What is it about long weekends that makes Mondays suck even more? I should feel extra rested and accomplished, but no, I wake up and all I can think is “Ugh! Why can’t I have just one more day!?” First world problems, right? This weekend ended up being incredibly productive for me. I cleaned house, did laundry, started my holiday shopping, and even got some gifts wrapped; imagine what I could have done with an extra day.
The only thing I didn’t manage was pulling out our Christmas decorations. I had every intention, but you see, the boxes live in the garage, which has spiders, so I make Andy pull out the boxes and de-spider them every year before bringing them into the house. And while I did mention it once, I used up a lot of wife points making him help me shop and clean so I felt like nagging him about the one thing he didn’t do was petty and not at all something to do to the person currently buying my Christmas presents. However, while I didn’t get any actual decorating accomplished, I did manage to put together this wish list of things I’d love to add to my holiday decor collection.
- Metal Floral Wreath – Free People
- Vined Monogram Ornament – Anthropologie
- Glitter Leaf Garland – West Elm
- Copper Star Light Strand – Urban Outfitters
- Magic Mantle – Terrain
- Firefly Cloche Light – World Market
- Glitter Butterfly Clips – West Elm
- Champagne Star Ornament – Pier One
- Faceted Mirror Tree – Pottery Barn
I am curious; how do you guys decorate for the holidays? New stuff every year? Older stuff that has been passed down? A bit of both? I am currently rocking a mixture of the two, but I could see going completely one way or the other?
