Our Weekend

We had a little bit different weekend than what we originally planned, but it was fun and low key.  The mister and I had a big weekend planned to travel to Dallas Saturday morning and do all our Christmas shopping at my very favorite mall, Northpark!  The weekend also would have included looking at Christmas lights in Highland Park, cheering on my precious friend during her half marathon and celebrating her graduation, but the weather had other plans for us.  We stayed settled in at home, made chili, and put up our first Christmas tree!!  

I have absolutely no idea how my iPhone capture this blurred image of our tree, but I love it!  I'm looking forward to posting more tree details and other Christmas decor around our house later this week, but wanted to share this one now.

Another fun thing we did this weekend was purchase many of our Christmas gifts online!  It was so nice to look at all the options without a huge crowd swarming around.  I loved the ease of finding all the products I needed and with free shipping, what is their to lose?!  Part of me will always appreciate the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping along with all the festive decor found in stores and shopping malls, but now that I've experienced the comfort and ease of online shopping, I am so grateful for this option!

In other news, the most wonderful part of the weekend had to be our experience Saturday afternoon!  We were able to go to my in-laws and watch another amazing Baylor football game as our Bears took hold of the Big 12 Championship!!  I am so proud of our team and all they have accomplished!  I can't wait to cheer them on as they play in the Tostito's Fiesta Bowl on New Year's Day.  Baylor football has come a long way since I was a freshman in the fall of 1999 and it is so exciting to see what these players and coaches have been able to accomplish together!!  Sic 'em! :)


  1. Yes, sic 'em Bears! It is amazing to see what the football program has accomplished since our time there.

  2. So I was going to say...oh, that picture of a tree looks like the perfect christmas scene and then I laughed out loud when you said, I have no idea how my iphone did that. Haha. That's how I am "learning" photography. haha.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
