I Might Be Ridiculous

because I couldn’t resist buying this cute “Merry Christmas” sign . . . LAST MONTH!!!  I found it at Hobby Lobby, where, apparently Christmas is upon us.  Have you seen those signs, “Christmas is coming, are you ready?”  I always laugh when I see them, but this time, they lured me in. image I’m really not into a rush for Christmas, in fact, I love the fall season and Thanksgiving.  But this will be the first Christmas in our new home and with James.   I have a memory of being a young girl, probably around 4, on Christmas Eve, and my dad coming into my room before bed and sharing with me the story of Jesus and how that is why we celebrate Christmas.   Now, I get to pass on these things to my son.  And in the spirit of sharing, I’m passing along that in honor of her 32nd birthday, Beauty in the Attempt is giving away a $32 gift card to Target and also a lovely butter dish.  Go here to enter.  Also, I have updated my blogroll, which you can check out under “Blog Love” in my sidebar.  Have a great weekend y’all!   . . . And if you are ridiculous too, please let me know so I can have some company:)

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Hobby lobby! Lucky you, we don't have those here. I need to update my blog roll, really, really soon. It is a sorry state, 3 blogs listed, and I follow like 100! Thanks for including mine, that is sweet of you.

  2. You are too funny! I love what you grabbed. The sign is adorable. Funny thing happened yesterday on my trip out with my girlfriend…I too bought two christmas items! However, one can be used year round if I choose. Thanks for including me on your blog roll. I need to update my blog…the picture really needs to go the opposite direction! Too much white space. Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. You are not alone on this one. Michaels already have cristmas stuff out too, so naturally I had to purchase a few things.

    Christmas is awesome and I think when you have kids, it makes it that much more special.

  4. You are by far ridiculous…the sign is so cute! I heart "H to the L." It will be so fun to decorate a new home for Christmas. I can not wait to steal…I mean see what you do. 🙂 Thank you for the mention and the addition to your blog roll. I am so humbled. Your blog is by far so gorgeous! 🙂


  5. Impressive! I am no where near buying Christmas decorations yet! I still need to get my fall pumpkins 🙂

    Happy Friday!

  6. Meghan,

    I love it! I think the fact that there are new little people to celebrate the holidays with make them even more special and even more anticipated! Not to mention, sharing the important details of our faith.

    I get emotional just thinking about it!

    So no, I think they are adorable and I don't blame you one bit!

  7. A girl after my own heart. I LOOOVE Christmas decorations. But I am trying really hard to be a good girl and not buy any just yet. Jason has given me strict instructions that I can't Christmas-fy my house until December 1st. Those men! Have a great weekend! 🙂

  8. I already bought some super cute Christmas wrap. Does that count? I love love love Christmas time with the kids. You will have so many great memories with James in the new house. You are not ridiculous 🙂

  9. You're not alone, Megan! I went into Hobby Lobby in July looking for some outdoor patio decor … They were resetting the store and had already gotten rid of all of their summer things — In JULY!!! Christmas is my favorite time of year, but that was a bit early … Even for me. Haha. Maybe it's time I went back to find some holiday goodies.

  10. um, I arrived home last night to find the West Elm package I ordered last week….a clearanced out Christmas stocking!!! Yes, I already have 4 stockings, but I couldn't resist this $10 steal and free shipping!!!

    Christmas with kids is the BEST!!! I love traditions at holidays….and it's fun to see the new traditions our family is developing now.

    Wish we could go out again this weekend!! 🙁

  11. Too funny! They do lure us in don't they? I was already peeking at the ornaments at PB yesterday. I did a lot of after Christmas shopping last year so I need to be good…just a couple pretty things.
    You are going to have the most wonderful holidays this year with the baby and the new house, looking forward to your festive home!

  12. You're not ridiculous! I love Christmas, too. I just bought a "food gifts" magazine and it's all about Christmas foods. I got so exciting reading it. The Merry Christmas sign is so cute. I bet you're going to have a wonderful first Christmas with James. I can't wait until I can share Jesus' birthday with my kids someday! What a blessing

  13. Don't worry! I am obsessed with Christmas too!!! If I found a sign that cute, I totally would have bought it!!!

  14. That sign is so cute — you're not ridiculous at all! I was at HL last night and was surprised to see that all the fall stuff was already 50% off!

    And thanks for adding me to your blogroll!

  15. I just had my first Hobby Lobby experience (we finally got one in VA) and the store is SO amazing! I'm in love and can't wait to see all the cute Christmas decor.
