My living room right now:
Christmas seems to creep in earlier and earlier every year. A couple days before Halloween, I went to the dollar store to pick up a couple extra Halloween decorations and the seasonal section already switched over to Christmas stuff! I couldn't believe it. So this post may seem premature but I bet you can't tell me that you haven't watched a Christmas commercial or two or driven past a couple houses with their lights up!
Every year my first order of business is finding the perfect Christmas cards. I aim to send them out on December 1st which means that the search begins early November. This time I really wanted to order custom cards with our photo on them. I recruited my mom to take a couple of pictures of Mike and I last weekend and I chose a cute design from Vista Print. I got a notification that my customer photo cards have already shipped and I can't wait to see how they turn out! I will definitely share them closer to Christmas after all my family and friends get them in the mail.
I feel like I am the last blogger on the planet to not have a Christmas tree up. And while I am definitely feeling the Christmas spirit already (especially when I got to Target's holiday section!), I just can't bring myself to do it this early. It'll probably happen within the next couple of weeks but not quite yet. We bought a couple of stockings this year which will mark my first time ever having a stocking! My family didn't have the tradition of hanging them from the fireplace and stuffing them with deodorant or whatever goes in them. By the way, what goes in them? Mike and I are doing each other's and I have ZERO idea what to stick in there!
I have started thinking about what gifts to get others and thankfully I have a lot of time because the ideas aren't flowing! I'm looking forward to those gift guides!
Have you started preparing for the holidays? Is it still too early for you too? Do you do photo cards?
