PYP has Permanent Vinyl!!

Hurry on over to Pick Your Plum today. They have 4 rolls of 8x24inch permanent vinyl for $4.

I think all of our mixing bowls should say this. So cute!!

This stuff is made to get wet!  Here are some of the specs:
Waterproof, Gloss finish, Very Sticky Permanent Solvent, Indoor durability 10 years+, Outdoor durability 6 years+.

In 4 awesome colors:
  • Clean White

This would be great for all those New Years projects to better organize your home. I'm going to need a LOT of vinyl!!!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas!!!! I wanted to share our Christmas tree on this wonderful day. I'm exhausted and currently in the comatose state that usually follows a busy day. Now we just get to lay around and enjoy our time with the furbabies.

I love Christmas decorations, especially the ones that I pick out myself. It's that inner control freak thing :) The theme for my plethora of Christmas decor this year is different hues of blue and silver and white. Had I finished all my decorations, our house would have been a winterblue wonderland. I'm easily distracted though and Jared and I exchanged gifts WAY early so I've been playing with the Cricut ever since. Sadly, my decorations took a backseat to all the fun presents I've been making with my new toy.

I took all the pictures below with my new iPhone that I have been coveting for the longest time. I did manage to make some cute glitter ornaments and bought some from WalMart for the cheap and no onw would ever know they were from Wally World. Well, of course until now. Please ignore the clutter around our poor fake tree. Our house just isn't big enough for all our stuff.

Geaux Saints!!!

Bellingrath Gardens

For those of you who have never heard of Bellingrath, it's fabulous. It is a huge wonderland of Christmas lights during the holidays. The hubs proposed last year on December 16th at the Gardens so we've started a tradition of recreating the whole night. I will go ahead and warn you: If you're not into Christmas lights and tons of pictures please turn back now. I get a little cheesy around this time of year and I love Christmas lights (especially with the Hubby) so I took a ton of pictures. 

Jared got down on one knee right in front of these deer. I remember thinking that Jared would like this section (because he hunts..never shot anything in the 4 plus years we've been together though so I don't mind it lol) right before he grabbed my arm and proposed.

It takes Jared 30 minutes to take a picture, hence the impatient look I've got going here.

This is one of my favorite parts. The "underwater" lights.

Hope everyone's ready for the holidays! They'll be here in a couple of days. So excited :0)

My Christmas Wrap

I love wrapping presents for some reason. It has nothing to do with the actual presents, I just like the methodical taping and folding. I've been super busy pinning cute wrapping ideas on Pinterest over the last month because it's all in the details. I bought this awesome personalized ribbon below from Pick Your Plum. I'm telling you, you've got to sign up for PYP's daily deals. They are awesome!! I have ordered a ton of things (flower cabochons, ribbon, ric rac, magnetic recipe holders, feathers, and the list goes on) from their site and have yet to be disappointed.

These are gifts for my friends, most of which came to my bachelorette party, so I've included a small wallet-sized pic from that night. It's all in the details ;)

So uhh...I didn't realize that ALL of my polyvore activity was being linked up to my blog. Big Oops. I've deleted them and hopefully will be able to figure out how to stop that from happeneing again. I've been taking a break from my Etsy shop and the blog so I can make all my Christmas gifts and get the decorations finished. I put just a little too much on my plate this year. Next year, I will be organized! Don't I say that every year? And every year it's a big FAIL. But I can I promise to post some of my holiday crafts real soon. I've been a busy busy girl!

Hope everyone is having an awesome season! It's currently 70 degrees here in humid Mobile. Doesn't feel like Christmas outside but I'm still oh so excited about the holidays and VACAY!!! Yay :)

See you real soon!

a little bit of leopard

I'm a little obsessed with Polyvore now. It's another way for me to get that creativity fix for the day. I want to incorporate a little more fashion and shopping into my life and this blog. Definitely the shopping :0) I've been pinning cute outfit ideas on Pinterest for a while now and they seem to mostly be coming from polyvore. Why not join in the fun! Hope you enjoy seeing some of my sets.
