Jensey Loves Christmas in July!

23rd July 2016

I can’t believe it’s been a year since our housewarming party! And I can’t believe I still haven’t shared photos of our new hooooome!!! How long can you still call your home “new?” :)

Last year, we decided to throw a Christmas in July housewarming party. Cute, right? The best thing about it was that it’d been a good year and a half since we’d seen our decorations since we didn’t decorate our apartment the year before we moved. The sad part was not being excited to un-decorate in August and then pull it all back out again 3 months later! I’m usually so excited to decorate, but seeing it just a few months ago took some of that away.

This was our first real party we’ve thrown together and will likely be our last. I learned that while I love the *idea* of throwing a party in my home, I kinda didn’t love it. :/ I felt like I didn’t spend enough time with everyone and the week leading up was really stressful… Throw in a load of family drama and it wasn’t the easy-peasy evening I was hoping for. BUT everyone seemed to have a good time, and that’s all that matters! And we got to show off our pretty living room, which I’m still obsessed with. <3

See our lil’ dino friend in the back yard? He’s maaaaaybe my favorite holiday decoration at the moment!

    Hi Jensey,

    Beautiful home! I hope this isn’t a silly question, but the two nice lamps you have sitting on that console table, where did you plug them in?

      Hi Jo, thanks for commenting! :)

      We actually have a floor outlet under the sofa table- We built our home and it was an option to add on before they laid the foundation. :)
