Happy Monday friends! I know the words HAPPY and MONDAY don't usually go together, but I hope you had a great weekend at least!
Ours was busy. We went out both Friday and Saturday to look for a new car. Can I just say now that I kind of dislike car shopping? I had no idea that I had NO idea what exactly I was looking for. I think we've settled on the idea of an SUV but our opinions differ a bit on makes/models. So, we didn't end up taking one home with us but I think it worked out for the better because....
Dustin got the job!!!! He went in for an interview last week and nailed it. He got hired into a manager position straight off the bat and is in charge of the whole online sales division for (get this)... an automotive dealership! I'm pretty sure it is fate how everything has been working out. So he starts Tuesday and then he can actually sell himself a car, earning commission, getting a better deal, and seeing the stock before it's even available to anyone. I'm kind of really excited and so proud of him!!!
Yesterday we went out shopping for work clothes for him. It was fun and I was able to get a bit of a shopping fix. I haven't been out shopping in a retail store in forever. It felt good!!!
We stopped by Canadian Tire and I trailed off into the holiday decor section. I was stopped dead in my tracks when I reached the Christmas tree decoration aisle. Completely, utterly, I'd-better-not-squeal-and-scare-other-customers smitten with the brand new Debbie Travis holiday decor line!!! My heart stopped when I turned to face the wall of shiny, beautiful things. The Heirloom collection was facing back at me and I just knew it right then and there that this was my holiday decor inspiration.
Can you say O.M.G.? Pastel pinks, corals, creams and golds! Cameos and antique keys!! I am in LOVE! Not to mention the most gorgeous Christmas tree bows I have ever seen, in a vintage style crochet lace!
Dustin literally had to pull me out of this section like a little child. I did manage to snag a couple of items during my exit though!
I grabbed a wreath, some of the most gorgeous little bows, some pink and cream flowers and a roll of ridiculously pretty ribbon! (Project: Most Beautiful Wreath Ever coming to a blog near you soon)!
Decorating a Christmas tree is one of the things I anticipate most about the holidays. Can I just start now? I mean, we haven't even thrown out our pumpkins yet but I'm soooo ready!
Debbie's holiday decor consists of a bunch of other collections as well.... all equally beautiful!!!!
Have you started thinking about your holiday decor yet, or am I just crazy!?
