Well Mama and I decorated in a whirl wind! I still have two more projects to finish and my Christmas decorations will be complete.
It is a little different this year. My theme is "Simply" Christmas with a little vintage glam of course!
For the most part, most of my decor is simple, but I will share more later this week!
So on to the weekend highlights!
Thursday night was Christmas for us. Literally. Someone, and don't worry, Ken, I will not mention who, just had to open up presents and just could not wait for Christmas.
That certain someone was overly excited about the Toshiba Thrive that came in the mail.
Last week, I explained to that someone that I could not open presents unless my Christmas decor was up.
Well, one day I can home from school, my Christmas tree was up, lit, and ready to decorate.
Motivation, my friends, is a wonderful thing!
I will be listening in for next year's motivation as well. I think this will be a new tradition!
On Friday night, my brother in law brought us dinner. It was so sweet especially since no one at our house wanted to go out any where. We watched a little Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides. I don't think I like this one as much. It may be that Pinterest was also beckoning me!
Saturday we did what should be done on Saturdays - whatever you wanted to do. This included laying in different positions on the couch reading Sookie Stackhouse books, lunch out at Five Guys (I was never so happy to see a greasy bag full of burgers and fries!), and a little shopping.
I also worked on some decor ...
While listening to the Michael Buble Holiday station on Pandora.
Our evening was spent in front of the chiminea outside, cuddled up next to each other playing Words with Friends while listening to Pandora. It was awfully romantic, especially when Ken got 105 points on "Jell." Well, this little story is very similar to the Tortoise and the Hare. What happened in the Tortoise and the Hare also happened last night. Ha!
Sunday was spent at Church and eating a quick lunch at Jason's Deli. I do mean quick. Here I am trying to eat my lunch with people standing up all around me eyeing every bite because they wanted our table. They were probably Baptist.
Later on in the afternoon, I did a photo shoot of some of my Christmas projects and Ken worked in his shop. He was very quite. This should have clued me in that something was up, but no, I was content in my trying to figure out Photoshop (which still hasn't happened).
Lo and behold, here he comes wanting me to come out and look at something. He said, "Tootsie wishes she could have it, but I told her it was for big people."
This is what happens when you leave your husband outside alone for an hour:
He builds a swing.
A swing to swing on and to confuse the Tootsie Girl as to why you are moving so fast.
I am just waiting for that branch to break and somebody to bust there booty.
Who else enjoyed this gorgeous December day?
May your week be filled with rest and relaxation after all this hustle and bustle.
May your husband build you a swing so that you can just watch the clouds go by!
