Show Me Your Decorations

We live in a city-sized condo, so there isn’t much room for a lot of decorations. Plus we are back and forth a lot between Thanksgiving and New Year so it doesn’t seem worth it to decorate like crazy until we are close to our parents and have a bigger place.

Here are a few pictures of our stockings.

They are actually hanging on our china cabinet since that’s the best place to be seen. We used to have a fake tree but it got gross when our garage flooded.

How do you decorate your place?

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 16

I have seen this song challenge on many other blogs or facebook and twitter. The idea is to share a tiny bit of yourself by choosing a song. The idea is to choose a song every day, but for the purpose of the blog I am going to choose once a week.

The sixteenth day is a song that you used to love but now hate.

I don’t usually hate songs, but I have to stop listening once they get tons of airplay on the radio.

For example,

What song do you hate that you used to love?

Show Me Your Christmas List

I am super late to this, obviously, but I wanted to link in my list anyway. I think this type of stuff is fun.

We all know that Christmas isn’t about getting presents, but it’s a little fun seeing what others want, and showing what you want too.

My favorite part of Christmas morning is opening my stocking, and seeing everyone else open their gifts, especially if it wasn’t something they were expecting.

With that said, here are a few things I am wanting this year!

Kindle

I read so much, but my book collection is taking up way to much space in our condo. Plus a kindle would be way easier to throw in my bag, then to remember where I put that book down…

Birchbox Subscription

I love trying new makeup/lotion products. This is the perfect way to do that.

Birthstone Cuff

Or any jewelry really. I love this idea of a bracelet with B’s birthstone, which is Nick’s as well.

New Bakeware

Everyone knows I love to cook,and my pans have seen better days, I would love new pans.

Items that hold me accountable

I asked for gift cards but I really want Kettle bells and work out equipment & gear that is more luxurious and comfortable. For example, lulu lemon gear.

I need to get my body in shape. I have been keeping up with my running, but having this gear and adding strength training to my workouts will make a huge difference.

The standards

The things I always ask for, gift cards. To stores like: Sephora, Gap, Macy’s, Amazon, etc…

What do you hope to see under the tree this year?

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 15

I have seen this song challenge on many other blogs or facebook and twitter. The idea is to share a tiny bit of yourself by choosing a song. The idea is to choose a song every day, but for the purpose of the blog I am going to choose once a week.

The fifteenth day is a song that describes you.

I’m not sure I can think of a song, that really describes me…

if you’ve got one let me know.

Instead, I’ll share one of my favorite holiday songs.

What song describes you?
