Christmas Week: Part 1

I love Christmas. Like, loooooooooooooove it. 

It used to be because I loved the excitement of opening presents. {that hasn't entirely faded...}

But nowadays, its a mixture of the absolute joy that always seems to hang around, the celebration of Christ, the family get-togethers, the endless hot chocolate and candy, and most of all, watching other people open the gifts I got them. 


Since Chris & I travel up north to be with family for the holidays, we open our presents to each other before we leave. This year, we decided that instead of opening them all on one day, we'd create a new, beautiful thing called......

Christmas Week. 


We open one present a day, every day this week. 

Day #1:

I got a scarf, Chris got a Green Lantern shirt. 

Day #2:

I got BOOTS, Chris got a wrench organizer. 

Day #3:

I got a hot chocolate maker, Chris got a Hand Reflexology Kit. 
{He's already pretty amazing at it...I swear it makes my headaches feel better.}

 Oh yes. That's fur-lined on the inside all the way down.

I love the spirit of Santa. :)

A Thursday Laugh

This is my all-time absolute favorite Halloween commercial. 

And if it doesn't make you laugh...well, obviously there's something wrong with you. 

Happy Thursday!

Christmas is in the air...and on my door...

I love Christmas! 
{have I mentioned that yet?}

And I came up with this Christmas wreath all on my own. 

It's super easy.

First, get a wreath and lots of ribbon {it takes more than you think}. I picked up a grapevine wreath and a couple spools of ribbon at JoAnn's {leave it wrapped}. Then, head to your local dollar store and get a few stems of fake poinsettas. Feel free to also look at the DI for other fun embellishments. 

Wrap your wreath. 

Behead the poinsettas.

Ready your other fun decorations.
{I just cut up a candle circle I found at DI. I wanted a bit of green in my wreath}

Hot glue away!!!!

Glue as many flowers or as few as you'd like until it looks just the way you want it. :)



Anyone else have some cute Christmas crafts?

The First Day of December Joyfulness...

Let the Christmas month begin!

Fittingly, it snowed today. 

Yes, I know the days are wrong. But they were right when I took this picture!

Baby, it's cold outside!
