    Disappointed? OMG. How could one be disappointed when you’re writing the things that bounce around in my own head? You cause me to laugh at myself. Or, as I tell my own Self, laugh WITH myself, not at myself. Uh-huh.

    Someday Paul is going to try to convince you that he’s your Voice of Reason. But, my dear, funny friend. Always listen to your Self!

    The holidays are what you make of them. And it seems yours are always memorable!
    Merry Christmas.

    Hi Victoria! I enjoyed watching your video (from last year?) on HomeTalk (?). It was fun to see you “in person” after reading your very funny and clever and informative blog posts. I have the same ribbon that you made those bows out of (that you sent your mom out to try to find more of in her town.).

    I stumbled upon your blog through a pinterest pin on how to make a bow (thanks, by the way, it totally worked!). I LOVE your blog, LOVE the way you write (you’re quite hilarious!) and LOVE your style! Keep up the good work and Merry Christmas!! 😀

    Love your post. And I love the mirror. I, too, have the couple dozen boxes of Christmas “stuff”. And I am taking back a couple items I bought this season but did not use. I am paring down slowly on what I actually need and use as a now single person household. I am thinking of paring even more as I may not even do the big family Xmas next year. Too much work and I’m not sure the family enjoys it as they all are being pulled to the in laws and their own wants for the holiday. Next year, I may do my own thing just for me…I may put all the stuff up or I may minimalize, but a “just for me” season next year. Of course, minimalize to me is only 12 storage boxes displayed not 24! Just do what makes you happy and allow yourself the ability to change your mind on what that “happy” is.

    I wouldn’t care if there wasn’t the first Christmas decoration in your house. I read your blog because you are so funny. Angst because this year there’s not the preponderance that there was last year is as funny when you do it as was the excitement last Christmas.
    Dying to find out how the kitchen is going to turn out, hee hee.

    Too much!!! All the bows. balls and greenery is a complete overkill. I think you need to subscribe to the less is more concept.

    HOW have I missed you all these years? As I sit here in a mess of my “nod to Mardi Gras” decor ( I NEVER decorate for Mardi Gras)…and I googled “how to make a bow” (because I always need a reminder)…and there was your blog. You.Are.Hysterical….and Real. I don’t know you but I LOVE you. 💜💛💚
