This month has been such a busy one, and I feel like I’m really far behind in blogging about it all. I’m sure I’ve left moments out, but here are some of the highlights.
This past Saturday Miss PhD and I got together for a girl’s day. We went on a tour of the Governor’s Mansion in Sacramento, which was all decked out for Christmas. Can I just say it’s my dream to one day live in a house where I can have more than one Christmas tree? I think this one had at least 5.
We also got our picture with Santa, which prompted me to dig through my old pictures. We took a picture together with Santa 13 years ago. It makes my heart happy that we’re still good friends after all these years!
We also hung out in old town Sacramento, which I really need to do more. It’s such a cute area, and there are all kinds of fun shops to explore. I’m going to see if Match will take me there on a date next week.
Last week we had a really fun night with Couple Family. They came over in their PJs and we went to Candy Cane Lane, then watched Elf. The day they were coming over, Match decided to make snowflakes and hang them from the living room ceiling. It was so cute how into it he got. I think the snowflakes are going to become a yearly tradition.
The kids broke out in this spontaneous dance number while we were finishing dinner. Is that not the cutest thing? I love how sister copied big brother.
Jim: So this morning, we are having breakfast together…and I just looked up from my cereal and I said, “You know what I wanna do today? I wanna marry you.”
Pam: I had just woken up. I didn’t look cute. That’s how I knew he meant it. –The Office
A year ago tonight, Match asked me to marry him. I can’t believe it’s only been a year! So much has happened and our lives have changed so drastically in just 12 months.
I remember thinking in that moment that I couldn’t be happier. But I am, because now I’m not just Match’s fiancée, I’m his wife. Here we are about to spend our first Christmas together as a married couple. We’re starting new traditions and our life together is just beginning. At the risk of sounding cheesy, Match, you really are the best Christmas present I could ever ask for!
Meredith: Justâ€” go with it, we’re being supportive.
Izzie: Oh, hey! What do you think? Did I go too overboard? I know, I know sometimes I can go a little overboard.
George: No, we love it!
Meredith: It’s great.
Izzie: Oh, yay! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!
Meredith: We know. –Grey’s Anatomy
Last night was our appetizer party with Couple Friends and Couple Baby. It turned out being so nice with just the five of us. If we had another couple there, I think it would have been too crowded. Plus, we were able to bundle up and go check out Christmas lights in our neighborhood. Continue reading I Heart Christmas Lights→
