better last minute than never, right?

Christmas decorations

oh, Christmas treeampersand in the tree

We finally decorated the house last night. Well, we decorated the tree and the fireplace mantel. That was as far as we got. After getting things out of boxes I finally realized, as newlyweds, we don't have a lot of decorations. Looks like we will be hitting the sales right after Christmas and stocking up for next year. I'm thinking I need some red throw pillows to put out in the living room, just for Christmas. I love pops of red. It's like my new favorite thing.

And the bow on top of our tree, that's all husband's doing. His family owns a florist shop so he has become like an expert bow-maker. Not that he goes around bragging about it. He had to give me a lesson in bows last night. It's kind of bitter sweet that he's better at bows than me. I picked a keeper, girls.

(check. one more goal off the 12 by 2012 list!)


  1. That bow is the stuff. Someday when I have a house and Christmas tree Ryan can make me a bow.
