I have been a craptastic blogger as of late.

But- I've been up to a lot.

1. Thanksgiving break. 5 blissful days without work. 5 days that went by far too fast.

2. I met with the photographer and got our professional wedding pictures! More on that later...

3. I met with the videographer and got our professional wedding video. It is phenomenal and I'm so glad we decided to go with a videographer as well as a photographer.

4. Thanksgiving with my family! My parents only live 45 minutes away, but they're always complaining about how they want to see us more, so we decided to stay for not one, but two nights. My cousins, aunt and uncle joined us and we had quite the celebration. Lets just say that it involved a lot of wine, a lot of dancing, and a lot of laughing.

and another.. John love his gang signs (joking).

5. Christmas shopping. I don't believe in Black Friday, but we did hit up some of the sales on Saturday.

6. John's grandmother's 99th birthday party!

7. Cutting down our Christmas tree with John's side of the family.

Here's the manly man with his saw...

Our little family and our HUGE tree (it's the one on the left). If it gives you a frame of reference my husband is 6'3"ish

The gorgeous tree farm.

8. My husband's best friend and best man (his wife) had a baby last night. She was 10 days early and the first of our day-to-day friends to have a kid. We visited them in the hospital and I held baby Charlotte for an hour. I really want one to hold and kiss and cuddle, but I'm not quite ready to have one for life.

8. Now it's back to the grind and I'm back to scheming up ways to retire this year. =)
