Weekend Snippets {vol. 19}

Happy Monday lovelies!!  We are now officially less than one week away from Christmas!  To gear up for the big day, I'm going with a full Christmas theme for posts this week.  Hope you guys are in the mood for a little holiday cheer. :)

We spent most of Saturday moving or doing moving-related things (i.e. getting sucked into the time vortex otherwise known as Ikea then spending over four hours putting together the massive furniture we purchased).  We got our tree on Sunday and decorated it while listening to Elvis Christmas music and sipping on apple cider.  It was a perfect evening.  We're limited on space so we had to go with a smaller tree but I still love it.  It's cute and round and perfectly Christmas.


Our decorations are pretty simple but they're all meaningful to us in some way.  A lot of them are ornaments from They Boyfriend's childhood plus we have one his little cousin made for us and one from the kids I used to nanny.  We've also started a tradition of adding one ornament a year that is special to us.  Last year, the first year, we got ornaments with our initials.  This year, we picked something up in Disneyland when we went with the family.  I love everything about that tree but my favorite part of the photos of the tree is the lights.  Don't you just love how they twinkle?  Also, you can't really tell from the photos but that star on top is hot pink and sparkly.  And, yes, The Boyfriend was totally okay with a hot pink and sparkly star on his tree.  I love that guy.

So tell me, what did you do this weekend?

  8. I really like your tradition of adding one meaningful ornament a year. It makes decorating the tree each year that much more meaningful and special. It's a tree full of memories :)
