Two weeks ago, David and I decided to go pick out our Christmas tree after his second final. Only, we couldn't wait that long! Full of excitement for the SEC Championship yesterday, it made studying Friday night very difficult. SO we went on a much needed study break for David, and picked out the perfect tree!
First, I got a fresh wreath at Trader Joes! It was a great deal and is so pretty on our porch!
Then we went over Home Depot to start our little adventure. We searched and searched before heading across the street to Lowe's. We untied trees and spun several of them around before we found our little angel. And she's perfect.
I asked the man who was going to trim her up for us if he could saw just a half inch of the trunk off for me. He looked at me like I was crazy! Little did he know I was going to make an ornament out of it! I had seen the idea on Pinterest and was determined. And now, David and I have a little reminder of our first Christmas tree!
David tied her to our roof and off we went!
I watched Christmas in Rockefeller Center, strung the lights, hung ornaments, and drank hot chocolate.
And lastly, put a bow on top!
What was really fun about the process was looking through all of the ornaments David and I have, which is not many! From visiting the Alamo with my Dad a couple summers ago, to an ornament made entirely with buttons from my Gramma's collection, and our honeymoon, the memories were good.
Lastly, my Grandmother had given me her tree skirt. She quilted it herself and I love it. It added the perfect touch to our little tree.
