deck the halls

Random fact on this lovely Friday: somebody found my blog by searching the phrase “chia seed in my eye.”

I kinda like that, lol:)  Not going to find any advice here, though!

I mentioned the other day that Jon and I decorated for Christmas on Sunday.  I love decorating for Christmas!  Last year during this time I hadn’t even started ChiaSeedMe yet.  I was kind of in a transition between blogs.  I had been writing at Brand New Sidewalk about random life happenings for about a year, but with the craziness also known as my first year of teaching, I just didn’t have the time or energy to put into it!

So, I started a tumbler, thinking it would be a good way to keep blogging, but with shorter, less-time consuming entries.  I really liked tumbler, and sometimes I think I’d like to keep blogging there (in addition to CSM), but so far it hasn’t happened.  My tumbler was geared a little more toward healthy living, but I really made the jump when I started ChiaSeedMe.

So in the spirit of decorating for Christmas here are some of last year’s decorations.

And this year.

Oops!  That’s not a decoration.  That would be my breakfast.  A random juicing of carrots, apple, a lime, small piece of ginger and a few handfuls of spinach (aka – everything that I could scavenge from my oh so empty fridge).  Plus half a leftover Cliff bar.

Let’s try this again.

And of course Christmas at our house wouldn’t be the same if it weren’t for my Grandpa’s peanut brittle.  He spends hours making it every year, and it’s the best peanut brittle there ever was.

The husband and I will be spending the whole weekend Christmas shopping!  I’m so excited.

What are you most excited about this weekend?

Happy Friday!

  1. I love the Christmas season! We are supposed to get our tree tomorrow – yippee! And then our friends are hosting a ‘Friendsgiving’…which is just like it sounds: Thanksgiving Dinner with Friends. :)

    Happy weekend!

    Your house looks amazingly festive and full of Christmas cheer. I love your eclectic collection of ornaments.

    I’m excited to do nothing but hang out at home the next 2 nights and cook, watch movies, etc in preparation for race day! I also have a friend’s baby shower tomorrow so I’m excited about that. :)

    I just found your comment – somehow you had ended up in my spam folder:(

    Hope you had a great weekend and were able to get your cooking done. I think it would be hard for me to cook if I worked on the weekends too…I can barely fit it in without working!

    Thanks for the sweet comment:)

  7. Amazing photos. I got into the Christmas spirit yesterday too and put up our tree. Decided to keep the rest of the holiday decorating to a minimum this year, but I love, love, love your style.

  8. The “chia seed in my eye” search is too funny, haha.

    Beautiful decorating! So far we have up some lighted garland, and that’s all. We did buy our tree tonight and will bring it in later this week.

    I love all of your decorations! Were working on adding decorations to our stash, but it seems like a slow process to accumulate all of the goods!

    It is such a slow process – and can be kind of expensive! We are trying to focus on just adding one or two new decorations each year, and I feel like it is already starting to add up a little bit. Unfortunately it’s still kind of sparse…especially in areas other than our living room:)
