The urge to want to be like everyone else is strong this time of year for me. I wish we had more Christmas decorations in our house, and I wish I could just run out and buy a bunch of ingredients and spend the next two days baking every cookie and yummy bread under the sun. Oh, Christmas why must you torment me so?
We are now in the third week of Advent, and maybe it’s because I’m pregnant (Yes!!!), but I have become more obsessed with having the house look nice and feel cozy. How do I get us ready for Christmas without breaking the bank? Simple. Don’t buy anything. 🙂
Ben and I have been doing some crafts and I made a small nativity set out of pipe cleaners. They aren’t perfect, but they help to quench the Christmas bug without breaking the bank, especially because we already owned the craft supplies that we needed.
