Merry Christmas and happy new year!
My two older boys are at their cousin’s house and my niece is here for a sleepover. My baby is napping and my husband just left to go shopping so I am going to take down all the Christmas decorations and get ready for a fresh new start. I have been organizing and cleaning like crazy to make our house clean, simple, and organized for 2015.
I just got rid of 15 garbage bags of things from our house. Four bags went to my sister-in-law, two bags went to my sister, three bags went to the garbage, and the rest went to the Goodwill. It feels great and I feel so much lighter already.
As I was getting ready to take my decorations down, I realized that I never showed you my Christmas Decour and that’s something I do every year. So, I quickly got out my phone and snapped a few photos for you. You see, I have been busier than usual this December. It’s not a bad thing, it just means I have not been on social media as much as I usually am – which is a great break for me.
Early December, my husband and I went to Mexico, then we came back and hosted my mother-in-law here for a week, then we had a week to get ready for Christmas and we filled it with my nativity is for the kids including going to the lake show, seeing Santa, making cookies, shopping, the Christmas program at school, and ugly sweater party, a charity event, and we can sneak in another weekend getaway to Chicago together. Basically, we were go, go, go all week long. Then Christmas came and we enjoyed parties with family, opening presents and going to my Mom’s.
Last night we had New Year’s eve and to be honest I am ready for some downtime. I have an upcoming conference January 9 and 10th and other than that I am going to be focusing on working out, my business, and purging my house of stuff we don’t need.
I will be back again to show you my top posts of 2014 and share my 2015 goals with you. For now, I’m going to focus on cleaning up this disaster of a house and put away all the decorations freight fresh new start and new year.
Here are a few photos of our Christmas Decor… I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a awesome new year!!!
