We carried the tree home When Harry Met Sally style

Decorating the tree is one of my favorite things to do. I look forward to it all year. Fortunately, my roommate was just as eager to carry the tree home from the lot in true When Harry Met Sally city-dweller fashion. I mentioned last year that in lieu of a $100 tree skirt or something cheap and fuzzy from Target, I use two yards of burlap to hide the stand. $4 can buy you that much charm.

I'll be staying home for the holidays. Despite the lovely dusting last weekend, looks like it will be sunny and 40 degrees here Sunday. Lame. Either way, I'm excited to relax with the family for a few days. Games, wine, great food, and nonstop Michael Buble's Christmas await. What are all of your plans? Going anywhere? Some place warm?  Some place with snow?

Whatever you are doing, I truly hope you have a wonderful holiday, surrounded by the ones you love! Thank you so much for sticking with me all year. It means the world.


  1. Your tree is beautiful! Happy Holidays, I hope you have a great one with your family!

  2. You've inspired me to get out WHMS, which I always try to watch this time of year. The tree dragging is one of my favorite scenes! Merry Christmas, enjoy your holiday!

  3. Happy holidays to you too! I love this cute tree! This whole week I've been posting so much about the holidays... I just can't get enough :]


  4. Your tree looks lovely, Alaina! Happy holidays!

  5. Wishing you a VERY Merry Christmas and the best in 2012! Looking forward to starting a year as your business partner & cannot wait to see what this year brings. I am SO excited for the launch of The Everygirl.

    I propose a day of working on features + watching Christmas movies next week? Or possibly don't tell mom the babysitter's dead?

    Sorry for being such a sap. It's not me. It's the holiday cheer.

    Merry Christmas! I'm right on top of that, Rose!
