- Wedding: May 2011 - Trinity Lutheran Church & Idlewild Country Club
My parents got me a GPS! I’m totally excited because I get lost constantly. I have the worst sense of direction – but hopefully I won’t be lost anymore!
My mom also got me a Cuttlebug which was a super surprise and super exciting. I swear, I couldn’t scrapbook without one ;-).

I love my GPS, I even programmed it to tell me where all the Dairy Queens are between my house in NE to my moms house in MN. I can actually get around Minneapolis without getting lost or stuck in traffic.

Having DH home for once, and reading to him all day while he looked like he was falling asleep. Reading out loud to one another (I call it “book club,” it started in college when my friends and I used to get st*#$& and take turns reading to each other in a little cabin in the mountains) is one of my favorite things to do. It is so rare to have DH home! But this time I baked cookies, we no longer cook our brains 🙂
And, DH gave me two of my favorite albums and we danced together 🙂 It was a complete surprise because we weren’t doing presents this year. He even wrapped them- even though we didn’t have any wrapping paper. He designed it in Illustrator and printed it out 🙂 It was a really sweet surprise.
Then went and played fetch with my dog 🙂 We did not have any water because the water main BROKE at our apartments- get this- again! The same thing happened at Thanksgiving (ironically!). I could not believe it on Christmas eve when I saw the manager out there with a shovel. We had no water from 3 on Christmas eve until 3 on Christmas day. It is amazing what a difference it makes! We didn’t want to cook our turkey without any water do to the dishes. It was one of those Christmases were you just make the best of what you have. And it was my favorite Christmas yet 🙂

I actually have 3 favorites…
First, my pink acoustic guitar from FI! I was so freakin’ excited when I opened it! *Don’t mind our messy living room*
Next, swarovski earrings from my parents for my wedding day…
And finally, a 6 piece luggage set from my Aunt and Uncle for our honeymoon…
I’m a lucky girl!
