Happy New Years Eve!

I can not believe it is almost 2011! It feels like it has been the quickest year! It was a great year...We had our first wedding anniversary, we ran our first half marathon and we made lots of new wonderful friends! For 2011 i would like to continue my running and maybe do another big race & be as healthy as possible! In 2011 we already have 4 weddings to go to which is pretty exciting! I think 2011 will be a great year!

I hope yall all have a wonderful new years eve with friends and family! Celebrate 2010 and welcome in 2011!

Also we have been really busy with family & friends for the Christmas season, but we had a wonderful time & our first White Christmas in Charlotte!

Just a few more days!

Just two days til Christmas Eve now and i can't believe it! I am just doing all the last minute things to get ready now! It is very exciting to me though because i love this time of year. I just finished wrapping gifts tonight and now i have them loaded in laundry baskets so that i can bring them to my parents house since that is where we will be celebrating. I thought i would share a few pictures with you of my gift wrapping! I loved how they turned out this year! My inspiration was from Becky at Sweet Tea and Pearls. I had so much fun doing all the monograms! I love monograms so much :) I hope y'all are close to finishing up wrapping too if you're not already done!

Christmas Decor

I love decorating for Christmas! I wish i could leave up all the decorations year round, because i always feel like my house is at its best during the holidays! I thought i would share a few of my favorite Christmas touches through out my house. Since sharing them all would be too many pictures! :)

 My little tree for the window, the large one would be way to big for this spot! Plus this one has presents under it :)

 I wish i could drink out of these glasses year long!

 I am really loving gingerbread men/ladies these days, they are so cute!

 Love my Christmas Tree linen towel!

 Merry Christmas Y'all!!!!

Christmas Wreaths

I always love to look around for inspiration when it comes to Christmas wreaths! They are one of my favorite things for the holidays! I love to have a few, so the more idea's the merrier! I have a really good time making bows out of different ribbons to put on lots of things! I am always changing my colors and the things i want on my wreaths it seems! It is so fun to get creative though! 
I found lots of inspiration in my most recent Southern Living Magazine and thought i would share! They have so many unique idea's!

What do you like to do to your wreaths?
