I am so not afraid to admit that I LOOOOVVVEEEE Christmas! I love the decorations, the food, the shopping and of course, the presents! I am not, I repeat NOT one of those crazy people who put their decorations up as soon as Halloween is over. I normally wait until the day after Thanksgiving, however, this year, Bryan and I will be in Phoenix until the 30th, so I wanted to get it done since I know I will be tired once we return.
This year is especially fun because we are in our new house! I already had plenty of decor from apartment living, but a new house calls for new decor, right?... That's what I thought too! Above you'll see the outside of our house... I am thinking we need to add more to it though... Maybe some lights on each pillar? Yeah, that's what I thought. Next you'll see my tree. You can see my holiday colors of choice are red, silver and white. It just so happens to match our curtains too! I think my favorite part of my tree is my tree skirt... It is actually just a red flat-sheet because I couldn't afford a real one when I was in college, but I love how full it looks compared to a regular tree skirt, so I've kept it!
I love ball ordainments. I love how simple and classic they look. I also love how it is a huge decor trend right now! So, this year I threw them in wherever I usually use vase filler. Easy AND cheap!!!
Let the Holidays begin!!! (Bryan and Wrigley refused to pose for the picture, so it's just JD and I.)
