Christmas Home Tour

Come on in, y'all! We've lived in this house for 1 year tomorrow and I haven't given a house tour. Mostly because there are far more empty walls than ones with stuff hanging and there are several things we still need to "finish" decorating. We did just paint some walls and are getting a little braver with hanging things. I hope we get rugs, curtains and all those things we still need in the near future. Until then, here's a little Christmas tour, starting with my DIY alphabet wreaths

This my be my favorite room in the house. Mostly because it's almost always clean. We had an artificial tree from when we were in temporary living last year, so we set it up in this sitting room, along with our "rustic chic" decorations. I call it my tree, because the hubs hates most of the ornaments on it. There is a leopard high heel somewhere...

I love Willow Tree and this nativity that we got as a wedding gift is one of my favorite Christmas things. The peace marquee is from Target. I know they have a joy one this year! The snowman and tree (I don't see the exact one) are from Pier One.

Just found this cute bag at TjMaxx last week!

My sis made me these wine bottles for the "winter wonderland" decor in the dining room.

The Wallace Silver Bells are a family tradition. My grandma has given my Mom and Aunt one every year and now my Mom gives them to us girls. They have a different pattern each year and are just so pretty.

Remember the empty walls? Well, one of them got put to good use with a Christmas card tree.

Some twine, washi tape and a gold star make for a cute card display. It's even more full now as we've gotten several more cards in the mail. I love doing something different with the cards each year, but I may have to repeat this one!

We got a huge, real tree from the local farmers market. It smells so good! The living room is classic Christmas decor, including initial stockings and Danbury Mint ornaments that the hubs family gives to us every year. They're a different pattern each year and are gorgeous!

The last tree is upstairs. This one is the one we bought the year we got married. It's just barely 6ft tall and I had to string some extra lights around a burned out section. But, it has all the fun, colorful ornaments and ones the boys have made. I hung paper snowflakes above it and Callan thinks it's straight out of the movie Frozen.

That's all folks! I think I will regret putting up all these trees come January, but for now, I'm loving Christmas everywhere!

Last Minute Girlie Gift Guide

Are you a last minute shopper this year? I've been there plenty of years. While I'm mostly done, I still have a couple little things to grab. Most places I've seen go through at least today for guaranteed shipping by Christmas, so I thought I'd share a few things that I think you should get! I have all of these and am vouching for their awesomeness!

Dirty laundry bags - How cute are these for traveling? Or home? Or anywhere? Okay, I rest my case.

QTee Converse - How adorable are these?! I got these Converse in a British Plaid and not only did I pick the pattern, but the exact colors I wanted in them, too! With a ton of patterns and even more colors to choose from, you can create the perfect pair of Converse for your loved one. Or yourself. Which is what I suggest. 

Blanket Scarf - If you don't have one of these, well, you just may be the coldest person in town. These things are huge, cute and perfect for all winter long. There are so many tutorials with ways to wear them, too. 

Blow Out Cream - My sister got me hooked on this stuff when she was here over my Birthday. I can't believe the difference in my hair when I use it. It gets it up and smooths it all out. I don't know why I ever didn't use it! 

Monogram mug - Anthropologie I love my monogram mug. Like LOVE it. It makes me feel fancy pants. The black version is available year round, but the gold only comes out during the holidays! 

Portable Charger - Amazon via RS I find myself more often than I should be, needing just a little more juice in my phone. I do everything on my phone. Emails, listening to music while I run, games for the kids, long chats with my momma and blasting kidsbop radio for endless hours can do quite the number to a battery life. Better charge it in style. 

Moisturizing Slippers - I got a pair from Geluxury and they're crazy awesome. They have a liner that feels a little gel like, but it doesn't get anything on your feet. It's infused with 7 botanical oils and is dermatologist tested to repair your feet. You only wear them for 30 minutes at least 2 times a week. (I've been doing about 5) I was skeptical at first if they would work on my super dry heels and I'm here to tell you, I'm a believer. In 2 weeks, my feet look so much better! 

Coffee Tee - Is there anything that sums up a Monday morning better than this? I didn't think so. This tee, along with tons of other styles, is customizable. You can change the colors that you like best. I chose this pink ombre. 

Still need a hostess gift? The adorable new Northpole line from Hallmark makes the perfect gift to bring to a party. 



I love the red and blue snowflake theme and wouldn't mind one bit having these given to me! You can order by today for Christmas delivery. 

Now hurry your little procrastinating booties up and finish your shopping!
