it's beginning to look a lot like christmas

last night, we started decorating our place for christmas!
there's nothing (seriously, nothing) i love more than warming up cocoa, blasting holiday tunes, and stringing up christmas lights & garlands. 
christmas-1
christmas-2
christmas-6christmas-5christmas-4
we won't be here on christmas day, and we don't have tons of extra space…so we're back & forth on what we're going to do for our tree. we have a few ideas up our sleeves…you'll see, of course, what we decide on. ; )

HOORAY FOR CHRISTMAS!

also:
alterna-trees for folks (like us) low on space...
a great (free!) holiday mixtape…
i want this stocking so badly it hurts…
14 holiday hair tutorials on cup of jo. i'm trying them all.

  3. I love the little mushroom garlard, it is so sweet and whimsical!

    I get so excited to be able to listen to holiday music out loud and have it be socially acceptable...but I secretly start listening to it by myself in October!

  12. this is the first year we decided no on a tree. however, i couldn't do it.. instead i got a tiny 3 ft fake tree. it was so hard, but i am happy we have this instead of nothing. :) and i like those trees on a wall idea.... Pretty neat! And your mushroom garlands are super cute too!
