Christmas Tree Farm - Part 2 (Fiancé Cameo)

So every once in awhile there is a handsome man I convince to let me take pictures of him in his stylish outfits. <HAHA!> That man is Nate - my future husband - who also happens to be turning 31 on Sunday! Happy Birthday Nate!

I am pretty sure after hour 2 at Yeager tree farm he was ready to throw the towel in, but he was a good sport! When we found our 10 foot tall tree it was like that moment in the movies when you walk across a desert to find water... and then we found it!

Christmas Tree Farm - Part 1

Shop My Look:
Plaid Top $27 plus 20% off <also comes in other plaid colors> | Hunter Boots | Denim | 
Gold link bracelet | Vest <sold out> similar linked below

So yesterday Nate and I decided... "Babe, let's go get a Christmas tree!" We found this awesome farm called Yeager Tree Farm in Phoenixville, PA and truly it was the first time we ever cut down our own tree! My whole life I have just picked a tree from the pre cut selection, but I don't know if I could ever go back to that after discovering the "cut your own method." It's exhausting but honestly THE MOST FUN EVER!

Don't ask me why -- but this year we decided we wanted a 10 Foot tree. <Insert laughter here> This is especially ridiculous because we live in an apartment. However we do have HUGE HIGH ceilings so it works-- sort of! Wait til my "it's decorated post" coming soon to a blog near you.  Yeager farm will give you a ride out to the trees and help you cut them-- but we decided to just walk the whole farm! I'm pretty sure it took us 3 hours to pick a tree - not kidding. Truly, we could not make up our minds as we searched and searched for the PERFECT TREE. Finally we found her... <Nate went into Lumberjack mode> THANKFUL FOR HIM!

The Yeager farm offers complimentary cookies, hot cocoa and cider! We were starving at the end of the hunt for a tree so we also got $1.50 hot dogs!
 Oh and my fave part you can always get a picture with Santa! Am I too old? Oh well.


How do you pick a tree? Do you use a artificial one? The real thing?
More to come on the tree situation.... 

P.S. Nate's outfit and our tree part 2 is on the blog --Wednesday night.

If you have never been to Yeager's Tree Farm it's a MUST VISIT.

Just picture me laying in bed with my hand over my stomach because I am so full.
HOLY SALES BATMAN! So I truly made a promise to myself that I would not shop or be on the internet at all on Thanksgiving. Today though ...it's on! I just think Thanksgiving is a special day we should share with our families and really be present. Sometimes the internet, facebook, instagram, and shopping can really keep us from being engaged with family. The older I get the more I realize how important these moments are. Hope you enjoyed turkey and lots of delicious food with your families!  I AM FULL. Ha!

So I rounded up some of the biggest sales that I am loving right now because the only place I want to shop is right here in my bed. Happy home shopping! 
xo, Alex

My Favorite Casual Sweaters For Fall

It's finally sweater weather and let's be real it is ALL I wait for. I love the cold, love the leaves, love pretty much all of it. It could be because of the fact that I grew up near the beaches and I suppose fake icicles on buildings don't really count as snow right?
