homeless

I don't get too too personal on the blog alot, but I figured people might be wondering where we've been, what we've been up to...
Well we're house hunting!!! Our house sold in two weeks (a good thing, I know!) but we close Jan 25th and aren't sure were we are living yet. If anyone knows my husband then you know he is overly critical, indecisive, and a prograsticnator ALL things that do not suit well when it comes to need to find a home in 30 days.
Between our 9-5 jobs, being parents, all that is involved with xmas (shopping, decorating, parties), oh and grandaddy passed away :( ADD house hunting into ever free second inbetween all the above mentioned....this women is STRESSED.
I'm actually embarrased to admit that our xmas tree never made it inside our home this year :( We bought one...but then had to put it up in the backyard the night we got it because we had a showing the next morning. That showing turned into a contract to sell and its been crazy since. so sad. so sad.
Well its safe to say this next home will be our forever home because if I have to house hunt again with my overly critical, indecisive, perfectionist of a husband then it may just very well lead to divorce. and we dont want that. so we should just not move again ;) On the other hand, if I was doing this myself I would have bought 5 different homes by now so its probably a good thing that we balance each other out. love u baby!
Will someone tell my husband there is no such thing as a perfect home...oh and remind him what our budget is, cause he LOVES to go see houses we can't afford. Now that's productive. (insert sarcasm)
Who has a spare room?
Merry Christmas from our homeless to yours!! :) MIN-1L9-HYC_A_FRT-1

DIY: Magnolia Wreath

Magnolia trees are a dime a dozen around here in Charlotte. We don't have one in our yard...but our neighbors do ;) SHHHH, don't tell, but I snuck over there and borrowed (ok stole) some leaves off their three to make us an oh so pretty Magnolia Wreath.
Here's what I used...a wire wreath template and green floral wire both from Michaels.

and some leaves of course...

There are some turtorials online that use foam wreaths and I might try that next time in order to make the wreath fluffier looking but what I used did the trick too...

And just start outside in tieing leafs on the wire template. I must say this was more time consuming that i would have liked, a few hours all combined.

But I'd say the end product was well worth it! IMG_3575 IMG_3576 IMG_3577 Jakey wanted to help but I wouldnt let him...so he gave me his best "puppy dog face" IMG_3533 HEY! Write it down, record the date, I did a post that wasn't about the baby :) Merry Christmas!
