Love + good vibes + happiness! That sums up the weekend perfectly! I’m so blessed with an amazing family and a bad ass tribe of friends! We decked the halls. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, then you already got a taste of it. We just went for it. The next couple of weekends are pretty busy so it was now or never!
Dinner with my favorites at Morgan’s On Main. You guys, I ordered the special. Scallops over pasta with a fried egg. Heaven! I hope they put it on their menu, that way I can go back weekly for it.
I can’t remember what I did to her, but we couldn’t stop laughing ♥
Saturday morning we went Christmas Tree hunting. We checked out Little Bear Tree Farm located about an hour and 20 minutes up Hwy 80 in the little town of Alta, CA. Never heard of it till my girlfriend, Alex told me about it. We normally do Apple Hill, but let’s be honest…it’s a total shit show. Wayyy too many peeps. Wayyy too much traffic. We typically cut our tree and leave ASAP! This was a lot different.
As you pull up to the Tree Farm, which is a ways off the freeway, you’ll be greeted by the friendliest people I think I’ve ever met.
You pick out your saw and hop in the back of a Jeep. They take you up the hill toward the 50 acres of Christmas Trees. Silver Tip + White Fur as far as you can see.
They literally drop you off in the woods and drive away…lol. Remember, we are a week earlier than most Christmas Tree hunters. So there wasn’t even a sign of life for about a good hour.
I forgot what a picky tree picker I am every year, till we try to find one…lol. We walked a couple of miles. And it took over an hour.
We found these beauties on the side of a hill. You can kind of see to the left of Bailey. It drops off, very steeply. Of course that’s where “the” tree was. I almost lost my shit sawing these things down. Ours toppeled over me and all the way down the hill. I had to drag that son of a bitch all the way back up to the top. I told my Mom at one point that I hadn’t worked that hard since child-birth. For reals though!
If you’re looking to start a new Holiday tradition, this is the place to go. Check out the fun gift shop. Tons of adorable ornaments, knickknacks and homemade baked goods!
We will be back next year and many more. This is for sure our new tradition!
We rewarded our Tree victory with a Golden Cadillac from Poor Red’s. My Mom had never been!
