Now that I'm a big girl and live in a big girl house, I actually need a big (er... larger) tree.  And being the frugal girl I am, I am waiting for the after Christmas sales before I get one.  So... in the mean time... I delayed and delayed and delayed getting a real (as in real life - not fake an real sized) tree.  

Turns out my eyes were bigger than my living room and I purchased a behemoth and here it is, crammed into my living room corner with a permanant seat on my sofa.

So... as for my big girl / big tree purchase next week.. I'm leaning towards a traditionally non-traditional tree (meaning: anything but evergreen).  Some may argue down the road I may want to go more traditional... and I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it... but for now, I just want all of my Christmases to be like this:
