Janelle In Real Life: It's beginning to look a lot like...

It's beginning to look a lot like...

Christmas!

It's the day after thanksgiving, which means all things Christmas are officially ok. Only guess what? I started decorating for Christmas a week ago, and I'm not even sorry about it.

Our simple little Christmas tree with pinecone ornaments & a burlap tree skirt. I'm seriously loving it.

An advent calendar, snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, and a ball of mistletoe so conveniently hanging in our hallway entrance (incase hubby needs some enticing for extra holiday kisses).

And two little holiday woodland creatures with the cutest little tree.

I got a lot of this years decorations from Target (duh) and as usual, they pulled through for me. Also, in honor of Christmas time, here's my list of things my family and I need to do before the holiday is upon us:
Go ice skating
See the lights at Temple Square
Lots of hot chocolate
Watch all kinds of Christmas movies
Make cookie plates for our neighbors
Do a random act of service for someone
Donate to Toys for Tots
Attend hubby's work Christmas party
Have loads of fun wrapping presents
Do a reunion roommate Christmas with some of my favorite ladies
Gingerbread house making
Present shopping (of course)
Read Luke II (the story of the birth of Christ) as a family
Find the perfect little nativity
Celebrate hubby's birthday on the 6th!

What are your plans for this holiday season? I think it's so fun to learn what other people's holiday traditions are so please comment and let me know what you'll be up to!

  3. I love Christmas decor! I was eyeing a mistletoe ball like that from Target the other day and plan to buy it this week. My husband thinks I'm crazy! ;) Sadly, our tree is still not up. Finals week and life has gotten in the way but I'm hoping to get it up today! :)
