Elf on the Shelf: Spouse Edition (Week 2)

imageChristmas count down is at 11 days!!

December is flying by!

This weekend was SO packed between braving the malls, a brunch date with my husband, Christmas festivities with family, family pictures, spending time friends, and so on!

I think the ‘busyness’ around Christmas is partially why I’ve been enjoying this whole elf on the shelf thing ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the reminder to take time to do something thoughtful for my husband or have a fun date with my husband. It makes the holidays extra special ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for a peak at what my Elf on the Shelf has been up to this week.

Its been fun subtly leaving treats or notes around to see when my husband will notice … he is actually super observant! So I have to be sneaky ๐Ÿ™‚


Happy Monday!! Enjoy your week ๐Ÿ™‚

Do the weekends ever fly by in December or what?!

I can’t believe we are already on our second week of December! Baking has commenced, decorations are basically up and Christmas music is playing 24/7!

Last week I introduced my version of Elf on the Shelf… Spouse Edition!! And promised to share a bit of what my elf has been up to over the past week each Monday. So here is the first update!

Once again, here was the introduction to my Elf, and the surprises to come this next month!


I love ‘pun’ ideas for leaving little treats and notes around for my husband, there are SO many idea’s out there ๐Ÿ™‚ All I’ve had to is add a Christmas twist! Or include some sort of treat that my husband likes!


I’ve had to be sneaky and try to set things up either when I get home from work before my husband or when he’s not looking!!!

Now, Mondays have usually been ‘Simple Meal Mondays’ but because of the Christmas season, Mondays are taking a Holiday twist.

You’ve probably heard about Elf on the Shelf… well here is my version!

Elf on the shelf: Spouse Edition.

Why should kids have all the fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Meet my elf!


This elf will be making its first appearance December 1, but here is a sneak peak ๐Ÿ™‚

I found this elfย  ‘ornament’ at a craft store and the best part is that you can insert a picture of your face! This ornament makes the perfect elf for my elf on the shelf, and its bound to get a few laughs from my husband!!


I’ve prepped some date night ideas and other surprises for my husband as a Christmas count down throughout December and each Monday I’ll share a post with an update on what my elf on the shelf has been up to!!

Here’s a preview of my Elf on the Shelf: Spouse Edition introduction letter!!
