So I have had an interesting afternoon/evening! First off I had to drag FI to get motivated to get a tree, because with him working nights its just too hard to get one during the week. On the way there we argued because we were going to a new place and FI was messing with the GPS and not giving me adequate directions while doing so, so I missed the first major turn. Then we get out and walk around at the tree place and he just follows me half the time. I find this one tree I thought looked pretty good. We have like 10ft+ ceiliings and I thought it would be cool to be my first tall tree! Well terrible idea. He didn't listen to me and cut a foot off the bottom so that of course made us pay more for the tree. They place shook it and wrapped it for us and as FI lifts it so I can put the tailgate up on the truck he snaps about a foot of the peak off the tree. So then we argue on the way home because he is ticked the tree is damaged. Then we get it inside and the tree is too heavy for the tree stand we had and bent the leg rendering it broken. So we had to go buy another tree stand ($$) and when we unbundled it we found that the tree is MASSIVE. So we had to rearrange the living room to fit it. And after it was shook it just looks awful. It has holes in it in places we didn't wee before. There was truly no good angle for it. It is HOMELY. FUGLEY. anyname you can think of. And it is so huge that is all you can help but do to stare at it every time you walk past. And it is so heavy we had to keep it straight by using fishing string and attaching it to the wall with dry wall scews.
So needless to say we aren't having any guests until after Christmas!! lol
But I have to tell you ladies I wasn't sure I was going to have a wedding there for a few minutes today :P
