Show & Tell Tuesday: Christmas Decoration

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I am in the midst of finals week, and boy is it kicking my rear. I am currently accepting love in the forms of coffee & prayers. Hehe :) 

Today, I am linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals to share my Christmas decorations.

Okay, I have to be honest here... 
I am behind the rest of the blogging world, and I haven't got my tree up just yet. (I promise I'm not a grinch, just behind)
I shared this on Friday, but it's still applicable.

On Sunday, I went to put up the tree in my room, and I couldn't find the top of it. I may have shed a few tears, and dramatically said Christmas is ruined. My emotions are all kinds of crazy between the stress of finals and clinic shenanigans. Zack handled my finals induced meltdown with ease (and a few laughs) and promised he would find my tree top & help decorate it before I got back home.
He's a keeper, y'all. 

Since I am in the Christmas spirit, but haven't finished decorating, I am going to share decorations from years past.
My tree "theme" is purple & silver. It's one of my favorite combinations, and I have been buying bits and pieces to decorate it with over the years. I have also added a few items that don't match the tree perfectly ;)

Our family tree has colored lights & it includes our treasured ornaments full of memories from years past. Mom still has the ornament her parents got her from the first Christmas my parents were married. 

When my family is feeling extra festive, we put up a tree on our sun porch. I love how it looks from outside.

Memaw also gets a tree, she loves the blue & silver.

Zack's tree is perfect for him! According to him, the tackier the better. He loves the oversized tinsel, even on his small tree.
We started dating in December, and our first Christmas together I bought him an ornament... 7 years later, and going on 8 Christmases, he has quite the collection.
It's a great way to relive some of our favorite memories when we decorate his tree. 

Speaking of traditions, I can't wait for this yummy breakfast on Christmas Morning!
And I can't wait for this yummy peppermint pie for dessert :)
