Holiday Cheer

Stockings are hung, shopping is done, gifts are wrapped.... well, not really. I haven't really started wrapping anything yet.  But I think I am still pretty ahead of the game!  I am running to Michael's today to pick up some last minute decorations and saw these beautiful pictures.  Thought I would share :)

Some DIY projects:

Now, I just need a baby... or just baby feet!

Love these cupcakes.  And so easy!

And some not so DIY-friendly projects :)

Pottery Barn Star Mirrors can be used any time of year.

And now, for my own little Christmas tree and holiday cheer. Happy holidays all!

If you can't tell from the picture, she was not amused.

75% there

As you may have noticed, I've been MIA lately.  We became homeowners and then went on vacation a week later (not really planned well!).  Then when we came back, it was time to unpack, paint, order new furniture, hang frames, and so on and so on and so on.  And I emphasize 'so on'!  It's been a lot of work over the past 4 weeks so blogging has fallen by the wayside.  But I happy to report that we are about 75% of the way there.  Yahoo!  I will be posting pictures soon.

Still on the list is a dining room table (which we have ordered but has not yet arrived), office desk and chair, rugs and a vanity for the bedroom (still debating this).  My main focus at this moment (and I mean today since apparently I have developed ADD) is getting a rug for the main living/dining area and a runner.  Here are some of the ones I have been eying.

This one is my favorite but it's almost $500 for 5'x8'.  Eek!
Much less expensive but not as colorful.
This one is a little too light, but still could work.
The Target rug is the most affordable, but I am not sure how I feel about it.  It's pretty busy.  I did buy the doormat version of this rug this weekend, and while it's a different pattern, it has the same coloring, so I will see if I want to take the plunge and buy the Big Guy.

Holiday Attire

So many holiday parties, no few outfits!  I have 2 parties this week/weekend, and I still don't know what to wear.  Well, I do know what I want to wear, but I don't think I can afford it all! A girl can dream.
