It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas! I have had such a busy month already, but I wanted to share a little bit of my Holiday Decor today.
This year I am a part of the Holiday Homes Tour Blog Hop with my Merry Monday Hosts and a bunch of my favorite bloggers. See bottom of the post for all the links to everyone’s Home Tours!
I say I am sharing a few of my decorations because we just got back from our holiday vacation in New York City! This was my second time going to New York during this time of year and it was awesome! The city is so fun, all the stores are decorated, the trees are all lit up and the streets are bustling. Want to see what it’s like to go to NYC for the holidays? Check out my last year’s New York Holiday Trip post for all the fun places we visited.
But before we get to the tour…..we had a couple of funny fiascos with our Christmas tree this year. We went out to dinner and came home to our 9ft pre-lit tree with the bottom branches all chewed up! Our new puppy chewed through the electric lights and blew out the whole tree. So, for the first time in years, we ended up purchasing a real tree. I had forgotten how great they make the house smell and how pretty they are to decorate. Of course, the downside is they shed like crazy.
Fiasco #2 was when I was cleaning up the needles after decorating the second tree for the second time, my vacuum cleaner blew up! I guess it wouldn’t be the holidays without a little bit of crazy, right?
This post doesn’t show a lot of my decorations this time. Since we were going to be out of town during the month of December, I decided not to go all out with our holiday decorations. I still thought it would great to at least share a few of my focal points of the decor I did put up. If you look closely I am sure you will see a few of my projects in the pics too!
