They were here in September,
and I was at school!
So not fair.
Mark worked from home...
truck was here with stylists & photographers from 9-3,
so the pics in here are new to me too! ;)
I honestly couldn't find our living room,
or my bedroom,
or my dining room.
Our rooms are throughout the magazine...
They use products advertisers are selling, and staged them in our rooms...
the living room, kitchen, kid's bath, dining room, library, our master, outside, and my studio.
It's kind of a "Where's Waldo" game we've been playing as a family...
or "What in this picture is really in our home?"
My neighbor walked through our home with magazine in hand and played the game.
It's pretty funny actually.
They were an amazing team.
Everything in our home was put back in order.
They mixed things up a bit, and it was fun to see what they put here and there.
Our home is nowhere near magazine worthy now.
The tree is up.
I'm sitting near it and tingly & itchy from head to toe.
Ears are clogged, and nose too.
I think this may be the last year for a live tree.
I hate allergies.
Anyway...an 8 foot ladder is propped nearby,
Just in case I get the urge to clean the rest of the ceiling.
80% of the ornaments are on the tree,
75% of the decorations are up...
and the irony is I'm not phased by it one bit.
I'll get to it,
sometime before a big party here on Friday.
Four more days of school.
Four more days teaching reading.
Four more days with kids I've come to absolutely adore.
Four more days to tidy up the loose ends on this position,
Four more days to meet with the Art teacher during plan periods,
Five more days until a Nutcracker birthday party for Sofi...
I think I'm the big nut who hopefully won't crack while getting everything done!
Time to lose myself on Pinterest for a bit so I can forget it all....
