Top Two Tuesday - Random Things About You

Happy Tuesday everyone!  The countdown is getting closer for the wedding, only 19 days left! I can't believe how quickly time has gone by this year! It's almost April already. It feels like yesterday that we were in Florida celebrating New Years. Anywho, today's post is for Top Two Tuesday over at The Undomestic Momma.  Today's topic is 2 random facts about you. 
1. I have a penguin Christmas tree that stays up almost year round.  I kid you not! I'm obsessed with penguins as most of my close friends know and quite a few years ago I had maybe 10 penguin ornaments to my name. Every Christmas I would put those ornaments on my parent's tree because I never had one of my own. When I started dating Andrew almost 3 years ago I decided I wanted to have a tree of my own at my townhouse. So we purchased an artificial tree with multicolored lights and that year we purchased about 20 new penguin ornaments. Andrew said that this tree was officially deemed the penguin tree and that no other ornaments could go on it. Every year I probably buy between 5-15 new pieces for the tree, whatever I can find that I don't already have. I'm almost out of space! It's such a hassle to remove each ornament and wrap it carefully in paper and box it up that I usually just leave the tree up year round. Andrew has threatened to chuck it outside or in the trash but I know he won't. When we move I'll probably buy an ornament box keeper and put everything in there so they are safe until next Christmas. 

2. I go to bed every night at 10 pm and if I didn't have to wake up at 7 pm to be at work, I'd probably sleep every day until 10 am. Yes, 12 hours of sleep. I love sleep, and I rarely get a good nights sleep that when I have a chance to really sleep in on the weekends I do. I was reading somewhere that more than 8 hours of sleep can be bad for you, but I rarely every get a full 8 hours that I don't even care! Bring on the sleep!

  7. Cute idea! We had two Christmas trees this year (one red & gold and one family tree). I am hoping next year to add a Gone With the Wind tree! :)
