Antique table turned chessboard

I am a planner. 

I like to think things through and do research early if I can. 

Therefore, I start sorting out Christmas gifts in the summer. Yes. I am THAT person. 

If it makes you feel any better, I typically lose motivation and then have to rush before Christmas to get things done. So it's not like I am ready for Christmas months in advance or anything. 

This year, Jake and I decided to give each other a very strict budget for our gifts to each other. Jake was all for not buying gifts at all but I love Christmas way too much for that. As a result we concluded that $50 would suffice. And since this decision was made back in July, we had plenty of time to think about what would make the perfect gift for each other.

A dream come true... and I still don't even know if it actually works!

For a few years now, I have been obsessed with Heartland ranges.

Have you ever heard of Heartland?

They. Are. Gorgeous.


They are also disturbingly expensive.

Now that the year is over, how did we do?

Spoiler alert!

I will probably end up giving certain things away in this post about projects that have gone on this year but about which I have not yet written. 

So... you know... you have been warned!!

Last January, Jake and I created a list of things we wanted to accomplish throughout the year. Big things, little things, all kinds of things

A shameful year-end review.


How many times have I said that I'm the worst on this blog?

5?

10?

A million?

Well here is one more...

I. Am. The. Worst.
