Better Late Than Never

Garrett and I finally put up our tree last weekend.

I don't know what took us so long to get around to doing it, but afterwards I didn't want to put up the rest of our decorations. As a matter of fact, everything but the tree and ornaments went back into their boxes and out into storage.We will be home in Texas for almost a week so it didn't seem worth it to me.

And I am ok with that.
I think that the thought of having our tree light up the living room was good enough for me. Not to mention that now we don't have to undecorate the whole apartment once Christmas is over.

Try not to laugh too hard at these self taken pictures : ) 





We bought that cat Santa hat last year at Target for $5. It might be the best $5 we ever spent.

I hope your Wednesday's are great! 



  1. Your tree is beautiful!! I'm glad you decided to put it up. And I love the cat hat...hahaha. Def worth the five bucks!!

  2. We didn't decorate the house either. The tree is really enough for me and I don't feel like I want anything else. Your tree is pretty!! I'm not sure why but it seems to be so much effort to get the tree up and decorated.

  3. The Santa hat on your tree is such a cute idea!

  4. Your tree is so beautiful!! I love it!! Glad that you put the tree up!

    And your cats!! I just want to snuggle with them! The Santa hat is so darn cute!! I think my car needs one :)

  5. Your pictures are great - don't be so hard on yourself!

    I'm stoked to see that you have TWO cats and that your husband is holding one- I don't think I could ever convince mine to hold our cat!

    Following you from Lauren and Lauren's recommendation - don't disappoint me ... ;) haha jk! Hope you'll follow me back!

  6. New follower here! Love your kitties, and that you took a holiday photo with them. Adorbs!

  7. My cat has that same hat. Although he hates it, but lets face it it's just too cute right? I love the picture of you two with the cats. Do your cats like to play with the ornaments too? Mine always knocks them down so the bottom third of my tree is undecorated :) Merry Christmas!

  8. Uh man, I hear ya. I was all bahumbug about putting up decorations this year too. I am just... exhausted. The last thing I wanted to do was decorate. But, I did it. Not as fun & creative as I could have but eh, it will do. Lately, I'd rather sit on the couch with my husband than blog, craft, read... anything. I don't know what's gotten into me!

  9. Such a pretty and bright tree!! Ahh, I love self photos - and of course LOVE the photo with you, Garrett and the kitties!! Adorable!! I lol at the Santa hat and beard!! We had that exact one a few years ago! I hope you and Garrett have a wonderful and memorable time with your family this Christmas!! Sending love!! Xoxox
