The Holidays & an Update

Mini update:

I'm only 4 days in to my new lifestyle and I have lost 3.2 lbs. The weekends are especially hard. I find myself surrounded by tailgating food and large family dinners. I still have my eye on the prize and am hoping to hold out to really splurge on food until Thanksgiving. When I planned out my weight loss goals, I gave myself some wiggle room for the Holiday's. 

Speaking of Holiday's! I have already pulled out my VHS of Home Alone. I normally wait until around Thanksgiving to watch it, but I just couldn't help myself. It brings back a lot of good memories and gets me in the Holiday spirit:) I completely skipped the fall/halloween decorating this year. I do have a fall scented candle that sometimes makes me feel like my house is fall-y, but in reality I know it isn't. I love fall, but have my sites set on winter and CHRISTMAS:) I know it is early, but here are some of my favorite decorating ideas...

Centsational girl really has me wishing for a fireplace!

I think these would look lovely on my buffet. I would go for more muted colors, silvers & golds. Love the look!

I wish I had a space to do this. I'll think of something:)

How cute and simple are these? I am trying to convince myself that putting one on each doorknob in our house wouldn't annoy me. 

And in case I don't get around to actually decorating for the holidays, which is a definite possibility, I might have to settle for the smell of the holidays with this wonderful stove top potpourri.

Have a great weekend:)


  1. You didn;t decorate for fall?! It's okay, I did enough for the both of us :) I'm going to be taking it all down this weekend to transition into winter.

  2. I have enjoyed reading your articles. It is well written. It looks like you spend a large amount of time and effort in writing the blog. I am appreciating your effort.


I always love to hear from you:)
