It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The temperature is finally dropping, Starbucks is serving holiday coffees and I have been shopping like a crazy person! It must be getting close to Christmas!! (although, the shopping like a crazy person has been known to happen when it wasn't Christmas) I love Christmas because I like to drive by and look at Christmas lights or snuggle up and watch a Christmas movie. Also, Christmas is just a great time of year! A lot of happy memories I have center around the holidays and I am always so excited to get together with family and friends for celebrations. Another thing I love about Christmas is dragging out all the decorations and making my house feel more like a home. The house just feels cozier when the Christmas decorations are out! I would have put them up in early November, but Billy would not allow it! Without further ado... here are some shots of the indoor decor!

This is our main tree that is in our living room. Our tree doesn't have a theme because when I was growing up our trees were always full of hand made ornaments and other sentimental ones we gathered over the years. I do think themed trees are beautiful, but for my tree I stuck with what I know!
Most of our ornaments were given to us, or we bought them for each other. The white and red one was made by my grandmother.

And of course we'd have Superman flying around on our tree!

Our second tree is in the dining room. I wanted a tree that could be seen from outside, so that is how it ended up in there! It has red lights and poinsettias instead of ornaments. Possibly that was too much red, but when I bought the stuff the day after Christmas last year it sounded like a good idea. I'm not so sure that I like it, but it's staying for now! It also needs something on top. I think a star would look weird... maybe a huge poinsettia?! haha

I have to say, the big tree that is in the living room is a dream to put up. It is 3 pieces, pre-lit... pure joy! The tree in the dining room, I found out this year, is one where you put each branch in individually. WHAT?! I did not know they still made these! It was not fun. If you don't already have a tree that puts itself up, I highly recommend purchasing one. The day after Christmas, of course!


  1. I love your trees! We only have one...but I plan on getting a second (Ryan doesnt know this yet) when they go on sale after Christmas. I was at a Christmas store and they had a neat tops on many of their trees. The best way I can think to describe them were trigs (ha! I know that doesnt sound cute!) but they were sparkly and red/gold/silver and they were going in different directions...kinds shooting out of the top of the tree. There was also a big bow on top. I LOVED it and am planning it to it to one or ours next year. :)

  2. Found your blog through Kelly's... LOVE the polka dot ornaments! That is my theme for this Christmas!

    Just wanted to stop by and say hi from a fellow Kentuckian! (we are in Lexington.. :))
