A confession

My kids love oranges - but I'm an apple kinda girl.

A lot of people I know love the color blue. But It's just not my thing.

And, my dear friends - I'm the lady who puts up her Christmas tree before Thanksgiving although a lot of people think it's a sin!


Except that it usually looks more like this....



And I have bravely, brazenly, bold faced-ly (is that a word) changed my blogging template to a Christmas theme in mid-November.

Can we still be friends? =)

R U Kidding?!?!? I would love to have my Christmas tree up now, but hubby won't let me do any decorating until Thanksgiving is over. That usually means I stack all of my decorations boxes in the living room until Thanksgiving dinner is over!!!!

My sister (Collette), had her whole entire house decorated for Christmas last year on Nov. 9. You two would get along fabulously.

Jodie I am so sorry to say this but I will not be visiting your blog again until approximately 5:00 pm eastern standard time on Thanksgiving day. I am a stickler about not decorating until TDay is over...I will miss you...LOL!

Seriously I don't do anything Christmas-y until around that time! I am so TYPE A about it. Your blog looks great though! I can't wait to change mine! I am sure the nontwilighters are counting the days till I change it. LOL

One of our boys B-day is near the first of Dec so he likes us to wait until after his B-day to put up our Christmas stuff :)

I am SOOO with you on that! I would have my Christmas tree up next week if my Hubby wouldn't pitch a fit. The day after Thanksgiving it will be up- I even have some fun new ornaments for it. Can't wait!

Uh, Merry Thanksgiving to you? I LOVE your blog. It's decorated beautifully. I love seeing all of the decorations, but I just can't bring myself to listen to the 3 stations that play nothing but Christmas music between now and Dec 25th. I bet your home is decorated beautifully too!

Way to go!! Your blog is too cute. My son at BYU found the online FM100 Christmas music and of course had to tell me about it. He knows how much I love Christmas music - and it's been on for a week now. My boys at home just laugh at me, but I think they secretly like it too, lol. All I have to say is "Let the merry-ness begin."

Oh dear, I'm not sure if I'll be able to come back to visit you for a few weeks. Yikes!
Explanation: read my post today.
