A Floridian Christmas Tree in Mississippi!

I was thrilled to pieces the other day to come home and find this gem waiting for me:
A light-up palm tree!
I know how silly they are but I love them. I have no idea why. So when I was in Bealls Florida in October, I told my mom how much I wanted one and she sent one to me last week!
So being Christmas season, I decided to decorate it:
Merry Christmas y'all!
A lovely gold sparkly hummingbird and my "We wish you an MSU Christmas" ornament
I have several others on there including a Gator, a Bully, and some orange and blue streamers!
I also got this fabulous Christmas palm tree 40% off at Bealls in October. Yay for bringing a touch of Florida to Mississippi!

In other Florida Gators are going to the Outback Bowl in Tampa this New Years Day, which is exciting, and my Mississippi State Bulldogs are going to the Gator Bowl in my fabulous hometown of Jacksonville the same day!
I thought Florida would go to the Gator Bowl, SC would go to the Outback Bowl, and Mississippi State would go to the Chick Fil-A Bowl...I feel like Miss. State deserved a "better" bowl than Florida (I hate to say it sorry Gators I love y'all!) since they finished 8-4 and Florida finished 7-5. But hey both of my teams are bowl bound so yay! Who were y'all rooting for in the SEC Championship? I personally was going for Auburn. I love seeing SEC teams in the National Championships!

Happy Monday!

  1. It has a ton to do with how much that team travels and all of those other little things. Plus "better" bowl? They're both on the same day in the same state (a warm, sunny, wonderful one)!

    Oh and love the palm tree - my grandparents do that too. I can't remember the last time they had a real tree!

  2. Okay that tree is PRECIOUS. I love it! and your ornaments are so cute!

  3. oh goodness, i love that light up palm tree! i want oneeee here in VA. ha wishful thinking....

  4. Cute!! My parents have a light up palm tree outside of their house! I love anything with lights! lol. I'm such a Christmas junkie!

  5. The Outback bowl will most certainly be sold out since it's so close to Gainesville. I'm debating going to USF's bowl game in Charlotte.

  6. So I am totally going to Bealls when I am home for Christmas and getting that light up Palm Tree. We need a touch of FL in DC. I also love how you put the basketball shaker in there-very festive!
    We also thought the Gators would be in the Gator Bowl, but we travel well-and will sell out the game. That's why we are in Tampa not Jax. In fact, we bought our tickets last night-ha! I'm hoping for warm weather-I'm sick of this 20 degrees business up here!

  7. Def was not rooting for Auburn. Not a Cam fan.
