Even before I had a baby the holidays were kind of stressful, yet fun and exciting. However, this year my son is a rambunctious 16 month old rather than a little non-moving 4 month old like last Christmas, so the holidays are going to be a bit different.
So in an effort to minimize the hassle and maximize what a relaxing holiday should be, my husband and I are trying to be as efficient as possible and non-last minute.
This weekend we got the tree and took out all decorations as well as finished and yes, I mean really finished all Christmas shopping. We managed to get the majority of it done online and at places like TJ Maxx and Marshalls so we avoided the mall. Plus I used Ebates so I got cash back too! It was a win win. And if you’re wondering about Ebates, it really is as awesome and easy as you think. Use my link to sign up now: https://go.ebat.es/imsk/iGR2y5o8BI
So all I have to do is decorate the tree, have my husband put up the lights outside, wrap the presents and sit back and relax. Right? Oh and try and keep my son from ripping apart the tree. No biggie. My goal is to be sitting with my feet up, drink in hand, with my baby and my husband Christmas Eve. And to not be out running last minute errands in the dark and cold night with all the other lunatics. Wish me luck! How are you dealing with the holidays?
