I think our house is finally pretty much decorated and organized...except for the back guest bedroom and I'm not really happy with it...so that is still a work in progress. I decorated for Christmas on Saturday...better late than never. I'm taking the simplistic approach this year. Matt asked the other day, "why did you decorate the house if you are just going to take it all down to put up Christmas?"
Here's a few pics of the house before Christmas decorations :) I'll post Christmas pictures later in the week. Sooner than later hopefully!!
we now have new nightstands....picture coming soon.
love this Pottery Barn shelf in the bedroom!

the farmer's vanity
Well, that is it on the house for now! I still need to take pictures of the new nightstands and of the entertainment center and barrel chairs for the bedroom once I get them painted. Hopefully I'll get that done over Christmas break...after I meet our baby nephew in Dallas.
Moving right along...
I spent four days of Thanksgiving break in Texarkana. It was nice to be home :) The farmer had to work...he guides duck hunters in the winter...so it was just me and the parents. We spent Thanksgiving day just with family and I was completely blown away when my grandmother gave me my grandfather's American flag from his funeral for our housewarming gift. Needless to say I was bawling and squaling when she gave it to me. Now I just have to find the perfect place to hang it.
Friday was lunch with the fab five, minus one - Allison, Katie (and Erik), and Amy (and Scott)...Megan was there in spirit since she wasn't in town. We missed you! We had lunch downtown at Zapata's. Great food and lots of catching up with the girls. After lunch I got to see sweet pea. She was 2 weeks old last time I saw her so it was a treat to play with her :) Good Golly Miss Molly, you have gotten big!

happy baby :)
Later that afternoon Mom and I did some shopping and stopped by Target and who did we run into but Jill and Sophie! We were so excited to see them. Sophie was having a ball shopping and she was sure to let us know that she had come to Target to shop :) She's learning young!
I'm pretty sure if I don't get in bed my kids are going to be hating me tomorrow.
I'm so glad to be back at blogging!!!!!
And my graduate school semester is over as of tonight!!!!!!
Love, joy and happiness :)
