Decorating for Christmas

Sleeping Puppy Not Included
Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. I love giving presents more than receiving them, and I LOOOOVE decorating. Since there are only 2 of us, I never feel the urge to go TOO far (I totes could go overboard though) because we don't need much.
Doggy Stocking not up yet. But they do exist heheheh
My intention was to buy my stockings from this store on Etsy that made them out of Burlap (super cute, but also super expensive), but I waited too long and it would have been over $100. $100 bucks for stockings? Thehubs isn't going for that lol. So I picked these up from Big Lots. Another big thing that got in the way of the budget was the fact that we lost all of our Christmas decorations in the move. And by "lost" I mean, "I have absolutely no idea what happened to them or if I even packed them". I definitely got rid of the lights because they were Uk spec outlets, but everything else should have made it. Needless to say, I was very upset. Which is why the decorating on a budget. We had to basically start over.


I bought the cute gift boxes from big lots, but I decided to use them stacked by the fire place. Next to the big 2 wic candle I bought from Walmart. I bought the vase from Hobby Lobby and it was on sale for $.90. Can you believe it? Fake fall flowers came from there as well.

Ok, I told you we lost our decorations right? Don't judge me for the Super Mario flowers as a tree topper. I got those flowers from my boo for Valentines Day this year and I love them. Don't pretend you don't know how much of a geek I am. Super Mario flowers instead of real ones? Oh yea. Anyway, the tree is just weird this year in general. I put leopard flowers on it, some big blue flowers. It's just a hodge podge of what I could find at Walmart, TJ maxx, and Big lots.

As a side note, I wrote this post 2 days ago and then I got sick. I was home sick yesterday. A hot mess. And I slept most of the day. At one point I woke up to this sight above :) No wonder I couldn't move my legs.

What's your favorite Christmas Decoration?
(For me, its the stockings!)
