Guest Post: Twas Five Days Before Christmas...{Meg From Henning Love}

12/20/2011

 Hi The Short and Sweet of It Readers! I'm Meg from henning love and so giddy to be swapping with Alexa today.  Today for you, a special treat, we are both spreading some holiday cheer titled, Twas 5 Nights Before Christmas. Why 5 nights because I highly doubt any of you would read a blog post on Christmas Eve if we titled it, Twas the Night Before Christmas. I would hope that evening are celebrating and are surrounded by your friends and family. 
In order to write this post, I have been taking photos of Christmas decorations around southern California (or at least in the area that I live in). 
First, I will start with the tree finally decorated. I told you about the three stores we had to hit up before we finally picked out the perfect tree. I waited for this post to reveal our decorated tree. Our Christmas Tree 2011
And a few of my favorite ornaments
Another Christmas favorite is the lights down at the Mission Inn in Riverside. If any of you have seen the Mission Inn, if you saw the most recent season of Bachelor Pad when Blake and Erika when on that really really awkward date, when you saw the Mission Inn. Since I was there during the day, I was able to showcase the variety of decorations displayed all around the Mission Inn.
And as I was walking around taking photos, this sweet older woman forced me to sit in Santa's sleigh
I saw this lovely ribbon covered Christmas tree.
Then last Wednesday our church had their Christmas program that was suppose to start at 7pm. However, we were sitting there and it still hadn't started by 7:20pm and the fog machine was running. Well the fog machine apparently set off the fire alarm and because of fire code all about 2,000 of us had to get up and leave the building. Anyways as we were waiting to be allowed back in the church had set up some fun winter or Christmas backgrounds to take funny photos in front of, accessories were even included, so my friends and I of course had to get some photos. See the funniness?
We decided to do a cheesy prom type of photo. I think we succeeded.
So this is Twas 5 Nights Before Christmas.. henning love and The Short and Sweet of It style, hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for stopping by Meg, be sure to check out her blog everyday! Isn't she just too cute?
