Chris and I put up our Christmas tree yesterday! I said I wasn't going to put one up this year, but I went ahead and did it anyway! We are always so far away from home on the holidays that all I really want is for the holidays to just pass by without a sitch, but I wanted something different to look at in the living room. We even put up lights in the front yard! I love it! I wish we could have gotten lights up to the very top of the house, but we don't have a ladder, but it still looks lovely!

I love the colors on my Christmas tree, I am in looooooooove with them! I made a wreath to hang on my door that matches the tree! I bought the wreath at hobby lobby for half off and bought some decorations for it! I made the wreath so that the decorations weren't permanent so next year if I want to change the colors I can easily take those off and replace them!

The lighting is pretty bad in my house, and its raining outside so the pics are pretty dark! But you can still see the colors.....they're luscious (in my opinion! Lol!)

Here's my wreath! I think it came out great! Chris likes it, but he thinks its really girly!

We had Thanksgiving dinner at our friends house. I made my Nana's yummy recipe for stuffing! Last year I worked, so it was nice to have dinner....I stuffed myself of course and then had to keep myself from going into a food coma afterwards!
Yesterday, we ran a few errands out in the choas that is Black Friday! We donated some old clothes to goodwill, paid our rent and went to Lowe's and Home Depot. The streets were crazy busy and there were cops everywhere! We weren't shopping for gifts so we weren't stressed out in the traffic, we just wanted to buy some lights to put up outside.
Chris and I aren't good at making our gifts surprises, we always know what we are getting eachother and this year is no different. He is getting a flat screen from Tiger Direct, which should be here next week and I am getting a laptop from dell. Although, I did buy a few more gifts for him that hopefully he won't find out about! So thats all for now, I'll be back with a few more pics later!

Hey girl! Sorry it took me so long to respond, but I just got internet back after over three weeks! I am totally at war with our cable co!!! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I, too, ate too much. (as always) I wasn't brave enough to venture out on Black Friday, but I did have the weekend off and that was so awesome!
