It's looking AND FEELING like Christmas!

Happy December, everyone!! I hope you all had the nice long weekend, we did here in Connecticut!

You can see how my long weekend started here.

Friday: Mike and I drove down to Westerly for our annual Black Friday "Christmas Tree Day" with my parents.  We always put up all of their decorations that day.  My mom also surprised me with an early bridal shower gift.  There is a tradition where moms buy their daughters one ornament each Christmas and give it to them for their own Christmas trees at their shower.  She knows we desperately need ornaments, so she was nice enough to give them to me early.  I am so excited to use them!

Saturday: Mike and I went to the UConn football game.  They won their first home game and second game of the year [we were there last weekend!].  Plus, we got to tailgate with some great friends, including Kallie of But First, Coffee and her fantastic boyfriend, Michael!

Sunday: We recovered relaxed around the house, ordered Domino's, and started taking out our Christmas decorations.  This is at least a week-long ordeal for us, and I can promise this year will be even better than last year.

Linking up for This Weekend I...Weekend Shenanigans, and Monday Funday!

So Christmasy! I love it, and lucky with all those ornaments. I don't think we are getting a tree this year :(

Christmas trees, football, and pizza in ONE POST!! Sounds like an amazing weekend. I love this season but honestly it flies by much too quickly. Our tree is up but has yet to be decorated. I'll get right on that! lol
