So, in general, I don't decorate for seasons/holidays. Mainly because I'm lazy. I like to say it's because I'm a busy girl, and don't have time, but really the reason is because I don't want to spend the time to do it. I am impressed with those people who have lovely decor for each season. Not me, sorry. You come over, and you get the same ol' stuff all year round-- except for Christmas.
I love decorating for Christmas. My house just feels so complete when it is decked out in the red and green, and I really get excited. And a tad bit crazy. Like making sure everyone has the exact same wrapping, except different bows so I know who's is who. Yeah, I know. I promise I'm not really like this with anything else, so don't fear for the sanity of my future children.
Anyway, usually I am a hunting widow the day after Thanksgiving (meaning, I am alone while my hubby is off 'catching' woodland animals), so I usually spend that night putting my tree up all my lonesome, just me and my Frank Sinatra holiday cd. But this year I thought maybe you'd like to join me for the decorating!
This is my first attempt at a stop motion video (and ever posting something on YouTube, this is a big night for me), so don't judge me on my video skills just yet, I'm still learning!
And, PS, No -- that is not dip in my pocket. Who do you think I am? Come on guys! It's a lens cap.
Yeah, I really should. Because the past few posts have been things she showed me. But I couldn't help but share this. If she ever starts her own, I will become completely and utterly uninteresting.
I love JCrew. I really do. And I found out today that at one point in time they had paired up with another thing that I love. Lab puppies. Did you know they used to have a dog line called CrewMutts? Check these pictures out:
It's so ridiculously cute that it hurts my heart a little.
PS Kate Middleton was named as one of the top ten most interesting people by Barbara Walters. Watching it now. Yipee. Can't wait until April 29th! I'm still waiting for my call from the Palace to book me for photos-- the time difference must be what's keeping us from connecting. Must be.
