it's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!

they always DECK out the lobbies at my work, it's so festive! (however, that tree on the right? i had to string the christmas lights on it - and i really almost lost my christmas spirit in the process. i was swearing and sweating and i'm pretty sure i broke a strand. my bad.) i have a new appreciation for anyone who doesn't buy a pre-lit tree. respect.

we got a last minute call from some friends with extra christmas devotional tickets, lucky ducks! of all the festive things we have done & will do this christmas, i don't think this one can be topped. it was pure magic. (also, motab's "the first noel" will make you cry and give you chills. i swear it.)

um, excuse my mid-laugh psychopath picture up there. after the devotional, we met up with some family at the tree of life in draper. it was honestly way better than i had expected! it sparkles like the eiffel tower light show - and the whole park, all of the lights, the excited crowds - it was all warm fuzzy material. 

how cute is our little christmas tree?! i know it's tiny, but that makes it all the more adorable to me.  (side note: my mother in law gifted us a golden gate bridge ornament last year, because we honeymooned there - and this year she gave us an nyc taxi since we took our anniversary trip there. little does she know how ironic is is to have both new york and san fran represented on our tree. ha!) we put up our stockings on the windowsill, the garland is still lit around the window, and i talked jordan into hanging some lights across the ceiling. now our entire living room is festive. i love waking up to the glow of christmas lights dancing in. i can't even handle the coziness.

and let's finish off with a few selfies, one featuring in n out. because, duh.
