This past weekend was so fun and busy! Not only did I have a pageant send off party for a friend, and a baby shower for another friend, AND took a quick Christmas card photo with Lindsey Koch Photography, but out came the Christmas boxes! I work at a small business that I love, but one of the downfalls is that everyone is required to work on Black Friday, AKA no long Thanksgiving weekend for this girl.

No worries, however. That just means I decorate the weekend before Thanksgiving! Down to the basement I went and began grabbing the five (ahem, and growing) bins of decor. I absolutely love dragging them upstairs and taking over the entire floor deciding where to put everything. I usually start with the tree since my collection of ornaments takes a lot of the space. Since my mom turned me into a Christmas fanatic early, I have been collecting ornaments for decades. Some of my newest favorite ornaments are the personalized ones that Nate and I get every year! We got our first one after only six months of dating. I knew he was a keeper if he supported my Christmas obsession.
Another favorite ornament of Nate's, the Adrian Peterson ornament, next to one of my favorites, the Rockette ornament!
Since I used my old tree topper on my cupcake tree, I started looking for a new tree topper early. Almost instantly I found the most perfect tree topper that I am pretty sure was made for me! I have been drooling over this dang thing for almost a month now, and decided I couldn't wait for the sales. It is mine!
I thought my tree looked so cute, stepped back and took a photo. Something seemed to be missing.
Then I remembered I bought a cute whimsical spray from Michael's. Duh! Such a fun accent on the tree.
I am so happy with how it turned out!
One thing I am not so happy with is my sideboard. This time of year is the whole reason I wanted one! I had visions of a cute Christmas scene, houses, fake snow, or something magical happening. Not so much. It pretty much became the island of misfit decor that I couldn't figure out where else to display. I am in desperate need of the perfect table runner and need to edit the contents on the table. Rats. Definitely in progress.
I do love my chair covers, another recent addition to my collection this year. So fun!
Nate said that our house looks like a Christmas explosion, which I take as a compliment! Merry Christmas! I mean, Happy Thanksgiving!
