I’m going a little apey. Only 40 days until Christmas, people. I don’t think I’ll turn into one of those crazed shoppers because I already have half my gift list figured out. The gifts aren’t stressing me out at all, actually.
What I’m most looking forward to is… decorating OUR house! It’s Oscar and my first Christmas officially living together, and I really want to make it special. I’m planning some things already, trying to gear myself up for having to actually attempt to b a k e holiday cookies/cakes/breads.
– I have my bird tree decorations thanks to my Mama
– I have an adorable advent calendar that I bought at Target.
– This equally cute wreath
– My personalized stockings I just purchased
My plan is to fashion a tree skirt out of some shimmery gold sheer curtains I bought a few years ago that don’t have a place to live anymore.
I also have every intent of raiding my Mom’s Christmas music collection to put together a Christmas playlist. Everything from A Charlie Brown Christmas to Mariah Carey’s Christmas album (I’d like to see you find someone that can belt O Holy Night like that woman can – it can’t be done.)
I’ll probably end up taking pictures of everything once it’s placed because dammit, this is my first house. My first real home. And I’m gonna do it up in style.
