Sorry for my absence!

Hey sweet blog friends!
  I am so sorry that I haven't been able to post each day.  Life has gotten a little busy which makes it hard to blog.  Here is a little update of our life.  We decorated our Christmas tree :)  It took us a whole 3 days to actually have the time once December hit to get it put together and decorated.  Life just kept getting in the way.
Before we started decorating we went to starbucks to get our Christmas in a cup.  I like to make everything an experience so this MADE our decorating experience.  It was so fun!

Yes you did read Put Together.  We are actual fans of fake trees because of the money that we save each year!  Ours is pretty tall and full, so we like that.  One day we'll buy real ones, but for now the fake works just fine.  We get the Christmas tree scent from candles...which we also LOVE!!! 

I hung the stockings.  We bought them our first year of marriage from Pottery Barn.  Surprise, surprise, they are ticking stripe :)  Mine has my name monogrammed on and so does MR.P.  I haven't bought any stocking hangers yet, but I think putting nails underneath the mantle works out great for us.  I think it would look a little cluttered if we had anything else. 

This is how tall MR.P is :)

Actually we've lived in apartment every year until now.  We are just excited that our tree can stand tall without touching the ceiling!! 

MR.P and I think this is all our tree needs.  jk...GO DAWGS!!  This ribbon I got from Hobby Lobby our first Christmas.  We'll retire it one year, but until then, I get A LOT of use out of it.  I'll post a few pictures of the entire house decorated later.  Until then,  I am going to try and catch up on everyone's beautiful projects and such!

Hey Beth!

Love your ticking stripe stockings. I remember seeing those in the catalog and loving them.
I also love your ribbon on your tree!

I hope you are having a good day!!

They have hooks you can screw in instead of nails. They can be decorative, plus they will support more weight. Quite handy if Mr. P gets a heavy power tool in his stocking!
