Getting gifts isn't my love language, but I really enjoy giving gifts to others to help them feel loved! And Christmas is the perfect time to do that :-)
Every year I look forward to Christmas for many reasons (it's a magical time of year) I especially look forward to being able to watch my loved ones open the gifts that I picked out for them. I love seeing the excitement, and joy! If I could I would give people gifts everyday so I could see that.
Well, maybe not everyday...
My husband isn't a huge fan of shopping, so it's a good thing I've learned to drive a stick, so that this year I don't need to torture him by making him take me everywhere ;-)
One thing that has made Christmas shopping so nice and less stressful is this website my awesome brother in law made. It's called Wishlist Factory. It's an advanced wishlist system that allows families, friends, and other groups of people to create private wishlists for any event or holiday! Sweet huh?
It's completely free, and very user-friendly. You should totally check it out!
It has made shopping so.much.easier.
If you're going to spend money, it helps to know what people want :-P
So, I'm motivated to finish my shopping!
My goal is to get it all done by tomorrow, and have everything wrapped by this weekend!
Well, I guess I should say Wednesday this week :-P
Remember, your post doesn't have to be long, it can be as simple as linking up a picture or a quote. I don't want anyone feeling overwhelmed by this :-)
Here are the guidelines:
1) Make sure you link directly to the page your Small Treasure Tuesdays post is on, not your main blog page.
If you don't have a blog, you can still participate and leave your treasure in a comment.
2) Please link back here so other people can join in on the fun! A good way to do that is by grabbing my button :-)
3) Visit as many people as you want/can. All I ask is that you please visit the person above you in the list, and leave a comment. Everyone loves to know what you think of their treasures!
My husband is always one of my treasures.
and today I'm really grateful for his patience, love and understanding.
He's the best!
The only car we have is a stick, and I never learned to drive a stick growing up. So, Christmas shopping can be a bit tricky, especially since my husband isn't exactly a fan of shopping.
So, my awesome husband has been teaching me to drive a stick!
And while I am trying to be a good student, and I'm catching on pretty quickly, I think it still requires a lot of patience on his part. Especially when I complain worry that it's harder than an automatic and I'll never get the hang of it.
He's been a great teacher though, and he's been helping me to feel very comfortable with it.
and the amazing thing is- I'm really starting to get it, and I'm finding it fun!
