30 minutes of work this morning...

and this is all I have to show for it!

Even better yet, it's not a bad thing!  As most of you probably realize, this is a pile of tails that I cut off after weaving in ends.  They are the ends to the pink ripple lapghan that I finished about a month ago and have been procrastinating on truly finishing.  All of the other Christmas gifts I wanted to start just seemed like more fun at the time, and they were!
But now, as I was getting ready for work this morning and thinking about all the things I need to do, pick up and clean before our Christmas party on Saturday I realized that the unfinished blanket was STILL just sitting there.  Just think of the things/presents I would not have to put away (aka hid in the bedroom) if they were wrapped for Christmas and sitting nicely under my Christmas tree!  That was all the motivation it took for me to work on this for 30 min this morning vs. more crocheting on another gift!  In 30 min of listening to the Today Show, I got about 2/3 of one side done!  If I continue on this path each morning the rest of this week, I'll be wrapping this baby by Friday night after work, Saturday morning at the latest!  Talk about good motivation :-)

It's Day 2 of Secret Santa and I have yet to receive my mysterious Day 2 gift, but I gotta say I'm doing amazing well at keeping my recipient on her toes!  I asked her last night when she got yesterday and after telling me about the great gift card someone must have known she would love, she expressed how it couldn't be me "because the post it note wasn't on a pink post it" HAHA 
Here's today's gift
I got in early and left them for her before she got in at 9.....by 9:15 she was eating them for breakfast and said "my Secret Santa is either someone who knows me really well, or knows someone who knows me really well"

The season of giving is more fun than ever before, I love this game!!!!!
