My halls are decked.

Well, hey! It's been a hot minute since I've been around these parts, hasn't it?
Turns out that mixing a gluttonous holiday and a head cold from hell equates to something along the lines of a blogging vacation. Go figure.
Have no fear, I'm back and I have fun pictures to show you.
I know we all love pictures more than reading my random jib jab most days anyways.

So, while I was neglecting this sweet blog o' mine - here's what I was up to...

Friday my mom and I chose to ignore the fact that I was a walking germ ball and headed to the mall for a little Black Friday shopping. Really, I didn't do too much damage.
And then I saw these Ray Bans.....
Damage done.

Ella likes them too.


Saturday was painful to the 100th degree. 
If you don't know why, well, I watched the Florida State vs. Florida game and we lost horribly.
I still love my Noles...
Except now I owe this guy a week full of home cooked meals.
Womp womp. 


Yesterday my halls got decked, or something like that.
I went to a Christmas tree lot and picked out a cute little 4 1/2 footer - which I have named Charles.
(there's a tree on top of my car, for those of you who missed it... *uhem*KAIT*uhem*)

I wrapped Charles in some lights and a bunch of pink and gold ornaments.


I also put some balls in a vase.
Vase balls.

And I made my backdoor a little festive.

Andddddd, I got new lamps. These aren't holiday related at all but my living room is FINALLY coming together. My sofa, ottoman and tv stand get delivered on Thursday and I can't even describe how happy this makes me. Really though.

And really, that's it.
I'm moving real slow today thanks to having the last 5 days off. Oh, and my Florida blood is frozen this morning. Not that you Northerners have sympathy, or anything.

Alright, I'm out of here. See you tomorrow!

  3. Oh dear, I just had PTSD over that FSU game when I read this, UGHH!! Christmas is clearly the only thing that can make it better!

  4. I think the issue with the hidden tree is it lines up next to the big tree in the back and does a little camo for itself, sneaky sneaky Charlie. I'm sorry your time lost but that means my team won :-D hehe sorry

  14. I must say, I am a midwestern-er..?..and we moved to Florida about six months ago...we live in Tampa and HOLY CRAP it is FREEZING. we have had our heat on for a few days now. I hate it :( So it is okay that your FL blood is frozen. Because it really is unseasonably cold for FL right now. Have you noticed though that it will be really really cold one day and the next day it will be super nice, and then the next go back to bone chilling? vierd. anyhow this is a really long winded comment about weather...but no one up north will listen that it really IS cold down here lol

  29. Love the shades and vase balls. I also get a small tree every year since we put it on our bay window, there isn't much room. I'd say my halls are 3/4 of the way decked, just missing the tree!

  31. I'm still in denial about the game. I had to turn it off in fear that I would break the TV trying to slap Muschamp through it. SO MAD.

  42. Um, I missed the tree the first time too, thinking, why is she taking a picture in front of her car? Duh. LOL! And this Northerner feels --><-- that much sympathy. I'm only a few hours away from you and it is a bit chilly here in Georgia...but no where near as cold as Maryland and northern Pennsylvania were a few days ago when I had to free my arse off for two pups. Will you be in FL for Christmas? I'm coming down :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. AHhh I didn't know you were a Florida girl too!! Even though I'm super stoked that my Gators won, I am also really excited to find out that one of my favorite bloggers is from FL! :)
