357 Oh the Irony

This evening, we cuddled up and drank hot chocolate by the fire.
Sort of.
Thanks to Netflix, we got to watch the crackling yule log for the fire ambiance.
The funny thing is, we actually have a fireplace.
But unfortunately, the only place we could put our tv was right in front of it.

356 Zoo Lights

Tonight we met up with a family from AZ for dinner, and a night at the zoo. The LT went to high school with them, and I knew the husband as well, because we had mutual friends way back in the day. They live a little over an hour from us now so we were excited to meet up with them!
The kids all hit it off well and had a blast running around and checking out the animals.
We are looking forward to spending time with them again!

355 Is it Wrong to Have a Favorite!?

We got what I think is my favorite Christmas card ever today. 
Now, we get a lot cards from dear family and friends whom we love. They are all fabulous and special to me. (Seriously, I LOVE Christmas cards.)
But I love this one because I took the picture. (I love this family too!) Actually, I was beyond thrilled to receive several cards this year with photos I took on them. It was a very special feeling.
But as a wannabe graphic designer/photographer, I love how this one came together. The photo, the font, the paper even. I reminded me of some vintage-y cool magazine. If only this photo did it justice.
I was really proud to be involved in it!

But I really love everyone's cards...just so you know.
Please keep sending them to me. :)

354 Bedtime

Bedtime is something I sincerely look forward to these days. It means that I can actually lie down and stop moving for a few hours!! Tonight I was able to curl up with Bean while she read me a Christmas book. I love these moments and can't wait until this house is unpacked so we can focus more on them!

353 Chilly Night

After a long day of unpacking and rearranging, the LT convinced me to leave the house. We drove out to an outdoor shopping area and walked around for a little bit. It was pretty cold, but we enjoyed the lights and new stores.
On a side note, this photo was taken with my phone and no matter what I did, it always made the lights look like this!!

352 Tree is Up!

We finally got a Christmas tree up today!!
We were nervous about putting up our tree because it is pretty wide and our apartment is pretty tiny. We discussed buying a thinner one, but I really didn't want to spend a ton knowing that after Christmas, they would probably be dirt cheap.
We decided to check them out at Target anyway. Much to our surprise we found this little guy. It was only about sis inches shorter than the tree we had wanted, but was $100 less!! 
We had to buy lights for it, but with the tree being 30% off, we paid a whopping $18 for it!! We didn't feel so bad about having to buy the lights.
We had a great time decorating this evening, and are so excited that it is feeling more like Christmas now!

351 Getting Caught Up

Tonight, I got our Christmas cards addressed and stuffed.
