Never-Ending Thank You's

Sorry it's been a little while since we've written. We've been somewhat busy with Christmas things, and a lot busy with finishing up our thank you notes from our wedding. Yep, the oh-so-dreaded thank you notes. I'm a little ashamed to say that we haven't finished sending them all yet and it's been 3 and a half months since the wedding (thank goodness for the 1 yr grace period!), but let's be honest here, we had well over TWO HUNDRED thank you notes to write, so it was bound to take a little time...

We are extremely thankful for those gifts, and more importantly for the people who gave them, but it is no easy task to write that many notes. I am extremely happy to say that we should have the last ones finished tomorrow!!! My goal has been to be completely done by Christmas and we are going to make it!

So let's move on!

This past weekend Stephen and I went on a little getaway to Pasadena. We got a fantastic deal on a hotel room from Priceline.com and decided we would go away for the weekend, relax, and finish up some Christmas shopping. It was so great. We caught a movie, walked around the street-front stores in Pasadena, ate a great dinner at Cheesecake Factory, and overall had a fantastic time just being together. We've decided that we need to do this about every 6 months, and next time we're going to San Francisco (assuming we can afford it!).

While we were walking around Pasadena we walked right by this little beauty parked on the street:
It's a 1955 Chevy Corvette and it looked incredible! Needless to say Stephen stopped and stared for a while and then made me get out my camera so he could take a picture of it :-)

It was a great weekend and now we're gearing up for our trip to Alabama in just a few days! Hooray! Hope you guys are enjoying this time of the year. Don't get stressed about the gifts...that's not what it's really about anyway.
