Anyways, it's been way too long. AGAIN. No reasonable excuses here. Although, we did run away to Hawaii for almost 2 weeks (heaven) so I guess that's kind of an excuse. And then when we got back.... VOILA.. winter! With winter comes the best holiday ever. I am, however, a little anxious about this one due to the current familial situation. So my coping mechanisms for the upcoming festivities are to:
1. Craft the HELL out of this Christmas.
2. Drink. Not in an alchoholic kind of way, but in a take-the-edge-off kind of way.
3. Make a fuck load of *amazing* food and WOW the socks off our holiday house guests.
The three above mechanisms unexpectedly came in to play today. Far earlier than I expected. But it was fun. We put up our first ever "together" Christmas tree. We covered the exterior of our cute little house in those weird neon-like LED lights (personally, I like the old school Christmas lights) and we drank kind of a lot of wine in the process. See some of our Christmas sparkle around the house.....
|Stockings. Cute, right?|
|Let the madness begin.|
|The finished project!! OH YAAA!|
|Not Christmasy at all, but I'm in love with it. All the shells I collected in Hawaii.|
|Cute little homemade garland on the mantel.|
|More Christmas. Just not done. I need to make that weird hole in the wall look good.|
It's not even December yet, and I kind of hate myself for what I am about to say, but HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
