i feel a little like lily from HIMYM during the holiday.. well actually all the time. but particularly during christmas. she goes above and beyond to christmas everything. and yes i just used christmas as a verb. in my book to christmas, is to put the holiday spirit into everything you see & do. if you've seen the "how lily stole christmas" episode, you know exactly what i'm talking about.
their apartment looks like christmas vomited all over it. and thats what i strive for my apartment to feel like at the holidays. and this year is no different. actually this year is even better, because now i'm married and i've got the mister in the holiday spirit extra early this year! and i'm currently trying to convince him why we should get a headstart on the holiday decorating. this has proved to be a little harder than originally expected. but its a work in progress.
i even caught myself checking out new holiday cds while at target over the weekend and thinking where i had put the ones i currently have in my possession. i need to find them soon, because i can always use a good christmas tune on the way to and from work.
but i thought in light of the fact i can't run home and throw up the tree or tinsel, i could preplan my christmas decorating right here! i hope to make this years decor better than years past, with more tinsel, paper chains, snowflakes and fun.
this year i want a classic, fun christmas. no crazy colors or themes. your basics. greens, reds, whites & a little sparkle. and of course, snowflakes, snowmen, penguins and SANTA CLAUS!
*side note* i realize i misspelled affordable... ehh but i'm too lazy to go back to fix it.
