Weekend Snapshots

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. The little guy and I are headed to Texas in a few days  and then a couple days after I get back my in-laws are going to be here for Christmas. So needless to say, I have been scrambling to get things done around the house. I feel like for every item I cross off my list, two more things are added!I got a really good start on two major projects over the weekend.

First, I got my gift wrapping started, and I loved every second of it!
I love wrapping presents! Growing up, my brothers would have me wrap all of their presents for them before I went to bed on Christmas eve, yes, including my own. Part of the fun of giving someone a gift is wrapping it up all cute. Also, having presents under the tree just makes it feel more festive. I didn't get all of my presents wrapped, but I got a good start on it. 

Second, we got the board and batten up!
This is just a sneak peek of the wall. I still need to finish patching some nail holes and painting, but it's almost done and it's looking so good! I'm really excited to show you the finished product! And if I've played my cards right, hopefully you will be seeing a pretty new pendant light hanging over that table after Christmas. Keep your fingers crossed for me!


  1. Love the gift wrapping it's so festive & the board & batten looks great! Cant wait to see more pics:)

  2. You are a fantastic wrapper! Those presents are gorgeous!! Can't wait to see the whole board and batten reveal. Have fun in Texas!

  3. Yes, wrapping is so much fun and yours look awesome! Can't wait to see more of the board and batten..

  4. I totally hear ya on the to-do list! It's never ending! But wrapping is the best! Nothing better than getting a gorgeous pressie! (c;

  5. I love your wrapping so much! I'm planning to use the huge roll of kraft paper I have, but now I think I need to add some pizazz. Wrapping is not my jam. But you rock it.

    Also, I'm loving your board and batten. Just lovely!

  6. Wow! You did such a cute job on the wrapping! So festive! Good luck with all the holiday business, doll! I feel ya!
