5 December Favorites

I've been trying to catch up on reading blogs -- it's almost impossible! I've missed a lot.
I've been doing lots of reading, not a lot of commenting. Once I'm caught up, that will be easier :)
I wanted to fill y'all in on 5 fun things I've done so far in December!
But first, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
1. 22nd Birthday
For my 22nd birthday, I had...lots of studying to do. BOO! But, I did get to start my day in kindergarten! My sweet teacher and students had a card, balloons and gift waiting for me! They are seriously too good to me.  I am so lucky to be with the best kindergarteners in the world :)

After class it was time for our family dinner! Here's what I wore:
 Lilly Joycee tunic, giant teardrop necklace from Groopdealz!

We went to dinner at a local restaurant, 622 North. Yum, yum, yum.
2. Army v Navy Football Game
Steven's family invited me to tag along for football game between Army and Navy.  One of Steven's brothers is at the Naval Academy and we went to last year's game, too.

3. Hokie Basketball
I'm somewhat embarrassed to say it, but I hardly ever go to basketball games.  Of all the sports to watch, basketball probably isn't in my top 8.  However, once finals were said and done with, we headed to one of the weekend games vs Georgia Southern! Although the Hokies lost, I still had fun and I have high hopes for the team this season!
4. Picking out our Christmas tree
 We went to a family farm down in McCoy

 And, I had to help ;)

Taking our tree home!

5. Playing with my crazy, and most of the time sleeping, pets

 Belle's 1st Christmas!

 Worn out from opening presents.

Seriously - they have slept all day! Oh, the life of a dog...

My December has been full of many blessings!
Not to mention Christmas day, which was simply wonderful. Another post on that tomorrow, maybe!

Today is my Mom's birthday! We're going to see Silver Linings Playbook and then having dinner in Roanoke. I'm excited! Anyone seen that movie?
Steven and his family are also heading home today. We still have to finish our gift exchange!
Lots of fun :)

Have a wonderful day!
