Wednesday, December 11: Photo-dump. We wanna see those indoor holiday decorations. We know some of y'all's houses could rival any Southern Living or Coastal Living Magazine any day of the week.

Over the last couple of years we have really slacked on our holiday decorations. This year we didn't even put up lights outside. The lack of decorations hasn't made it harder to get in the holiday spirit and for that I'm grateful. Growing up we had a very eclectic Christmas tree. It was like Christmas took a vomit on the tree. Said tree was also unnecessarily huge. After my dad died we started downsizing. We also decided to have a purple and gold tree in honor of him. Purple and gold were his fraternity colors as well as his favorite colors. I just always use that excuse when people come over and ask why are decorations are dark and dreary. Last year we decorated the table up real nice and it looked very Christmas-y. Maybe I'll get around to doing that again. The cold has really just made me want to do nothing but be lazy and sleep.

There ya go. Now I wanna see your houses. And don't forget to use #12dc hashtags so we can find and promote your post easier.
