I’m no “holiday decorator”, in fact I’ve never been in a holiday decorated home. My family loves the holidays, but when it comes to christmas, we had the nice tree, the wreath outside, and the tree full of presents on christmas day. I never really felt into the christmas spirit until it was actually christmas day.
Being a blogger, it’s fun that I get to come across some blogs where they show off all their little DIY christmas decorations, as well as how they change the theme of their home to fit the bill. Since I’ve started my #BeforeSchool Challenge, it got me thinking about how much I want to have memories with my children, and one of those memores is creating a loving home that they want to be in.
So this Christmas, I’m decorating. Little knick knacks, tinsel all over the house, and decking the halls, literally.
I got started and headed over to my local Garden Ridge to see what they had and was floored at the selection. I had no idea there were so much stuff that you could decorate with and for. I mean, door knob decorations? Really?
Nonetheless, I was determined and blow the minds off my kids and guests.
Little did I know, 2 hours later, I was stressed and looking at a full cart full of, what looked to me, junk.
I was planning on buying the lights and everything to decorate the outside of our house too, but at this point I was beyond exhausted.
I dragged myself to the counter, paid my dues, and came home to take nap over my knick knacks.
The end product?
And we still need a tree, that will then need decorations.
…….Oh the outside lights as well.
Whew, let’s get this started!!!
