Ok. So I have the saddest thing in the world to tell you. Are you ready? Here it is.
Last night we decorated our tree. We pulled the bins up out of the basement, dragged them up the stairs, and spent approximately one hour detangling lights. Once those were on, we looked at all of our little ornaments so lovingly wrapped in bubble wrap and made a very hard decision. Since we're going to be packing up all of our worldly belongings just a few days after Christmas, it probably didn't make a lot of sense to unwrap said little ornaments just to have to pack them up again three days later. Probably.
So we did maybe the saddest thing possible. Every year, we get a few new ornaments to add to our collection. This year we got three new nautical themed ones in honor of the new house. So instead of unwrapping all of our old ornaments and adding these three to the mix.....we just hung the new ones.
Yep, you read that right. Our sad little tree just has three measly ornaments on it. Three. It's perhaps the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. :)
So, since I can't have my ornaments out on the tree, I thought I'd do the next best thing and post them here. This is a shot we took last year as we were actually unpacking them all to hang our tree (novel idea, really!) And with that post we did a contest for you all to tell us your favorite ornament and why.
Since we so enjoyed reading your answers last year and I am ESPECIALLY missing my ornaments this year, we thought it would be great fun to do it again. So there you go: leave a note telling us your favorite ornament and why by tomorrow at 12pm EST and we will pick one lucky commenter to receive a $100 gift card to Crate & Barrel. Where we got our three new (sad) little ornaments!!
