Today is November 13th. My Christmas tree is up. It will remain up through Christmas. 😋

I know it's early! Please don't send me angry emails over my apparent hatred of Thanksgiving! I absolutely love Thanksgiving. It's probably my favorite holiday of the year - in tight combination with Christmas. Trust me, there's a reason my tree is up this early!

In our 10 years of marriage, we have never had a pre-lit Christmas tree. Actually as I type this I'm realized that I'm slightly wrong, our very first Christmas tree as a married couple was a pre-lit tree given to us by my Grandparents. Unfortunately when we put it up, only half of the tree lit up and after searching endlessly for the bulb(s) that were out, we gave up, cut the lights off, and just bought new lights. We've had our share of both artificial and real trees since them, but all have had to be decorated with lights.

This year was it: I wanted a pre-lit tree.

I had my eye on one in particular from my favorite store on Earth, Costco. Right in the front, a 7.5 foot tree with 700 lights that change from warm light to colored in several different settings. 

People, I splurged. And I don't regret it one bit!

Of course after getting it home, we had to set it up to make sure that it was working fine. Now that it's up, I refuse to take it down. It looks so amazing!

This Crockpot Queso Blanco is the perfect tree-trimming snack to put on your to-make list this holiday season. We're having quite a crowd for Thanksgiving, so I'm planning on bringing a double batch of it to our holiday feast. It is so incredibly good, I doubt I'll be bringing any of it home!

Spring for the better quality, deli-sliced fresh American cheese for this recipe. The type of cheese really makes up the majority of this dip, so quality will matter here. It's so easy to throw together though, you honestly can't go wrong with this recipe! I highly recommend the tortilla chip dippers as well - you want as much of that cheesy goodness in every bite as you can get!
