Hooray for the Holidays!

I can't believe we're already less than a week away from Thanksgiving! Tis the Season, but I've been so busy with work, Thanksgiving totally snuck up on me. Ahhhh!

Though it's been incredibly busy lately, I have been taking some time every day to clear and clean up some areas of our apartment to make room for our Christmas tree! Melvin and I brought the tree in from storage this weekend. It's a beautiful 7.5' Vermont White Spruce from Balsam Hill that I bought last year.

Now, I know some of you are probably reading this thinking "It's not even Thanksgiving yet!" But hey, the Christmas decorations and overall holiday spirit are part of what makes these couple of months so magical for me. So, to each his own.

I've started to receive the holiday decorations I ordered from Balsam Hill with my gift certificate, and let me tell you... It ALREADY feels like Christmas getting all these packages. Haha.

I've already opened up some of the boxes in an effort to start decorating and finding places for everything. I've set up the tree, and my sister did the tree fluffing/shaping this year. Now all that's left is decorating the tree and the rest of the house! Wheeee!!!

I'm hoping that we'll be done decorating by Wednesday night. Melvin's mom will be coming over then to help us prep our Thanksgiving meal, so I'm excited for her to see it too!

Man, I love the holidays.

Live on the Bright Side,



We have a Winner!
