Seeing as how it's been the last few weeks of school lately, the house has completely gone to pots. I don't even remember the last time I've had a few seconds that I could clean.. it is nasty. But luckily, Cody needed the computer to finish a HUGE paper for his classes last night, meaning I had to take a break and do something else. I FINALLY cleaned the front two rooms, and my GOODNESS! I should have taken a before and after.. Except I would have been really embarrassed and I might not have put it up anyways. But it looks so much better! (Don't ask about the kitchen.. we currently have no clean silverware, plates, bowls, and I think we have 2 clean cups? So that's fun.)
This is our first Christmas together being married! And we have hardly any decorations, but I've gotten creative, and.. gone shopping a little bit.. because I NEEDED to have my house feel Christmasy. I decided to only decorate one room of the house, in order to save myself from spending all of the money in our bank account. My first item of business was to switch the pictures/sayings that were hanging up all over my house. I found some awesome Christmas themed ones online, printed them out and up they are! Such a big difference they made right away!
|We found those little stockings on sale at.. I don't remember where. The temple was a wedding gift, and the Santa is Cody's! Trina, Cody's Mom painted one for all of her kids!!|
One of the biggest things I decided that needed to be done was to move the couches into opposite rooms. We've had the blue couches in the first room you see when you walk in, and the red couches in the craft room, but since I decided to have the first room be the Christmas room, red couches needed to move! Anyways, I guess I don't need to give a play-by-play of how I decorated my house.. So here are just more pictures.
