Happy 2019! Yeah, I know we are like 2 weeks in but this is my first post this year so it had to be said. For me, typically January is full of energy and motivation. This year, the energy is a bit low but I still have motivation to continue making this house its best self! Besides house plans for the new year, we sprinkled our 2019 calendar with several vacations! Expectations are high for 2019! Today, I am talking about our new plans for our living room update. Please note that when I say “we,” I mean I. It is possible I told the hubs I ordered a rug for the living room but he has no idea what else I plan to do. He does not really care unless I paint everything white. He would have strong opposition to that:(
I do not normally set a fancy dining room table for the holidays. We keep it pretty casual here. However, we had an opportunity to have our Christmas home photographed for a feature so I went ahead and did a simple Christmas table setting. And I have to say, it was so fun and easy and so I may do this more often!
I am sharing our Christmas tree for 2018 today. If you haven’t put your tree up yet, I am sure it is only a matter of another week or two before you do! I bought a new tree at the end of last season from Home Depot (this exact tree is no longer available but I will link a similar one below) and I could.not.wait to put it up and see how a different shape tree would look. Our new tree is about the same height but not as full with a narrower profile. It fits so much better in our space!
We have a busy November (hello 3 birthdays, Thanksgiving, Nashville trip and hockey) so I went ahead and got up our Christmas decor early. Its ok if Christmas decor before Thanksgiving is not your thing. It usually isn’t my thing either but that is the way it is working out this year. I thought I would share my early Christmas decor with you in case it inspires you when the time comes to get your Christmas on! Come in and take a look at our Christmas 2018!
Halloween is creeping up and my bar cart is ready! Bring on the costume parties! The bar cart is obviously not for the kids but they still love rearranging the glasses, using the straws and stocking the waters for me. They love seeing how this little area changes for the holidays. Lets check out this year’s Halloween bar cart!
