Three Things Thursday

1.  This has been a crazy, crazy week.  I have had something to do every night!  I’m excited about tonight though, P and I are decorating my house and Christmas tree.  Speaking of tree…I told you I was going to make my tree skirt.  And I did it.  I now know why they are $80 on etsy.  It took me a good 6 hours to make it (Thanksgiving was very low key).  I would also say a good hour to remember how to use my sewing machine-but it was like riding a bike.  Once I figured it out, it was a piece of cake.  The pinning had to be the hardest part of all.  Here are the pics.

cutting an insane amount of strips
I did 3 inch strips 
the beginning of the pinning-I pinned and then sewed each strip
a few rows in…

the final product!  I can’t wait to put it under the tree tonight!!

I also found this package tag idea on pinterest this week.  It is cut out paint chips from the hardware store.  Too cute!

right side up it would be a christmas tree 🙂

I will post pics of the final decorations next week.

2.  It is hard to believe that Goofy is only 5 weeks away.  We have a 20 mile run this weekend (and 10 on Sunday) and the PT said to go for it….so here’s to hoping I will be okay.  I appreciate your comments on Miami.  I’m 99% sure I am out.  Wineglass Marathon opened today too.  Why is it so hard for me to say no to these races?  I know I need to stick with my 50 state goal and spend my money towards that.  But I LOVE running with my TNT friends and they will be going again.  :(:(  I would love to do it again…
3.  Let the Christmas chaos begin:  A blogger card exchange, a blogger gift exchange, daily mile secret santa, TNT gift exchange, Pi Phi ornament exchange, a tacky sweater party, and my own housewarming/holiday party.  All in the next 2 weeks.  Oh, and HBBC and possibly some of the other activity focused things floating out there in bloggy land.  Whew.  I am tired just typing this.  It’s a lot but I absolutely LOVE this time of year.
