Merry Christmas!

Daniel and I made the trek to the midwest to spend Christmas with his family this year. It was a long 18 hour road trip. A highlight of the trip was when we accidently stumbled across one of our favorite BBQ places, Two Dudes BBQ in Missouri. We come across it 2 1/2 years ago on our way from Idaho to Atlanta. It was a Festivus Miracle! Here are some highlights of Christmas Day.

Daniel putting on his new man-apron. I had to be really sneaky when I was making him this since he was out of school and I worked all day.

Here he is outfitted with the man-apron, kitchen utensils, hat and work gloves.

This was a 'sweet' surprise from Mike & London, an amazing box full of treats!

My niece Emery with her new Christmas ornament. My Aunts made us kids ornaments each year until we graduated high school so I'm trying to continue the tradition with my nieces and nephews.

This is becoming a George family tradition to go to King Kong on Christmas while they are giving away free meals.

Daniel with his free Gyro, fries, and orange drink (but you can't see the drink, its in the cup holder)

I had a really great Christmas. This year I tried not to focus on presents and getting my hopes up for things I would like but instead more on service and the true meaning of Christmas. Another thing that has helped is Daniel and I have been reading The New Testament and have almost finished reading the first four gospels. I have really enjoyed reading more about the life of Christ, and give him credit for all the many blessings in my life.

Happy Halloween

Daniel and I got dressed up last night and went trick-or-treating. We didn't get a lot of loot but it was really fun. We went up to one house and there was a little girl helping her mom pass out candy and she said to her mom that there were a lot of adults trick-or-treating and I told her that we weren't adults that we were still kids. I dressed up as a 1950's house wife with apron and all and Daniel was my bread winner husband. My friend invited us back to where she lives and the community had a haunted trail. Daniel got a kick out of this Zombie.

Quarter Century

Today I turned 25. I don't feel any different. My mom said that I'm suppose to be mature now. I'll let you know when that happens. Mawahahaha! Daniel made me key lime cup cakes that are amazing. He surprised me earlier this month with a pair of my favorite Teva flip flops to replace that ones that I lost last summer in lake my parents live on. Today we had me play the hot and cold game to find my other birthday present. But he switched hot and cold on me so cold was actually closer. Anyway we got me a new sewing book that I've wanted. He had hid it in the freezer. What a funny kid. Daniel asked me last night what my top 5 moments were in my first quarter century and they were:
1. Getting married to Daniel of course
2. Riding my motorcycle on a track day at the Mid Ohio Race track
3. Our Italy/Switzerland trip last summer
4. Swimming in our favorite swimming spot in Idaho (random I know but it is just what stuck out to me at that moment)
5. Cosmo!

I have had so many more amazing moments in my life. Those were just the first ones that came to my mind. I feel really grateful for the people in my life and the blessing that I've received. Thank you for all your birthday wishes and yes it was a 'Happy' birthday.

New Apartment!

Daniel and I moved to a new apartment and it is amazing! It consists of the right side of this bungelo. It is just around the corner from our old apartment so it is still in downtown Savannah. In our three years of marriage I feel that we have finally upgraded. Before this ever apartment we moved in to kept getting smaller. The house was built in the late 1800's and was recently renovated. It has two bedrooms, one bath, a big front living area and an amazing kitchen. I feel that being able to live here is a huge blessing in our lives.

National Doughnut Day!

Daniel and I celebrated National Doughnut Day today and each got a free doughnut at Krispy Kreme. I figured they would just give us a plain glazed doughnut, but they let us pick any doughnut in the case! My eyes lit up. We both tried out their new lemon doughnut. This might be my new favorite holiday.

Savannah Fashion Show

Some of the local boutiques in Savannah, including the one I work for, got together and put on a fashion show. It was an awesome event. Here is a link to some more pictures of the night.

Three Years Later

Daniel and I are celebrating our three year anniversary! We went to the beach this morning and had fun laying out since its too cold to get in the water. Then we went to this awesome little french cafe downtown for lunch. We sat next to a group of older couples and we talked a little bit. I mentioned that it was our three year anniversary. They looked at us and asked again how long and I said three years. Then one of the guys asked if we even knew each other yet. I laughed and thought that was really funny. Then I asked how long he and his wife have been married and he said forever, and then told me they have been married for 48 years. I'm excited to celebrate 48 years with Daniel some day plus eternity!

1,000 Day Anniversary!

Daniel surprised me this morning with Muffin Bunny!!! It is a gift for our 1,000 Day Anniversary plus 42 days because Daniel miscalculated. It is the softest, funniest little stuffed bunny ever. Its from the company jellycat which we carry at the store I work at. I've been wanting him ever since we got him in. Thank you Honey Bunny!

Christmas Pics

Merry belated Christmas!

We drove up to my parents house in Michigan and took Cosmo with us. For the most part he was a pretty good road trip buddy.

This is a mouse I made Cosmo. It only took him a couple days to completely destroy it. I even bought real wool felt hoping that it would be more durable.

It was been a tradition in my family to make the nieces and nephews Christmas ornaments. My Aunts did it for me growing up so now I have an awesome stash of ornaments that were mostly all hand made. So I'm trying to keep the tradition going. These are the ornaments I made for my nieces and nephews this year. Little Christmas birds.

Some of Daniel's goodies he got for Christmas. My Mom didn't have the energy to put together stockings this year so she said I could do them if I wanted. So I got everyone nerf guns and a cheesy $5 DVD and some candy. There were 7 of us and we had an all out war with our nerf guns. It was really fun. I remember growing up and all 5 of my brothers would get nerf guns and there would be darts and nerf balls flying all over the house but I was always left defenseless. So it was fun this year to be part of that.
