Christmas Time is HERE!!!

Is that Charlie Brown song stuck in your head? OMG! I can't believe it's been well over 2 1/2 months since my last post! I promise to do better in 2010. In fact, I'm getting a snazzy new blog layout to go along with my committment to "blog more!"

I LOVE this time of year! Yesterday, I checked my mail, and had 7 Christmas cards!! It was so awesome getting to see my friends' families, and to see the creativity of the cards. Now only if I can get mine in the mail...they're coming people...hang in there!

For the sake of truly getting in the spirit, I'm posting the decorations I've put up around my apartment. I'm so proud of everything that I found. Can you guess where the majority of my decorations came from? Yep! Hobby Lobby! Southern Living is a close second!

So, without further adieu, here's my Christmas 2009 Tour:

Here are some of my favorite ornaments:

Here are a few pics from the Junior League Holiday Market Committee Christmas Party:

What are your Christmas plans for this year? My Mom and I are flying to Mississippi to be with her family. I honestly can't wait. I love my cousins to death, and I'm already planning the activities for us to keep ourselves busy. Not to mention, I haven't seen Karmen since August, and she's talking so much more now! Taboo, talent show, shopping, and just sitting around reminiscing. It's one of my most favorite times of the year.

Let's not forget about the food. I gained 3 pounds over Thanksgiving, have been working my butt off to lose those pounds, and a few more, only to have a reserve for the damage Christmas is sure to bring. When you get my Mom, my grandmother, and my Aunt Mickey under one roof cooking together....oh.my.goodness! Don't worry though...I'm packing my work-out clothes, and Mom and I are already planning to run the neighborhood MANY times!

I'll be back with more pics and stories as the rest of this Holiday season unfolds. Until then...later gators!

Glad to see you back. Your Christmas decorations look nice and festive. Hope you have a nice Christmas holiday, and don't gain any extra weight. At least you were brave enough to step on a scale after Thanksgiving. I didn't want to know what the damage was.
