I'm exhausted from my work week. Worst blogger ever. To keep it short and sweet, here is our tree! Doug and I purchased it at Home Depot. Believe it or not, it was an excellent overall experience! Very inexpensive, and they even helped us tie it to our car. First tree in the new apartment! We have decided that next year we are going to aim for a tree about 2 to 3 feet taller than this one!
