Rambling from a crazy person

So I planned on posting pictures of our laundry room progress today.  But I can't seem to find any of the pictures I've taken.  I'm hoping they are still on the camera or I'm not going to have any before pictures.  Which isn't as fun.  So you'll just have to settle with some random rambling from me, a crazy person.

We put up our Christmas tree this past weekend.  I was super excited because we didn't get a chance to do it last year, you know with the moving and everything.

I don't have any pictures of the tree yet, but it's pretty.  Just take my word for it.

What I do have is a picture of Yoda being Yoda.  She's not supposed to be up on the couch (unless she's invited, because lets face it I love cuddling with that little potato).  So while we were busy assembling and decorating the tree, she climbed up there and made herself comfortable on a pile of pillows, in a location she could watch us from, or course.  What a little shit.  But because she's so cute an because we were a little busy, we just let her stay there.  I know, way to go with the discipline.  Then I put the Santa hat on her, and because she is very laid back and passive, she just left it there.  Seriously, for hours.  She just watched us with the Santa hat on.  Maybe she just knew how adorable she looked.

I'm not done with the decorating, but we did come to the realization that we don't have any outside power outlets, so pretty outdoor lights are out of the question until we can have some installed next summer.  Sad face.  May I can put some in the windows on the inside.  Hmmmm, I think I know my plan of attack when I get home tonight.

I also need to replace my wreath.  I'm just going to go get a nice real evergreen wreath and dress it up a bit, maybe with some berries and bows.  Or even some glitter.  Who knows.  It will be replacing my coffee filter wreath that met it's end this weekend.  I'm not sure what happened, but I suspect sabotage.  I don't want to go into it, the pains to fresh right now, ;-)

I also want to make some of these Layered Ribbon Trees.  I think they are sooooooooo cute.  I found them over at Sparkle Girl.  She has a bunch of cute ideas that I would love to try and make for the house.  I have a feeling I will be pinning a great deal of her ideas to pinterest in the future.       

I mean look at these cute trees.  I think I might make a red one, a silver one, and a gold one.  That will tie in nicely with the tree (if you haven't guessed already, that's our Christmas color theme).

I also would like to make a little tree out of tiny ornaments or even beads.  But, I can't go crazy since, we don't have a lot of places to put these little guys right now.  *hint, hint.  maybe we should get going on making the sofa table and other accent table in the living room.*

Hopefully I can get my act together by tomorrow and have some fun pictures to show everyone.  We really did get a lot done over our four day weekend, I'm not making that up, scouts honor. 

Well I'm off for now, happy crafting, decorating, etc, etc.

Those trees are really cute! A red one would be great.
