16 more sleeps until santa gets here, friends. can you believe it? i am beyond behind on my christmas shopping but am in full swing in getting into the holiday spirit. festive caribou holiday drinks + christmas stations on pandora + christmas cookie candles + christmas movies + (spiked) hot chocolate + and so on. i love all these things, but what i love more than most anything is decorating the house and especially the christmas tree.
[b] and i went to the tree lot last sunday when it was a balmy 9 below zero. so our decision was made quickly and soon enough our frasier fur was strapped on top of clifford. we decorated the house that night and listened to christmas music and it was wonderful. [b] left the next day for a work trip and left me put the lights on the tree. it took 2 nights; 1 anxiety attack; several glasses of wine; arm and handfulls of cuts and scrapes and sap and lots of support from #starksthepup i did it. 1430 lights. yes, fourteen hundreded and thirty lights. [last year we had 1600 so i’m feeling a little bit like a slacker. BUT i didn’t blow a fuse this year; so i might consider that a win]
and it looked beautiful. this weekend when [b]s mom and cousin were in town we finished the job and put all the decorations and it was perfect. can’t wait to sit in front of it in the mornings and enjoy my coffee. merry christmas, friends.
