Day After Thanksgiving

One of my favorite days out of the entire year is the day after Thanksgiving. Not because it's "BLACK FRIDAY" no I'm not interested in participating in that mess at all. You will never see me out there fighting the crowds, sitting in traffic, or going without sleep for a department store sale. I would rather go without. I don't like being around chaos and I see crowds as just that (completely unpredictable). It really makes me anxious and frustrated when I'm around that environment. I'm a very orderly and proper individual so chaos drives me mad. I believe people are too arrogant and selfish to be safe shoppers. I hardly see social etiquettes demonstrated these days. That's why I don't really care much for city living.

To tell you the truth I've been longing for a country estate. I wish I had that English cottage or Southern planation style home. With acres of nothingness surrounding me. I could actually hear myself think. My ideal lot would be nothing less than 7-10 acres. Awww, that sounds wonderful. Perhaps I'll ask Papa Noel this year, LOL! He could leave the deed in my stocking (along with keys to the Mercedes SUV I've had my eye on).

Ok, back to the purpose of this post. The reason why I adore the day after Thanksgiving so much is that I get to pull out all my Christmas decorations. I truly love decorating the house for the holidays. The ribbons, lights, and crystal ornaments are all more the reason I'm enchanted with this season. I'm looking forward to a day of decorating and full of Christmas music. Papa Noel left an amazing New Orleans Christmas jazz cd in my husband's stocking last year. I believe I'll pull it out and put it on. Hope you are off to a fantastic holiday season and that y'all didn't eat too much turkey yesterday, LOL!

Ha Ha Ha... love you! I'm with you, 100%, who wants to get up at 3:30 AM and head to the stores to stand in line (without make-up). NO THANKS...I'd rather stay in bed.

Happy Black Friday. I know your house looks amazing! :)

I sooo want to live on an old Southern Plantation! I interned for a photographer in college named Chip Cooper. He was a co-author of a book called 'Silent in the Land'. It's stories and photo's about old homes in the south.

Wow!!! Amy, I'm so envious(in a good way). What an awesome internship. That would have been a dream job. I'm dying to own a southern style plantation (small one). It makes living in the city that more difficult when all I do is day dream of Southern bliss, lol. Perhaps when I retire, yes?
