December things

Quick bragging post about my husband...

When we got married we started a tradition where we have our own little Christmas together, just us two, before heading down to California for Christmas with the family. We put together stockings for each other and open them together. I love it so much.

Tonight he had our little mini Christmas, since we leave tomorrow, and it was just as fun as ever.

So quick side note...

I LOVE candles.

Daniel HATES candles. 

He thinks they are a complete wast of money {which, they kind of are, but I still LOVE them}

 Evertime I walk in to Anthro, I SWOON over their delicious and gorgeous candles. I've told Daniel countless times that I would love to splurge on an Anthro candle...but I never have. I've also tried explaining to him that one of those beautiful Anthro candles would not be a waste of money because,

a. I would probably hardly ever light it because I wouldn't want to waste it {plus just having the top off already smells amazing} 

b. even if it did burn out all the way, I would keep it forever and use it as decoration ;)

Well, he still disagrees and has always said he would NEVER spend $28 on a candle.

BUT...what did I find when he gave me my stocking tonight??!


Ahhhh I am obsessed with HIM more than I am with the gorgeous candle.

He's the best. And I'll keep my candle forever.

Now off to California we go!

After a late night at DA CLUB on friday, (I know, we don't really seem like the clubbing type, but on occasions we do go and have more fun on the dance floor than anyone else - alcohol free. Yeah, we can still hang with the young single people! ;) Paige dared me to go to the bar and order a Shirley Temple. I would have, but Daniel wouldn't give me his credit card. I know...immature)...moving on. AFTER A LATE NIGHT AT DA CLUB ON FRIDAY...Daniel and I rolled in to Park City at about 1 am (that's late for us) and crashed before waking up bright and early on Saturday. Daniel went skiing while I shopped. Gahhh and fell in love with this Anthro coat...

I think it might need to be an investment purchase for Salty Blondes ;)

Then we met up with friends for dinner, and ended our night at home with Christmas candles lit, eating peppermint ice cream and watching Love Actually (#1 favorite Christmas movie) just the two of us. 

This weekend was perfect.

Ps. We've decided to stay in Utah for the time being. More details on why coming soon.

HE is the GIFT

With all the decorations, lights, treats, gifts, music, etc. that comes with the Christmas season, it's so easy to forget the true meaning of CHRISTmas. I am the first to admit that I think wayyy too much about the unimportant aspects of Christmas (cough cough...presents). But this video put into perspective what I really need to be thinking about this season. My Savior and Redeemer...the greatest Gift of all.

Well, I haven't been very good at keeping up with my personal blog since Salty Blondes here's an update:

1. We just got back from a fun long weekend in San Diego <3 There are so many things to be thankful for. My family, and the opportunity I had to be able to be in California with them is one.

2. I'm still recovering from my leg injury (yaaa, long story)
(sorry, I know it's nasty, but I had to document)

3. Anddd Daniel and I are considering moving to San Diego! We have  HUGE life changing decision ahead of us and we have to decide this week. Prayers are appreciated as we try to figure out what will be best for us and the future of our family. 

Well, this was short but sweet. I'll try to be better.
