Garland Extravaganza!


I almost forgot about this!  Remember Nester–the blogger that I mentioned a few days ago?  Well she’s having a garland show and tell.  She shared how she put together a garland for her mantle and has invited others to link up their blog with photos of their garlands.  Thought I’d join in on the fun! 

My garland contains:

  • 2 long peices of el cheapo garland that I’ve had for 8 years now
  • 1 newer peice of garland that normally is hung over the doorway into the living room
  • 2 small peices of greenery with pinecones
  • silk poinsettias
  • sticks and pinecones


Please hold the applause.  LOL!  Aaron was pretty impressed.  I really like it!  I’m so glad we found this old “fake” mantle peice.  It’s nice having a place to hang the girls’ stockings!  Looking at this photo makes me realize how badly we need to get curtains up!

She bangs, she bangs, oh baby . . .

I did something today that I haven’t done since 1990.  I got bangs.  


That’s me on the left.  Hee hee . . . just kidding!  Do y’all think that is for real?  Did this dear lady really walk around with her hair like that?  That is insane!  I had some killer bangs in 7th-9th grade but I could never get them up that high.  Now my friend Malicia (yeah, that’s her real name) was known in 9th grade for having the highest bangs in the school. 

I’ve always been one to try new things with my hair.  It’s been blonde (my natural, born-with color!), red, brown and all places in between.  It’s been really short (almost pixie-ish), it’s been long (I cut 9 inches off last year), and now I have that “trendy” cut that Rhianna and Posh Spice made famous–long in the front and short in the back (would that make it a reverse mullet?!). 

So today I decided to have my sylist cut my bangs.  She wanted to do it last time and I wasn’t brave enough but today I went for it.  I like it so far but we’ll see what tomorrow is like when I have to style it myself!  Whaddya think?!  Forgive the tired eyes in this one.  It’s been a long day and I’ve been running on 4 hours of sleep last night! 


Converted to black and white because don’t we all look better in black and white?!  : ) 

Madalyn just opened 2 of Annagrace’s Christmas presents.  Let’s just say she is in BIG trouble right now!  Gotta go . . !
