Silver Lining: homemade holidays

December 4, 2011

homemade holidays

True story: we went to Walmart at midnight last night to get lights for our tree {we have a tree! thanks grandpa and grandma!}. Let me tell you, Walmart at midnight is one classy affair.

Now, we've been to our early-morning meeting, and then back to bed for a nap, which is the only sensible thing to do on a fast sunday.

I should be thinking about finals and other blah things, but instead, I'm listening to this song on repeat, and dreaming of all the homemade projects I might actually have time to do this break.

homemade wreaths

burlap stockings

 ornaments for the tree

and presents wrapped like this

Only two more weeks, and then it can be my birthday, and christmas, and no school, and spending time with family, and sledding, and everything wonderful.
