Happy Thanksgiving! So we spent the holiday week with Andrew's family in California and Arizona and it was a blast! The whole crew was there--Mom & Dad Garlock, Summer & Bryan Katie & Tanner, the nieces and nephew, Grandma Jeanne, and Uncle Auggie--and we tore up Prescott, AZ. We ate tons of yummy food, I discovered a new love of thrift store shopping (thanks to Jeanne), and we got to experience the chill of winter in Arizona's "Christmas City".
Back in California, I was able to take my first drive through Beverly Hills decked out in Christmas decor, eat at the famous Tito's Tacos, go to Disneyland, and hit up some amazing sales at the Grove outdoor mall. The only thing I didn't do on this trip is take pictures! I'm so bad...but here is the ONE I took at the grove with all the pretty lights behind us.
And now -- on to Christmas!! Yay! Anyone who knows me will tell that I am a huge Christmas fan. Haven't slept a Christmas Eve night yet! Andrew didn't know what he was marrying. So, right when we got back from our Thanksgiving trip, I got to decorating our humble abode. My mom always does an amazing job of decorating the house, so mine looks like a feeble attempt--but it's a start!
So, everyone, have a happy holiday on the way to Christmas! We'll celebrate with you once finals are done in couple weeks...
