Mike and I finally got around to having our annual red cup date tonight. Red cups came out last week but things have been crazy around the F&C&S house lately! Red cups officially usher in the Christmas season for me. Though for home decorating I usually stick to the day after Thanksgiving rule, there is no denying that now that I am an actual adult- I have to think about Christmas earlier than that if I want to get everything done.
At Starbucks having a peppermint mocha. It is like Santa in your mouth.
I am usually all for clever rebranding and redesign and this sounds silly but the red cups are now the regular cups with red accents and it bugs me.
I am so excited for Christmas this year but I have a confession. I am not putting up my tree. I love my tree and getting out all my ornaments and things like that make me so happy. But I don’t want to put it up early because we have company coming for Thanksgiving (!) and the tree takes up what little extra room we have. Then we are headed home for Christmas on the 20th! So this year I will be content with a few token decorations and a steaming cup of Christmas Blend until we get to have a real Texas Christmas!
Update on last post: it was spaghetti sauce. Not chili and not soup. When did I realize this? Right after I put the cornbread to go with the chili/soup in the oven.
