I hope you had a glorious Thanksgiving and perhaps got a head start on your holiday shopping. Please remind me to never, ever set foot in Target (or any other store for that matter) on Brown Thursday again. I should know better.
But, despite the insanity in the stores, I'm excited to gussy up my home for Christmas. I have a lot of holiday decor that I've acquired over the years, but am still trying to find my style for decorating this house. This is our third year here, and I am feeling the urge to change my color palette a bit. With the aqua and blue hues throughout much of our home, I feel like I need to go with something a little out of the red and green norm - even though I love those holiday colors.
After all, how can you resist? What colors are you going to use to decorate your home for the holidays?
I also get the Distracted Dummy Award of the Year after my... mishap yesterday. I was running around, multi-tasking, and sat down in the basement, all ready to try to use my "Light Keeper Pro", since none of my lighted garland works. NONE of it. My son was playing video games and made a comment, "Do you hear that water?" Yes, I did. I go to look in the storage area off of my office only to find water leaking everywhere.
So, I start yelling for my husband and rush upstairs to find the water source. Um, yeah, it was the sink in my laundry room. You know, the one where I put my daughter's pants to soak them before I washed them and neglected to turn off the faucet. Yeah, that one.
The good news is that we caught it and were able to clean up the mess without any serious damage done. A bunch of my scrapbooking supplies in my office closet were soaked, but thankfully all of my scrapbooks are dry. And it didn't come close to my new hardwood floors.
Have you ever had a disaster as the result of distraction? Back to the subject at hand - how are you planning to decorate your home for the holidays this year?
