A hospital stay & a Pinterest Christmas
My favorite person on the whole planet is in the hospital this morning for the first time ever. Well, as long as I’ve been alive. This stubborn, spitfire, sweetheart has a partial blocked heart valve. It’s tough being so far away from home, feeling helpless but my folks did a great job keeping me updated.
They kept her overnight to do more testing and boy was I worried all night. I bet she’s sitting in bed twiddling her thumbs as I type this-something she’s always done!
Grandma & I are a lot alike so I can imagine how out of place & lonely she must have felt. She’s a creature of habit and I just know she wanted to be home in her bed. But she was most definitely in the best place possible.
Overall it seems like she’s doing much better. We are all staying positive & hoping she is well enough to go home soon. She’s too stubborn to give up.
You can bet I have big plans to get grandma Starbucks wasted when I go home.
If y’all wouldn’t mind saying a little prayer or send well wishes her way my family & I would really appreciate it. <3 Love you guys!!
The world knows how much I LOVE Christmas, I’m having a really hard time waiting to decorate until the day after Thanksgiving. So I’ve been stalking Pinterest for ideas I love but will probably never recreate myself. It’s so fun to Pin stuff & dream.
Sooooo in an effort to celebrate one holiday at a time, I will hold off on decorating and share some of the most beautiful Christmas pictures with you. I sure hope you don’t mind while I get this out of my system…for now. Muhahaha
I can’t even get over how cute these mini gingerbread houses are!! These have to be my favorite find. I mean, how do you even decorate something so tiny? love.love.love.
I’m big on textures and simplicity. This Noel sign is super adorable & I bet easy to make. Anyone want to play Martha Stewart for me?
This adorable driftwood Christmas tree is one of those why didn’t I think of that things. I bet it would be super cute on the front porch too.
This is probably my second favorite. Imagine sitting on that cold patio set with your paws wrapped around a hot cup of coffee or hot cocoa staring at the twinkling lights. It would be chilly, but that view would be so worth it.
So simple, so festive. Now this is something even I could totally do.
***Side note, all pics were taken from Pinterest, where I was unable to find the source on all but 1. If you know where they are originally from, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due. We all know there’s no way in heck I’m remotely this creative.***

My family is thinking about doing a homemade Christmas. If you have any semi-easy DIY gift ideas, please let me know/link to them.
