I hope you’ve had a good week so far! I’m sharing a fun sale that just lasts through today (but it’s a good one!) and a little life photo dump. Ok.. sale first! Wayfair has a huge sale going on for one more day and there are so many great deals! Lots of my personal favorites like the fields of gold print above are marked down.
Also my favorite red plaid rug that comes in so many sizes and this cedar garland that is over my door in this pic. Both are so good! Long time favorites and I’m using them both again this year. This porch is from 2 years ago. Last year I didn’t use my red plaid rug on my porch and I missed it! I pulled it back out today and am very excited to get working on my Christmas porch for this year. Enjoying the bats just a little bit longer. :)
My beloved flocked pine tree that I always put in my master bedroom is also on sale! Such a good price – it comes in 3 sizes and is so beautiful in person.
So are the large holiday ornaments I used to decorate it! They come in lots of colors and sell out every year. Below are more favorites on sale! I ordered this faux cedar wreath which I really don’t need with all the wreaths I’ve got going on at my house at the moment, but the price was too good to pass it up (and it looks beautiful!). Plus I have a fun idea for it.. stay tuned! My house is a hot mess right now. Christmas decorating is just messy isn’t it!? It will definitely feel good to have everything mostly decorated and the mess cleaned up! I say mostly because I’m usually decorating and “tweaking” things right up until Christmas Eve. Ha. I have a feeling some of you do the same. :)
These are all beautiful garland options and such a good deal today!
Sharing a few pics on my phone I never got around to sharing last month! I mentioned a few posts back that I had been on a fun girls trip. Just a quick overnight at the hotel Del with a few friends. We loaded our bags and hit the road with our Diet Cokes! Always. :)
Stunning right!? We live so close and this trip was such a good reminder to get out and enjoy our surroundings more. Sometimes we think we have to travel far to get away but often a trip in your own city feels like a major break. If you’ve never been to Hotel Del Coronado add it to your bucket list the next time you are in San Diego! It’s a beautiful place to visit year round and the city itself is so much fun.
We were unloading our stuff and the guy at the hotel helping asked “where are you all from and how long are you staying?” Um.. 15 minutes away and one night. He kept pulling bags out and was looking at us like we were crazy. Ha ha. Mostly my fault I’m sure. I’m the worst over packer EVER! I like options when I travel. :)
We just enjoyed the pretty beach, went on a walk, did a little shopping and hung out! So relaxing and nice to take a break from our usual day to day.
We also ate. A lot. So many good restaurants in Coronado!
The homes are absolutely stunning too. That’s my favorite thing to do when I visit Coronado.. just drive or walk around and check out all of the beautiful homes! I took about 30 pics of charming houses.. couldn’t help myself.
So fun. I highly recommend mini trips like this with girlfriends! If you haven’t done something similar in a while it’s time! I’m so grateful for friends who just plan things like this and are persistent and make it happen. It’s never easy to get away but always worth it!
We came back on a Friday afternoon and Katy and I went straight to an Angels game our husband’s had planned. We were so tired from staying up late on our trip and felt like zombies but the boys were excited so we tried to regroup and keep the party going! Ha.
These two were living their best lives with the seats and little snack room we had.
So were these two! Our friends had these amazing seats and it definitely made the game exciting. We were chatting with the players while they were warming up!
It almost made me a baseball fan. ;)
Good times. I love recording the good stuff. Life is full of hard and difficult things too, but recording the good times and remembering them brings happiness, right!?
I’ve also heard that experts say people who decorate for Christmas early are happier people. (Seriously.. look it up!)
I mean.. just sayin.. ;)
So this is your invitation to go on a quick trip with friends, record the good stuff happening in your life and set up your Christmas tree!
You deserve it.
