Yes, I bought an Elf on the Shelf today. Yes, I am almost thirty years old. No, I do not have any children. And yes, I realize Elf on the Shelf is meant for children. Oh, and we have named him JJ, also known as Jolly Jingle.
This is the first year that I will be in my own home for Christmas and I really want to step-up my holiday decorations (bigger christmas tree, a lot more decorations, and an elf on the shelf). Why Elf on the Shelf? Two reasons.
1. The boyfriend I are always playing little jokes, etc. on each other and I thought JJ might be kind of fun during the holidays.
2. Last Christmas, I kept seeing all these really great instagram photos of Elf on the Shelf and I too wanted to take some.
Anyways, that's all I got. The truth is, I'm really just a big kid at heart.
