Anyone else living life without a fireplace?
Where in the H-E-double hockey sticks to you hang your stockings?
I’ve tried our armoire…but, let’s be real, I don’t want anything blocking Vanderpump Rules. And moving the stockings each time I want to watch the tube…nahh! I’m good.
How does Santa get into your house? When Bay was about 4-ish years old we had to leave a key to our house tied around the door knob…on the outside. Beaucse we didn’t have a chimeny back then either. I’m telling you, the stuggle is real.
Last year I said fuck it, and didn’t hang stockings at all. It was kinda sad, really.
Christmas morning I chucked Bay’s stocking across the living room floor next to the tree. DONE!
This year though, I vowed to hang the damn stockings. I mean, let me be 100% honest….the ol man comes down the chimney (I mean front door…remember – NO fireplace lol) in 12 days and we still don’t have a single ornament on our tree. I did tie a pretty bow on the top. And strung about 2 grand lights.
I’ve got this weird minimal Christmas vibe that I can’t shake. I want everything to be clean and simple.
But, I really, really wanted a place to stick our stockings.
I went to Pinterest and searched “ways to hang stockings” and about 8,237 DIY blanket ladders popped up. Some say $10 ladder. Or you don’t need a man to make this. Others said, just buy the damn ladder and call it a day. I pinned about 25. You can check them out here: DIY blanket ladder Pinterest
I printed them all out. Waited till Cory was in a really good mood….about 5 bud lights deep, then showed him my idea. We was on the fence….haha.
