Okay okay okay

Whoa.  Calm down.  

Yesterday it seemed like I was the only one I knew who was aware of the upcoming Christmas season.

This morning?

Ha.

So not the case.

All of these Halloween-lovers have suddenly switched gears and are all go-go-go on Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff.

I mean, I guess I'm glad I'm not the only one anymore.

But it kind of startled me.

It's hard to explain.

And I'm not just talking about blog land.

Even our downstairs neighbor who had their apartment decked out in sweet Halloween decorations,

Who had a bat on their front door that Olivia would point to and say "Ba!" every time we walked past it,

Now has a pretty Thankgsiving-y wreath up.

Some people are mega on top of things.

And despite my all-Christmas-all-the-time brain,

The Halloween banner is still up on our front door.

Even though it's just magnetic.

And all I have to do is go

"Yoink."

And take it down.

I just haven't gotten to it quite yet.

Although apparently it's time.


Also, speaking of feeling intimidated, I'm going to be a judge for the Copy Cat Challenge going on over at Sew Much Ado.  This morning was the first time I saw the list of my fellow judges.  

Eek.

That is all I have to say.

I think I'll go hide under a blanket now.


Oh.

And Happy November.  :)

Yeah, I know...it's kind of shocking how all of a sudden every one has changed gears. I even kind of prepped myself for it this year, but it's still shocked me a bit. Our jack-o-lantern jars are staying on our mantle for a while though...because I just made them...and Becca LOVES them.

It makes me feel so much anxiety inside when decorations are left up after the actual holiday. I don't know why. It's not like it's that big of deal, but when Christmas decorations are left up well into January, it makes me want to throw up. Same with Easter and especially Valentines decorations. But I don't really decorate anyway, so I don't know why it irks me. But no worries, I'm not judging you. Just the neighbors who still think it's the Fourth of July.

Hey, even I have started buying/making a few Christmas presents, so you know it must be just around the corner...
