Holiday Dresses, Christmas Trees & Gingerbread Houses: Part 2

On Saturday, I went hunting for the perfect Christmas tree.

What constitutes perfect you may ask? Well that’s actually a short list:

1) The perfect tree must be real
2) The perfect tree must be taller than me
3) The perfect tree can’t take up too much room

That last one is always hard for me to abide by though since I love nothing better than a big, rotund Christmas tree!

But this year, I tried my best to go for a skinnier tree that would allow us to move around our apartment with ease. Of course when we got it home and in the tree stand, I started bemoaning the fact that it wasn’t large enough.

But over the past week, it has grown on me and I’ve come to realize that it’s actually the perfect size for our petite home. Now we just need to finish decorating it!

Every outing turns into an impromptu photo shoot with my boyfriend

My sister stakes her claim

The winner!

Phew, it fits!

I’ve never been into bugs but this ornament has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid

Ironic ornament

This one is just freaking cute!
