Decorating for the Holidays!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
Decorating for the holiday is one of the best events of the year. About a week ago my roommate Kayla and I decided to make our apartment sparkle with the Christmas spirit. We sang our hearts out as we put up random little decorations. The most glamorous part of the decorations were the lights. We lined the ceiling with fun Christmas lights and did a border of lights around the doors. It added that finishing touch to our masterpiece! Oh the joy. Although the apartment was great, the exciting part of the decorations was the set up. I was a bit worried about whether is would all be even and whether our apartment would look tacky. So I decided to use my enthusiasm to my advantage. Because I wasn't sure if Kayla would be consistent with the lights I excitedly volunteered to pin the lights to the ceiling. I was the light woman of the evening. I stood on stools,the counter, and the TV stand for as long as I could. Although the majority of the time I had to walk/shimmy across the top of the couches to pin the lights up. Not having the back of the couches very deep I had to stand right up against the wall to finish the task I had volunteered myself into. Not only did I accomplish in pinning the lights up, but I also succeeded in knocking three pictures off the wall, and the big Asian ball! What a night! Our apartment now looks great and smells like the holidays. My first decorating experience away from home. Ha ha it couldn't have been better. I hope you all enjoyed decorating for the holidays as I did! I will see you all soon!

Very Nice - You are definately a Lee. I am not sure if that's good or bad. But regardless of how straight the lights turned out I am glad you had a great time...they look good from what I can see. Well done.

I remember when you were doing that, cause you couldn't talk to me on the phone! Or online, or something like that?! Love ya!

Funny...I thought the same as Becky when I read this post. I couldn't help but notice some distinctive similarities in characteristics of other family members! I also tend to "volunteer" just to get something done "the best way".
