the hunt

posted on: Wednesday, December 7, 2011

After the first tree turned out to be a bust (literally). We went on the Christmas tree hunt again.

We were forced to do the unthinkable.

We bought a tree.

Blasphemy, I know.

We live in Montana and can't scrape up a Montana Christmas Tree.

But this one is probably from China anyway.


no, really.

But time is limited, the days are short, and December is here and we needed a tree like I need some freaking caffeine.  

Home Depot and Lowe's were pitted against each other, and while we scanned both meager selections Lowe's ended up winning the battle.

Better luck next time Home of the Depot.

It was our first for a lot of reasons:
First "bought" tree
First time we had options. Like? no. This one? never. That one? heck no. Over there? Sure. I am freezing..
First tree we didn't have to drag through the snow for what seemed like miles.
First tree that was "bagged and tagged" for us.
First tree that actually resembled a Christmas Tree.
First tree that needed it branches pushed down due to the torpedo shrink wrap.  

Even though it sits in the corner still undecorated because that's how we roll, it is radiating this smell that makes it feel like Christmas every time I walk into the house.

Project Tree Decorating will begin tonight.

Stay tuned for the deets on this epic event...


  1. Either way, the tree is beautiful! Can't wait to see how you decorate it!

  2. Good luck with project tree decorating. Can't wait to see how it goes!
