hello erin »

the most wonderful time of the year. . .

I’m FINALLY getting around to blogging our christmas tree. We’ve had it decorated for a while now, but it’s taken until now for me to feel SO utterly left out after EVERYONE else has blogged about their Christmas tree, to finally buckle down and show it off. Mike and I are OBSESSED with our tree this year, I’m pretty sure it’s because our ceilings are finally tall enough for a pretty, big, tall, gorgeous tree. Oh, and the fact that we’re just all tingly and happy with holiday spirit this year. It’s really nothing that special and amazing, but its OURS (which i’m pretty sure makes it special and amazing).

See our “V” tree topper? Ive been searching for a cute tree-topper for awhile now, and haven’t discovered anything I like. SO i took matters into my own hands, and custom glitterized a V.

I made the wreath for our front door this year too! I just spent lots of TV time wrapping yarn (the cat LOVED it). And this little ceramic tree. . . its my FAVORITE christmas decoration we have. My mom MADE it when she was in high school (yes MADE IT). she let me borrow it last year, and i’m happy to report i have zero intention of ever giving it back.


This is our table centerpiece for the holidays. It looks like the holidays threw up in tree and candle form.  but guess what. i LOVE it.


and here is the front of our house! mike REALLY wanted to to the second story roof line. . . but i told him i’m SO not prepared to be a single mom. So we nixed that idea right away (I did however let him line the balcony railing (we’re all about compromise over here). We got the old school big bulbs, and we’re pretty much obsessed with them, they’re just so traditional and pretty. Next year I fully intend on sassing it up a bit with big wreaths in the windows and some more door love, but for our first year in the house-its sheer perfection!

    Sara - 1. Your mom MADE THAT?! I love it!
    2. Your tree looks amazing. AMB worthy for sure.
    3. Why do you feel left out? I haven’t blogged a tree. I think you’re shaming me. We don’t even have a tree. Or decorations.
    4. I love Tucker and the Christmas lights. Hello nice long exposure.
