Party Time's Over

Mission accomplished...Both Christmas parties are over and they were both huge successes. The office party wasn't near as much fun (how could it be?!?), but everyone had a good time. I am completely exhausted though. I haven't even changed out of my pj's all day. I spent the day doing piles and piles of laundry and addressing Christmas cards. If you'd like one, send my your address and I'll pop it in the mail. They came out so cute!

So what does tomorrow hold? WORK!!! I am both excited and nervous to be starting work tomorrow. I know I'll enjoy it, but I also know I'll miss all the time I have been so spoiled with to do pretty much what I want (including blogging). I'll still be here, but I don't know if I'll be able to post and check up on all my bloggy friends as often.

I am adding some pictures of my mantles...partly to show you, but partly to document what they look like, so I can do it again next year :)

Have a great Monday, I sure hope I do!!!

here's the keeping room:

the living room:

outside fireplace:

Ad just for good measure, I thought I'd share Richard's redneck corner ;) Yes, those are shotgun shell Christmas lights hanging around the bar.

and a close-up of the wreath:
Yes, those are LSU helment lights around the wreath that is hanging around the deer horns. You might be a redneck....

Your mantels look beautiful!! As I was decorating this year, I was mad that I didn't take pictures last year...I couldn't remember how I did my staircases and mantels!!

Richard's redneck corner is a riot....I love the wreath!!

Good luck tomorrow!!
