It’s official, we can all start decorating for the holidays!!! I love this time of the year. Not only is it my birthday month, but there is a holiday to celebrate every month until the end of the year!!! I LOVE IT!
I enjoy how a holiday just screams (pun intended) for get-togethers. One of my best friends, let’s call her Elizabeth* loves the holidays as well – she and I have already scheduled our annual trip to the pumpkin patch! As the holidays draw near, I have a feeling you will be hearing about Elizabeth much more ;-). Anyhoo, two fun things about this time of the year are the decorating possibilities and that Pottery Barn catalogs become my real-life Pinterest homepage. Since this weekend kicks of Birthday Month/Halloween/BEST TIME OF THE YEAR I went to Pinterest and my PB catalogs for inspiration – what do you think of my mantel!?!
Inspired by a PB decoration, I Photoshopped my nephew into a WANTED poster and replaced his photo on the mantle with it…it is kind of cute if I don’t say so myself ;-). As I was decorating away, a huge smile came across my face when Carrie sent me the following photo text message:
“Started to decorate this weekend”
IT MUST BE A FAMILY THING, ha! HAPPY DECORATING EVERYONE!!!
*Elizabeth was my dear friend’s Confirmation name. She would have legally added it to her name when she was married but did you know that if you are changing your name beyond a last name due to marriage it costs hundreds of dollars?! I guess Chad Ocho Cinco now Chad Johnson really does make enough money that he can just change his name whenever he wants. 😉
