I have had my Instant Pot for a few years now. I use it at least twice a week and I am not one for leaving a lot of appliances on my counter.

Another Buffalo Check Christmas Tree

Another Buffalo Check Christmas Tree

This is the third Christmas I have had two Christmas trees. Growing up I always had a dream of having more than one Christmas tree that just seemed so fancy.

I first adorned the tree with this buffalo check ribbon and then in between the ribbon I went back in with a burlap and red glitter ribbon.
