No really, I am. I’m so bummed it hasn’t snowed here yet, I can’t even tell you.
But anyways, it is Christmas decor time! I love decorating for Christmas. We actually did it this year the weekend after Thanksgiving, although I’ve bought a few things to add to the decor since then. Really, I don’t have THAT much decor because I’m kind of cheap and I never want to spend money on it… plus we don’t really have people over that often so I feel a little silly going all out for just B and I (and let’s face it, it’s really just me because he doesn’t care).
But, I at least have enough stuff to make our great room look cheery and for the first time I did a little bit of decorating in the man cave. Nothing big, just santa hats on the guitars and a few rock star nutcrackers.
Festive, right? I bought us a white Christmas tree last year because I thought it was funny but the joke was kind of on me because once I got it all done up, I loved it! The only thing, really, is that it is way too small for the space. The room is about 18 feet high there, so we should probably get a bigger tree. I think I might look at the after-Christmas sales this year at one of the bigger trees. Except… I’m not really sure how you decorate a tree that is like 15 feet high? Or even put it together? lol. I guess I’ll have to look into that. But for now? Love.
And I especially love our mantel. I bought B and I new stockings this year and I think they’re so cute. I also put up smaller stockings for the pets. I meant to personalize them… but then I didn’t. Maybe next year!
Also, I wanted to point out a trick that I learned this year. If you only have two stocking holders like we do, but you have more than two stockings, just run any standard curtain rod on the stocking holders and string your stockings on that! See how we have 5 stockings hanging? And really, I think the curtain rod looks cute! It was perfect that it matched the silver stocking holders, which was a total fluke because that curtain rod had just been hanging out in our basement since we moved in here.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to! Everyone else as excited about Christmas decor as I am? Anyone try to dress up their pets, or is that just me?
