a day with tita karmie

today was planned to be uneventful...until my older sister karmie called me. she's been hounding me for the last month to come over to her house and check out her christmas tree. i begged for a description, but she denied me. she simply said, "come over now, it's ghetto fabulous." so that i did. i have to admit, i was curious. if her christmas tree is in any way a reflection of herself, i knew it was going to be loud and obnoxious. that, it was. here it is...it was all that i expected and more. karmie said that it looked even better at night when the green lights would reflect off the white tree. stunning, simply stunning. so we started off the morning at her house, talking and taking in the beauty that was the tree. then with girls in tow, we went to eat lunch nearby. we came back, and the mabster was slowly winding down. so tita karmie started a fire in her den...yes, you've read that right, IN. HER. DEN. her house is the bomb diggity, no doubt! it was built in the 1960s and has a fire pit in the middle of the den. it straight up looks like the brady bunch house, but with peace corp decor of foreign travels. it's big, open, and awesome. tita karmie propped up the mabster's feet by the fire, and for a minute, i almost thought it'd be cool to roast some marshmallows.we love going over to her house. it's just the perfect kind of change of scenery, and for some reason, her house just makes me feel so calm and euphoric. we all practically fell asleep on her monster couch. next thing i know, we're home and it's 4:30pm. it was an uneventful eventful day if that makes sense, but i really did enjoy it.

Only Karmie would buy an all-white tree - LOVE it! I MUST see it in all its glory in person, though.
