Good morning friends! i’ve been in seattle all week, hence the absence on ig. i just flew in yesterday morning and hit the ground running prepping for my daughter’s dance winter showcase. i’m about ready to head out the door to be a dance mom, but wanted to share my mantel/stocking styling tips along with a few other gals. i’ll also be sharing a bit on my stories, so watch me there!
hop on over to see how these lovely ladies display their stockings:

Still can’t even begin to tell you how happy i am about how this bathroom turned out. this is still an iphone pic, but a friend lent me a real camera to try out. i’ve messed around a bit, and what a world of difference it makes! i need to get a tripod and figure out how to get the pictures from the camera to my phone so i can upload to ig (or upload from computer to ig). baby steps. .
.
.
also, i remember some of the gals finishing the one room challenge saying they were going to go drink their coffee or eat their lunch in their completed room. i totally want to do that in here, but i think that’d be a little weird 😆!

Did a little repotting of plants this morning. it feels like i’m constantly repotting something. is this what it’s like to be a plant lady? this is all fairly new to me 😆. oh, and who knew it took so long to water them all?! i haven’t landscaped one bit at this house, but did at the last...and i’ll tell you, watering outside plants is way less time consuming!

next chore this morning: cleaning bathrooms 😩. the worst. that and folding laundry. not sure which is worse. seriously considering hiring someone to clean my bathrooms and mop my floors. what’s your least favorite chore? do you hire help for cleaning? .

Breaking up the home decor feed a bit to share this regal fella. he sits so perfectly all the time. you should see his walk. he’s got the most perfect gait ever. don’t even get me started on his coat. it’s the prettiest, flowiest, silkiest coat on a golden retriever i’ve ever seen (he probably should’ve been a show dog)! but, alas, he’s a complete and total goofball! his personality totally does not match his looks. he’s really not a manly man at all (we had a golden who was) and he’s so pretty that we sometimes call him princess. or fabio. .

I love that my 8-yo daughter is as opinionated about decorating as i am. i hate that she doesn’t share my same opinions 😆! it is fun to watch and listen to her rationale about why she does things a certain way. like her little white house and bottle brush vignette you see by the brass lamp? i’m not sure if the objects could be smooshed any closer together or the trees arranged more perfectly. i think i tend to arrange things a little more casually/organically. but you know what? the kid loves to decorate for christmas so i let her. .
.

what about you, friends? do you let your kids do the decorating or do you hold your ground and do it yourself? or maybe you’re lucky and your kids don’t care 😅?

Hey, hey! it’s fwineday! i got home from the gym this morning and thought about all the things i need to finish up for work. then i remembered that i worked until 8pm last night and my husband went hunting today. so s***w it, i’m taking the day off (mostly) and dinking around at my house. i just went out and cut some hemlock and blueberry bush branches for that always empty vase right there. next i’m going to deal with the garland that is sitting on my porch waiting for me to do something with. question for you all: do you soak your garland, let it dry, wilt-pruf it, and spritz it everyday? last year i hung it and did nothing...then hated myself because it made such a mess. or are you a genius and bought faux? .

So you know the #oneroomchallenge that wrapped up a few weeks ago? well, my slacker b**t finally finished the room i’d planned on accomplishing for that challenge! to be fair, the things that held me up were out of my control. i shared on my stories, but there were two shipments of damaged shiplap and a damaged cabinet (the doors still aren’t what i ordered, but they’re replacements have been ordered 🤦🏻‍♀️). but, it’s pretty much done! just gotta paint the door jamb and the inside of the door. i also realized that i’m gonna have a heck of a time photographing with my iphone. for now, i stuck a small lamp on the corner and tried to adjust the color as much as possible. i think it might work better with a daylight bulb, but i don’t own any of those because 🤢. either way, still not happy with the pictures i’ve taken. a real camera might be on my christmas list.
stay tuned for better pics!

Here she is, guys! charlie brown would be so proud! we have a very long standing tradition of cutting down our christmas trees with my father-in-law. the tree has to be a jack pine because the things like never lose their needles. i mean, the tree can be laying on the ground dead until summer time with brown needles and they still won’t fall off. i’ve learned to embrace the imperfect ness of these trees over the years. i do like that you can hang a 5 pound ornament from it and will take it like a champ. .

so tell me, are you team cut-your-own-tree-in-the-woods, cut-your-own-tree-at-a-tree-farm, team buy-a-real-tree, or team artificial-tree?
.
.
.
also, i just remembered that ironically both my husband and i had grandparents with christmas tree farms 😱🤯!!!

You guys wanna know a secret? that fab daybed right there is a dog bed. true story. it’s not even like i bought it and the dogs took it over and it turned into a dog bed. i actually bought it for the dogs to sleep on (as evidenced by the dog hair on the wool blanket 😏). my husband was tired of tripping over dog beds in the morning and i kinda wanted something for under these windows anyway. thanks @article for making the best dog beds on the planet 😉. (not sponsored, btw). so, now you know just how crazy of a dog lady i am 🤷🏻‍♀️. .

Sharing my trick photography skills. the trick is that the mess is behind me and in front of the sofa (as opposed to couch since i’m insta filtering and feeling fancy 😉😆...see a few post back for that inside joke) and you just can’t see it from here.
also...my daughter just declared that the sun is burning her eyes. typical southeast alaska kid for ya’. .

who’s all black friday shopping today? i might do a little online, but did the store thing once about 10 years ago with my mil and sil and will never do that again 🤯!
