In true MN fashion, winter just decided that it was here and all of the sudden our forecast looks like this…
And while those lows that dip below -20 are quite chilly, I really don’t even care! I’m ready for winter to bring it on. Maybe it is the warm fireplace we have to look forward to after a cold drive home, maybe it is just really early in winter and my internal solar batteries are still charged; whatever the case, I am not bothered by this huge cold front we’re stuck in.
We got some snow earlier this week and everything outside looks beautiful and white. We had some wind and an almost blizzard and I was loving every minute of it! (except for the drive to/from work) Maybe this winter is going to be an awesome one for me. I’m holding onto hope that this positive attitude keeps me going as the cold winter days continue!
Bundle up out there ya’ll – don’t want anybody losing their fingers or toes!
Well I have officially decorated my first tree this year! And I am so in the holiday spirit – ready to do my house up all pretty and cute!
We sponsored a tree at work and they asked me to decorate it again this year. So with the help of the other designer and our intern, we tackled that tree and it turned out quite wonderfully!
So here is our progression of decorating!
The ribbon we got this year was gorgeous! I picked some up for my tree last year and am thinking I need more!
I put the topper together from a few different sprays and am so happy with how it turned out! It is dangerous that we decorate the work tree with our logo colors because it makes me want to go buy a bunch of new stuff for my tree at home since it is the same colors!
Putting some of the last balls and sprays on – getting full and gorgeous!
Just a few last tweaks to it and we were all set!
So now where to put our tree at home this year…am thinking about getting a real one for upstairs and then putting the white one in the basement. We’ll see! Can’t wait to start getting everything out though!!!
Now I know that Halloween was last week, but I didn’t get around to posting pics of our costumes this year! Here is my team – we went with the all encompassing theme of “trick-or-treaters.”
L to R: Photoshop Wizard, Amelia Earhardt, peacock, Jacques Cousteau, cat
Photoshop wizard was SUCH a genius costume – loved it so much! I was jealous I didn’t come up with it!
I didn’t have a real solid plan until 2 night before Halloween. I walked past the closet and saw wetsuits hanging up. Thought I could do something with it, decided to be Jacques Cousteau! It was really funny at work – only 4 people guessed who I was and most of the other people didn’t know who Jacques was even after I told them that’s who I was dressed up as!
Hope everybody had a wonderful Halloween and is starting to get over the sugar comas now! :)
Happy Wedding Day sister #3!!!
You are so amazing I almost don’t hate mornings.
