Christmas in Numbers

I saw this on Samantha's blog last week and knew I wanted to borrow her idea!

Here's my Christmas in numbers:
3: the number of stockings we have hanging up on our banister
1: the number of presents I've wrapped so far...I need to get moving!

72: the number of Christmas cards we sent out to friends and family this year

7: the amount of clothing orders that I've purchased during the holiday sales....for myself #oops

2.5: the number of days left of work before 2 glorious weeks off!

4: the number of mysterious packages that have arrived so far for MG that I was told not to look at lol

5: the number of holiday parties I will have attended by the end of this weekend

167: the number of miles to drive between here and PA, where we'll be spending Christmas

3: the number of plugs/extension cords needed in order to get our outdoor Christmas lights on this year (this plug didn't fit into that extension cord, etc etc). But, it's worth it because I love how it looks at night!
39: the approximate number of times I've had to fix the tree topper on our tree from looking drunk and about to fall over; I'm on the lookout for a better one!

4: the number of siblings I've inherited and am thankful for each year:
65: the temperature it's supposed to be in Virginia on Christmas #babyitswarmoutside #sweatyChristmas

57: approximately the number of times I've checked the tracking on my packages to find out when they'll be arriving at my doorstep

12: the number of inches MG's smile is going to be when he opens one of his big Christmas gift this year (he's not expecting this one!)

What's your Christmas in numbers?

I'm linking up with Jess today for another round of Bits of Cheer!

  4. Such a cute post idea! Love the description of your tree topper haha, I feel like they always look like that it's so hard to keep them standing up! I'm the same way with the sale shopping... I always end up buying something for myself!

  5. This weather is so crazy! I'm hoping things will turn around and we will get a surprise cold front for Christmas. Forget white Christmas, I'll take a cold Christmas!!

  8. I'm always so tempted to look at the packages that are arriving for my husband that I know are for me! Christmas is only two weeks away so I think I can wait! And I'm hoping it's not a super warm Christmas! Nothing is worse than being in shorts or flip flops on Christmas!

  9. The checking the tracking on your packages made me laugh because that is definitely me too, haha. We never do custom Christmas cards, but I love how you did yours, rather than one large picture!

  13. Such a cute post! It's always so tempting when packages arrive and you're not supposed to look at them. I'm always like, "But are you sure you don't need help opening it? I'll get the scissors!"-haha Love the Christmas card!

  20. Such a fun post idea...I may need to steal this one, too! The tree topper is hilarious - mine kept doing that so I ended up just leaning it against the top few branches. Still just love cooper's little stocking. :) And the lights on the outside looks so pretty!
