Valentine’s Valentine

What I’m listening to: Momma Tried by Merle Haggard

Valentine’s Day is almost here and you know what that means. If you guessed the price of chocolate chips goes up 23 cents then you win a free box of chalky candy hearts. I personally want to know who is gifting their S.O. with chocolate chips. I can’t envision a scenario with that ending well. Even if you’re making them into cookies it’s still weird. Buy them something normal like those terrifying bears that sing 70’s songs while they “dance”, their dead eyes staring into your soul.
Anyways. I love all holidays, but I have a special place in my heart for Valentine’s Day.

Christmas 2014

What I’m Listening to: ‘Can You Love Me Again’ by John Newman

(Note: I know it’s 2015, but I’ve just now awoken from my sugar coma so hush.)
Another Christmas has come and gone, the gifts are strewn all over the house, there are probably chocolate coins in the carpet and the place smells suspiciously like Love’s Baby Soft. Hmmmm.

That aside, I figured I would share some photos of my Christmas. I’m not turning this into a haul post, because no one actually likes those. (To anyone angrily saying that they do right now, just remember, everyone knows you’re lying. (And you probably smell like Love’s Baby Soft.))

The first thing I want to show y’all is how I wrapped the presents this year. I used three different types of high gloss plaid wrapping paper, soft caramel colored satin bows and handmade brown paper tags. If you’re wondering how long it took me, let’s just say I may be a season further on Bewitched than I was before I started. Let’s also leave it at that.

Oh, right, I nearly forgot about the 11 feet of tree I coated in tinsel strand-by-strand. Pro tip: after 4 feet of covering a giant, dying plant in shiny Mylar threads, you will start to question your sanity. Ignore these thoughts, because if you even try to attempt this, it is far too late for you. Here’s the tree in all it’s glory:

Well, it’s been fun but I gotta go try to make some hot cocoa for my sugar hangover. “Hair of the dog” and all that.
Peace.

Christmas Tree Farm Fun

What I’m listening to: Jingle Bells by Bing Crosby

It’s that time of the year again, time for parties and laughter and advice columns overrun with tales of terrible in-laws. We’re a week from Christmas, so it was obviously time to go get a Christmas tree. (I’ll post photos of it decorated once it’s done.) Luckily we have high ceilings, because when we got there they were down to 10′ and over trees.

The good news is, we found a tree. There is no bad news because it’s Christmas, we found a tree, and it fits under our roof.
Happy Holidays! (The tree is tipping dangerously. I gotta go)

Montgomery and Monograms

First off, let me just say that it was a great weekend for football. Georgia beat Auburn, and WKU beat Army. It was also a great weekend for weather, with the Alabama sunshine deciding to take a break for a little while. (Yes, that means winter clothes in 70 degree weather, don’t judge me.) A quick rundown of my outfit: Sweater is from Victoria’s Secret, skirt is from Adrianna Papell, jacket is Pim + Larkin, heels are (surprise!) Lands’ End, and the adorable monogrammed scarf is Marley Lilly.
