high five for friday about christmas even though it’s september.

This week has been soo good . . . the fall boots and my favorite leather jacket came out of the closet, and I got parts of the house organized and even decorated . . . and the best part we officially move out of our apartment today and tomorrow.

Let’s start the pictures from this week off right with the most adorable. This is the conversation we had prior to this picture :  Bex: let’s take a picture and send it to mama at work Amauri: here Me’sean put your arm like me Me’sean: that’s cheesy Amauri A: cheesy pictures make good Christmas presents. M: did aunti beki tell you that A: of course.

those exact words didn’t come out of my mouth, but she must learn off of what she sees. and this is going to be the best Christmas present in the history of Christmas presents.

speaking of Christmas I may or may not have already started making the list of who we’ll need to buy for. may or may not . . . may . . . I might have . . . I did.

One funny thing that happened this week that requires a little back story . . . a year ago when we first moved into this apartment we were recently married and I was changing my name which caused so many problems with our mail. On our lease the apartment is listed as A, but UPS would only deliver it with ‘apt A’ listed. If it just said A then it was returned as no such address. If it comes with my maiden name it is returned saying this person doesn’t live there. Even though we still receive mail – personal and ads – for the 2 people who lived there prior to us. No one could tell me what the problem was and my packages were being sent back, but I eventually caught on and changed my name everywhere and started listing it is ‘apt a’ everywhere and we haven’t had a problem since last Novemberish. So a week ago I went ahead and started the process of changing our address and having our mail forwarded. Around the same time I ordered a new dress for the influence conference next week. I didn’t think anything of having it sent to the apartment because I knew we would still be there when it was delivered and old navy comes fed ex. Nope, it was returned because ‘this person no longer lives at this address’. So I called fedex to see if it was being forwarded gave them the tracking number and all . . . and they have no record of it . . . Hopefully this all gets taken care of later today because of course the dress I want is not available in stores and I really don’t want to have to deal with finding a new dress and then returning that one when it finally arrives. But I’m trying to be non chalant about it as the picture above.

Have you checked out yesterdays post about our new floors? Even as many times as I’ve done laminate flooring I can’t get over how good these look!

    It’s never too early to start making lists for Christmas in my opinion! It makes the shopping experience that much better! 🙂

    We just moved, but our lease on our apartment is until the end of October so I’ve haven’t changed our address on stuff yet. I’m so glad I have the extra time because the same thing with getting stuff sent back happened the last time we moved. It was obnoxious.
