Season of Favorite Things

Tis the season, so they say... This time of year for me is filled with all of my favorite things; amazing family, awesome friends, beautiful lights and decorations.. a realization of so many things to be thankful for.
Everyone kept asking me what I wanted for Christmas... and I literally couldnt think of anything that I needed/wanted (okay, maybe a new computer bag, but thats only because the handle on mine has a fight with me every time I put it down as I get on a plane.. which we all know is OFTEN!) We truly are blessed with all we have - and thats all I need!

We were just hanging out last night after an amazing dinner with Miss Amber at Uncle Julios, and I was looking at our tree and thought it would be fun to share with you my 5 most favorite ornaments on our tree. And I asked J if he would like to do the same... he said yes, so enjoy seeing our difference of opinions ;)

1. J & I had our first "vacation" in New Orleans... I had a huge program there for work almost a year ago, barely slept in 10 days and he met me once it was all over... we had such a great time even though I couldnt make it much past 9 pm!

2. San Francisco Trip - we had just gotten engaged and I was more than overwhlemed - such an amazing experience and a perfect get-away after our engagement - One of my favorite cities

3. The fact that the Aggie ornament gets to be on the tree is a feat within itself - of course I'm excited!

4. When I was little my dad and I used to make fishy faces... my parents gave us this ornament this year, and well - its perfect!

5. Recently I noticed an ornament I didnt personally add to the tree... and this makes my heart warm - I love the old school ornament and probably the first one J has ever had :)

Jarrett's Top 5:
1. This is in my Top 5 becuase this is the only time I get to talk shit about Ashley in this blog - ever. Wreck em Tech!
2. This was one of the best times of my life hiking with my fiance in Muir Woods ouside of San Fran and is made of one of the Red Woods from the park
3. This is from my 27th birthday party - Not only did we celebrate my birthday, but both of our dads (Bob & Scott) birthdays in a big bash! It was a great time and the first of many celebrations for the 3 of us.
4. This is our first ornament of our collection we bought together in the French Quarter. It was late January and there were endless options - this obviously was our favorite.
5. I picked this one because it is the first official ornament in my "extravagant" collection and was the only ornament in my collection until our visit to the French Quarter.
Merry, Merry Christmas - Enjoy your loved ones... we sure will!
Love -
