Christmas Wish List

Dear Santa,

If you twisted my arm, I guess these are a few of the things I would put on my Christmas list.  And I figured maybe a few other people would want to throw these on their list as well.  Some of these are probably on the high end of your budget, Santa, but it was fun to dream.   I couldn’t put together a list without adding a gold, animal object because that would just be crazy.  I have been decently nice this year.  Of course there’s always room for improvement but that’s what 2014 is for.  Merry Christmas!

xoxo, Laura

‘Tis The Season

In keeping with yesterday’s Christmas theme, I thought I would roundup some of my favorite ornaments this year.   I usually try to collect a few new ornaments throughout the year from the places we visit, but I always end up buying a few this time of year too (obviously I need a few dog ornaments in honor of Abe).  How do you decorate your tree?  I know some people like to have a theme – ours is always just an explosion of random ornaments and tree lights.  I would love to hear about your Christmas Tree traditions!


It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it twice – I love the holidays!  There are so many great decorations out there – it has me begging for more surface space in my apartment.  Above are some of my picks from my favorite shops.  Not shown above is this star that I spotted on vmac & cheese.  It’s from anthropologie and can’t be purchased online.  I picked one up when I was out a couple weeks ago and can’t wait to put it on top of my tree.

Plan is to get our Christmas tree tonight – no big deal that it’s supposed to snow/rain all day.  Follow on Instagram for a picture later tonight!
