Happy Monday everybody!  Hope everyone has an amazing holiday weekend!  I def ate WAY too much and even got most of my shopping done.  Any one else black friday it up? It was my first year doing it and it was actually kind of fun.  

The stockings are finally up at our casa.  So excited to have a mantle to hang them from this year!

I like to keep the decorations simple around our house.  I have this irrational fear of our house feeling cluttered.  (Not just when it comes to holiday decorations).

 Since I do not have a real tree I rely on this baby for that christmas tree smell.  Loving the way it smells!

 Our Starbucks tree is standing proud in our kitchen. Changed it up this year.  If you haven't heard the story behind this tree you can read it here. 

 My new little Lola ornament was a black friday steal.

The outdoors are on hold because we are having the house painted this weekend. Black friday at Home Depot was $5 real wreaths and $0.99 poinsettia's. Can't beat that!

Anyone scoring on some cyber monday deals today?  I have a few things left to buy and hoping to get them online.  Let me know if I'm missing any that I shouldn't be!

P.S. Giveaway winner will be announced later today!

  6. I got most of my Christmas shopping done on Friday too & it wasn't even that crazy shopping! :D I love your Starbucks tree and the story behind it - so sweet!

  7. Just caught up on your Starbucks tree story... love the history behind it. That's a lot of what this time of year is about for me... traditions (new and old) and taking time to stop and appreciate one another. Dragged my fella out for Black Friday. It's our tradition- cocktails and lunch then a little browsing. You either get a lot of shopping done this way or none at all:)

  8. Aww I love your Starbucks tree!! I love the story behind it. Super cute! :)

    I actually collect Starbucks ornaments too! But I don't really have a story.. I just love collecting them. haha.. every year I have to pickup at least one. We haven't gotten a tree yet so I have yet to decorate but that'll be like ours - a starbucks tree. :)

    Love your doggie ornament as well!
