Christmas Is On!

I think I just ordered my very last Christmas gift! The decorations are up and I've been listening to Christmas music since Thanksgiving, so I'm officially in the spirit!

I'm very OCD about getting my decorations up the Sunday after Thanksgiving. So we zipped home from the beach Sunday morning, bought a tree that afternoon, and I got it up by bedtime. I love decorating the tree, so that's the fun part for me!

And I love shopping - anyone who knows me certainly knows that about me...It's the wrapping that stresses me out! So, up next - Christmas goodies (while not gaining 10 lbs), Christmas parties - and of course - MORE DECORATING!!!

There are some amazing goodies and decorating ideas on Pinterest. Here's my Christmas board to check out and get some inspiration to get you into the holiday spirit too!

Let's get ready to celebrate the best birthday of the year!!


  1. Your mantle is beautiful! I've had Christmas music on non-stop and it is so fun! :) I'm yet to do any Christmas shopping because of my final exams but I have lists made so I can hop to it as I'm done!

  2. That tree is fantastic! I am all about Christmas shopping. I make these lists of all the gifts I've gotten for everyone. My husband thinks it's a little strange that I like reviewing my list over and over! :)

  3. I love, love, love your mantle!!! It is gorgeous, along with that beautiful tree. Love it!

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
