A New Valentine's Day Tradition

Due to my lack of motivation and just down right laziness, my Christmas tree is still in the corner of my living room.

You wanna know what?  I'm not even trying to hide it...it's actually still in view from my living room window.  I could turn the lights on and we could sit around and sing "Santa Clause is Coming To Town".  Just 10 more months.

In an effort to avoid any more awkwardness of the Christmas tree still being up in February, I did what any person would do...

I undressed it and changed it's outfit.

Introducing the Altman Family 2011 Valentine's Day Tree...



Thank you to all of my wonderful commenters for your support and encouragement.  This would not be possible without you.  

My husband might be sending you hate mail.

One year when we were in the USMC, we couldn't get home for Christmas like we were supposed to. We came home for Valentines Day and this is exactly what my grandma did with her Christmas tree. I love it! It makes my heart happy to remember that time. :-)

Tell your husband if he wants the tree to disappear, he has to stop harboring the spirit of Scrooge! I think your tree is very cute--I'm looking forward to the Easter version!

Mamarazzi said...

Oh. My. Goodness.

I think I love you even more.

For realsies.

I love it! I told Matthew you were considering doing that and he was just happy someone else had their Christmas tree up longer than we did. :)

Dominic wants to cut out "hundreds" of hearts and put them "everywhere in our house" -- he declared that at dinner last night. Matthew choked on his peas. :) We normally don't really celebrate VD. Dominic is highly motivated by VDay for some reason. Chocolate maybe?

JG said...

Um. Yeah. About that. Tell that man to get on the horn next year and take that mess down.

Then again that rivals my laziness as we use the treadmill in our bedroom to throw our dirty clothes onto.

Kelli said...

Vic said...

Steph said...

I think it's cute. I wanted to get a pink tree this year and keep it up through Valentine's Day but the hubby said no. Next year, I think I'll just get one. He'll get over it.

Fresh Mommy said...

Haha, LOVE it!! You totally rock out the Valentine's tree! :)

OK that's cute but I'll be honest...it's making me itch a little knowing its till up. I either need to take a Benadryl or jump on the next flight to Tulsa!

I actually think it's a great idea to keep it up year round and just decorate it with the change of seasons.

Great solution--I love it!

MiMi said...

THAT. IS. AWESOME.

Impulsive Addict said...

LOVE IT!!

Do I need to send you some Saint Patty's day decor? Because I so will. I mean, I don't want any hate mail from Michael but I'm already on his shiz list anyway so what does it matter?

Vivienne said...

OH no you did NOT just do this!

Brandy@YDK said...

ha - that's super fancy.

Brandy@YDK said...

you could decorate it with twilight stuff - just because.

Talk about making lemonade out of lemons! Way to go girl!
Sharing the love, that's what it's all about!

purseblogger said...

Now why didn't I think of that??

Baloney said...

Oh I love your tree!
My first thought, though, was that it took some time and energy to do that and... um... it might have been easier to put the tree away! lol.

Emmy said...

Cute hearts! If only my husband would let me get away with this

Connie said...

Becca said...

This rocks my socks!

I'm voting that you leave it up 365 days a year and decorate accordingly...hell I might just do this myself!
