It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!

This past Saturday I decorated the house for the holidays. Here is our tree. And yes, I even wrapped some presents to put under the tree. Some of them are for Kevin's birthday. He turns 26 on Wednesday!

This is the right side of our entertainment center...

and this is the left.

Here is what it looks like all together.

Here is the back door. I thought this thing was so cute! It makes me smile everytime I walk in:)

This is the buffet station in the dining room.

Here is the kitchen sink window.

This is one side of the mantle over the fireplace...

and this is the other with our stockings. I got the stockings from World Market last year. Everything else came from Hobby Lobby or Target They both have the best deals going on! This year I decided to fill everything with the red berries. I thought about doing the snow but it would have been such a mess to clean up. I thought the berries turned out very festive and a lot cleaner.

I will post a picture of our front door wreath soon. For some reason, I didn't take any pictures of that. Oh well! I hope everyone has fun decorating for the holidays. There is nothing better than lighting up your christmas tree, cozying up in a blanket and watching your favorite holiday movie with a christmas sented candle burning. The holiday season is officially here!!!

Like I said in my previous post, we have been to 3 weddings in 2 weeks! This is from my brother-in-law's (Kevin's brother) wedding. Their wedding was at The Nunnlea House in Louisville followed by a dinner there as well. It was very intimate with their closest family and friends. Here is my new sister-in-law Aly and my new neice Chloe. Chloe has a birthday coming up on Thanksgiving day! We are going to see the new Twilight movie to celebrate. I can't wait, even if it is with a bunch of pre-teens!

This is Jessica and Ben Tracy. I worked with Jessica at JAMfest. She is still with the company and they have the cutest little girl Taryn. Their wedding was at the Frazier Arms Museum in downtown Louisville. Everything was so fallish. It was beautiful. I loved getting to see my old coworkers. We always have a blast when we're together.
This is Katie and Chad Pfeifer. I was sorority sister's with Katie and I was Chad's fraternity's sweetheart. Their wedding was in Evansville, IN. Her flowers were amazing and had leaves mixed in with them. They had a patio connected to the reception where they had cigars and smores. What a great idea! On a side note, Katie had no idea where they were going on their honeymoon until she got to the airport this morning. I can't believe he kept it a secret that long.

We are so excited for all of our newleywed friends. We can't wait to share all the memories to come.


Sorry for my absence. We have been to 3 weddings in 2 weeks! I will post about that later. For halloween, we decided to head to the UK game. We didn't get a chance to dress up, so all the stress of figuring out a costume was pointless. While I didn't take any pictures of myself on halloween, I did get a couple of my neice, Karley! Isn't she the cutest Minnie Mouse EVER?
