Exciting weekend here: tree cut and up, lil shoppin', lots of food, few decorations. I know, how the heck do we have time, right?
We had two very clear goals in mind when we decided to go cut down our tree: 1) get to the farm when it's not busy; and b) find one taller than me. No tape measure, we're just wingin' it. Turned out pretty alright.
Besides the leaning topper, which The Hubs calls and I quote "it's natural tilt," I dig it.
I still love the black and silver theme, but this year we added green. There's already so much green in the rest of the common areas, it just made sense to tie it in...besides that's what lazy decorator does.
Considering this is the largest tree we've ever had, we are a little light on the trimmings. Who knew a 9 1/2 ft tree would need that many ornaments?
Preparing our mini-Thanksgiving dinner and decorating the tree mentally and physically exhausted me, so for now I basically just added to our Fall Mantle.
Of course I'll be adding and changing things as the month goes on, but I'm definitely on the right track.
Here's The Hubs doin' all the dirty work. <3
The dining room chair just wasn't cutting it this year.
