This year I wasn't thinking of decorating either because 1. We have a bigger apt, but I refuse to store things and take up space for 11 months out of the year, 2. Don't have money to be spending on decorations, and 3. We are not having any Xmas parties at our apt or gatherings so I feel like we can do without. BUT, I couldn't resist on buying the below:
On Monday I was sick and stayed home from work. I was in bed all day until I had my doctor's appointment. After the doctor's appointment I head over to Walgreen's to get my prescription. I had some time to wait before it was done so I ventured down the Xmas aisle. They had a lot of cute stuff that I would have loved to decorate our apartment with, but I contained myself. UNTIL I saw this cute little very glittery Xmas decoration. Since we don't have any Xmas decorations or a tree, I decided that I REALLY wanted to get this. When I looked at the price, I realized that I couldn't walk out of there without it because it was only .99 CENTS! So I purchased this little Xmas tree along with my prescription and made my way home. I set it down in the middle of our coffee table and went straight to bed. When the hubby came home, I knew he would notice it right away since it's the first thing you will see when you walk into our apartment. When the hubby comes to the bedroom to see how I'm doing, I wake up and I immediately ask him "How do you like our Xmas tree?" (in a raspy nasally sickly voice). He starts laughing and says he likes it.
Cha Ching! Point for Mrs. Newlywed Giggles!
Now, people might think it's crazy that I haven't decorated and don't plan on it. We won't be celebrating Xmas in our apt let alone in the state we live in as we will be traveling to CT to my grandmother's. So, to me it wasn't a big deal. But it did make me a little depressed that I had nothing of Xmas up, of course until I bought this little .99 cent tree that is about 4 inches tall. Surprising how that little tree makes me smile every time I see it.
To me, my itty bitty tree is all I need to make my apartment Christmas cheery. :)
