Birthday and Christmas Fun

For my birthday, I peed on a stick.  Now, I knew it wouldn't tell me anything because it's only 6 DPO ... but it's my day and I can do anything I want!

Yesterday Momma B and I drove up the coast on our way to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes in Anaheim.  We stopped at the spot I proposed to her last year and watched the sunset.  It was such a great way to start off our holiday and lift our spirits!  I'm such a lucky, spoiled woman.  Momma B is amazing.

We've already started a family tradition called the 12 Days of Christmas in which we do something holiday related on twelve separate days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  It's our way of keeping the joy and love in the season ... and the fun!  Last year my mom and sister were here to join in some of it.  This year we're trying to fit it all in with my nocturnal work schedule, but are excited that Momma B's cousin and her partner will be joining us for several days.  The fun lies in the challenge (of finding not only the time, but making each year a little bit unique) and in looking toward the future and sharing these memories and the making of new ones as our family expands. Honestly, nothing gets me more excited than Christmas ... the air just feels different, even in 70 degree weather.

  1. Happy Birthday! And the Twelve Days of Christmas sounds like a great tradition! We're slowly getting into holiday mode around here, delayed somewhat by PB's all-consuming physics class. (The final is tomorrow, and then it will be done! Huzzah! Anyway.) But I'm really looking forward to getting the tree and decorating everything. And maybe making some cookies. I like holiday cookies.

    On a totally random note, do you mind if I ask how you get your pictures to look the way they do? It's kind of awesome. Thanks!

  2. Thanks! It's a lot of fun to think of at least one new thing to do to celebrate and, yet, all the repeats are that much more special. It was difficult last year because of my school schedule too ... esp as I was graduating last December, so I feel for you guys. =)

    And I love making cookies this time of year too. I'm going to make these cookies this weekend, I think. =)

    Oh the pictures are from my iPhone. I have this App called Hipstamatic that has a bunch of different filters and flashes so you get really retro looking pics. I love it!
