Things I didn’t share Friday (1/3)
1. MT and I were very low key on New Year’s Eve. After I put Michael to bed, I made a pot roast, and we enjoyed a nice dinner in the dining room. Since I’m not exactly in any condition to be drinking at the moment, I drank what I referred to all night as “fake wine” (or sparkling grape juice). It wasn’t the same as the real thing at all, but I’ll make up for it next year.
2. After our New Year’s Eve dinner, we made some popcorn (mine was drizzled in coconut oil of course) and watched Despicable Me 2. If you’re a fan of the first one but haven’t seen the sequel, you really should because it was absolutely adorable! I just love those Minions.
3. We usually wait to take our Christmas tree and other decorations down for a little bit, but this year, MT and I just couldn’t wait to rip them all down! It’s probably because our house has been in such a state of disarray with the nursery prep, room switcharoos (wow, did I really just use the word “switcharoo”?), and empty boxes all over the place. It feels so good to have the house back in order. However, things are looking kind of bare now, and I’ve been in major decorating/nesting mode as a result.
5. If you’re a makeup lover like me, you may have heard of a little thing called the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I had been absolutely dying to get my hands on it, but I promised myself that I wouldn’t order it until after Christmas. I stuck to it and ordered the palette on Christmas Day. After stalking the UPS truck for several days, it finally arrived earlier this week, and I’m totally in love with it. The colors are gorgeous, and I can see myself using the heck out of it.
Do you take your holiday decorations down right away or do you leave them up for awhile? Has anyone else tried the new Urban Decay palette?
