All pictures below were taking last year, Christmas 2012.
I definitely don’t feel that Thanksgiving gets it just reward. It’s like the poor step child –Cinderella if you will — before she gets all pretty and finds Prince Charming. I enjoy Thanksgiving. I really do.
But there is something so magical about Christmas and the music and the decor everywhere…it’s insane. Maybe it’s because stores started decorating right after Halloween. And I mean like that night, they got their stuff out of the boxes and put everything up. I’m looking at you Macy’s.
It could also be because a ton of bloggers are decorating early. And I get it. I want to as well. But I am firm believer that I won’t decorate for Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving. And it’s true. I won’t. It has sort of become a tradition around these parts. I usually take Black Friday off so that I can go score some deals at Target. Yes, I am that crazy person.
Jeremy would be at work and I would turn on the music and get busy. And when he came home, the house would be decorated. It has become a lovely tradition. This year, he has Black Friday off, so we get to decorate together! Woo hoo!
Anyways, to all the bloggers out there who have decorated already and shared your pictures — you are making it VERY difficult for people like me to wait. I want to decorate so badly, but I know that I just can’t do it until after Thanksgiving. Poor Turkey Day! It gets shafted every year.
Please say “Hi” to Mary at Little Bit of Class Little Bit of Sass!
All joking aside, Mary is planning her wedding and getting married in April! I remember when we were both engaged in 2012 and thinking 2014 was so far away….and look-a-here. It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s almost Christmas which means it’s almost time to ring in 2014 and BAM. It will be wedding day before we know it.
I personally love her blog because it is a little bit of everything all mixed in to one. And it’s not just wedding posts. She recently posted this post about her Halloween costume. I mean, come on! Genius! I laughed out loud when I saw this image. So smart!
Why else do you need to be friends with Mary? Because she is awesome and one of my favorite bloggers. So go check her out!
