So we got our tree today.
Boyfriend and I borrowed Boyfriend's Mom's Boyfriend's truck (say that three times fast...), left Splat with Boyfriend's Mom (Shake'n'Bake is at her dad's this weekend), and went to get our awesome-tastic tree.
We picked a beauty.
He's about 7 feet tall (a beautiful fit with star in our eight foot high room), and I believe he's a Balsam Fir.
We've named him Tim and he makes the apartment smell fantastic.
I have enough warm-fuzzies to last me clear through Wednesday.
Tomorrow is decorating day (we have to let Tim open all the way) and I am so super pumped.
Boyfriend surprised me by bringing home more Christmas decorations this morning! Garland(s?) and bows. I am so happy! This year I bought glass balls, a star, and a tree skirt - all of which I have never personally owned before - to add to/significantly improve my Christmas decorations.
Last year's tree was fairly...Charlie Brown-ish.
Anyways, I am super pumped to decorate tomorrow. I've been playing Christmas carols for two days straight now.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere we go.
7 more days!!!
