Day 5: Christmas Morning Outfits

For many years growing up, our cousins slept over from Christmas Eve into Christmas Morning. My dad would make this big Christmas breakfast before they went off to their other grandparents’ house. On one Black Friday, my aunt and my mom bought us all matching PJs for the Christmas Eve sleepover, and now we match every year… even though they don’t stay overnight anymore.

I think this is a super fun tradition that also has resulted in my owning several pairs of flannel pajama pants… not complaining about that!

If I find the original photo of our matching PJs, I’ll add it to this post… but for now, here’s last year’s photo.

Day 4: Secret Santa Life Saver

This probably won’t be very useful to you this year since it’s already December 17, but I must tell you about a super fun and useful app we found this year. I shared about this on my Instastory a few weeks ago, and I’m pretty obsessed with it.

Our family decided to do a secret santa this year to be a little more minimalist in our gift giving. We’re spread out between NJ – SC, so we wanted to include everyone in the Christmas fun!

Day 2: Shop Local

You’re probably going to a lot of parties this time of year, and maybe you’re not sure what gift to pick up for the host or hostess at the next event. Or you might be tired of getting the same things all the time…. I have a few recommendations for ways to shop local and find the perfect hostess gift…

Day 1: Festive Decorations

So I’m going to try 12 Days of Christmas (ending on Christmas). I know every one else started a yesterday or the day before, but I’m starting today (I’m also pretty sure that the 12 days are supposed to start on Christmas and go until Kings Day in January, but no one else seems to pay attention to these things)… Keep me accountable, friends!

I want to get back into blogging, and this seemed like a fun way to start things off.

Many of my decorations you’ve seen in other places on my blog. If I make things, I do try to use them every year! The biggest change this year was the plant situation. The pine tree doesn’t fit in well with the jungle growing in front of my window. I moved a few plants to the other side of the fireplace, but they don’t get a lot of sun, so that won’t be permanent.
