Finally got the first few presents under the tree.  

(Mr. Present-Unwrapper has been caught in the action.)

Tulle puts the best finishing touches on a present!  It’s soft and sweet, not to mention… CHEAP.  I got a roll from Michaels for a few dollars and it seems endless. 

Last weekend, we visited the James Island Festival of Lights with some great friends.  We go every year and, while not much changes from year to year, it’s always a fun way to get in the Christmas spirit.  

(I may or may not having purchased the furry one a “Winston’s First Christmas” ornament from Santa’s Village.)

Meanwhile, on the organizational front… I’ve been filling up my Graphic Image planner with the most important dates.  Y’all, I’m getting married in a little over four months.  When did that happen?

Oh, and a fun hibachi dinner with friends for my MOH’s fiance’s 27th birthday.  I have not had hibachi in years and literally ate out of my to-go box all weekend long.  I think I’m set for another few years.  

Mel (Gibson) was our chef.  He was too funny!

Happy Tuesday.  Happy seven days ’til Christmas!

    I've lived here for almost 4 years and still have not gone to the festival of lights. The traffic totally turns me off to it, although, it looks fun!

    The presents look gorgeous! My puppy has been chewing holes in the corners of mine, he's not quite sure what to make of all the decorations!

    I never thought of using tulle- what a good idea! We can't put our gifts under the tree- our new puppy will eat them in minutes! So they're staying on the table near the tree this year
