we love the holidays


after four years of marriage we have finally purchased our very own christmas tree. yes that is right, we have never put up a christmas tree before. we are never usually home for christmas and we would normally put out our cute little nativity set, and that was usually enough for decorations in our home. but not this year. which is funny because we now have three cats that like to get into everything and as soon as we put up our tree they have been chewing on it and trying to sleep in it. right now it is in a very sad state which is why i have no pictures of it, but as soon as we buy more ornaments and fix the branches i will gladly show the world our very first christmas tree.

other things we are enjoying this holiday season:
*cinnamon scented pine cones
*mcdonalds hot chocolate
*warm pretzel bites from the prezeltmaker
*warm sweaters
*pajama pants to lounge in

Our lives recently according to my phone

So I have been totally slacking on the blog. Life has been a little crazy with work and school, so I just forget to blog. So this is what life has been like for the last month according to pictures on my phone.

our little summer vacation

ben and i went to illinois a couple of weeks ago to visit family and it was a lot of fun! we went to the dells (is that how it is spelled?) and had crazy fun at the water park and then spent the rest of the time hanging out with ben's family. i don't have a ton of pictures yet {most of them are on my waterproof disposable camera that I haven't developed yet because I suck} but I have a few on my phone {did I mention i am blogging from my phone? i feel so cool right now}

my cute mama and papa

my parents came to visit me one day at work when it was really slow so we decided to play around and take some pictures. they are so cute!

p.s. steve and diana you have been warned. i fully intend to take cute pictures of you guys when we come to visit you in new orleans. 

p.p.s. because i am always horrible about remembering these kinds of things, this is my early father's day message to my papa: FELIZ DIA DE LOS PAPIS! TE  QUIERO MUCHO!

i'm baaaaack....

okay, so i never really went anywhere. i just got kinda bored {and lazy} with blogging but i have been re-inspired so here we are.
i will recap benjamin's birthday because this is his blog too. {and he probably would be mad if i didn't : ) } we celebrated in true benjamin fashion. what does that mean? we went to the pet store and adopted a new kitty. ben really wanted her and i couldn't say no. i am a sucker for cute animals.  her name is kate and she is a tabico. she is about a year old and very shy but oh soo cute. sam loves having kate around. they sleep and play together all of the time.
i am married to a 27 year old!
sadly we couldn't make it to coachella fest this year {something about tickets being sold out hours after they went on sale. lame} but i am still going to pretend i am there by wearing summer clothes, cute sunnies and listening to good music, which may or may not include britney spears' new song 'til the world ends' ha!

i am not a good winker

my face gets all awkward and it ends up looking like i am squinting or something.
