I'm a little bummed right now. We put up lights, I got out all of the decorations we had from last year (all 5 of them) and we bought a Christmas tree (FRESH TREES all the way!). The sad part is, we haven't had the chance to decorate it yet.
With school being so intense, I get home from work and go straight to the couch/bed/floor/anything. Even though there has been time the past two nights to decorate, I just can't bring myself and El Guapo to get up. We like to sit together and do nothing. It's nice. But sad.
It needs to happen tomorrow. Hopefully I can motivate myself.

Ring Christmas Bells

This semester, I signed up to be in the institute choir. I've been in band for 9 years and haven't done anything for the past three- I forgot how fun it is to perform and have a concert to invite everyone to! We performed this year at the Temple Lights and it was so beautiful and fun!

It was cold out so a lot of us wore our coats/hats/scarves like the Arizona wimps we are:

P.s. those cute beanie'd and scarf'd people in front of us was the bell choir we sang with Bella Musica.

Here I am second in from the right on the bottom row. Too bad you can't see my fabulous tights in the picture. I bought them just for this concert :)

It was a nice and {Christmasy} night. It's nice to finally not feel guilty singing those Christmas songs that El Guapo and I have been singing since July haha oops.

Ok. My Grinchiness is now cured. It is officially the first day of December. Commence Christmas carols {oops. we've been singing those since July...} Decorating, and Hot Chocolate {with peppermint}:

Thanksgiving was fun. Ironically, even though El Guapo was off of work for Thursday thru Sunday, we ended up spending a lot of time apart, doing our respective girls and guys activities. Gotta love the stache!

Here I am at the house after finishing my Lemon Mirengue Pie :) This year I added vanilla, cream of tarter, and a little bit of melted marshmellow and let me say, delicious!

And we can't forget this little devil in disguise!

Who would think that this cutie has been peeing ALL OVER MY HOUSE!?!? We are trying a new technique to rid him of this nasty habit. Aparently, cats won't pee where their food is. So his food is now in the middle of my front room.

As for projects, My most recent was one that I saw on {the Inspired Room}
My sisters and I did this one together, and let me say, after 2 serious burns from the hot glue gun, I am glad it is finished.

It's a simple wreath made from old book pages :)

Love it!
