Outdoor Christmas Lights
- Published on Wednesday, 12 December 2012
This is a true story of a blogger that posts pictures of her home on the interwebs.
My Chiro: “Ms. Michelle. I love your Christmas lights. Now tell me about your secret internet life.”
Me: “Uhh.” *stutters* *embarrassed because a real life person has discovered my blog*
So, my “secret” blog is get...
Insert Clever Christmas Tree Title
- Published on Tuesday, 11 December 2012
Warning: This post has focus issues. And proper grammar and spelling issues. I thought about re-writing it but I like sleep. So I decided to warn you instead. Good luck.
Did you know that decorating the Christmas tree is one of my least favorite holiday activities? The lugging out all of the ornaments,...

Holiday Console Table
- Published on Wednesday, 05 December 2012
The mantel was my first holiday decorating victim. Our console table was next.
I went with a woodsy/red/black theme. And snowflakes. Snowflakes are like the winter version of owls for me. Obsessed. The crate in the center was a Salvation Army find and it will hold all of this year’s holiday c...
Deck the Mantel- 2012 Edition
- Published on Tuesday, 04 December 2012
‘Tis the season to decorate all surfaces of your house. Fa la la la la, la la la la.

I usually use a berry wreath for our holiday decorating. The berries usually shed all over the floor and it just didn’t seem to go with my glittery gold motif I have going on this y...
