Deck the halls

Deck the halls

The other day I received a Big Lots ad.  I normally trash them straight away but the subject caught my eye.  Christmas stuff was on sale.  I’m looking for a new tree so I decided to check out the ad.  While I didn’t see any trees I felt would work, I did see a pair of 4.5 foot lighted trees in urns for $35.00.  Umm sold!  I called the Big Lots near my office but they were out so I…

Here are a few pics of our holiday decorations so far. Our Tree The Mantel with my Nutcrackers I am now collecting Nutcrackers. I need more! Wreaths for the windows I think I really need to do all 4 windows. Mom said she would pick up 2 additional wreaths if I wanted. I have a few printables sitting around plus a few nutcrackers that I printed on old book pages. I saw the idea on Etsy and feel in love…

Holiday Humbug?

Holiday Humbug?

I feel like Thanksgiving was super early this year and I’m having problems getting into the Christmas spirit. Last Friday Mom and I braved the crowds, at lunch, to do a little Black Friday shopping. We found a few items and I bought a few more gifts for Matt. When we finally got home, I pulled in to the driveway and what did I see, Christmas lights on the house! My awesome husband had put them up without me even…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Matt and I had a nice thanksgiving day. We woke up, finished straightening up the house and waited to begin lunch. Matt put the turkey in the fryer a little after noon and my parents arrived around 1:30. I started the rolls when they arrived and then began cooking around 2:00. Everything went fairly well and by 4 we were almost ready to eat. The stupid corn casserole took a lot longer to cook than the recipe said but it…

Biting off more than I can chew?

Biting off more than I can chew?

This year Matt’s parents will be in England for Thanksgiving and his brother will be working in Atlanta.  My parents are now about 15 minutes away so they will be joining us for Thanksgiving.  This will be the first time in about 3 years I think. Since Matt and I have been together, I have been determined for us to find our own Thanksgiving traditions, including foods.  The past few years we done this and that with the hopes of…

Hello Halloween!

Hello Halloween!

I normally don’t do much for Halloween but the craft bug bit me, again, and I needed something to do. Since Halloween is right around the corner I thought I would decorate some. I found some great printables, and you might remember the crazy Target spree I went on a few weeks ago. I also decided I wanted to do a Halloween wreath. I found a great one on Pinterest. It was plastic snakes hot glued to a grapevine wreath…

Someone got flowers for Valentine’s day.  😀  I had a box of flowers waiting for me at my desk after a meeting yesterday.  I think I was the only girl on the floor to receive flowers.  They are beautiful!  Matt did a great job and quite a few of the guys said he did a good job. We had a nice quite dinner at home with perfectly cooked steaks, baked potatoes and cupcakes.  Everything was delicious and the night was…

I may or may not

already have my Valentine’s day wreath on the door.  I know it’s a little early but I am really enjoying wreaths.  I made a burlap wreath a few months ago as a gift but ended up keeping it. I have many many plans for this wreath and I am really excited all my hard work paid off.  Burlap is kind of a pain in the ass to work with but I got some helpful pointers from a fellow crafter at…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Matt and I talked about going to the Chick fil-a Bowl for New Year’s Eve to watch the Auburn v. Virginia game but a few weeks ago at the ornament exchange the girls were talking about doing something low-key.  Since the bowl game hadn’t really been discussed further I decided to offer up our house.  {hehe}  Matt was less then thrilled but whatever, I felt like it was our turn to host something. Last week I sent the evite and…
