My wife and I are in the process of repainting and redecorating my daughter's room for her. She is growing up too quickly for me, but that's a post for another day! While updating her room for her, she's wanting a new lamp, so my wife and I head out to Hobby Lobby to begin the search.

Upon walking into Hobby Lobby, you are immediately hit with Thanksgiving decorations and turn the corner and its full on Christmas! Now, I really wasn't surprised by this, but what I was surprised with was the amount of Christmas stuff that is already out and readily available! Now don't take me writing this post the wrong way in that I dislike Christmas, it's the opposite. I really love and enjoy Christmas, but it's August! I personally think its way too early to sell Christmas, I'd be okay with beginning to see Christmas decorations sold in late October!

I can see the stores side of things too because Christmas is big business for them. Now Hobby Lobby isn't the only store this way either because we ended up at Garden Ridge on Troup Hwy. and they too had a ton of Christmas trees out too!
