Finally Over

What better way to celebrate the end of finals than a ridiculous amount of tacos from Lone Star Taqueria, their fish and steak tacos are amazing!

Now that school is done we are really enjoying Christmas time and taking advantage of all our time together.

Tinsel Town

Christmas villages are much more fun than just making a gingerbread house from a kit, especially when you use the elementary method of graham crackers and milk cartons (thank you Matt for insisting we do this).

Welcome to Tinsel Town 


yes that is a cinnamon santa coming down the chimney!

This was probably one of the most fun Christmas activities ever!

lint is a shell's best friend

The other day Matt and I were debating about what we would name our hypothetical dogs. We won't be getting them for a long time, Matt wishes we were getting one tomorrow.

Luckily this video, which is probably one of our all time favorites ended our disagreement.


One day we are going to get two dogs named Marcel and Allen, Matt is really excited about it!

Starting Christmas Early

All the snow lately has inspired me to break out the Christmas music a little early this year. I usually wait til the day after Thanksgiving but I couldn't help myself. Here are two of my favorite Christmas albums. I love all the classics but I love these two albums because they are classics or new songs done by some of my favorite artists.

This one is my favorite

and this awesome single I just came across

A night at Hogwarts

So I am a serious Harry Potter nerd and I am lucky enough to have friends who are just as nerdy as me. We have dressed up and gone out at midnight to get almost every book, and when those were done we did the same for the movies. I am trying to convert Matt to becoming an HP addict however I have only managed to get him to read books 1 and 2. With the first part of the 7th movie coming out this is one of our last midnight dress up opportunities left. Luckily my friends Lauren and Abby along with Abby's amazing family decided to make the most of it and had an amazing party before the movie. This was a serious HP night 60 people were invited and everyone had to RSVP their character so there were no duplicates and to make sure we had all the necessary characters there. Everyone was sorted when they got there and sat at their assigned tables in the great hall.

 The Great Hall

 House Points

There were so many amazing costumes
George, Young Harry, Mad Eye, and Fred

Bellatrix, George, Fred, and Hermione

The amazing family that made all this possible
Tonks, Luna Lovegood, Rita Skeeter, McGonagall, and Young Harry

These were just a few of the awesome people that were there. To see more pictures you can go to my friend Lauren's blog.

After the party we rented out a theatre and went to see the 7th movie. I have never really loved the movies, they just can't measure up to the books but this one was actually really good. All in all it was one of the best nights ever! I am looking forward to July 31st for the next time we have a night like this!

Husband and I started P90X on Monday. Dear old uncle Tony (the freakishly ripped and annoying instructor) has been giving us quite the workout. It has been good so far unless you are the person who lives below us, in that case you probably want to kill us.

Wedding Pictures

Here are a few pictures from our wedding. Our computer still doesn't want to read the discs from our photographer but you can see more here on her blog. I loved our photographer! She was so much fun to work with and did an amazing job with our engagements, bridals, wedding dinner, and wedding day. I loved getting to know her and her husband and would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.
