Early Christmas Gift

I've been keeping a secret and I can finally reveal it. I'm having a baby! 
Our third little one is due this July so that means I am in the middle of the joys of morning/afternoon/evening sickness. That would explain why I have been MIA lately and will be for the next month. 
I know I could of picked a better holiday to skip than Christmas but I will just have to make it up to you next Christmas. 

So from my family to yours I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas Entryways

As I have said before, the entryway to your home sets the tone for what is behind that front door. 
Make it pretty!
All of these ideas are from a fabulous website My Home Ideas which I gather many a great idea from. These are just a few of my favorite Christmas entryways but they have many more beautiful ones. 

I am a big fan of wreaths on the windows. This year I simplified things and only put wreaths on the inside of my bedroom windows. I did not want to put any wreaths on the front of the house this year but still wanted to use them. I will enjoy them as will the cows in the pasture behind my house.

I LOVE monograms. I don't know if it's a southern thing or just a Lisa thing but it is a statement of "This is who I am and I am proud of it" kind of thing. Make sense?
I am now on the hunt for wooden letters like these that I can paint and put my own spin on for my front door.
