#KmartHoliday Outdoor Decorations for our New House #CBias

This time last year I was heartbroken that we weren’t in our new house. We were told end of October and it kept being pushed back…I wanted to decorate my new home, but it looked like this.

Our house this time last year.

So this year I am happy that we get to decorate the outside! We’re IN TOWN, so people will actually see our house (we were on a dirt road that no one traveled, so no one saw anything back there) and there is a Christmas Decorating Contest in town!!!!! We get to enter it this year!!! I’m excited! We have a pretty good size front yard, room for plenty of decorations!

I was given $150 to go to Kmart and get decorations for outside (you can read my Google+ Story about my shopping experience) and I was able to get 2 multicolored spiral trees, inflatable snowmen on a sled, 2 sets of light up snowmen (they were suppose to go down the sidewalk, but it didn’t look right), lighted garland for our porch and a light sensing timer so we wouldn’t have to go plug it up and unplug it everyday. This is the end result 🙂 Oh and a huge thank you to hubby Jeff for putting everything up for me!!!

Our Kmart decorations 🙂

Light up snowmen along the wall, inflatable snowmen (I really wish the inflatable was brighter 🙁 ) on the sled and our lighted garland

The small spiral tree with a snowman I bought last year when I thought we would be in the house before Christmas...it's been upstairs at my dad's since I bought it.

The light up snowmen are cute, they have scarves on and everything!

Jeff said he wants to buy more stuff to decorate more…add to our new collection of Christmas decorations, now that we have a nice house to decorate!!!! Christmas is my favorite holiday and I always love to go all out, and now that I can, I WILL!!!! Kmart had a lot of nice things to choose from to decorate the outside so I know I’ll go back and get more later!

  1. So awesome that you are able to decorate outside this year! The inflatables always make me feel great when I see them in people’s yards! Nice work!

  2. What fun! We did this shoppertunity too, but for ornaments. We’re decorating our tree tomorrow – can’t wait to add the new ones to the tree!

    Now following, come by and follow me back. 🙂


  3. Enjoy. We had that problem when we bought our house. We so badly wanted to be in by Christmas. It gets more fun each year.

  4. It looks like you were able to get a good bit for your money. I love seeing yard decorated- it’s so fun to drive around and see all of the decorations. Great job!

  5. Your yard looks nice – I love the snowmen!
