Hello Christmas Tree!

Today has been a great day.

It all started yesterday with a tweet from my friend Tamsin. I know that sounds funny, but just roll with it, ok?

This was her tweet:

“Put up our tree! http://twitpic.com/36cy07

Then this was the twitter conversation that continued today…

“I want to know which one?!?!? RT @173Miss_T @bec_reid I would recommend the same one, if you haven’t already bought yours.”

“@bec_reid Big W, Tree 3, $28″

SHUT-UP!!!! Richie and I are heading there after My open homes! RT @173Miss_T @bec_reid Big W, Tree 3, $28

“@bec_reid totally true! Ary found it then told me to go. It’s HEAPS nicer than the $80 ones I was considering. Mac Centre Big W has heaps”

Then we took a little trip to Big W in search of the perfect Christmas Tree. Then we ended up in Parramatta at The Christmas Warehouse with a tip-off from Nerise, a friend from church.

This is how it all unfolded…

These looked a little sad, but they were leaning towards the door way as a way to encourage customers to step inside and buy up big


This is THE ONE

Once the decision was made, there were some in-store shenanigans to be had.


Hello Kiddies! Who wants to have a can of coke and sit on Santa's knee?



This is the finished product, minus my home-made decorations and star/angel. But there are more decorations to come.

Too many photos?

Too bad, it was fun and it was all worth it, even if it is still only the 14th of November.
