Merry Christmas | Uprising at Home | 2016

Well it's happened, the holidays have snuck up to us once again! We're all decorated at home and ready for the festivities with Family. This is our first Christmas in our Georgia home and I wanted to make sure that we were truly feeling the holidays. We introduced the kids to Christmas ornaments since last year we were still packed up and house hunting during Christmas, and so far (Fingers crossed!!) we haven't had any break! I have lets just say...a couple of trees and they all have a bit of a theme going to them. I didn't put all of the ornaments up just in case any of the trees fell over, if you're curious about what I'm referring too, please youtube christmas with a cat, I promise you will not be disappointed. I thought I would share some of our decor and my favorite ornaments. 


I love our dinning room when the sun comes through our windows, especially with all the glittery centerpieces we have reflecting light everywhere. This tree is more of the formal tree so there isn't a ton of sentimental ornaments on it. 

Our front room is still in the works but I do love this tree. It's filled with our fun character ornaments from when we were kids. 

My family loved the looney tunes growing up. My brother used to collect all of the tazmanian devil ornaments and I used to love Tweety bird. This ornament was my favorite. Mostly because of the heart shape and Sylvester as a stuffed toy. I thought it was the cutest, and still do. 

I always have one tree for christmas cards. I hate to see them tossed on a counter and would rather them be displayed as decor instead. 

I couldn't help but show how cute Waffles was being while I snapped pictures of the trees! This next tree is our biggest and by far the more family and sentimental tree. It has all of our family ornaments. My favorite ornament is the first ornament Ryan ever gave to me. He surprised me on my lunch break with it the first year we were dating. It was by far the sweetest gift he's ever gave me and each year I always look for it as the first ornament on the tree. 

We don't do a ton of decorations outside but this wreath that my friends made for me is one of my absolute favorites! It's a cat snowman! He's got a tail!!

I hope that everyone has a very Merry Christmas! Thank you to all of our friends and family for your continued support and for being there for us throughout these past years. We can't wait to share more of our adventures in the coming year!

Uprising at Home

I've been thinking of writing personal blogs for some time now. What's always held me back is that little voice in the back of your mind that thinks,"Why would anyone want to read your blog?" Well, i've decided to tell that voice to cram it. Like most bloggers out there, I'm sure they've had their own insecurities and doubts but yet they have moved on. So with that said, I really don't have much information to share haha. I mostly want to take the time for my clients/future clients to get to know me and for friends and family to get a glimpse into our life, since we are on the other side of the country after all! Well, to start off with, it's FALL! Now, you may be thinking to yourself "A white girl? drinking coffee? wearing boots? its 85 degrees outside?" YES, I am BASIC. Yes YOU are a little yourself too! I must admit, the thought of fall, the sense of it creeping up, the halloween decorations floating around in stores gets me giddy like you would not believe. And of course, I have already started decorating the house and have been burning my favorite fall Bath and Body Works candles! Side note, I could literally write a book on all the reasons I love bath and body works, basic, I know. 

Ok enough early decorations. We're getting ready to head back home to see family, friends and make some new friends next week. I am so excited to head to the beach and watch two people declare their love for each other. Man I'm such a sap! I can't wait it's going to be so much fun! and of course I will be sharing our trip as soon as we're home! Here are some photos from a recent outing with the kids. P.S. if you're sensitive to cuteness I wouldn't continue!
