It was alot more fun than I'd thought it'd be! It was kinda like shopping! We went to the very first tree lot we saw; didn't see any reason to look at the bazillion others. I'm glad we chose to stop here as the people who operated the lot were super friendly. I asked someone for help, since hubs and I were both tree virgins. I knew I wanted a tall, fat, full tree, but didn't know much else. Our ceiling is about 9 feet tall so I knew we could get a 7 or 7.5' tall tree easily. I grazed the lot and it was evident I was being picky. The hubs was laughing at me. The guy who was helping us walked away so I kept looking. I walked over towards the front of the lot and saw out of the corner of my eye a tree that the guy who was helping us appeared to be "fluffing up". I said to Rich, "That's it!" It was sort of ironic because the guy who had been helping us had walked over to get this tree for us because he said he thought I'd like it. Sweet, right? That's North Carolina service for ya! :-)
This lot was based in Western North Carolina outside of Boone, NC. A beautiful area surrounded by and in the gorgeous Carolina mountains. I remember seeing a TON a tree farms when we went camping last year. Check out those posts HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE! It's a funny, awesome, and embarrassing read!
Who knows, our tree could have come from one of these farms!
Here I am with our new tree - don't I look a little too happy?
