My First Live Tree

How was your weekend? Hope it was good. I did pretty good with food but got minimal activity in.  I did not wear my bugg and I don't have it on today. Bad Katie J!

On Friday night, my neighbor Lu asked if I could run her to the grocery store so we went and she knew I had never had a live Christmas tree so she got one for me. It is super cute! It is about 3' tall. When I was a kid, we had a fake one and then when I moved out, I travelled with my family during the holidays and then after my dad died, we were gone so this is the 1st actual live tree I have ever had and I am 44 years old! I will take a picture of it tomorrow as the "before" and then once I decorate it I will do the "after". I am thinking all one color of ornaments (can we say OCD?) but I am undecided.

As I mentioned yesterday, I found some cute holiday dishes that I made that I had forgotten about. It was fun taking out the decorations. Instead of looking at it from the "something I have to do" perspective I was in the moment and enjoyed the rediscovery. It was refreshing and renewing! Until next time...

p.s. The giveaway is on Wednesday. You still have time!


  1. We have all blue and white ornaments on our tree. I love it!

  2. can't wait to see pics of your tree! :)

  3. How sweet that she bought you the tree - you don't have to be a kid to enjoy a live Christmas tree! Looking forward to seeing how you end up decorating it. :)

  4. Can't wait to see your tree!!! I know that you have done it up right!!!! Yay!!!! Happy Holidays! (Nothing like the smell of a tree to put you closer to a festive mood!!!)


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
