Baby it’s Cold Outside

I had so much fun preparing for the holidays this year!  One of things that I was most excited about was the hot chocolate bar that I had planned.  For those of you who know me, I have a major sweet tooth.  It took almost everything out of me to not eat it all before Christmas Eve!  I found most of the stuff at World Market and HomeGoods – about 3 weeks before Christmas.

That’s a Wrap!

I absolutely LOVE wrapping presents.  I enjoy taking my time and adding something special to each present.  This year I decided to add an ornament to each gift. I found some really pretty ornaments at Kohls and they were 55% off!  Target also had some really cute ornaments this year as well as Indigo (one of my favorite Canadian home décor stores).  What is your favorite thing about wrapping presents?

Remix

I have been pretty bored the last couple of days;  I haven’t really left the house.  Still feeling a bit of discomfort after the procedure but nothing that I can’t handle.  Since I have been so stir crazy, I decided to try some different looks on our dining room table using what I already had out from Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving!

This was our first Thanksgiving with a dining table and chairs!  I have been so excited to decorate for Christmas that I didn’t really think too much about what I was going to do today.  I had pinned a ton of things on Pinterest but really never went out and bought any of it.  So today required some improvising.  I bought the pumpkins four years ago for a Halloween party that we hosted – I had totally forgot that I had black ones and almost didn’t even use them until I looked back at my pins!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

This past week I have been to Target at least three times in order to buy the perfect holiday decorations.  I swear, Target has the best selection of cute but still chic Christmas decorations.  I had the hardest time going to sleep Thursday night because I couldn’t stop thinking about decorating.  I spent most of today finalizing what all I actually needed by putting together a few trial looks.  Here is a sneak peak at our dining room.

Favorite Time of The Year

Christmas is my favorite Holiday.  I am so excited to start decorating and buying presents for our family and friends.  Brent and I plan out a year in advance when it comes to Christmas.  We set a budget and put that money aside gradually so that we don’t take such a huge hit in December.  We are going to start on our lists this week!

I’ve already started purchasing Christmas decorations for our house (last year I didn’t decorate since we were in Canada for the holidays).

Before and After!

Earlier this week I mentioned that I was planning on working on a few projects this weekend.  After a long hot Saturday, I finally finished what I had started a few weeks ago.  I was thrilled when I visited Lowes to purchase more paint and discovered that they had a new line of Valspar spray paints with an abundance of pretty colors (apparently I go there often because the lady at the check out told me that it was nice that I was back so soon).

Currently Craving – Living Room

I could spend hours upon hours looking at home décor and design ideas.  I think I have finally decided one what I am wanting for the living room – now I just have to save up for it all.   I still haven’t been able to find the perfect couch as of yet.  Restoration Hardware has one that I really love but it’s just so dang expensive.   Here are some of my ideas below!

Painting, Repurposing, Creating!

I have always loved decorating, rearranging and creating.  I have been busy the last few weeks with family and friends so haven’t had much time to post.  While my parents were in town, I found some chairs that I really LOVED – then I thought about it for a while and started to second guess myself (typical me).  My vision was to take the black chairs and either paint them myself or hire a professional to paint them a creamy white –

They Finally Arrived!

I posted a while back about the two rugs that I ordered and I am so excited to say that they are finally here!  I couldn’t be more pleased with how they both turned out.

The dining room rug is a flat weave and is fairly thin so we will definitely need to purchase a rug pad but other than that, having had zero reviews to look at for the rug, I am thrilled!
