I walked into the grocery store with my cart then down four aisles to the candy aisle. And there they were. The marshmallows. A big stack. I looked around me, then at my cart, then back at everyone in the aisle, and then hoped that they wouldn’t judge. Who am I kidding, of course they were going to judge. Some crazy lady was about to wipe the whole store out of marshmallows, and I smiled as I put every last one in my cart. I was trying to think of reasons why it would be acceptable to buy twenty bags of giants marshmallows at one time, and all I could come up with was I’m having one big campfire, duh.
I stood tall, smiled at all the people passing by as they checked out the contents in my cart and let out a chuckle, then made my way to the front of the store. Then standing there in the end of the aisle, stocking items on the shelf; he turns around and is all Girl, where are you going with all my marshmallows. Eeeps, haha umm, I REALLY like marshmallows. What in the world just came out of my mouth? You moron! What happened to your campfire story?! I’m not sure, I wish I could go back in time and write a cheat sheet on my hand. MB,… CAMPFIRE!
This year, because of all the hooplaa, Christmas didn’t really feel like Christmas until it was actually the day of. But that didn’t stop me from decking the halls. Which meant it had to be different and better than last year. Geesh, always trying to out-do myself. And then I was all, YOU’RE GOING DOWN MB. This year I wanted to keep it simple but still warm and cozy. Which of course, meant all white decorations! To start, I loaded the couch up with all of the most cozy cream colored blankets and pillows from Pottery Barn.
My couch=a dream. Seriously, I’m obsessed with it. And it’s charcoal gray. Stop it, don’t act surprised. All that’s missing is some snow outside and hot chocolate. AHEM, mother nature.
For the tree I went with all white porcelain pine cones I got last year on clearance after Christmas at Crate and Barrel. There is no better time to buy all those decorations then right after Christmas, the sales are insane.
What’s that? Back there, you ask?
Oh, yes. That’s Norman. Isn’t he the best?
He loves to hang out. Pun intended.
And, just like myself, he also likes charcoal gray and snow. Err, marshmallows.
Better than last year? I THINK SO!
My Christmas card collection is right by my front door so I can admire it right when I walk in.
Thoughts? Likey? Dislike? How did you decorate this year? Moose? Meese?
