Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend.


overdosing on sugar | holiday necessities | goodies at William Ashley
piles of wreaths | our condo-sized tree (we named him Desmond)

As you can see, we’re pretty serious about Christmas around here. The weekend was spent almost entirely preparing for the upcoming festivities and I couldn’t be happier. How was yours?!

      I remember travelling to Florida one year for Christmas when I was little and I was absolutely miserable because it was so hot! I swear it’s the only time I’ll ever crave the snow :) Come December 26th though I’ll be totally jealous of you!

    I love to prepare Christmas, and especially to go & buy the Xmas tree!!! Yours seems to be nice!

      Picking up the tree is my favourite tradition! I now get to do it three times: for myself, for my mom and for my dad. Love it!

    I love that you named your tree. Not only that, but you named him Desmond. So. Awesome.

      haha thanks Ella. I actually can’t take credit for the name. I insist on naming inanimate objects but Justin is a genius when it comes to the actual name. It’s a serious skill

    I’m a total “thing” namer too, although I have never named my x-mas tree. Be sure to know a new tradition will be starting this year at our house – in your honour!

      LOVE hearing that! I totally name inanimate objects regularly. Apparently it’s an actual thing. It has a medical diagnosis and everything haha

    I absolutely love this time of year! Unfortunately we didn’t accomplish any holiday decorating when I was home for Thanksgiving Break. I did however enjoy multiple cups of peppermint hot cocoa which it looks like you did as well!

    Eyes bugging out. Is that the Williams & Sonoma Peppermint Hot Chocolate? My absolute favorite. Soooo decadent.

      good eye! It is. It’s my favourite too. Worth the exorbitant price methinks :)

    I picked up my apartment sized tree this weekend and named him Fred (obviously, the tree is a gentleman). Gorgeous pictures, as always!

      Fred is a perfectly fitting name for a gentleman-like tree! Good call

    Is that William Sonoma hot chocolate? They cannot make a bad version of anything. I love all their products.

    Looks like a wonderful weekend! It doesn’t get much better than peppermint and pine trees…particularly this time of year!
