Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

Christmas Activity Advent Calendar @ohbotherblog I'm trying really hard to make Christmas magical this year, so I've decided we're going to have a magical freaking December.

I found this Threshold Stocking Advent Calendar Garland on clearance at Target the day after Christmas last year and held on to it for a whole year to hatch this plan.

Every day, the kids will remove a slip of paper from the numbered stocking to reveal what fun Christmasy thing we're doing that night.

For the First of December, we went Christmas decoration shopping (hey, sometimes you have to throw some practicality into the mix).

I'll be honest, a lot of our "activities" consisted of me cross-referencing the Freeform 25 Days of Christmas schedule for holiday movies that are playing each night.

Other activities will include our Downtown Tree Lighting Ceremony, visits to various Christmas lights displays, making gingerbread houses, baking cookies, and probably just a good old fashioned piling in the car to look at Christmas lights.

Magical Freaking December, here we come.
