Merry Merry Merry
This weekend Mr. Blimes and I ventured out to the Christmas Tree lots in search of the perfect holiday fir!!! Turns out the firs are WAAAAAAYYYY too expensive for our meager holiday budget (dear friends and family, you all get a baby for Christmas from the Blimes' this year) so we ended up with a scotch pine... still cute but A LOT more pokey... poor Mr. Blimes was torn all to pieces by the time he got the tree on the car! Ah, holiday traditions!!!
I had so much fun watching my dear dear husband carry the beastly stabber out of the lot and tie it to the car. I was cruel and made him stop to pose for a few pics while his poor arms and stomach were being jabbed relentlessly by the pokey pine needles... why does he love me so much??? :o)
Notice this blog contains no pictures of the finished tree in all its decorated glory. Our tree did not turn out quite as glamorous as I'd envisioned...(meager budget remember?) But, when it's decent enough to be blogworthy I will share! This is Mr. Blimes' and my first tree since our very first Christmas... our second year we were in Tampa for the holidays, the third year we were crazy busy with Even Kelsey (yes, we are ROCK STARS... see, Where They Are Now) lol and last year we spent the holidays in Europe... I am very excited to have a tree this year, glam or not!!!
Stay tuned this week for a BIG BELLY picture... I think I gained like 10 lbs this weekend... and I grew like 3 more chins... yes I'm a big fatty...
