Shopping Trip to Wal-Mart

I found the cutest tops today at Wal-Mart. I love decorating, but I think I love shopping more, especially clothes and shoes. So when I find a great deal, I feel the need to share it with others!! These tops, which are called burn-out tops, because you layer them under another top, and they are also quite thin, were on a table marked $8.00. They have almost identical ones at the Buckle store at the mall for $26.50. Anyway, I picked up a few thinking I could use these. Then a lady walked up and said, "Aren't these cute? You know they are marked down to $5.00?" My mouth started watering! Of course, I started digging through the rest of the colors for my size. So I ended up with all 5 colors for $25.00. Now that's a deal....5 tops for 25.00! By the way, they are by Miley Cyrus, but age has no limit on a bargain!

Outdoor Wednesday - Christmas Decorations

Here are some shots of our house decorated for Christmas. These are before and after the snow shots. My husband, whose nickname is Smokey loves to decorate the outside for Christmas. We call him Clark Griswold. Every year he keeps adding something. I never know what he will come home with. The carolers in the front are from a yard sale that he picked up for $1.00 because they wouldn't work. He brought them home and re-wired them and now they are as good as new, even though they're probably 20 years old. He has a sound system in our attic that he has hooked to the carolers so they sound like they're singing. What will he think of next? For more Outdoor Wednesday pics, please visit Susan over at A Southern Daydreamer.

Christmas Tree

Here is the before and after shot of the den decorated for Christmas. I found the Nativity Picture at Hobby Lobby right when you come in the door. It was sitting on an easel just waiting for me to grab it, and of course I did! I did my tree in Americana style, and I keep adding to it each year. For more before and afters, please visit Between Naps on the Porch for some great ideas!

Snow Day

I know ya'll think I fell off the face of the earth, but I really didn't. I've just been busy with life. I've gotten so into facebook that I've neglected my blog, but I promise I'll do better. I'm ready for Christmas and we have just gotten about 8 inches of snow. It really looks like it may be a white Christmas after all, because they are calling for more snow here on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We went out to play in the snow yesterday and took a few pictures.
