Happy first Saturday of November! I hope your November is off to a fabulous start!

It’s been a busy first week of November around here! I’m in full-on Christmas decorating mode, and we currently have a crazy mix of fall and Christmas decor around our home.

I think my family feels very confused, and the neighborhood kids were probably wondering why I had a Christmas tree up when they trick-or-treated on Halloween!

The living room tree is up and decorated, and I’m adding more and more Christmassy touches each day! I’m so excited to bring you all the new Christmas ideas and DIYs throughout the season!

Next week, I’ll be revealing our Christmas theme for the year, and I’m loving it!!

On the blog this week I shared 21 ideas that will help you get ready for Christmas right now. The post is full of tips to help you get a jump start on your Christmas planning.

Now on to all the things I’m loving from the week!!
