I feel like Christmas is flying by this year.  Our vacation really put me behind.  We finally got our tree last week and got it all decorated last weekend.  I got the inside of the house finished too and decorated but I still haven't finished the outside.  All we normally do outside is wreaths on the windows but my suction cups broke and home depot is out so they still aren't up!  UGH!  Oh well.  Here are some of the pics from our Christmas card this year.  I absolutly love getting the mail this time of year!  Everyone puts so much time and effort into their cards and I just love getting them.  Our kitchen is full of great's so nice to see all of your beautiful smiling faces every day! 

Thank you to Kelli Alfreds for our Christmas card photo session.  You did a great job with Ally and we had a great time.  Hope everyone is having a great Holiday season.

The Big Apple...

The week after Thanksgiving TJ, my Mom, Jeff, and I headed to New York City for a big city Christmas Vacation.  We had a great time but were so ready to come home after a long week of sightseeing.  We got to see some amazing things.  It really got me in the Christmas spirit and decorating the house when I got back was even more exciting.  Here are some pictures from our trip.  Hope everyone is having a great Holiday season!
Rockafeller Center

The Tree at Rockafeller Center

Skating Rink...we had lunch at that cafe you see.  It was great. 
There were skaters skating while we ate...very cool.

We never made it up early enough to get on the Today show but we did do the NBC tour.

Rockafeller Center...I think this building, the main building is called the GE Building.  I really don't know though.  That's sad isn't it...

Amazing view from the Top of the Rock

I wish I could say this was our hotel, The Plaza...but that would be a lie.  It was beautiful but our home away from home was the Hampton Inn Madison Square Garden.  It was great and all we needed!

Weekend with Sisters on the Plains!

WAR EAGLE!!!  Last Saturday I got the pleasure of spending all day with some of my favorite Sorority Sisters!  It's so rare that we get to see each other so I really love when football season comes around.  It's the one place where we can all meet up and catch up.  Boles came for the weekend and so did her BFF from high school, Laura.  We had a great time cheering on our tigers even though we were surrounded by Georgia fans high in the upper deck.  We didn't mind one bit considering Boles got the tickets for us for FREE!!!  We hung out a great tailgate that was put on by our SS Casey's Boyfriends family.  He had this big truck with a trailor that was actually a big grill.  It was crazy...this thing had a cooler, grill, satalite, etc all in one!  The news even interviewed him while we were tailgating.  It was pretty awesome.  All of us girls then walked to the paid tents where my company, Blairs company and some others had spots.  It was a pretty cool set up and we may even do it next year as a pledge class.  When you buy a spot they actually give you a drop off hour, get the stuff out of your car, set it up, and even watch it all for you while your in the game.  It's great!  If you pay a bit extra they will even set up a flat screen and satalite so you can watch other games before or after the AU game.  Very cool!  Well I'll quit are some pics of the weekend.  Thank you Boles for a great time!!!

Last beach trip of the year...

Well this trip was mid-October so I'm a little's been a busy month!  My new job is going great and thank goodness Holiday Market (is over) was successful.  TJ and I did get to go see Boles and Joe for one last beach trip and an awesome fishing trip!  Joe is a true Floridian and has really turned my Boles into one too.  They showed us an amazing time, fed us great, and even sent us home with some fish for the freezer!  Here are some pics from our trip.  Thanks Boles and Joe for a great time!  I am praying TJ will take me to the Georgia game so we can see yall again soon.
