its beginning to SMELL like christmas!!

"Ev'rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in ev'ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door. "

check out the huge ass (literally) tree that i lugged back from fareast flora!!

ever since our real pine tree in NewYork, i've always maintained that its not christmas without a christmas treee!!! no scented Yankee Candle can bring on the christmas mood better than the real fuzzy bushy thing!! flown all the way from Netherlands...woohoo!!

and what brings on the warm and fuzziness of christmas better than christmas tree shopping with a BANGLA! (not to be racist!) me and the bangla from fareastflora had the longest conversation about which tree looks the lushest without looking lopsided and we communally picked this prized baby finally! he is really funny.. really fluffy at the bottom and well tiered but bald at the top! bottom heavy hehe.. or pear-shaped as most women call it! *grins* but i love it!!! and the bangla flexed his muscles, bless his heart... and shook it really hard to get the rain out and yanked it through this plastic conical thing to wrap it in netting (tengsy had a nastier horrible name.. cant divulge!) completely professional. i was floored!! and the whole time i was wincing "owwy... be more gentle won't ya" and he even carried it to my car for me. and climbed into the trunk in himself (ok..just kidding, threw in the last part..) and we parted ways when i drove away.

and the whole house smells yummy now!! bursting with fresh pine! even the camry smells like an airfreshener exploded in there! hehe..

hope mom doesn't notice the pines in the car and the smell! cos its a surprise for her!!

moving on with the christmas decor... both me and tengsy agreed we need to find mistletoes to hang around the house! its the season for loving!!
