This year it seems especially hard to get into the mood of Christmas. I don’t know if it’s because it’s been a little too warm outside lately or if I just haven’t been exposed to enough Christmas music yet, but I just haven’t been feeling it.
I even forgot to bring back a tree from my parents’ house last weekend, which was originally the reason I decided to go.
Luckily, my mom came to Kansas City today to go shopping with me and brought the little tree along with her! While we were out, I got a couple little Christmassy things, but I think I’m going to have to go shopping again tomorrow (TJ Maxx and Marshalls style) to get a few things to decorate “my” tree with.
Tonight I decided to check out some Pier 1 decor to get some inspiration for my shopping tomorrow. Here’s what I came up with:
I guess tonight I’m feeling happy-ish decorations. The penguin with the blue hat’s name is Penny the Penguin (named by Pier 1…I’m not that crazy), which I just love! She’s a tad pricey though!
I also saw some trees decorated with burlap while I was out today, so tomorrow I think I’ll experiment a bit with that when decorating my tree. :)
