Okay, I know that Thanksgiving hasn't even happened and trust me, I love Thanksgiving especially this year! I just have Christmas, decorations and shopping for gifts on my mind. I have a good reason though. JP and I are starting our 3 day trek from Pittsburgh to Houston on December 20th. That leaves 11 days of December and a few days of January that our Christmas decorations won't be out this year.We're also spending Thanksgiving and the entire week after in Texas. We wouldn't get to decorate our home until December 5th if we waited until after Thanksgiving leaving only 15 days of Christmas in the Gougler household. 15 days is not enough for me. I would rather too much than not enough! That being said I'm also gone next week in Texas, so Sunday evening while JP was off in Vegas, I busted out the Christmas bin :) I'm waiting until I get back from Texas (the first time) to put up the tree and our stockings. I did get our hall table and some other spaces in the living room all done up and it makes me smile.
Here are a few of my favorite Pinterest decorations. I'm hoping to use a few of these to help finish up my decorating!
JP and I are also throwing a Christmas/Going Away party a little over a week before we move for all of our friends up in Pittsburgh. I LOVE throwing parties and I'm looking forward to cooking and everything else that goes into party planning. Here are some of my Christmas food inspired pins!
And of course you can't have a party without drinks!
Okay that's all I have for now. I'll finish up decorating my mantle and a few other things then I'll take pictures of my home to show everyone! I hope that everyone has a wonderful Tuesday! Anyone else gettting preped for Christmas a little early this year?
Until next time...
With love and God bless,
