During the usual grocery shopping excursion through Wal-Mart, mom and I noticed that they had their Christmas stuff out. I couldn’t help myself. I HAD to look.
At first I was only going to look. No really! Just take a peek. Not actually buy anything. *maniacal cackle* Of course the Christmas lover in me had other ideas
My ex never did outside lights. And while it’s true I never bugged him about it (I’m not really the nagging kind), I always kind of hoped that my exclamations about everyone elses Christmas lights would give him the hint. I even would say things like “Gee, we should do lights one of these years.” And he would say “It’s too much of a pain or our electrical bill would be too much.” So this year I am going to hang lights on my house by gosh! I got lights and bracket things that I can leave up all year (the brackets not the lights). I even got a buck made of beautiful lights that I will put in my front yard. Oh yeah, and I just might get the matching doe next month.
The shopping extravaganza didn’t stop there, oh no. I got a gorgeous woodland style tree skirt. My tree (which is the most beautiful tree in the world, by the way) is decorated in woodland style. I bought a couple of adorable ornaments, little rubbery decals to put in my big picture window, and some accessories for my snowy village. I’m telling you guys, this Christmas, my house is going to be amazing!
Too soon for Christmas? Maybe. But I was sure excited about the new stuff I got. made me want to put up my tree and all that already. Of course that would be ridiculous. Maybe next weekend though…
What about you guys? Do you go all out for Christmas? I’d love to hear from you!
