Tree Hunt

Yesterday we had some abnormally gorgeous weather for this time of year. Since it was such a nice day, we decided to go and pick out our christmas tree. We went to this little tree farm not far from the house, because you are allowed to search through the mini forest and cut down the tree of your choice. I’m all about new experiences and making new traditions, so with saw (and camara) in hand we (T, her Mom and I) went trekking through the thicket of trees.

And guess what….It was definitely not as simple as I thought it was going to be! There were hundreds of trees to pick from! And that was only the one section that contained only one species, there were at least three or four other sections of trees! Yowza!

It took us forever to find a tree that we all liked. If it was a good height, it wasn’t a good shape. If it was a good shape, it wasn’t a good height. Who knew picking a tree could be so challenging. After an hour or so of searching, we finally found one that was good enough to take home (or maybe it wasn’t, we were just so tired of walking up and down the steep hill that it looked real good to us). T cut it down and lugged it back to the building where it was measured (7 feet at $6 a foot! Yikes!), bundled, and tied to the top of the truck. Regardless of the price, it was a fun experience.

The tree we finally decided on.

Turkey Day in Review

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and that means lots of food, lots of family, lots of chaos, and lots of stress! Thanksgiving isn’t much of a big deal for me. After all you spend hours of cooking and cleaning to prepare, all to have everyone leave after an hour or so. It’s just not worth the aggravation, but year after year we do it anyways (that’s another check for the insane column). Before the family chaos began T and I spent some family time with the furbabies in the backyard. It was a gorgeous day after all, so we both sat on a blanket and played catch with the dogs and just relaxed. Hopefully by next Thanksgiving we’ll have a human baby to share the craziness and the love with!

After everyone left, T and I decided to go grab a movie to watch before I had to leave for work. Unfortunately, not a single movie place was open! I always forget that we live in the country and people close their businesses to spend time with their families. So, we stopped and got some take-out and sat in the dark corner of the parking lot. We ate and listened to some Holiday music and just enjoyed the peacefulness of being alone. We’re so corny sometimes 🙂

Playing Catch Up

Wow! I seriously need to get more serious about this blog. It saddens me that I do not post nearly as much as I would like to. Hopefully during winter break I will have much more time to post! But since it has been SO l0ng since I have last posted, it’s time to recall the past weeks events, for those who are interested 🙂

October 30th was my birthday! Yay! I love my birthday! That day T and I, along with our good friend Rob drove to Atlantic City to see Evanescence in concert! The tickets were really T’s early Christmas present from her Mom, but I like them too, so it was a win/win. The concert was amazing despite the ignorant little teenyboppers trying to push their way up to the front! Oh and did I mention the tickets were “Standing Room Only”! That was terrible! We stood for five and a half hours! My back hurt so bad by the end of the show. Even though we were really close to the stage, the whole standing forever thing made me cranky. Ha-Ha!

Some pictures from the concert:

After the concert, we decided to drive up to Massachusetts and spend Halloween in Salem! It was incredible up there! We all had a great time. I would really like to go there again in the future.

Other than that, not much else has gone on here in the realm of the delightfully insane. But I am making a promise to myself to blog more often! Really… I’ll try 🙂
