Wednesday Ramblings

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
This weekend I broke down and started decorating for Christmas.
I honestly usually wait until after Thanksgiving...but now that Aaron and I own our house, I have been getting really excited for holidays...and I want to start building a collection of decorations! 

But I already ran into the first obstacle...when did Christmas decorations start costing an arm and a leg?
I went to Target with great ideas - and could have executed said ideas, if I felt like spending $300...and that's not even including the tree! Yikes - I guess I was naieve, since I have never really decorated anything more than an apartment before.

I did end up getting a few things and it turned out pretty well, I think ;)
BUT come Janurary, you bet your ass I am going to be there buying up all the discount/clearance Xmas items for next year! ;)

Decorated banister and pathetic tree.
Funny story - Aaron 'Googled' how to prune my hibiscus tree for the winter and this happened...pretty sure it wasn't supposed to look like that, and it cracks me up every time I look at it. He still thinks it's going to grow back ;)

More garland and lights on the bookcase.

The mantle - SO excited to finally have a fireplace to hang stockings on!

I snapped a quick picture of the Target coat I posted about last week...
(Please excuse the ugly work bathroom and the fact I look like a bag lady - I had class after work that night ;)

And to wrap it all up...this little gem!

Three cheers for today being the last day of the work week!
This will be me - running towards the door at exactly 4:30 - if not earlier ;)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving! xx


  1. Loving your mantle and bookcase. For some insane (but amazing) reason Rite Aid has all Christmas stuff 50% already ha. So check out drug stores for deals maybe? I'll be right behind you out that door at 4:30! Have a great Thanksgiving!!

  2. Your decorations look lovely! You have such a beautiful blog! :)

    Feel free to visit my blog as well! You will find topics such as health, self-image, personal growth and motivation between others! <3


    New Blog Post: Count & Share Your Blessings This Season

  3. Love you decor already! So ready to get mine out!

  4. I'm realizing this year how expensive Christmas decorations are too! Hobby Lobby has all their Christmas decor 50% so I'm heading there soon. But I'll be on the look out for some great deals come December 26!
