Weekend trip

This weekend Matt and I spent time in St. Louis. It was really a nice time! I love getting away with him and just enjoying each others company. We saw wicked, the musical. It was great! We also at so much good food. It was wonderful, especially the peanut butter pie. I hope you all had a nice weekend and are getting to enjoy the season. Happy last night of Hanukkah!

Holiday Tidings

Hello All,

December has been off to a good start. My sister came to visit for the first weekend. We had a really nice time and got to really catch up on things. We shopped and baked cookies and chatted. A normal Meredith girl thing. Sadly, only two photos were taken! These sugar cookies were so delicious!! Nom nom nom.

She also helped me decorate our Christmas tree. Christmas trees are really the best park to Christmas. They are so pretty and smell good. I find myself always sitting on the couch during this month. Not just because I am lazy, but because I want to look at it! We use white lights over here in the Reddish apartment. I like that.

Yesterday, I did some more shopping. Almost all of the gifts are wrapped and under the tree. I was on a mission to find stockings for the pups, and get hangers for our stockings. Mom made us these stockings. Matt's is already filled, lucky goose.

The dogs are showing some really good restraint. This is Daisy's stocking. They can smell the rawhide candy cane, and tend to sit and stare at their stockings. They have not gotten them down though, even though they definitely could. It is right at their height...Good dogs.

I only have two more books to read for this year. I just finished reading Bossypants by Tina Fey. It was hilarious. Two of my good friends had recommended it to me before, and I finally picked it up. It inspired me to start watching 30 Rock, which...I know, that has been around forever. I kept watching random episodes, and they weren't too funny because I didn't really understand why all of the characters were so neurotic.  Now, I am sure my neighbors keep hearing me burst into laughter.

Today, I worked on getting the Christmas cards done. This is a big stack. Only about five more until I am done I would say. They are cute-so be on the lookout!

Only 2 more weeks of school here in Columbia. Matt gets done this week and on Friday we plan to go see The Hobbit. Excited!!! That is one thing we have been doing a lot of lately-seeing movies. I like it. Last night we saw Breaking Dawn Part 2. The night before we saw Part 1. Part 2 definitely gets my vote for being better. Other movies I can't wait to see: Anna Karenina and Les Miserables!

I hope you all are having a good holiday season. If you need me, I'll be in front of the tree.
