Feelin the Cheer

I love the holidays. A lot. Like times a million as my roomie Elaina would say. Everyone seems so cheery and festive. Well, almost everyone. I love buying presents for people. It makes me really happy to give something that I know they will like/use/see/hang on the wall/show other people/whatever they do with it.
Now, there are a few people that are hard to buy for. Like take my cousin Zach for example. He’s a neat fella. Very creative and artsy and techy. Which makes him hard to buy for because a) electronics/tech gifts are way expensive to get a cool one b) He is very tall so buying shirts long enough for his monkey arms is hard. But every year I try, and I hope I succeed.

Now, my sister in law is about the easiest person ever to buy for. She always ends up having several things at the end of a shopping trip that my mom and I venture out on. And my nieces seriously rake in the presents this time of year. I have to limit myself to one toy/present each or I will get out of hand. But I secretly and not-so-secretly give them presents all throughout the year so I make up for it.

Now, on to decorations. I love them. The more, the better. However, I do not feel that the color blue has any place in Christmas decorating. It’s just weird looking. But I love my Christmas tree. It’s modeled after my momma’s and it is red and silver. That’s it. No other color. Just simple and classy. Kinda like me (haha!)

So since I am feeling the holiday cheer, I encourage everyone to grab a mug of something warm (and you can spike it if you would like) and cozy up with something (dog, boy, girl, blanket, book, you get the point).

  1. Your tree is BEAUTIFUL! Simple, festive, elegant. Good advice above... I'm now going to go cozy up with the hubby on the couch to watch The Office.
