The Nordstrom Gift Card Winner Is . . .

Good morning friends!  We’re midway through this week and I don’t know about you, but I feel like it’s taken me the last two days to get my bearings again after Thanksgiving break!  We’ve had a lot going on and I’m co-hosting a “Favorite Things” party with my girlfriends tomorrow, so I’ll be getting ready for that today!  Should be so much fun to see what everyone brings- our limit was $25 so I’ll share the ideas with you after the party.

And speaking of favorite things, y’all let me know what you were hoping Santa would bring YOU!

Dining Room Christmas Decor

Dining Room Christmas Decor

If you caught that shot of me yesterday, you saw I was busy putting the finishing touches on our holiday decor in the dining room!  After the trees and stairs are decorated, the dining room is usually next on my list because that is the first room you see when you enter our home and we also host Christmas dinner, so I like the get the decor underway early.  

Of course, I used my handy and beautiful Everett foyer table to set the scene and this year, and I was inspired first when I saw these

Best of Honey We’re Home 2014 & Thank You

How are y’all doing now that Christmas is a few days behind us?  We’re still moving slow and on “vacation” while my son is home from school this week.  But, we’re starting to pick up steam and I’m sure by next week will be all ready for the cleaning and organizing that comes with the start of a new year.  I already pulled out my 2015 planner and can’t wait to get writing in it.

I’m always amazed to look back at the end of the year to see what we’ve done and accomplished in the previous 12 months.

Christmas Decor at Our House

Christmas Decor at Our House

This year, our holiday decor is taking place rather s-l-o-w-l-y.  I pulled out all of our Christmas bins, but so far, less than half have been unpacked.  The bits that did get unpacked or a few purchased new this year are making our home feel special for the holidays.  

My son is obsessed with the countdown to Christmas this year, so he loves our homemade Advent calendar and things like this nutcracker that lets him actively count down the days until Christmas.  He pulls the nutcracker down everyday as soon as he gets home from school and changes the wooden blocks to reflect how many more days.

Oh What Fun Tree

Oh What Fun Tree

The childhood thrill of putting up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving has not faded.  It’s been our family tradition as long as I can remember and we’ve continued it in our house.  I still get giddy even anticipating the tree, but seeing it actually come together with all the decor and listening to Christmas songs while we add the ornaments is a favorite time of the whole year.

 

It’s a beautiful thing to observe my young son getting the same thrill of decorating the tree that I have.  He kept asking when we could decorate and this year,
