We finally got a Christmas tree.
It was on the agenda but not at the forefront of the minds of the adults in this house. I suppose I was counting the fact that the mantle and the outside decorations were done, however the children were ready to stage a coup if we didn’t get a tree. So get a tree we did.
We got it from Kroger, got it home and in the stand before remembering that all of our Christmas decorations were thrown out with the trash when we moved.
Off to Target.
…for obvious reasons. I’m sure the newness will wear off eventually. Until then you will deal!!!!!
I have a confession.
Deep down inside I love crafting. I’m not very good at it but I would like to start trying. I’ve been perusing Hobby Lobby far too often, now that it is only a few minutes from my house. You can only go in there so many times without getting the feeling that you can actually make something.
I finally decided I would try my hand at something and decided to make a wreath for my front door to jump start my fall porch decorations.
I started off with a wreath that was $6.99 and a roll of burlap that was $4.99 both from Hobby Lobby. I also purchased this metal hanging sign from Kohl’s that was half off and ended up costing $9.99
Last week I confessed to being obsessed with my new mum. Within the past week I have started to see some growth and it has been pretty exciting. The day before yesterday I looked at the plant perched below the window on my sink and noticed that the leaves were drooping. I immediately felt the top layer of dirt and although it wasn’t parched I figured it might need some water so I poured some in and set out to do something else. Within about 20 minutes I looked at it again and noticed the leaves were back in an upright position.
I am so sad that I haven’t really been able to pick up my camera like I want to. Now that things are settling down I am thinking about doing a 31 day picture challenge just to get myself back in photo taking mode.
Here’s a few I’ve managed to snap in the last week:
The thirst is real
Football practice is in full swing around here. Prior to my husband being named the coach of my son’s team I spoke about being a hypocrite and making my son play football this year. So far he is really shining and is proving my theory right. His dad has been working with him non stop and it is showing. He actually looks forward to going to practice. I’m so proud of him.
I told y’all I knew what I was talking about….
Ayyyyeeee. Peep my little photo bomber!
