Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!

Derek and I have been looking forward to our first Christmas as a married couple for months, and this weekend we picked out our first tree together!

We headed to a local tree farm just around the corner to pick it out.


My handsome husband.


It only took us a few minutes to find the perfect tree.



We named our tree Bruce. (AKA Bruce-the-Spruce.)


Naked Bruce.

After we got Bruce in the house, we got our decorating on.



We listened to Christmas music and drank eggnog while we decorated. Derek also baked some cookies. It was full-on Christmas extravaganza. 🙂


We basically started from scratch with the ornaments. All of the ones pictured below are from Target.

We went for a homey, woodsy style with a little bit of shimmer.

Our simple, but pretty, tree topper came from Target as well.


Happy holiday decorating!!
