Okay, no stalling or beating around the bush. We are all busy packing, traveling, cooking, decorating and preparing for tomorrow's festivities.
Let's get to gettin'...
1. I am really digging this scarf. It's my new favorite, for the time being. I just got it last week for and have already worn it three times. Instagram pictures don't lie. It's a pattern mixer's dream. Polka dots, stripes and florals equal a win-win-win.
2. I always send out Christmas cards. I have never missed a year since Ross and I got married 12 years ago, but this year I am thinking of skipping the whole process entirely. Don't get me wrong, I love how our family pictures turned out and would love to share them. But let's be real, I could design a card, slapped it up on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and be done. It would reach more people than I have on my card list and save a mucho amount of moolah. I just can't find a card design that I like that doesn't end up costing $150.00, not including the postage. Anyone know about some smokin' deals out there on cards? I am just torn on what to do.
3. I am THAT girl who already has the tree up, the stockings hung and the burlap draped. Yes, I like to take one holiday at a time and plan on thoroughly stuffing my face and giving thanks tomorrow. I just like to have everything up and ready once we get back from the Thanksgiving holiday. It's a tradition. Don't judge or roll your eyes. Give a girl a break, I mean, we don't have the lights strung outside yet. And, in case you are looking for some SUPER DUPER cheap ornaments, hit up The Dollar Tree. You know, the place where EVERYTHING is a $1? Some of my favorites have come from there.
4. Completely unrelated to the holidays, I want new bedroom furniture!!! Yes, that was THREE exclamation points. This was the first big purchase we made as married couple....ELEVEN YEARS AGO! I am not sentimental about it at all. I want it gone. Ross says no. He doesn't put his foot down very often, but he is not budging with this one. He says it's solid wood, durable and that nobody really goes into our bedroom besides us, so who cares! Who cares? I care. So, my thinking cap has been placed upon my head to figure out what I can do to give this outdated furniture a fresh new look. I thought about making my own headboard with some Pinterest help or restaining. Any suggestions? I am desperate. It looks like I will continue to dream about this bed from Pottery Barn.
So, there you go, another Wednesday full of random.
I hope everyone has a blessed and happy Thanksgiving. Be safe if you are traveling. Forget about the diets and calories. Put the stresses of life aside for the day. Enjoy your time with family and friends. And write down ten things that you are thankful for. Writing them down on paper helps remind us all how lucky we are, no matter what life has thrown our way. God bless!
