LOL! What in the world am I talking about, right? Well, today I woke up earlier than I thought and was in the mood to get things organized. I went through my kids' baby clothes that I have been hanging onto (we won't even go into the tears I shed during that process!) and then I found the Christmas decorations! I thought, why not??!! We usually put them up the weekend after Thanksgiving but Karlee's family will be here next week (they arrive on Wednesday, yay!) and we wouldn't be able to put them up until the following Monday night. I decided since we didn't really have much planned today, why not just do it! So I did!! LOL!!
My friend, Mary, encouraged me to buy a bunch of garland last year at Hobby Lobby after Christmas when they were all on sale. I have NEVER done that kind of Christmas decor before. She was planning on helping me put it all up this year but her family moved out of state last month. Boo hoo!! So..... I had to figure it out by myself with the help of google and texting my friend! LOL! I am so happy with how it all turned out!! What do you think??
BEFORE: With just the plain garland.
AFTER: With the added embellishments!
With the Christmas music playing, I was in the mood to go back to Hobby Lobby and get more decorations!! I made this table display all by myself! Aren't you proud of me? I am sooooo much more of a paper creator and not good at home decor. I think it turned out super awesome though!
Then, of course, we had to pull down the tree and decorate it! My husband thinks that when Karlee's family gets here on Wednesday they are going to think it is Christmas and not Thanksgiving! LOL!!
By the way, Walmart is starting their Black Friday on Thursday at 8:00 PM this year!! It is earlier and earlier every year!!
I also wanted to share this thought on Twinkies! Funny how since I've had children I have NEVER bought Twinkies for my kids because I grew up with them and thought they might be a little unhealthy BUT now that Hostess has gone out of business I have found myself searching the store shelves for them. Unfortunately they are all GONE and a $2.50 box of Twinkies is now going for over $100 on Ebay! Isn't that super funny???
Have a great weekend!!
