Happy Monday morning to you all!
Although I’m sad that Thanksgiving is behind us, I am happy to be back into my normal routine of things. I definitely crave routine and structure during my days and weeks and it feels so good to be back on.
This morning was filled with Christmas and holiday cheer in the Conrad house. I started my morning with black coffee and a slice of pumpkin bread. So good. After checking out some Cyber Monday deals (did you order anything online today?) Keith and I made breakfast and then got ready for work. We are currently still obsessed with Michael Buble’s new Christmas album and listened to that while waking up. While I got ready for work, I turned on Mariah Carey’s Christmas album and jammed to that while the dog danced along with me!
On my agenda for today is work, doing a little grocery shopping, laundry and starting my clean at home for when my Dad arrives into town on Wednesday. I’d also like to squeeze in some prenatal yoga this afternoon as well as walk the dog.
So, like many of you, over the Thanksgiving holiday, we started decorating our house for Christmas. We are almost totally done except we still need to decorate two mini trees in our entryway and buy two wreaths for above our fireplace and outside our front door. Then we will be officially done.
But before that happens, I wanted to share with you all what we’ve done so far!
Our first baby’s stocking
Mantel in our bedroom
Kitchen table center piece
Cork collection…should I be embarrassed by this?
Kitchen buffet…I still need to find the littlest snowman’s top hat and glue in back on. I know I saved it, I just can’t remember where I stuck it!
Christmas countdown number one from the General Store
Family room. Don’t you love how cozy decorations make your home feel?
And some cute Quincy pictures as well…
On Black Friday, we went to Best Buy and finally bought a new camera after almost two months without one. We got a DSLR Cannon Rebel and I’m in love with it so far. We also snagged an extra lens and I can’t wait to continue learning more about it. I’m such a dork, I played around with it so much on Friday, my left wrist and right forearm were sore on Saturday! Geesh!
We went back to Best Buy on Saturday to buy a couple more goodies we needed. I think we are now set for electronics in our house for a while. Fingers crossed.
I’ll be back later with an update of my Monday!
