…or if I’m really coming down with something. But I feel gross this morning. Numb and tired.
Poor Jeremy has what I believe is pink eye and has felt run down and lousy all week. My sister’s entire household is burning up with fever.
I don’t wanna get sick!!!
The ‘goods’ are ‘gooder’ and the ‘bads’ are better — because I have Mr. B for always.
Me, on marriage
(Apparently, my love for Mr. B causes me to lose all control of my grammar muscles.)
I feel the same way about MY “Mr B.” :)
Multi-grain Cheerios make me sneeze.
Jeremy and I went to a Christmas tree farm to pick out our very first live tree. After having 2 different artificial trees conk out on us in just 9 years, we decided to give a real tree a try.
We went to Pine Lake Christmas Tree Farm, a real Mom & Pop business. They planted their first trees in the 70’s, as a college fund for their children. They’re still running the farm and now their grandson works for them. :)
Since we’d never done this before, I had no idea we were actually going to get to walk through fields of trees and pick the one we wanted. (I’ve only ever seen the trees lined up at tree lots or Wal-mart, you know? I thought if you wanted a “fresh” one you had to have a family farm or go all Clark Griswald in the forest.) It was so fun! We found our tree almost right off the bat but still walked through the whole farm to make sure we got the best one.
(Picking out a Christmas tree in shorts and a t-shirt. That’s my man!)
We flagged down the grandson and he cut it down, cleaned it all up, shook the loose needles off and tied it to the top of my car for us. Such service! :)
I have to tell you, a dream was realized last night. When I very first got my car (like 6 years ago), I thought “Oh my gosh, this would look so perfect with a Christmas tree strapped on top of it.” I don’t know why. It just had that quintessential Christmas-car vibe. But I didn’t think it would ever really happen, since we had artificial trees.
SO CUTE RIGHT?! :D I felt so proud driving home with our prized tree displayed for all the jealous city-folk to see. ;)
Once we got home we realized the tree stand we’d purchased earlier wasn’t narrow enough for our tree’s skinny trunk. So by the time we finally got a new one and got everything set up, I only had time to get the lights on. That wasn’t a terribly pleasant experience (hello sap and ouchie-needles that make my hands itch!) but I had so much fun admiring this majestic piece of God’s creation that was grown just for the purpose of bringing joy at Christmas. So lovely!
Tonight, I’ll finish decorating her. (Yes, her.) I’ll be all
And I’ll post pics when I’m done!
Fa la la la la. La la la la. :)
