1. Christmas!
  2. Ugly sweater parties
  3. Our four-year ugly sweater party anniversary (the event that kicked it all off).
  4. Raking leaves, and then raking them again
  5. This dude defending his thesis today
  6. My family’s gift-giving tradition: Instead of gifts, we each put together a few scrapbook pages (fun shapes and cutesy sayings optional) of what happened in our lives that year. Each person makes enough copies of their own for everyone, so we all end up with a scrapbook of each others’ goings-on. (True, we’ve been slacking the past couple of years, but it’s back on!)
  7. Bossypants. And anything Tina Fey. I’m a Tina-phile.
  8. Blanche the Christmas Dog
  9. Minimalist lights
  10. wimp.com
  11. Pepto-Bismol Christmas cookies
  12. Cool paint jobs
  13. On various things
  14. My high school friend (and prom date) Colte being on The Rosie Show! (He’s the piano player.)
  15. Seventeen of my loved-ones jam-packed in my sister’s house for Christmas
  16. My slippers
  17. Brown hair dye color
  18. Friends who bug me to update my blog (makes me feel loved)
  19. Awkward family photos
  20. The Kindle (especially getting library books!)
  21. My 27th birthday on the 27th (yeah, I’m okay with it)
  22. A bunch of my friends having babies
  23. Indian food
  24. Low heat bills (FYI- setting the heat between 52 and 62 promotes lots of snuggling. And whining.)
  25. Stan finishing school and officially being a Hydrogeologist/Hydrologist/Geoscientist among other cool titles!

I know I’ve been neglecting the blog, and I do apologize to all of my wonderful fans. YOU guys are the real stars. Ha. Really though, thanks. Sometimes your life is just too crazy to blog, ya know? Or, you know, you just find yourself doing other things. We’ve been a little distracted lately because Stan is finishing school and we’re waiting to hear about his future employment, which could mean big changes for us. Oooh, I love being cryptic on the blog. Not that it’s that cryptic.

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!
