Holiday Break Recap/Christmas Decor & SANTA!!

Hello December

We are officially in the BEST MONTH EVER…. DECEMBER!!!!! Christmas, Birthdays, Holiday parties, FOOD, Shopping, Cold Weather, Christmas Decorations & SANTA! Sorry for the all caps and numerous exclamations but I literally am obsessed with Christmas! I do love me some Thanksgiving and stuffing my face with super unhealthy food but everything about Christmas just makes me love life.

My favorite picture from Thanksgiving this year has to be my dog waiting for my parents to arrive… lol

I hope you all got lots of goodies for Black Friday. We sure did…. We started about 7 pm on Thursday to let all of the “crazies” clear out and get their goodies. Yes I am a crazy too but I can not stand in line for a $100 tv lol – Now maybe if it was a $100 Louis Vuitton or FREE Kendra Scott πŸ™‚ We did find lots of good deals and cleaned up at Toys R Us…..

Being home with a 3 (almost 4 year old) for 5 days has its moments and you can only keep them inside so long. It rained the ENTIRE break which was no fun for either of us. Finally on Friday, the rain let up a little so we took advantage of some park time. And he didn’t wanna leave…. lol

Then the clouds came rolling back in and the rain didn’t stop until Sunday afternoon. It was a wet holiday break… BUT that gave me more time to decorate the house and put up the tree for Christmas. It was time!!!! I blared Christmas music throughout the whole house, poured me a fancy drink and got to work.

I think it took me an hour just putting the tree together – then I needed another drink by that time!!

Since I was on a roll… I went ahead and completed the whole fireplace mantle! Obsessed with these signs I got fromΒ The Sister StudioΒ on Etsy. They were super easy to print off and I put them in frames I already had. I got the “MERRY” sign from Michaels which if you have not been yet you NEED TO GO!!!

And now the only thing we had left to do was visit the jolly man himself….. SANTA!!!!!!!

    • Thanks!!! You? Run?… I wouldnt expect anything less πŸ™‚ When is the Jingle Bell Run? If you want to know the truth, I literally have something going on EVERY NIGHT until Christmas!!!! What is wrong with me?!?!?

  • Your leopard tree skirt is beautiful! My dog is the same way with my parents. If I ask him if he wants to go see his grandma or grandpa, he runs to the wall where his leash hangs like LET’S GO!!!!

    • Thank I did have an all leopard tree a couple years ago but lost of my decorations πŸ™ Im a little leopard obsessed!

      • Ah I hate that! I am too. Clothes, jewelry, home decor, I love it all.

  • Your tree is GORGEOUS!!! Love the mantle too- that sign is to die for! Super pumped for this month as well- definitely the BEST time of the year!! P.S. your son is a doll!

    • Thanks girl… The signs were super cheap and easy! My son is a handful but I wouldnt trade it for anything πŸ™‚
