency to hurt myself) prevents such antics.

We set up our little aluminum Christmas tree this weekend (I'm desperate for a real one but as Matt put it, "I think we'll have enough to take care of this year...") and hung our stockings with care. (In other words, we nailed them to the wall.) This year Possum's stocking is one of his baby socks but it's red and white so I figure it counts.

Are you guys feeling it? The season? The reason for the season? Seasonal Affective Disorder? Bring on the 'nog!

We have an Xmas wreath up on the front door. That's about the extent of our decorating so far. I also realized that we now have to buy 2 more stockings....

I love this season. I sent Doyce home to Denver earlier this week with his suitcase half full of Christmas decorations to put up when I get out to his house. I'm so tempted to do more decorating around the apartment, but I'm going to be good and save myself for Denver.

But with the snow blowing outside -- boo yah, it's being to feel a lot like Christmas. Yay!

I am feeling more in the mood for Christmas this year than I have in a few years. The decorations are up, I even have a few presents bought, and most are at the very least decided on.

Oohh ice skating. I haven't been in years. BH doesn't do so well on the ice skates. (That ability he has to turn his feet backwards? Doesn't translate well when called on to do things like ice skate.)So I have lacked company to go with.

The tiny stocking sounds really cute!!

No, I'm not feeling it so much, though it is snowing a nice wet fluffy snow today so maybe that will start to get me in the mood.

I keep expecting to hear NEWS when I read your blog though... :)
