we have been excited about the holidays for well...an embarrassing long time, finally i got brad on the bandwagon the second weekend of november and he obliged me and we put up our tree. i get really hyper and excited when tree putting up is happening, maybe that should have been one of those pre-marital talks, but we made it through...ho ho ho, or should i say he survived me.
i will say this is the first time in my entire life that our tree has colored lights.
lord help me.
i am a clear lights kinda girl. lots of lights, lots of white. that is all. but then as i was putting up the tree this year and i was low on the white lights brad sweetly offers me the COLORED lights that he had.
gulp. and being a good wife and realizing that this was not a big deal and i needed to really just put my big girl panties on and deal with a tree with colored lights...i did just that. it wasn't easy.
but not before i looked at bessie my best friend who was over helping and giving her the eye like ohhhhhemmmmmmgggggggg. i am about to have to string up these colored lights on the tree and pretend like i like them. then she did a heel to foot in the air hop with delight because her tree is beautiful and white. she's not invited over anymore.
but what do you know? i like the colored lights. i never. maybe it's a love is blind kinda thing but i am not only dealing with it, i am embracing it and i really do think it is great and adds so much to the tree. the house. it's so happy!
all these years i thought i knew so much.
but i needed brad all these years for this girl to have a good tree.
