Christmas Is In The Air!

Christmas is in the air…or maybe it’s my Christmas Wreath Yankee Candle…

So, maybe I’m a bit behind but I’ve had Christmas on the mind since Nov 28th. And after a not-so-quick dining room painting project delayed my decorations…I finally got cracking.

This year I felt a delay in getting in the holiday spirit. So much has been going on and even though it feels like they start advertising and decorting for the holiday earlier and earlier…I can’t help but feel a bit rushed…slow down! Don’t come yet!

With the days not slowing down anytime soon for me and Christmas now less than 2 weeks away it was time to bust out my trusty “X-MAS” bin. It’s a bunch of random stuff I have collected over the year, this year I felt it a bit lacking so perhaps a trip to my local home goods and christmas tree shop is in order to revamp my collection.

Either way, tonight we cranked out holiday tunes. Poured some red wine and decorated!

All I want for Christmas is a fixed iPhone screen…

Now that I am in full swing of getting in the holiday spirit (I even bought some gifts this week!). I am of course planning my holiday Christmas party and what goodies I will prepare for it. This weekend I’m hoping to get down to the meat market in New Haven to find some small whole chickens (Perdue- I love you but, 2 people can’t keep buying 10lb chickens for dinner and i can never find smaller at the loca grocery store), pork shoulders and possibly…….some rabbit and duck? (My dad is really pressuring me on those ones and I want to do it).

Keep your eyes posted later this weekend because i’m fixin’ to make Pork Rillettes to have over the next few weeks of parties and holiday festivities. Until then…enjoy my tree…

If you are wondering why we have a fake tree…because trust me…there is nothing I love more than a big real Christmas tree…

It is because of Portia. Nothing terrible has ever happened but when we got her 3 Christmas’ ago I decided to cut my losses and just go fake…since she really likes sticks…And KNOCK ON WOOD we have never had a problem with her and the tree. Even if I haven’t hung my Waterford ornament since she has joined our lives.
