Hello friends! I’m back! I took the weekend off to enjoy time with John, enjoy decorating for Christmas, and just enjoy time unplugged for awhile. I noticed several bloggers around our little universe did the same thing this weekend, and I hope all of them feel just as recharged and ready to go as I do today!
As I told you guys on Friday, the weekend was largely devoted to all things Christmas. We made a quick trip to Ft. Smith Saturday morning to stock up on extra Christmas lights, and John got them all on the house yesterday. I’m always in charge of the inside of the house, and I got all of my decorations put out and the trees put up. This year we got a much needed new tree, but, because I am the crazy Christmas person that I am, I wanted to put up the old tree in another part of the house instead of getting rid of it. John was super excited about this plan . Both trees are up, but we had a little situation and most of my ornaments are being held hostage in a storage building right now. I should be getting them out today, and I will definitely be showing you all the finished result this week! In the mean time, here’s a peek at some of the Christmas cheer in the Ford household.
My mother-in-law bought me these Christmas dishes last year, and I love them. I think they make the table look so festive. We probably won’t use them at all, but they sure make the table look lovely!
It’s time, once again, for Friend Makin’ Monday (<–didn’t I just do last week’s post??). Kenlee, our wonderful host, is also getting into the Christmas spirit with her theme this week. No questions to answer. This week we’re simply doing a wish list. Here’s a list of items that I’m hoping Santa delivers for me this year!
The North Face Reaxion Long-Sleeved T-Shirt
I already have this in three colors, and I want the rest of the collection!
North Face TKA 100 Texture Masonic Hoodie
Again, I already have this in several colors. Hey, once I find something I like I stick with it!
North Face Freedom LRBC Pants
We have a ski trip planned in a few months, and I am in desperate need of new pants!
North Face RIKIE Jacket
Isn’t this pretty?
North Face Windwall Vest
I’m sure you’re noticing a trend. I think I’ve already mentioned that I have a huge thing for North Face. Seriously, it’s a wee bit ridiculous.
John pointed out this book the other day, and I’m dying to read it!
Little Women T-Shirt
Are you guys familiar with Out of Print? It’s an awesome website that has T-shirts that feature book covers from classic books. I’ve bought several, and this is one of the newest ones they’ve come out with. I’ve loved Little Women for as long as I can remember so I want this one badly!
This last one is just for fun. We are considering adding to our family, but I don’t really expect this Christmas morning.
How cute is this little guy?!
Those are some of the things on my wish list this year. As you can see, I have a bit of a one track mind. Outdoor clothes (preferably North Face!) all the way!
What’s in your letter to Santa?
