Getting ready for christmas

img_0824It’s happening! I officially started decorating the house for Christmas. I wasn’t quite sure if it was okay to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving, and since we’re having guests over at our house this year I had a little sit down with Edward’s mom to figure out this big question of mine. And I got my answer. The one I was hoping! So today I hung up the Christmas wreath on our front door. That’ll bring our neighbors joy too, I put up all the Christmas candles I’ve been collecting (I bought the nicest Nest candle at a sample sale last week, and I must admit I also went a little crazy in Target’s Christmas section.. Wups!), and then I set up the mini Christmas tree in the hallway. I also brought our the Christmas box (which was buried deep down in the closet), but it mostly has ornaments for the tree, so I might have to go shopping a little bit (too bad!! hehe). I definitely wouldn’t mind adding the below to my collection:

CHRISTMAS IS MOVING IN

I?ve spent all weekend getting ready for December decorating the house, treating myself a festive manicure, and watching non-stop Christmas movies on Lifetime. Sunday I went shopping for a few festive bits to complete the decorations, and fell in love with this Christmas-y teaware from Grace’s Teaware. I seriously debated whether or not to buy them (after all I’ll probably only use them in December), but my “hygge”-gene won in this case, and therefore you can find me drinking my morning coffee/evening tea from these cuties.

Anybody want to come over for coffee/tea/hot cocoa/you name it?
