Hi guys :) I'm joining Amy and friends for coffee this morning...thanks for coming. If you're hoping to just stop in for a quick sec, good luck because I'm in the chatting mood...
and there's like 20 pictures in this post, so stick around for a while.
This weekend was good. We had a date night and got our Christmas shopping done.
We had a delicious dinner and time alone was really nice. We do that every year...dinner and shopping. It's a good tradition.
On Sunday we went to the National Gingerbread Competition (there must be a "national competition for everything) to see all the gingerbread masterpieces.
Pretty incredible...and edible....(i had to!)
We also wrapped gifts and finished a few little projects.
I completely ripped off Lemonade Makin' Mama's idea here and sprayed these cheapo stools white and stenciled a number on top...she knows about it...and she's ok with it.
I contracted in my darling second son to do the distressing. I think he did quite well.
We may be on to something here...professional distresser??
Also this weekend? One of my etsy items made the front page on Sunday!!! Hooray, right??!!
Ok, now enough weekend talk and more Christmas talk...
here's some pics of my living room all Christmassy...
This grey cabinet is the one I just bought at IKEA. I love it. I bought it so that I could use it in lots of different areas, not just for the TV. I can see this as a sideboard table, buffet, craft cupboard, in the bedroom...so many options. Yeah IKEA!
Some of these aren't really that Christmassy, but I've never shown you my living room before...I don't have a whole lot out or up. But I like the simple for now.
It took me all of one hour to decorate our temp home for Christmas.
Now on to the lower level...
we have a like a family room of sorts that's pretty big, so it is used as a play area and my craft area. My craft area was pretty messy at the time of this photo shoot...
I want to really organize my space today. When we moved in here, not long ago, I just kind of shoved stuff here and there and haven't really organized...that's my goal for today.
So...on to the nicer part of the room.
We got two real trees this year. The kids love having allllll their handmade ornaments on their own tree. I love it too! Just look at this tree!! There's hardly a bare branch!!
So there's my Christmas house. Hope you enjoyed the tour and your coffee...
