Christmas in July

I actually got Christmas fever a few weeks ago. I’ve already purchased several gifts, added a few Christmas pins to my {Christmas board} and even listened to Christmas music for a few hours one day. I am so ready. And since today marks the 5 month countdown, I thought we’d celebrate with a little bit of Christmas…

DECORATING: Stockings for place settings? YES, you will see this on my dining room table in less than 5 months.And in front of my fireplace – a basket filled with Christmas tree clippings, logs and lights!


 A simple yet beautiful decoration – candles and bells!


FESTIVE DRINKS: I can’t wait to partake it lots of warm festive beverages…like Hot Caramel Pear Cider…


and Christmas Sangria!


GIFTS: I can’t wait to wrap lots of beautiful presents


CHRISTMAS PARTIES: sparkly dresses and red shoes!

 {similar, similar}

 CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATING: My ornament collection grew so much last year that I am so anxious to decorate my tree.



CHRISTMAS COOKIES: Too early to start thinking about our annual cookie exchange? Nope!


JESUS: My favorite part and the real reason for the season!


Merry Christmas in July!

    That is so funny! Reading your post and the comments…I love that were all fevering for Christmas!! I have already started planning out Christmas party, but I blame that one Ben he brought it up first when we were in Starbucks the other day. It's mine and Ben's first Christmas ALONE so were really excited to have our own little family Christmas and create our own traditions!
