Here are a couple pictures of the plants we planted yesterday:
I can already hear the groans that are about to occur when I mention what we did today:
We started prepping for post-Halloween holiday decorating. (November is just one week away, folks!) I pulled out the bins with holiday curtains, linens, and pillows we will swap out for the current year-round ones, so we can get them all dry cleaned. Then we reconfigured the furniture to make room for the main tree. It was the first time we converted the Lovesac furniture we bought earlier in the year, and it was a piece of cake. Now, instead of a sofa and love seat, we have a sofa with lounges on either end, which allowed us to move the two small recliner arm chairs from in front of the living room window to the space where our loveseat used to be. I love how it looks and may not go back to the original configuration after the holidays. And we now have a clear space in front of the living room window for the main tree.
We also ordered a few supplemental holiday items:
Gift bows, 2 white fuzzy throws to match our holiday pillows and coffee table runner, gold magnetic tiebacks to use with the white holiday curtains, a holiday giraffe shower curtain for the giraffe bathroom upstairs, and another pre-lit 7″ pencil tree that we need for our slightly reconfigured holiday decorating floor plan. I want to have everything we need to hit the ground running when we start decorating the first week of November. (We don’t do Thanksgiving at home anymore, so there’s no reason to wait until after Turkey day to get started.)
I’m excited to have gotten the ball rolling. Now, to get this house cleaned top to bottom and corner to corner before Operation: Xmas Vomit begins.
