The ugliest sweater of all.

We've been looking forward to this weekend for a while! We're going to visit two of our sweetest friends, Andy & Megan! They live in Columbus and we have LOTS of fun planned for ourselves. Sushi, homemade pedicures for us girls (video games for the boys), my first Barre class, the Zoo (eek!!) and much more! On Sunday, we'll be back home for church and our first Christmas celebration with Caleb's side of the family. His parents will be in town so we're kicking things off a little early! As excited as I am for that, I don't want tonight and tomorrow to go by TOO fast!

I know I said it earlier in the week, but I really feel like December is FLYING right by me. It hit me that we only have a little over a week left with our adorable Christmas tree! Is it terrible if I want to keep it up well into January? Something about its cute bright colorful glow makes our apartment feel so "home-y", and we love it!

Another reason I don't want December to fly by? So I can rock ugly sweaters like this as much as possible ;) -- props go to my sister in love for that!


I also can't get enough of all the baked goods. Something about this time of year makes everyone want to bake (talking about myself here), and I can't say I hate how the kitchen at work always smells like gingerbread and peppermints. YUM! I also don't hate all the work my brother puts in after school to deliver these awesome Christmas themed concerts! Love him, aaand I wouldn't mind if he shaved that beard....

Although we've got a LOT more fun planned for the month of December, I'm really excited for this new year and all the fun goals we've got in store. A lot of scary exciting things headed our way and we couldn't be happier about all of them! Anybody else praying for a WHITE Christmas!?!? I want to build a snowman!! ...... you're welcome if the whole Frozen soundtrack is now stuck in your head.

  3. I hear you on the baking! My mom bought me a subscription to Taste of Home for Christmas and all I want to do is cook/bake! I wish I had the $$ to make everything in there!

  4. I'm pretty sure that you're on to something - I do tend to bake more around this time of year! But if it makes our bellies happy, why not?! :)

  5. I never thought I'd say this (since I walk to work), but I definitely want some snow. It just doesn't feel right to celebrate Christmas without it, you know? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure we haven't had snow for a couple Christmases in a row now and it's not cool. Also, I certainly won't judge if you leave the tree up through January. My mom usually does, too!
