Can't Wait!

Hi, I'm Holly, and I'm addicted to Pinterest..I'm dying to decorate for Christmas!  We kinda skipped fall/Halloween since we had people looking at our house.  I had all the tubs out with decor...but then I got a call, and it seemed wrong to leave those dusty things all stacked up everywhere.  So..we piled them right inside the attic door (like 2" inside!), then locked the door.  And, what do you know?  They wanted to see inside the attic the next time they came.  People are intrigued by a locked door!

They probably thought we were non-celebrating people.  Like lazy or anti-Halloween.  But we are all Martha Stewart-wannabe-decorate-it-if-it-doesn't-walk (with red, lights, burlap, glass balls, whatever!)

I'm also shopped out after Black Friday and Cyber Monday (But I got some stupendous good deals!  Seriously, the entire Tommy Hilfiger store was 50% off, and I got an extra 25% off shopping before 10am.  See?  Good.)  (Also?  Carter's entire store was 50% off, and I got extra 20% off with my coupon.)  (So, when you see my kids wearing these brands every day, look away and pretend you aren't the one person who reads this.) ; )  ha!

So, how shall we decorate?  Same as always? Mix it up this year with new stuff?  Whew.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Baby steps, friends.  I have a BABY!!  Who is very nearly crawling.  You can come hold him so he doesn't grab all the tree lights. ; )

And meet my husband, Ches, who refuses to come to AA.  He's currently addicted to baseball cards.  And can't admit it yet.  He is now shopping Dave and Adam's and Blowout Cards' hourly sales, and promises to sell some of his current cards.  But. . . (crickets chirping..) . . . none sold yet.  He has relics (fabric/bat knobs), autographs, printing plate, etc.  And we need a new storage facility for them.

Ok, I'm one to talk.  I have stores of stamps, scrapbook stuff, fabric, ribbon, embroidery thread, magazines...and I really like shoes. ; )  Excuse me whilst I go pluck the log out of my eye.

Hope you have a h-e-a-l-t-h-y addiction.  Stay away from Pinterest(and its recipes and homes and organization and clothes and crafts and decorating and arty quotes. . )

Hugs and Happy Holly-days! 







“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?  You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to  remove the speck from your brother’s eye.  Matthew 7:5  (this?  is me!)

Jen, I love you! You are so good to keep up! : )
Isn't it FUN, but a total time waster!! Unless you are learning how to make some amazing dessert...like Almond Joy bars! Delish!
I know how you feel. I saw an AWESOME Sarah 101 on a boy's room, and I want to redo Clay's room. It's still dinosaurs, and he's ready to grow up a little. ; )
Hugs!!
