Wathen Sisters

Yesterday we went out just before sunset and squeezed out some potential Christmas card photos with these two. Kari (senior) and Lorin (sophomore) were fabulous. Lorin is in my small group at church, which i Love.

day date :)

Ok, so I have wanted to go to Watson's in the Orange circle forever! Somehow never made it BUT Maggie had equal interest so we seized the oppurtunity and drove on over. The Orange circle is so cute! And it was a perfect crisp fall day and it felt like we we're somewhere else, far away. Anyway, Watson's was fabulous - co cute and decorated for Christmas! :)

Then, we found this cute little place called The Ugly Mug and we're so down with anything non starbucks and different. It was full of couches, has open mike nite and this:

Plus they served Diedrichs (rip) coffee so bonus points!

I'll be back there soon!

Finished the evening with some more eating but it was great to hang with Tiff!

spread the holiday cheer.

I didn't get a chnace to take a picture yet, but I just drove past Birch St. and the trees are wrapped alternating with red and white lights!

It was beuatiful.

Out loud, alone in my car I said, "Shut up" multiple times out of shock and joy.

So excited.

And the brea Mall has begun some decorating :)

thanks to maggz:

So much more to come.

This pic reminds me of our annual picture with the soldier nut cracker guy who we visit every year when we get 7eleven coffee and look at christmas lights! Woo!
