Why I Won't be Participating in the Christmas Home Tour

On Monday Boomama is hosting a bloggy Christmas Home Tour. This is where everyone with a blog can show off what their house looks like during the holidays.
I shall not be taking part. I'd like to, but I think I might get kicked out. Even by a sweet Southern Gal.
See, I'm not real good at decorating. In any season.

Let me prove it.

This is the extent of my Christmas decorations. Isn't it festive?

I think it really switches it up from the spring decor which is next picture. Notice the beautiful daisies and spring-y bucket. Look out Martha Stewart.

This is also the summer decor because we really don't want to get too carried away.

This last picture is of my fall decor. I really don't like fall because it means that winter is coming. So in protest of the season, there are no flowers.

Yep, I'm a decorating fool!

Merry Christmas.

THAT.IS.HILARIOUS. Your blog is the funniest, I need to advertise for you because it's SO good!

HA HA HA HA!!! You are TOO funny! Sometimes it amazes me that we're sisters. Our house looks like Christmas exploded inside it. I must admit I'm too scared to count how many snowmen I have and I just can't seem to stop buying more...

Hope you're all feeling better. Nice to know you don't lose your sense of humour when you're sick!

Well... I hate to admit it but the only reason that I have Christmas lights outside is because I have kind and fun friends who came and put them up for me.

Here's some other ways of viewing your Christmas decorations:
*Zen Christmas
*Minimalistic Christmas
*Ultramodern Chic
*Anti-materialistic Christmas
*Real Simple Holidays (wonder if the magazine people know about you?)

Ahh... Christmas decorations have to be taken down... think of all the time that you saved yourself for January.

Thank you for the laugh! We are in the midst of putting in new flooring. Our sum total of Xmas this year is a 2' artificial tree...that's it...

Visiting from Heather's EO!

This is very funny! Just call yourself a minimalist. It has more cache.

Heather of the EO said...

I love you even more now. This is so exactly how I am!

Just last night we were at a friend's house. She has all this fancy, harvesty, halloweeny stuff up around her house. My boys were totally in awe. "what's THAT?" "what's that pumpkin doing on that table???"

I said, "Oh guys, these are called decorations. You don't know because your mom doesn't have any."
