This weekend my husband and I ran some errands and it hit me that the holiday shopping madness is already here. If you've read this blog long enough you know that I love holidays. I love the festive decorations, dressing up, seeing family, all of that jazz. But there are a few things that drive me up the wall... including the fact that one day into November the lines at Target were already 6 people deep.
I swear I thought they were giving something away and I was missing out. Has everyone started their Christmas shopping already? All I wanted was some damn face cream and toilet paper.
My second gripe is that stores open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving day. Does anyone else think that is totally ridiculous? I think its so sad that employees can't enjoy their holiday.
Finally, this is the season where I eat massive amounts of food that aren't even proportional to my body size. I'm not sure how all of the turkey, carbs, and pumpkin pie fits but I generally make sure I gain a solid 5 pounds every year and that's before Christmas cookies.
That being said, I'm so glad the holiday season is here and can't wait to deck out our house in Christmas colors and lights Clark Griswold-style. Until then, I updated some of our fall decor and I'm really looking forward to getting cozy with the hubs and Ruby by the fire with some hot chocolate and/or wine.

You know I love laurels, so I had to implement them in my Thanksgiving chalkboard design! Our felt foliage garland also made a comeback and I'm loving how it looks doubled up with my West Elm garland!
