Are You Advent Ready? j/k :)

I must be joking, right? Seriously. I’m not even back-to-school ready and that happened like three months ago. The kid who had a birthday in September just got his birthday party LAST WEEK. In November.

Clearly, I am killing it. Be jealous.

But, you know, Advent starts in two weeks and people are going to start busting out the Elf on the Shelf (the bane of my existence), screaming movie lines from “Elf” like they wrote the movie and hitting up Pinterest pretending to be holiday crafty.

In between the tinsel and the gift shopping, I’m urging you to:

  1. Breathe.
  2. Grab a Dos Equis, or a sweet tea martini. Your choice.
  3. Order the Advent bundle from Blessed is She and really kick start the Advent season a blessed way. {You can order each of those products individually – journal, Jesse tree calendar and print, too.}

I just ordered mine and am now stalking the mailbox. Can’t wait to share how we Advent around here and give y’all a little Instagram story tour of the decorated house. Sound fun? Guess I need to actually fold the laundry in the living room.

Yes, this post has affiliate links, but you already know how much I adore BIS.

    What is a sweet tea martini? Sounds right up my alley. Might drink one while meditating on my Advent Jesse Tree cards that I just bought from BIS.

      Heaven in a glass. Two parts lemonade, one part sweet tea vodka (we prefer Deep Eddy). Serve with s lemon slice. Cheers!
