December Daily Days 5-7

Are you all as busy as I am? So far this week I've had three parties, and I have two more to go to before Saturday night. Oh and did I mention the party on Saturday is at my house! What a crazy time of year! I was hoping to get through day 8 tonight, but I just couldn't get there, but here's what I did get done (you can click on any of the images to see them larger):


Day 5: Wedding Dress Shopping with one of my best friends and cooking with my mom!


 
Day 6: Youth Leader Christmas Party at our house. Oh and funny story. Do you see this silver napkin below? DO NOT BUY IT FROM TARGET! Seriously everyone's hands and faces were silver! It was so funny.

 
Day 7: The final touches on the tree.

Here's a closer look at this year's tree. It's kind of like my December Daily neutrals with a touch of red.


If you are curious what the garland is, it's just strips of white burlap that I cut. I also used some for the tree skirt. Okay and seriously don't you love the little mini Christmas flash cards? Oh and the star I made from twigs and twine. My husband says it remind him of the Blair Witch Project, but I still like it anyway!

You can see days 1-4 here.

I'm off to bed. I can barely keep my eyes open!

I am so jealous of your journal! So gorgeous, and what fun it will be to look back on. I wish I had the patience to put one together!

Oh and I LOVE the star on your tree. Ingenious!

Lasagna for 30!!! thank goodness your mom helped :) I agree that I'm sooooo envious of your album! It's beautiful, Courtney! Thanks so much for sharing it...I may have to make one next year :)

thanks for the napkin warning, too!! I'm going to buying new napkins for my Christmas table setting soon, so I'll avoid them :)

Nice book! I have to ask too, is that a paned window on your wall? I LOVE windows on walls, in fact I have one in my living room and my hubby asks monthly why we have a "window" hanging on our wall. I just think paned windows are so graphic and peaceful and beautiful...

Enjoy all of your parties and have FUN!! ♥♥ Kay
