Although tomorrow is the first day of December, the apartment looks like Christmas Eve. Packed up all the orange and yellow and pitched the pumpkins. This weekend, we got an early jump on getting into the holiday spirit. Went to Target, Arne's, Party Boy, Ross and Jo-Ann's, and purchased: lots of ornaments, the most fantastic star tree topper: a real Christmas tree (yee!!), stockings, red and green candles, lights and garland, wreaths, holiday hand/kitchen towels... and a bottle of champagne + cranberry (bye bye Mimosas, hello Poinsettias!) to celebrate! The inside is complete, sans the green garland/ white twinkle lights for the bannister and the bunting..but we'll get to that. This week we'll work on the outside! CHRISTMASTASTIC. And did I mention how amazing it smells in there? oh. amazing. I just want to bake/cook all day while listening to Bing tell me how badly he wants a white Christmas.
Photos to come!
Turkey day?..Couldn't have asked for a better weather. It was absolutely beautiful in Covington this past week, and we all really enjoyed the day filled with the best food and family visits. Hope your holiday was wonderful!
