Happy thanksgiving week! This weekend was oh so very good and much needed. Lately the husband and I have been going back and forth on if we want a real tree or a fake tree. The size of the real tree we were wanting would cost around 60-70 bucks and we decided in the long run its better to get a fake tree now. When we have little ones I would like to have a real tree and have the whole tradition of going to get a real one but for now we decided on the fake tree.
Saturday morning we decided to go to costco and get one there and get some free samples. (yes we are one of those people haha) and my goodness costco was insane on saturday. sooo so so many people. I had to ride like this on the cart to make it easier to move and walk throughout the aisles. While we were there getting the tree we had no thought at all thinking "will this fit in the car or how are we going to get it home?"
Finally we checked out and walked to the car and then we had those thoughts. As we were walking to the car we kept saying uh what if this doesn't fit and let me tell you it didn't. We had our first Griswold family christmas tree moment. If you haven't seen Christmas Vacation i would highly recommend going to buy it, its a classic. Anyways, once we got to the car we tried putting it in the back seat and had no luck there, it wouldn't even go past the door. Second we tried getting in the trunk but the box was so huge it wouldn't even go in a little. I was dying of laughter and people kept watching us and laughing as well. It was not are brightest moment. We called some family members to see if they were in town to help us out and we had no luck there.
Finally we decided to put it on the roof of the car and tie it down and drive home. We were a little worried since the wind was crazy that day. Luckily costco had string that we could use. Husband tied it up on the roof and by doing that it locked me in the car. We were in costcos parking lot for almost an hour tying the tree down and making sure the wind wasn't going to blow it off. It was such a joke. I kept laughing it was such a sight. Finally we made it home and the tree box scraped the top of the husbands car. What luck. ha ha
I can't wait to put it up and decorate our first family christmas tree!
