Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! This week I wanted to share some more of my little apartment decorated for Christmas. I cleaned house on Saturday and had plans to wash my car and take photos of my Christmas décor on Sunday but my daughter had other plans! Since she turned 21 and is now of legal drinking age she woke up and said "lets go to brunch" since now she can order mimosas! I put off my plans because hers sounded so much more fun. Brunch turned into a whole day of going here and there ...So here it is Wednesday night after work and I'm trying to take photos in the dark.
Beau jumped up on the chair when I brought the camera out...
...and then Coco Chanel had to get in the photo too! She's getting so big now! She turned 4 months old on my daughter's 21st birthday!
|Lauren's 21st Birthday!|
Here is a photo of my daughter (with her "birthday girl" tiara) and her friend and I at her birthday dinner. My daughter and I spent the whole day together and then met up for dinner with family. Then she and her friends went out dancing. She said it was the best birthday ever. I still can't believe she's 21! We laugh because now she is of legal drinking age and no one ever asks for her ID!
Both my kids have December birthdays! My son, Vince turns 27 on Thursday, December 19th! Happy Birthday Vince and Lauren!
As you can see, I haven't done much Christmas shopping yet. I only have one present under the tree! All my money is going into savings since I have to move by the end of February! There will be more presents under there soon though!
These photos didn't turn out very well in the low light. I'm still getting used to the photo editing software that came on my computer. I'm missing the Photoshop I had on my old MacBook! I don't want to spend the money on that right now since I have to move by the end of February.
I usually use faux greenery on my staircase but I was at Trader Joe's and saw this real cedar garland for such a great price I decided to buy it. It looked great for about 5 days and now it's so dried out.
...I have collected so many ornaments through the years...
My company is having a shutdown over the Christmas holiday so I'm really looking forward to the time off. I plan to spend some time looking for a new apartment! Wish me luck! I don't have to be out until the end of February but I know that will be here before I know it!!
I'm actually looking forward to being a new place now although the dreadful moving day is always on my mind. I've had two dreams about it. The first...my landlord showed up at my door and told me that she realized how much I loved living here and said she changed her mind and they are not going to kick me out to renovate this place...I was so torn in my dream because I had my mind set on moving into something new and felt ready for a change. My second dream is that a bunch of my blog friends came to help me move and I was giving all my things away because I didn't want the clutter in my new apartment! lol... as you can see this move is always on my mind...even in my dreams!
