Our Family Christmas Tree

I wanted to take time to show you all our family Christmas tree. We wanted to start a new tradition this year by hanging our Christmas Tree upside down from the ceiling. Everyone has been asking me what the deal is with hanging it upside down. To me, it just seems like something unique to do but in all reality there really is true meaning behind this dating as far back as the 12th century. 

Some historians believed that hanging your Christmas tree upside down was really the more traditional and meaningful way to symbolize Christmas. As legend would have it, the Christmas tree was originally used to symbolize religious devotion by Christian missionaries that used the tree to explain the religious tenet of the Trinity; God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Christmas trees were originally hung upside down to ensure that anyone who saw the tree would know it was not just a floral decoration. Eventually the original meaning was lost and people started turning the trees right side up which brought on the new tradition of the Christmas tree. 

So, there ya have it! There is real meaning behind the upside down Christmas tree. Pretty neat, huh? We are still working on getting the ornaments on the tree because it really is a job with a little 21 month old girl trying to help. 
FYI, if you're going to try and hang your tree from the ceiling, make sure you use really long, thick screws. You'll also want to use a stud finder so your tree's base screws snugly into the studs. 


  1. I have seen that before and I think it is really cool. I love your pictures. It is really nice your husband put it up for you-my husband would think I was crazy if I wanted to do that.

#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality.

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using for the other two …
