Decorating for Christmas

I’m (already?) getting excited for Christmas. I’m pretty sure I have never been this in the Christmas spirit. I think it’s partially because it’s my first Christmas living with Jordan…and I can’t wait to decorate our house. I already started and I plan to do more over Thanksgiving weekend!
It was a rainy weekend so I took the little Christmas decorations that we have out of the garage, lit some candles, put the She & Him Holiday playlist on Pandora, and started decorating. It was sort of like heaven to my newly Christmas adoring self. Did I mention I was also baking cookies simultaneously? 
We’ve also started a Christmas decoration DIY project or two. And I’ve been trying to incorporate things I already have into holiday-related decor. I found this wooden box at the thrift store a few months ago so I added some pine cones and ornaments to create a festive centerpiece.
And of course Penny girl had to get festive too. These antlers lasted on her head for all of 1.5 seconds.
Have you started decorating yet? I’m hoping I’m not the only person who started before Thanksgiving!

    I have started :-) It’s too hard not to! I hate the whole rule about no decorating before Thanksgiving! Who cares 😉 Have a great holiday!

    This is fantastic! You were a very productive lady this past weekend. I love that wooden box that you found. I’m planning on decorating this weekend. My music of choice is usually Bing Crosby, or a mix tape (CD) of Christmas music that I love.

    I LOVE Bing Crosby! Have you seen White Christmas? It’s one of my favorite Christmas movies. I’ve seen it SOOO many times!

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one with the Christmas fever already! The boyfriend thought I was nuts what I told him I already started my shopping haha

    I pulled out the decorations last night! I have two fur babies so I put my tree up outside on the patio {covered} so I can see it through the window and no fur babies will knock it over or electrocute themselves on Christmas lights :)

    I love decorating for Christmas :) I’m planning on getting my (small) tree up this coming weekend. Penny looked really cute with those antlers on! :)

    You are absolutely NOT the only one who started decorating before Christmas! :) I’ve been anxious to get started since Halloween! Doing a little something every day.

    Penny is so cute!!! And we haven’t started decorating yet, only because I haven’t cleaned yet, woop! >.> I’m so glad you’re enjoying Christmas, it’s my favorite holiday after Halloween!!!

    Also, that gorgeous box you found with pinecones and ornaments – seriously – is GORGEOUS.
