Early last month my sister made some pictures of us at a park near our house. It was a really nice day out and we had a cool breeze. Thankfully the park wasn't crowded when we were there! 

Reagan did great and enjoyed all the treats she got throughout our little session ;)

and we used this one for our Christmas card!!

I'll be sharing our Christmas card soon!

I don't have much time to share everything today, so I am just dropping in to leave a few updates. bullet point style!

- We had a great Thanksgiving with each other and our families. I still can't believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone. Sad it went by so quickly!

- We went on our anniversary cruise and had the best time! It was so good to get away just the two of us, but goodness, we missed our sweet puppy so much!!

- We decorated for Christmas before we left and we are both so glad we did that! It was so nice to come home and enjoy them and not have to worry about pulling boxes out and getting started on decorating.

- I think we have both decided that taking the week after Thanksgiving off was one of the best ideas we have ever made....7 business days off, paid, and a total of 11 days AWAY from the office (6 of those without access to our work email!!!!) See what I mean, best idea ever.

- We have decided we need a gym membership and juicer for Christmas because Thanksgiving meals and then an all inclusive cruise....SO. MUCH. FOOD. #thankgoodnessforstretchypants

- I'll be sharing my Christmas cards soon! I was able to get some addressed and out before we left for our trip and I only have a few left.

- We bought a 12ft Christmas tree!!!! I'll share the story on that soon, but we are loving it!

Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I'll be able to recap our Thanksgiving, our cruise, our Christmas cards, our Christmas decorations, and some other fun Christmas related posts!

Here is one picture I took while we were in Cozumel...
definitely wishing this was my view again today! ;)

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with your families! I can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs from over the past two weeks.

I love Netflix and I love being able to watch just about any show that I want within a few minutes, but what I hate is when we finish up a series and I'm searching the internet for another good one to start. With it getting dark out so early now and the weather is finally starting to cool down, I find myself just wanting to curl up on the couch after a long day and binge watch a good show with Matthew. So here is a list of some shows that are binge worthy (the bold ones I've already watched):

1. Gilmore Girls
2. Lost 
3. Nashville
4. The Office
5. Once Upon a Time
6. How I Met Your Mother
7. Friends
8. Game of Thrones
9. Modern Family
10. One Tree Hill
11. Sons of Anarchy 
12. Walking Dead
13. Vampire Diaries
14. Breaking Bad
15. House of Cards
16. Grays Anatomy 
17. Friday Night Lights
18. West Wing
19. How to Get Away with Murder
20. Parenthood 

I really want to watch Nashville and How to Get Away with Murder soon! Those two are definitely next on my list. I've watched a good bit of Friends but never in order so I want to start that one from the beginning and watch it all the way through. Also, if you have been around here for any length of time I'm sure you have heard me talk about How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) it just happens to be one of our favorite shows. If you haven't watched it yet I would definitely recommend it! So fix your favorite soup/chili in the crock pot and pick a new show to start!

It's that time of the year again, the temps are starting to drop, people are docking their boats and putting up their bathing suits until next year, and pulling out their sweaters, leggings and boots.

Here are some fun winter date ideas that y'all can do this year!

ONE | Drive around and look at Christmas lights
TWO | Take pictures at a Christmas tree farm
THREE | Go shopping for an angle tree child or fill a shoebox.
FOUR | Have a progressive dinner in your town.
FIVE | Pull out the air mattress or sleeping bags and have a sleepover in front of the fireplace 
SIX | Go on a hike
SEVEN | Make dinner together at home - this cookbook is perfect
EIGHT | Go to a local Christmas play
NINE | Go get hot chocolate and walk around your town square
TEN | Decorate Christmas cookies
ELEVEN | Have another couple over and build gingerbread houses and have soup night - this soup is incredible!
TWELVE | Set up the self timer and take a couple of Christmas pictures in front of your Christmas tree
THIRTEEN | Go to a few football games and grab hot chocolate while you're there to warm up
FOURTEEN | Have a cheesy Christmas movie marathon and make these
