Friday fun day?

Friday fun day?

Last night the girls has our 3rd annual ornament exchange.  This is really fun and I love the tradition we’ve started.  It’s fun to go out and buy a cute ornament.  Pier 1 is my fave store for this.  The past 2 years I’ve ended up with really great ornaments.  Last year I got a super cute bell snowman and this year I got a red ball with silver glittery reindeer.  🙂  Now I just need to hang my new ornament…

Christmas Craft Extravaganza

Christmas Craft Extravaganza

That’s what happened at our house this weekend.  I finally finished the paper Christmas trees I’ve been working on for, oh 2 weeks.  I also made an ornament wreath for over the fireplace.  I have a lighted wreath for the front door but I knew I wanted to try an ornament wreath.  I also got the mantel finished complete with dollar store stocking holders. They don’t look too bad.  I couldn’t really find any stands for them.  I also didn’t…

I just can’t get in the mood to decorate the tree.  I don’t know what it is.  It is currently chillin’ in the corner of the den waiting to be fluffed, lit and decorated.  Right now it is a sad sad tree.  But I DON’T WANNA decorate it right now.  I still haven’t finished my decorative Christmas trees from last week.  Not to mention the stack of Christmas cards that need to be addressed, stamped and mailed.  Ughh, why do…

Hello November

Hello November

Today I had lunch outside with the hubs.  Actually we’ve had the windows open for a few days now and one might even say it’s a bit warm in here.  Literally, it’s kind of hot in the house, in NOVEMBER!  I am not going to complain though.  This weather has  been amazing for this time of year. I hope the weather stays this way for a few more days.  With Thanksgiving only a few days away, it would be nice…

Thanksgiving table

Thanksgiving table

My new obsession with Pinterest has fueled my desire to decorate the house.  For the past few days I’ve been trying to decide how to decorate the table for Thanksgiving.  We will be hosting Matt’s parents and maybe another couple.  This means I want to do something great for our Thanksgiving table.  I ran to Carolina Pottery yesterday and found a really great bowl but it was too large, not really the right color and well, too pricey. At lunch…
