Casual Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

Chris came home last week and tomorrow is Christmas, so life is good! Earlier this week we went to a casual Christmas party at our friend's house to play games . We ate lots of snacks, had our own personal Martinelli sparkling cider, and Chris and I won the card game (you'll get to see my excited face)! I have known these girls for over ten years and it makes me pretty happy that our husbands get along :) We aren't going to be in Utah forever so I want to enjoy these friends as much as I can while we're still here!
I'm so grateful Chris put together a little video of our fun night together. I'm loving Christmas this year and am a little sad it's going to be all over tomorrow, but hope you enjoy it with your families!


Wreath Making with Piper and Scoot

A few weeks ago, Jess and I went to a wreath making class held at Piper and Scoot! We made it our Christmas gift to each other since both of us are trying to lean towards investing in experiences, rather than "stuff." Plus we would get a wreath out of it, so why not? Funny side note: I mentally prepared myself that learning a new skill was a good thing, but that my wreath probably wouldn't look very good since it would be my first time. Turns out, the skilled Ashley Nackos pre-made our wreaths and we just decorated them! I'll just have to practice my new skills next year ;)
 ^^The entire room smelled amaaazing!

Happy early Christmas to us! Thanks Jess for going with me, fan-girling over cool people with me, and convincing me to buy that beautiful buffalo check shirt haha. Wreath making was the best way to get this holiday season started!
