Balls deep


Balls.  Christmas balls.  EVERYWHERE!!!!

My estimate on the ball damage:

50 balls on the main tree.

20 balls on the kitchen garland.

30 balls between the 2 small trees in front of our door.

15 GIANT balls on our mailbox garland.

12 balls in my flower arrangement.

15 balls on our wreath.

50 balls to assemble my floating ornament tree attached to the chandelier.

GRAND TOTAL: 192 BALLS.

Excessive?  I think not.

Here is my progress on the house so far…I say so far because, isn’t there always potential for MORE!??

Why yes….that IS Channing Tatum on my TV.

There you have it!  TADA!

Now what else should I do?!

Glad you stopped by to see my Christmas psychosis.

It has begun…


The sparklification of our home for christmas. I freaking love christmas decorations!!!! If you’ve met my family, you know that I am genetically predisposed to have obsessive compulsive christmas decorating disorder. My dad owns more christmas decorations than wal mart. We’re talking the full monty people…giant inflatable santas, snow globes 7 feet tall, electronic moving reindeer for the yard. It’s bananas. And don’t get me started on my auntie, dad’s sister. Her house looks like Miss Clause decorated it! It’s the most beautiful detail oriented christmas wonderland!

So here I am…with all those Christmas genes running throughout my 5’4 body rip roaring to be let loose every november!

Here is my first Christmas experiment this year:

I will post the full shebang later on in the week when everything is complete!

I hope you’re getting excited about Christmas too!

XOXO

November 17th


It’s a date that I hold near and dear to my heart.  It’s suicide survivors day.  I am a survivor of a tragic event in my family, and all of my current family members are survivors.  

I’d like to take this time to reach out to the people out there I keep in touch with on a regular basis, or to those of you who simply like to follow me and stay quiet.  🙂  

PLEASE know if you’re a survivor, you’re not alone.  Reach back out to me.  Email me at birminghambellblog@gmail.com or comment below if you want.  I will keep emails between you and I only.  I would love to have others to connect to that are in the same boat as myself.  Send me resources…whatever you would like really!!

XOXO
