I've been so excited to get out our Christmas decorations, but I'm a firm believer that this shouldn't happen until after Thanksgiving. It was my mom's rule, and I guess it just kind of stuck. As eager as I get to pull out the garland and trim the tree, I think it's worth the wait. The excitement builds and it makes this time of year extra special. Don't you just love having something to look forward to? Over the past few days, I've been preoccupied with work, so I didn't give much thought to dusting off the holiday decor. However, once work was finished on Thursday and I realized that I wasn't scheduled today, I pulled out the Rubbermaid containers and went to town. I just couldn't take it anymore! After hours of moving around knick knacks and dusting furniture, Lil' Puna is officially bedecked with sparkly ornaments and felted pom-poms. I'm smitten! Unfortunately, blogging took a back seat. I just kind of threw this together; I'm sorry, friends! This past week the blog has felt more like a blah-g. I promise to bring it next week with a handful of gift guides and a holiday surprise. Stay tuned! Until then, enjoy your weekend. Let it be merry and bright—just like you! I think I'll eat some more Candy Cane Oreos and drink a few mugs of mulled cider. Cheers!
