For the first time in forever, I feel like I should be getting in the holiday spirit a little early. Maybe it’s because this year has been full of bad news (in the media, not to me personally) and we all are in the need of some cheer but it seems like we’re skipping ahead faster than normal.
And don’t get me wrong I LOVE THANKSGIVING. It is legit my favorite holiday: eating, no presents, not religion based so everyone celebrates, four-day weekend, the majority of people are off work… I could go on. I hate the idea of “skipping” it but I do feel ready to get in the Christmas spirit. It doesn’t help that we need a new Christmas tree, so I’ve been on the hunt for one a little early. That has led me down the decor rabbit hole that you’ll find below.
Also, my girls are crazy about Christmas and Reese is on a SERIOUS mission to find the perfect holiday dress for his Christmas program. So she’s been driving hounding me to order her something festive so she can show out for that kindergarten show. Don’t get me started.
Anyways, since I like sharing what I’ve been hunting for, since I assume I’m not the only one, here’s some of those early buys that have been on my radar. Hot tip for the frazzled moms of little ones: get an advent calendar. My kids are obsessed and it helps keep them patient during the countdown to Christmas. But when Drew was little, I didn’t remember to get it until like five days into December. So order one now so you’re ready to go on the first.
