It's Monday again
Yeah Santa ended up in the living room. I think he was a nice addition.
Sadly he was put in his proper place on Sunday. Womp womp.
When I finally did decide to get out of bed, Christopher and I went to the lake for a little bit and then headed to town (I know saying that makes me sound so country--but I call any place that is not Somerville "town") to get Christmas lights. Umm holy cockballs people. Christmas lights are not cheap. Our house is pretty big, but due to my lack of "measuring sense" and reality in general, I didn't think it would take "that" many lights or that they would cost "that" much. About $350 later I concluded "that" was all a crock o' shit and I was ready to puke. I have a hard time spending a lot of money (yes I'm a woman and I just said that). Even though Christopher was trying his best to convince me it was a good "investment", I still didn't like it and was still trying to convince him to put everything back as the cashier was checking us out.
Such a beautiful night at the lake.
I admit the lights look spectacular, and although I still cringe at how much they cost, I do believe it was worth it. I also plan to leave those lights up for a long long time. Maybe even year round. Don't be surprised if you drive by our house next summer and they are still up. You've been warned.
Hard at work...with a Heineken! Btw yes he's wearing an Alabama hat. And is a Longhorn fan. And is in love with an Aggie. Ironic, no? I think it's just to spite me. Oh wait, my team is the ONLY team that beat Alabama this year! He does look good in it though ;)
Dear Texas, it is December. NOT July. Calm the eff down with the heat and send us some Christmas weather damnit! Please and Thank You.
We finally got Santa in his place, and this is what I find Goober #1 doing. Yup, he's mine.
And Goober #2 was all up in there like I didn't spend an hour wrapping those lights! Just a little FYI info for yall, that is an old ass windmill that Christopher found in the country at his family's land. He saw it and said, "We could wrap lights around that and make it a tree for Christmas!!" I was so proud :)
This is what it looks like in the dark. Love. It.
Happy Merry Christmas Holidays!
