As of today, I have received the following gifts from my Secret Santa at work:
On the first day of Christmas...a day planner
On the second day of Christmas...an apple
On the third day of Christmas...a coffee cup
On the fourth day of Christmas...a pumpkin spice candle
On the fifth day of Christmas...a flashlight
(Remember, all our gifts have to be $1 or less.)
It is really fun to get a little something every day, a little surprise to brighten a cold, wet day (maybe it's not cold and wet for you, but it is for me).
So I heard the best quote from my husband last night. Made me kinda tear up:
"I love it when the house smells like your snickerdoodle coffee."
Be still, my beating heart.
I was thinking of said quote this morning when I made my coffee (not the snickerdoodle kind -- it's only for Mondays, and yes, my coffee drinking has a schedule) and started walking over to the couch for my morning Bible study. For some horrible reason, the coffee cup (the large coffee cup my BFF brought me back from Disney World) slipped from my fingers.
It was like watching it in slow motion -- the coffee cup falling, my face cringing in pre-pain from the broken glass I knew was going to come, and my dog's eyes widening, knowing that disaster was about to befall her (pun so intended).
The glass fell...and bounced.
God bless my husband for making sure we had laminate flooring put down two years ago.
Seriously, how does a coffee mug BOUNCE??? Granted, the spill from my coffee spread all over my living room floor (that was JUST cleaned last night), but seven towels will fix that problem. And the coffee mug, after it's initial bounce, rolled under the coffee table (oh, the irony) and rested -- unbroken.
After that bout of thankfulness, I need some help: I have a Christmas playlist on grooveshark, but...I need additional songs. What are your favorite Christmas songs that I can add?
(And, yes, that one is on my list.)
