Christmas Crazies: The Outside

I hope you all understand my love for Christmas lights.  Like seriously, y'all.  This was the photo I put on IG on October 10th:
Home Depot had an awesome selection this year, but I promise, we did not purchase anything that day and waited until after Thanksgiving to start our decorating.  In case you're new around here, the bottom photo was our light display last year - more on that here.  

We even have too many lights inside our house... here's my post on our inside decor from last week.  Now, here's the start to the 2013 lights: icicles then windows:
Each year, we have to add to what we did the previous year.  So, this year we upgraded our Bumble, added a cardinal to our front porch, more lights around the windows, and lights around our shed.  Here what it looks like this year:

and some of our little "scenes..."
Is this excessive? Yes.  Do we love it? Yes.  It's just so much fun to put together and to watch all the people slow down when they drive by!  Finally, here's everything after last night's snow storm [the third in a week... what is going on in CT?!]:
our friends got a little buried...

Cute! Love the decor. I can't believe how much snow CT has been getting. Hopefully my flight doesn't get delayed on Saturday!

OH MY GOSH, I'm dying over how much snow y'all got.... AHHHH, BARREN MISSISSIPPI! We will never produce a good snow. boo. Anyways, I have these two thoughts: (1) If I'm in CT next September, I kind of think you should have all these lights up so I can see them in person.... (2) Depending on where my life is at then and I can't come out for September... then I'm thinking a full on December trip is happening so I can see snow and lights and awesome and you won't be as stressed with the wedding and so on and so forth (although I'd love to be there for the wedding... but JUST.IN.CASE!) Have a fabulous day, my friend!! AHHHH, I MISS YOU!

So pretty! I only put up two strings of lights this year but next year I want to buy more and make it really nice! Merry Christmas!

You've got quite the talent for interior design capabilities. My favorite is the room with the orange and pink cushions. There are so many colors in that room. I wouldn't have ever considered putting all those colors together in tandem in that one room. It looks stunning though.Pioneer paving and masonry
