I have a monster list of posts to write, including a list of special series to start or bring back (like Sunday Spotlights and Picture of the Week). J and I celebrated our one year anniversary Sunday and I could kick myself over the fact that I haven't even shared the wedding I was so proud of yet. There's a birth story to share (which is easier said than done) and a reveal of Mr. Renner's room. I also just shared with you that we moved (again) and we've already completed some things around the house, but there are so many more things to do. I want to share all of it.
Christmas is in just a few days and while the decorations have been up since Halloween, I didn't do as much as I'd hoped or even decorated as much as I normally do. I had a list of projects I wanted to complete (including some handmade Christmas gifts) that simply didn't get done. My sister thinks I could totally include IOU's in Renner's birth announcement and people would understand. In fact, I did so little for Christmas, I can include three pics in this post that sum up all the decorating I did (you'll also understand why I didn't join any holiday house tour blog parties!).
I hadn't even put a tree skirt down.
I took this at night while holding the babe just to say I have a pic of our first Christmas mantel.
The only reason the outside of our house is done? One word: HUSBAND.
I hope you've only done as much as you wanted to for the holidays and that you're not kicking yourself if something didn't get done. Today we're taking our 5 week old to visit Santa and hopefully do our Christmas shopping. I've never waited this long to start - and finish - my shopping. Wish us luck!
