Tis' the Season

I'm pretty sure you guys have no idea what's been going on in my life so I thought I would catch you up. After seem to like my random posts the best :)

(these are in no particular order)

1) I got a new (to me) car!! This happened a few weeks ago but I just haven't had a chance to tell you yet! Its a 2012 Toyota Camry and I LOVE IT!! It still doesn't feel real!

2) We celebrated Tim's 25th Birthday! It was pretty low key but that's what he wanted. We had birthday milkshakes from Cookout...YUM!

3) We celebrated our 1-1/2 year Anniversary :)

4) We got our Christmas cards from Pear Tree Greetings! I AM SO EXCITED to share them with you (once everyone receives theirs).
5) We put up our Christmas Tree and decorations!! Will be sharing that very soon but here's a preview! Our tree is smaller this year since we have filled up the space where it used to be. (ignore all of the unwrapped gifts below it)
(tree with lights only)
6) We did the Tacky Lights tour. We didn't go to as many as last year but we did see some new ones. Did you see my recap of the tour from last year?
Artie was fascinated by Santa!

7) We got tickets to the VT v VCU basketball game next weekend :) So excited. This was part of Tim's birthday gift! Tim went to VT for undergrad and VCU for grad school but we will be cheering for the HOKIES!!

9) I sang in our church's Christmas Cantata yesterday. Here's my festive outfit!!
Shirt: J.Crew/ Skirt: Kohls / Scarf: Old Navy
(ignore my hair...I'm getting it cut and colored in about a week!! It's way overdue)

What else have we been up to?
Got us a kit to make a Gingerbread Cabin haha!
Made (banana cream pudding) cookies for Tims's Christmas cookie exchange at work! 
Love Short Pump Town Center's Christmas decorations!
Hangin out with this little guy!! I got him a reindeer costume :) He is fascinated by our tree and tried to eat our reindeer ornament.

That basically sums up the last month!! Hope you have a Happy Monday!

  1. Aw, cute!! First off, the car is so pretty! And secondly, I'm dying to do the tacky lights tour! I'm hoping it's up for a couple of days after Christmas so I can catch it!

  2. Ugh I so miss Short Pump & Stony Point shopping centers!!! You've been very Christmasy lately! It all sounds like fun :-) Congrats on the new toy too!!!

  3. what a cool shopping center...also I SO wish I was there to see the tacky lights!

  4. Those christmas lights are amazing!

  5. Love those lights! And I love that your church calls it a cantata also, our church does, but I never hear that anywhere else!

  6. Thanks for inviting me to your Christmas link-up!
    Can't wait to see your Christmas cards and the rest of your decor! :)
