I found this awesome infographic on Anglian Home's Good to be Home site. Since Thanksgiving is this week, and most people start decorating for Christmas just before or after Thanksgiving, I thought now would be a good time to share these creative ways to make your own interesting Christmas tree for the holidays.

How to Get Christmas Tree Sap Off Your Hands And Other Holiday Shinanigans

Beach Bungalow Time Kyle and I have been doing a few holiday things lately. First, we stayed home for Thanksgiving. Sometimes big family gatherings can get a bit overwhelming. So, let's just say it was a very peaceful Thanksgiving for us. We stayed home and watched cheesy holiday movies and went on a walk to the beach before making our ... see more >>

I Made a Christmas Wreath

Well, I actually made this a few years ago, I think the first Christmas Kyle and I were married, but I thought what better time to share this than now, after pulling out all my decorations for Christmas! (Don't mind the ugly screen though, our landlord still needs to replace that, lol!) I like to keep things simple, so I just got ... see more >>

A Walk in The Park

Hey everyone, happy Monday to you. Today we're going to document our first Christmas married (2008) and so today I bring you Christmas Eve and Christmas. On Christmas Eve, we decided to go to the park and feed the ducks and geese.   It was actually cold so I got to wear gloves and a scarf.   I like ... see more >>

Family Crazy People Time at Christmas

If you're here for the first time, Start at the Beginning of the One House, One Couple Journey.   Since Kyle and I weren't going to spend any time with family on Christmas or Christmas Eve, we had a celebration at my dad's house on 12-22-08.

Okay, so today I have a special surprise for you, and it shouldn't be a surprise due to the nature of this blog (whatever that nature may be), but anyway, the surprise was kind of ruined by the title, so ... see more >>

Hanging French Doors

Today's our last post before Christmas. We will be back on Tuesday Dec. 27th with another DIY update on our house. Today we're going to talk about hanging French doors. Kyle pretty much did this himself (besides me just helping him hold things up here and there) so I'm giving him full credit for this one! Also, Lisha's in-laws came ... see more >>

Framing French Doors

Before we get started, I want to let you know that I'm going to post some random Christmassy pictures in today's and tomorrow's posts. It is Christmastime after all, and although our current timeline of fixing the house doesn't quite line up with Christmas at this moment, I am still going to present a little holiday spirit! :) But ... see more >>
