Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend.

{aka the place where hot chocolate lives}{a wee patch of snow that got me more excited than I care to admit}{cutting down our own tree}{christmas!}{lil sis & mugs of hot chocolate}

I’m lucky enough to be with a guy who’s as enthusiastic about Christmas as I am. His biggest worry is that it won’t stop raining and by the time it gets cold enough for snow, the clouds will be out of moisture. I agree with him wholeheartedly. This is a legitimate concern.

That said, we really went big this weekend. I’m talking Christmas everywhere. From the Distillery District Christmas market (where we purchased our very first ornament together. I know. Aww!) to cutting down our very own tree and hauling it home, and decorating not one but two of them, all while ingesting far too many cups of overly sweet hot chocolate; I’m convinced we could be the best Christmas elves in existence. We would easily give Buddy a run for his money – and I say that with confidence.

Our halls are decked. Our tree is lit. Our mugs are prepared. We are ready.

A forewarning: be prepared to get all sorts of festive up in here over the next few weeks.

    Love it! It’s rare to find a guy who has Christmas spirit! Lucky for me, I snagged one as well! I love a guy who is manly enough to decorate a tree whilst sipping cocoa and watching Elf. :)

    That IS a legitimate concern! I have quite the opposite problem – that Christmas Day isn’t going to dawn and sunny and brilliant as the weather is here at the moment… I’m worried we’ll get our quota of sunshine before the big day!
