scrooge


>>> something strange is happening to me. i'm excited for christmas. i can't wait till christmas. i'm already dreading it being over. this isn't like me. i usually can't stand christmas spirit. i roll my eyes when i see the cheezy wreaths and the premature spindly christmas trees. i cringe at the cookies decorated like ornaments and the little homemade gifts of homemade candy canes. i almost vomit at the sight of rudolph stuffed toys. but this year i'm feeling much unlike myself. i'm excited for christmas. i want to hang mistletoe on every inch of my ceiling (for more than one reason). i want to drink cinnamon hot cocoa and bundle up for walks in the fluffy snow. i want a christmas tree of my own to decorate with sparkly lights. i want to wrap gifts with ribbons and hand them out to everybody. i want to make sugar cookies with red and green sprinkles. and i don't want it to ever end. i will be so sad when christmas is over. i'm a repented scrooge.

*i'll probably end up doing none of these things due to lack of budget, and instead end up watching home alone on repeat and calling it good.

>>> things i like now, because you know, #festive, #duh.

  8. i doubt you will see this, but I have always been a scrooge, but for different reasons than you. I find myself loving Christmas more as I have become a mom. For some reason this year I don't have a huge desire to decorate, but hopefully i'll get in the mood soon. I like your style of decorations you posted here, very simple and not cheesy :)

  9. I used to not like all the Christmas hupla, but it is growing on me. Especially seeing Christmas through the eyes of my children. Well mostly I like it I still don't like the spending hundreds of dollars on family I hardly ever see. If we could just cut out the glutenous shopping I would love it! haha
