Soon Turned Out Had A Heart Of Glass

 Day 288.
Happy New Year Eve!!
This is what my new year's eve has been. We had delicious chili and played some board games. We can't go out since Andrew is on call at work, but we're making the best of it and this new year's eve is turning out awesome. I am warm too!

I Know You Want Me, You Know I Want Ya

 Day 287.
I love coloring. It de-stresses me very well. I got myself a coloring book for Christmas and it was a great decision.

I Mean, You're So Shy And I'm Loving Your Tie You're Like Slicker Than The Guy With The Thing On His Eye

We are getting closer and closer to our vacation!!

Old MacDonald Had A Farm

Day 285.
This fluffy little guy came and visited at work! His new daddy is a manager and since no one is at work this week, he brought him in for everyone to share the love! Lookin' good Dallas!

I've Got Sunshine On A Cloudy Day With My Girl

 Day 284.
Andrew and I went a little adventuring after work today. I have already posted some of these pictures, but this time, I brought my nice camera. I really like how a lot of these came out. Also, I do realize it is 2 days later than Christmas, but we're not busy anymore!

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Day 282.
Merry Christmas!!
Look! Even Santa stopped by and gave us a present! It was Jenga. Santa... always so nice and thoughtful.  
 Evil tickle monster gloves. Andrew created the Tickle bug while we were dating and he seems to be collecting tickle things. This is highly unfortunate for me, but he is so much more ticklish than me. :)
Below is Lacy! She's probably my most favorite dog ever!

And Since We've No Place To Go Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Day 281.
How adorable is this baby?!? I know, I know. She is incredibly cute. Her little reindeer hat and her big chubby cheeks! A+ job Rachel and Bruno! 
 Our Christmas tree! Sorry for the messy room, but that's what you get when you have Christmas in a small apartment. Below is one of our most funly wrapped presents.

O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum

 Day 280.
Andrew and I were trying to be good savers and decided to make food tonight, instead of ordering out. Then, Andrew (for the first time) turned on the wrong burner, with the kitchen timer on top, then walked away. Luckily, he walked out a little later before the batteries inside this thing exploded, but there was definitely a one foot flame. Thankfully, nothing was damaged except the timer! Whoo! 
It did make us scrub the kitchen down though!

I'm Not The Same One See What The Time's Done

 Day 279.
It is time to get a little bit sad and serious on the blog today. 
Five years ago today, I got a call on my way to a winter holiday monotonic job that my best friend had gone into labor. She was originally due in May. Needless to say, Eddison Alleen was born way too early and survived an amazingly long 12 days. Today being her birthday, my best friend, Eddison's little sister and I deliver ornaments to all the babies on the NICU floor like someone did for Courtney 5 years ago. 
After we visit the NICU, we visit Eddison's grave and say a little happy birthday prayer.   
As you might remember, we do a March for Dimes in honor of Eddison every May. She was such a special little girl and has a very strong momma. They all deserve the greatest happiness in the world. 

 Eddison's little sister, Ry. 

 Until next time baby girl.

Pa Rum Pum Pum Pum I Have No Gift To Bring

 Day 277.
Right after our holiday party, we had a dessert pot luck at work after lunch. My friend at work made this lemon meringue pie and it was SO good. I have such a sweet tooth.

Me, I Want A Hula Hoop We Can Hardly Stand The Wait Please Christmas, Don't Be Late.

 Day 276.
This is the Liberty Hotel in Cambridge, where my holiday party was this year. They had these Christmas trees hanging and very unique features to the hotel because it used to be a jail! It was a fun time. And gorgeous scenery. If only I had my beautiful camera...

Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time

 Day 274.
Now that I am done with my class (!!), I have time to focus on my camera skills again! I came across this blog that detailed important camera facts and it included photos as well. I had been looking for an internet post like that for a while. So, these photos are in a way in a result of that tutorial I found. 

Just wait until after Christmas. ;)
