A CHRISTMAS POST

I Love the month of December, Christmas time and the winter holidays, in general! Everything is so pretty, festive, the foods are delish, the weather is cold and the clothes are adorable! 
This weekend I decorated my mini tree! 
...
At the Christmas tree lot I noticed a pile of trees that were ready to be thrown out or chopped up. 
 .So sad. 
They reminded me of the Biblical Disney movie "The small one". (OMG So sad, Im tearing up thinking about it!)
Poor trees, I decided to choose one from the group...
I wanted a small tree (for my small apartment) but all of the trees in the pile that weren't going to sell were quite large. I asked them to cut the top portion from a larger tree to make a smaller tree for me. 
Im glad I was able to use some of a tree that would have otherwise been thrown out. 
I don't have any ornaments yet, only lights and a small iradescent star.  
I love when malls are beautifully decorated for Christmas! 
One of my favorite things to do in December is bundle up for some evening shopping and late dinner amongst all the festive decor.
Here is a photo from a gorgeously done outdoor mall in LA.

  7. awwwww your tree is so cute! D is hilarious, that was my tree she uploaded. IVC is the 1st weekend of the month I believe, Rose Bowl the 2nd, Long Beach the 3rd. All in rotation so you can go to one almost every weekend :) Lola (my dog) and I just might be at IVC in January to try and score some deals.

  14. You're like Pheobe from that episode of friends when she cries when the old trees go in the chipper. It's an older episode. I love it. Your blog is one of my absolute favs!
