It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

Growing up when Christmas time came my mom literally decked our halls.

She went all out with decor and I know a little bit of that gene was passed down to me. I love Christmas decorations; they add a little something extra to the winter season. This weekend I'm hosting my first ever Bod Squad Brunch at our condo so I picked up a few things yesterday to get ready for the party!

:: Bookshelf Words of Wisdom ::

Two sayings that perfectly sum up how I feel about the holidays.

:: Advent calendar ::

My mom bought me this in October because they usually sell out quickly at Costco! It took all my willpower not to open this ahead of time. They have giant Lindt chocolate treats inside. This little bear is one of the smaller treats! #yum

:: Quinoa flour ::

Great for holiday baking – I just substitute for all purpose.

:: Ceiling snow flakes ::

Great for small spaces to keep decorations up and out of the way!

:: TV Fireplace ::

Nothing beats the real thing but this will do for now! I attach a cord to my computer and play this youtube fire place recording.

:: Star lights on the balcony ::

If you look closely you can see these little lights are star shaped!! A nice subtle change from the typical.
