EEEK. Our tree is up!

Caleb and I put our Christmas tree up over our long 4 day break. It's a day I've been looking forward to since we started dating. To, one day, put up OUR Christmas tree, together...in our home. Granted, its not the biggest tree you've ever seen...but she's ours, and she's perfect.


We have a little 6 foot, artificial tree. She has no official name yet...but she's definitely got spunk, so I will find the perfect name. Caleb unwrapped her and she practically busted when the box opened...she couldn't wait to be shown off.




This makes me laugh so hard, outtake. I look like I'm hugging our tree.
 We had a lot of fun unwrapping her and making her nice and full. Then we decorated her with our cutest ornaments (which I sadly cannot find most of mine right now!), and decided to start on the rest of the apartment (more pictures to come on our tree, she's a work in progress right now).

Our stocking holders!


We were so busy decorating, it made us hungry, so we decided to cook and bake our little faces off. I originally wanted to get dolled up and ask Caleb to go out to eat somewhere, but before I got the chance, he suggested we pick a fun recipe, go buy the ingredients and have a night in. So that, we did.


Homemade(ish) buffalo chicken pizza.

Back story - in college, Caleb worked at two pizza places and kiiiind of became a master. I tried hiding my drool when he asked "is it cool if I throw garlic, butter and cheese on the crust??"...I'm sorry, is that even a question?


 and we washed it down with some brownies, and red velvet cupcakes. YUM!

Sunday was the perfect ending to a perfect break from work. Church, a lazy Sunday, and a Bengals WIN! What more could a girl ask for!?

I will say, we didn't eat too healthy over our little break from life. It seemed that we were having too much fun to worry about calories. I still logged everything, just didn't let it consume me. However this week, I'm going to be good!! I have to recover from all the carbs ;)

Hope you all had a great weekend as well!

  4. Red velvet cupcakes make my heart so happy. And I LOVE seeing someone else with a fake tree! Living in Portland, a majority of the west coast gets their Christmas trees from our tree farms so it's unheard of to have a fake tree. But I love mine :-) And it was so easy to put up!

  17. I love that first picture!! So abstract & pretty! We have artificial too! I grew up with real trees.. but I think artificial trees are the best! Less clean up. And we buy that pine spray to get the smell. =)
