On the first day of Blogmas, my true love gave to me....
A quuuuest for a Christmas Treeeeeee
On my first Sunday off in a while, six of us piled into two different cars for one sole purpose...To find the ultimate Christmas tree.
At first I was beyond excited! This was something my first roommate, Yaz, and I decided we would always do as long as we lived together so it was excited to share it with our new roommates.
But after looking at Home Depot and being slightly disappointed by their tree and decoration selection, my hope and excitement was starting to dwindle. We then decided to go to Big Lots to look for cheap lights and decor and then to a nearby Tree Tent.
Finally, after Big Lots and two more disappointing tree shops, we were able to secure an inexpensive but a full and tall tree at Sutherlands! Would totally recommend tying the tree to your car yourself though because the two people who "attempted" to tie it just ended up making big knots in the rope, so we had to hold the ropes inside the car to secur the tree.
After hacking off extra branches (that should have been done by Sutherlands) and getting it standing up straight in the stand, we finally had a tree in 301!
The quest only took two and a half hours but it was worth it when we were finished with it.
Until next time lovelies!
