Getting Into the Spirit

We really didn't do much this weekend and that was highly necessary.  Friday night we went to Kabutos for dinner then went to Wal-Mart afterwards.  Exciting I tell you!

Saturday we got things done around the house and I got some Christmas decorations done.  That afternoon we went to our niece's 2nd birthday party.  It was Minnie Mouse themed, too cute!

Sunday I just HAD to get a tree.  We really weren't going to this year because of our holiday plans but we ended up going ahead and doing it.  Our high hopes of a cute Christmas Tree Farm didn't work out when I figured out how far it was and that it wasn't even open.  Instead, we went to Lowes and got our first Christmas tree EVER!

And brought it home on the roof of my car.  Luckily it didn't fall off.  I'm sure the beach towel underneath really helped haha.  

We had fun decorating it.  I got to pull out a bunch of ornaments I had never hung and relive some of my childhood with ornaments Mom had put aside for us.  I decorated most of the rest of the house for Christmas but left the wreath and mailbox for Mom and I to do this weekend...it is our tradition.

Our shutters and front door were painted last week.  I'll do a post on it when it's all completely done.  They came out SO much better than I thought.  This is a custom color that our family has named, "MamaSal Green."  I know they look black but look closely, they are a lil green.  I think they're really classy.

Short week!

We have done the tree farm vs Home Depot tree throughout the years and the HD tree is just as beautiful and fragrant!
