I'll be home for Christmas.....

Ok, before I get to the CHristmas I have to share the scariest picture EVER!!! It's me and my BFF (black friday friend...she's AN EXPERT at it!) on our girls day. We spent the whole day Monday in Flag...it was awesome! WE did it once before and we're planning our next venture. For those of you that don't know...this is the world famous, Chompy's mom. Yea. So we went to Dillards and had the Clinique ladies do makeovers on us, and this is what we ended up like! Seriously, she doesn't look like that..just like I don't look like that. They did something weird to our eyes to make us look like some weird new foresty animal....and she didn't mean to make that face, the stranger that took our camera didn't do the ole 1...2....3. She just did snap! blah! And I told my makeover lady to make my lips look bigger...um, I can hardly see them in this picture! But I had to share. It was an awesome girls day though...we hit, Charrollette Russe, Savers, Chilis, Target, Kohl's, Walmart, Payless, Michael's, Sam's, Ross, Petco, Marshall's, Rue 21, Dollar General, an I'm sure another half dozen that I'm forgetting....it pretty much took us about 10 hours to get our shopping done. We should have taken a picture of her van when we got home..it wad loaded. Good thing we are married to the two doctors in town....but too bad her's makes great money and mine is still trying to pay off major debt...hahaha! And I had to share this pic, because a lot of you know them...eric miller and amy dewitt...two JC alumni...and yes I did do someone besides MY family's family pictures, but they're my neighbors, and it took about 5 minutes!
Ok, now to Christmas. I'm not good at taking pictures in this dark house. I had to brighten all of these. But the tree on the left is our REAL tree...we decided to decorate it outdoorsy (still needs more decorations, I know) and the tree on the right is our usual fakey, with pink and red. Those two are the best colors together EVER! Any holiday we celebrate will be celebrated with pink and red...if you don't like it...don't worry about it, chances are you never come visit anyways!

Just thought I'd share a little mroe decor with you....the 3 apothecary jars in the middle are my favs...they have 3 different kinds of ande's mints...which I need daily. So far, the peppermint is my favorite, followed by the orignal, then the cherry, and last the butter toffee. Oh, and those roses are from our anniversary last week. and the bottom half is our usuall little book cubby decorated for the season.

And I LOVE my new Santa! He looks like a log, but no, he's really Santa...and hes' got a cute tree on his back, but my angle FAILS to show it! I stink! Does anyoen want me to take a picture of the tree on his back? Cause I will...it's adorable, and I think you'd all love it! And the bottom half is our favorite nativity. My sister gave it to us for our wedding.

The next set of CHristmas decor will come as soon as my awesome husband finds a freaking hammer and puts it up...hopefully it's before Christmas! Come on baby, you can do it.....GET A HAMMER! GET A HAMMER!!!!

Thank you for the disclaimer! The sad thing is this is probably the face that my children see all the time when I'm trying to look mean or serious. Maybe that doc of yours should post this pict. in his office and show people what you can look like if you don't keep your neck muscles strong or have proper head alignment. You do look amazing though, and no, you do NOT have chicken lips!

Holly said...

I actually think you look good! But me - I've got no make-up skills - so oh well! The home decor looks fab and seeing your real tree makes me want to rip my fakey down and put up a real one! Fun, fun!

Mary Ann said...

I think you look like Kate Walsh in that pic, and I definitly mean that as a compliment.

And I am laughing because Trina's hubby was my crush when I was 8, and he was probably 16!

I love the pink and red - cant wait to see it! There are really only two doctors in JC? crazy! that puts alot of pressure on them:-) I have a crap camera, but you made me want to take tidbit pictures of Christmas at the Guttbutts. Ah.... who am I kidding, I never blog anymore.

GOrgeous decor, I need you as my personal interior designer, I suck at it. I don't think this condo could look good no matter what we did to it, but at least we have our decorations out. I think you look cute in the make up pict too! We got our family pict back yesterday and I have to say it is the ugliest pict ever. We all look awful, I didn't even buy any for our Christmas cards like I was planning. I am very sad about that, I wish we would have set up a time to come get picts form you, there is no comparison to your skills. You are awsome, hopefully next year we can get you to take our picts. Have a great weekend!

kristal said...

LuAnne said...

doctors :)

kristal said...

Did I say doctors are hot?! I take it back!!! hahaha! BUt I hafta say my doctor is.

LuAnne said...

No you were just talking about how it was a good thing that you were married to the 2 doctors in town, so I just added that roofers are hotter than doctors, because they don't make as much money :)

Kristal said...

Um, I'm sure lots of roofers make more than my doctor...hahaha! It's just fun to say that I have one of the docs in town....I just don't let people know that it's a town with hardly any doctors, and don't let them know that my doctor is barely building up a practice...haha! When the HECK ar eyou guys coming over for dinner?!!!
