A trip to Lowe's and a Christmas tree

My Home girl, Amanda and I went on a little trip to Lowe's. She wanted to get a new dishwasher. I enjoy shopping of any kind while holding a measuring tape, so obviously I went along for the ride. As soon as we entered the fabulous "Never stop improving" store, we became entranced by all things Merry and Christmas.
The first item that struck our fancy (admittedly mine more than hers) was the "Creepy Santa" doormat that she spotted. I screamed with delight "That's not creepy Santa, that's uncle Si!" much to the dismay of several people around me, but I was excited about this joyous gem.

(How does anyone not love uncle Si?!)
We followed the bright lights past the stockings and Reindeer...
....and wound up looking at the fake Christmas trees. Which was good but not as good as the real Christmas trees....
Which I just had to hug.
After comparing several trees and putting them through a tree-off, we had chosen.
Now on to decorate!
Lights, wine, ornaments, ribbon and beads, oh my!
Check out this dazzling beauty!
Disclaimer: Although stunning and brilliant, Christmas trees cannot in fact wash dishes.
The moral of the story: If you go in to Lowe's for a dishwasher, don't be surprised if you come out with a Christmas tree! (Especially if you're shopping with me).
