7 Quick Takes Friday (12): The No Picture Edition

We moved! I have spent all week packing up boxes only to unload them again. We are renting a house for the first time and I am loving it. The house is almost 2x the size of our cramped apartment, so as of now we don't have enough furniture to fill the place. We have been on the hunt for some serious deals.
Unfortunately I have been unable to find the cord that hooks my camera up to the computer. I have been really wanting to participate in Beth Anne's Best's Advent Photo Contest, but my lack of cord has been preventing me.
I am inadequately prepared for Christmas this year! Major panic has set in. I have officially only purchased 1 present and we don't even have a Christmas tree yet. This has been especially difficult for me because I love Christmas Time.
My mom came to my rescue and brought over a bunch of left over decorations she had. We at least have some Christmas decorations around the house between all the boxes. The Advent Wreath has been up for the entire season though :)
Check out my post from this week about finding joy in life, instead of happiness. I also talk about where joy comes from- it is not the places we would always except!
I have personally spoken to good ol' St. Nick and he has arranged to come early this year. He is coming this Thursday! He told me that my daughter should be expecting a letter in the mail soon explaining why he will be making a special trip for us!
I have to get back to my boxes now. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Head back over to Conversion Diary for more quick takes!


  1. Bless you, Mama Leigh...moving at Christmas Time! : ) Looks like you are on top of things...Thank Heavens for moms...They are great, aren't they? Enjoy Christmas in your new home!

  2. Congrats on the move! And Merry Early Christmas :)

  3. Well, I feel like the bad Catholic. I have Christmas decorations but still no Advent wreath. Such a heathen. ;)

  4. I hope you settle into your new home well! SO exciting!

  5. I'm panicking about Christmas too! We'll get it all done though :) Good luck with the rest of the unpacking!

  6. Wow! Congrats on the move!! You have a lot on your plate! Deep breaths! Everything that NEEDS to get done will get done!! Try to let everything else go!
