How City People Get Their Tree...

When you live in an urban area like me, going to that picturesque tree farm to get your tree looks a little different. Instead, we go to a tree lot with pre-cut trees. And us urban dwellers either drag our tree home on foot (which I've done before) or cram it in the back of your trunk! We did the latter this year since this tree was the biggest one we've had so far. About 5 feet tall when looking at it in comparison to me.
Our 2013 Xmas tree. 
The tree lot in Hoboken is actually at this really cool and really old church, which I'm pretty sure isn't even used as a church anymore. But its beautiful nonetheless. Inside we could pick out decorations, ornaments, tree stands, you get the gist. And of course it was those old stained glass windows that give the whole experience that vintage feel.
There she is.
"A little full, a lotta sap..."
look at D hard at work.
Homeword bound we go!
She's up and ready for the holiday season! And of course, you know from this post that I am so agreeable with D that we did not only the colored lights, but the small and large vintage bulbs. Even though I prefer white, this tree is nothing short of fun and festive.
There's nothing better than sitting back and admiring your tree, while drinking hot chocolate in your Snoopy Christmas mug. 'Tis the season!

  4. Aww what a cute little tree! We drove two hours outside the city to chop down our own tree this year and then drove back in terror because it looked like it might fall off the roof of our car.

    1. hahah that's a great story! I feel like it's not really Christmas until you worry about your tree falling off your roof! which I'm pretty sure has happened to me when I was a kid!

  6. So fun!! I can count on one hand the times we've had a real tree (so sad) - I think my boys would love a real one, and the chance to pick one out in the great outdoors! ;)

  10. There's something about a christmas tree lighting up the house at night that is better than just about anything in the world! So cozy and peaceful. Love the colorful lights on the cute tree you guys picked. Also, the tree lot makes me think of Charlie Brown Christmas. :)
