Back to Reality

You know sometimes there is time to decorate, read magazines and blog about pretty things and other times my weekend is spent catching up on laundry, friends, family and (thinking about) cleaning.

After a 2 1/2 week post Christmas vacation, I thought maybe I should get around to taking down the tree this weekend:

Just keeping it real, folks :)

I hope your weekend was lovely,

p.s. A huge happy 30th birthday to my favourite brother!! Love you lots :)

  1. I know exactly what you mean:-). I hope your weekend was great too and happy b'day to your brother!

  2. ha! xmas tree is still up. i guess i should start working on that!

  3. i helped my sister-in-law take down hers today!

  4. jillian and Shannon - I'm glad I'm not the only one!

  5. Nice picture of Mike and Steven!!! Glad to hear that you took your tree down, after all is is January already.

  6. I hate getting back to reality after the vacation. Especially with this awful weather here. I hear it's mild in Edmonton!

  7. yeah, I guess it was about time! January is just one of those months though - hard to get motivated with turkey brain and mountains of snow to shovel :)

  8. totally relate!

    one knew someone who had hers up so long..she transitioned it into an easter tree!!

  9. Shannon - you're right we've been having a bit of warm weather (hovering around zero) lately. Edmonton is never warmer than TO!


comments make me happy : )
