Here I am, back in my cube at work. I've got to say its not my ideal place to be when I just spent the last nine days alongside my husband doing whatever we felt like. BUT I'm thankful to have a job that allows me some flexibility/paid vacation time/etc., so I'll roll with the punches and deal with this Monday. After all, Christmas IS right around the corner and how can I not be thankful? I've got a husband to celebrate with, a home to open our presents in, and a God who is crazy about me.
Let me back up though, and fill you in on what we spent our free week doing!
Monday was full of pure laziness (Caleb had to work), and I loved every second. I did manage to watch 3 movies, do a ton of laundry and edit hundreds of photos - but other than that? I hardly left the couch. #itrocked
We spent a lot of time throughout the week doing some last minute Christmas shopping, and eating out entirely too much - but isn't that what "vacation" is for?! ;)
We hit up the Cincinnati Zoo for the Festival of Lights one night! It was amazing. We've never been together and it was so much fun!
We grabbed lunch at Joe's crab shack and I was reminded how obsessed I am with coconut shrimp!
We also found time to go thrifting and hit up our local Target about 3 times. Caleb said he was taking a trip to the restroom but came back a few minutes later with my favorite drink from Starbucks...
Took a trip to Bob Evans for breakfast at 9pm because we could! Not having to get up before the sun every day means later nights!
A star wars marathon began, too! We started with the "prequels" (4th, 5th and 6th movies released) and I surprisingly loved them. We're hoping to watch the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd movies before the New Year - but we'll see! There are also lots of Christmas movies to be seen!!
Friday, we took a trip to the Outlet malls so Caleb could finally use a gift card from his birthday! That evening we made our annual tradition happen with our best friends! A local church puts on a HUGE Christmas play and it never disappoints.
So all in all, we had a great week together. Some days were spent with awesome, new adventures, and other days were filled with pure laziness. I wouldn't have had it any other way! Going wherever the wind wanted to take us. I'm excited for a semi-short week and enjoying our 3rd Christmas as husband and wife!
I hope everyone had a great week last week. I've missed keeping up with everyone via your blogs! I'm off to catch up ;) happy Monday!
