I know that the photos are not much to look at (thank you iphone) but it gives you the idea!

Tonight I am trying to find the motivation to pack for the Thanksgiving holidays. Currently I am snuggled in my Anthropologie comforter watching television on my laptop. You see, I do not have cable, and the 10 inch tv that I do own resides in my closet. It is useful for watching the weather, as long as I hold the bunny ears towards the window and don't move.

I know I was supposed to post Christmas decor today, but I am too tired to do it after all of the cooking. I will leave you with some cute x-mas decor from around the internet:
