Home Sweet Home

The holiday has officially begun for me. I am home sweet home in the good old state of Pennsylvania. 

I am not making a promise of much blogging this week, because Christmas is about family (and I plan to be spending as much time as possible with mine!) I did want to leave you with a peak of how we left our home in Kentucky. I convinced Josh that even though I wouldn't be there for the holiday I wanted it to be decorated for the entire month of December.

These gifts clearly made the haul to PA with us though. 

Honestly I didn't think it was weird to have a wreath on our couch until we had guests, ha!

Snagged these adorable Santa hat covers from the Dollar Store.

Made this entire centerpiece for only $6! I am a women on a budget!

My mom used to tie bows on all the handles in the kitchen when I was growing up, thought I would carry on the tradition.

If you remember I stole the garland around the arch idea straight from Pinterest!

We opened up stockings before we left.
(sorry the picture is so dark!)
Josh liked all his gifts I hope!

I had a little extra garland and A LOT of extra lights so I decided to go that route for our mantle!

And our stockings! I found the glitter letters are Wal-Mart and fell in love.

I have loved seeing all the decorated houses on in the blogging world, so I hope you enjoyed a tour of our home. You might see me around this week, but if not Happy Holidays and have a Very Merry Christmas!


  1. I did the same thing with decorating my house! My boyfriend was only there 2 weeks this month and I just came home to my family today but I insisted we put up the decorations! Your tree and everything else looks adorable!
