AT Syle Cure #11: Set the Date

​​One of my favorite blogs is Apartment Therapy. For the month of November they’re doing a Style Cure room makeover challenge to help you prepare for the holidays. I’m going to makeover our bedroom – while it’s not really a room that will get a lot of visibility from guests I think having a “safe” place to come back to for family overload recovery will be very beneficial. :)

#11: Choose a Date for a Holiday Get Together at Your Place.

I don’t have an exact date set, but I know what event I want  my room to be ready for… Thanxmas!

A long, long time ago – 2008 to be exact – a group of friends came together at the end of the semester to celebrate the holidays before returning to their designated hometowns for the year. We dubbed it Thanxmas and verily it was good.

AT Syle Cure #11: Set the Date | The Wilson BuzzNumber of people in this photo that I still keep in close contact with? Two. To be fair, two of the others were more my roommate’s friends rather than mine, and the other two I wasn’t close with even then. I’m still FB friends with all of them, though!! If you are my Facebook friend, and knew me back in 2008, the full album is worth checking out.

Anyway, for whatever reason we didn’t do it again. Even though we all had a good time! Fast forward – good God – five years and Mr. T and I are now married and are new homeowners. Geeze…2008 me wouldn’t believe it. lol! We decided to resurrect Thanxmas. Very few (if any…there may have been zero) people from the original gathering made it, but we still had a packed house and lots of delicious food.

AT Syle Cure #11: Set the Date | The Wilson BuzzI didn’t even make an album for Thanxmas 2013!! What a tragedy! There are about twenty or so pictures that I tagged at the event, but they’re all lumped in my huge “mobile uploads” folder on Facebook. And none of them are very good. *sad trombone* I’ve got to get better at taking pictures! I think a photo booth setup will be mandatory at all future events.

It’s hard to plan things anymore. People are crazy busy. And five of my closest friends have moved out of state. And not like one state over – like across the country. The closest are in Colorado and that still requires at least a long weekend to visit. I hate them all. Tennessee is the best state and M’boro is the best city – Nashville is 2nd. No one should ever leave. 8P

While a master bedroom isn’t usually the room people spend a lot of time in while visiting you, you bet you booties that if I get this Style Cure finished and my bedroom looks awesome in time for the party I’ll be taking EVERYONE in there to get a look. Especially considering how janky our living room will be. lol!

At any rate – that’s The Event that this will be leading up to. The votes are still going for which day in December it will take place on (so far Dec 5 is winning) but I think this whole Style Cure is scheduled to be done by Thanksgiving, so I should be good to go.
