So this week for date night we decorated our apartment for Christmas. This is our first Christmas together so I was pretty excited. I really wanted to go all out, but that's expensive. Luckily, we got some free stuff from relatives!
First, I tried to make peppermint hot chocolate. It was disgusting. There was too much peppermint in it and the hot chocolate powder wasn't working. While decorating we watched/listened to the CMA Country Christmas special.
Next, we made a tree skirt. I mean really I made the tree skirt and Adam helped a tiny bit saying, "yes, that looks good." We got the kit at JoAnn Fabrics. I used a glue gun to put the different patterns on the skirt, and burned myself a few times. I really wanted to make a ruffle tree skirt that I saw on Pinterest, but I had a hard time figuring out what I needed while in the store so I gave up. Maybe next year. While I was finishing up the tree skirt Adam put up the 4 foot fiber optic tree that we also got for free from his aunt, the ceramic light up tree from my mom, and the nativity scene we got for Christmas last year from his other aunt.
We then made our stockings together. Again, I wanted to make really nice stockings, but that will have to wait for another year, too. I should probably learn to sew first. Anyway they were just felt stockings and we put our names, some sequins, a snowflake and cute little characters on them. It was fun, but we both burned our fingers with the hot glue again. 1st degree though so we're fine, don't worry.
