Happy 1st of December

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving, mine went very well. I'll of course be catching up with all of your stories over the next few days, mixed in with making Christmas cards and getting ready for another trip to the desert. (I promise to not try to fly this time) The bf said we can decorate the trailer...I'm going to put up lights all throughout the inside, I'm so excited. The bf is looking into getting a blow up lit up thing to put on top of the trailer...I hope he gets one, it would be SO cool.

I cannot express how excited I am that it's finally December. I brought my little American Girl Christmas tree home with me and have that all lit and decorated over on my art box in the corner. I'm going to string lights up around the top of my apartment sometime in the next couple days I hope. The bf's mom got me the most beautiful nativity that sits perfectly on top of my DVD shelves. We're partially through decorating at work, the office looks great. The manager and I strung old ethernet cords from the ceiling, wrapped them in gold garland and hung paper candy balls on each loop. It's so awesome...we're lucky the manager is so tall, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to reach things.

December is getting jam packed full of fun holiday activities, my weekends are basically booked now through Christmas. And I can't wait! I spent this evening working on my Christmas cards. The bf bought me this great stamp set and I got the crazy idea to make my own cards this year. I got 4 models made tonight, I want to make 1 or 2 others and then go ahead and make duplicates of all of them. Luckily the duplicates won't take as long as the originals since I'll only be copying them and not designing them. They're not perfect, but I think they work. I'm so excited. There will be pictures of those when I'm done with them. Along with the picture of me on the quad in my gear (the bf hasn't sent them to me yet) Maybe I'll have some new desert ones to add after this weekend too. :) I'll have to get photos of the decorations in the trailer! The bf bought a brand new Canon XSI at Costco the day after Thanksgiving...it's BEAUTIFUL. Incidentally, Costco was cheaper than the Black Friday sales and much calmer too. I'm in love with a camera. It's seriously SOOOOO beautiful. I can't wait to upload pictures that I take with the camera. I think he's bringing the camera out with us this weekend, so that should be great.

Well, I've got to open in the morning so I ought to be getting to sleep here. Hopefully my phone doesn't turn off sometime during the night again like it did last night...luckily I woke up before I was late to work. (I was NOT pleased with my phone) I hope you have a fantastic week, I'll be around to catch up with you all throughout the next few days.

I really am looking forward to some pictures. As I said before, you are...

"the girl with the camera,"...

"looking through the lens."...

Where are the pictures?

It sounds like you are having a fun time and you and the bf are having the time of your life!

Gramma Ann-Haha, all very true. Mostly there haven't been pictures lately because I haven't been on my main computer (and I'm slacking) We are having a great time though. :)
