That awkward time between Christmas and New Year.

My Christmas was very low-key this year which is exactly what I wanted. I ate way too much good food and sat around watching cheesy movies. Bliss.

Now that Christmas is over, I can focus on my upcoming trip to Disney World. While there, we're not just sight-seeing and character stalking, the bf is running a marathon while I'm running my first 5k (brand new running shoes were under the tree waiting for me-yay) so naturally, I'm concerned with what I'll wear whilst running (shallow, I know). I'm thinking of representing with my favorite vampire. What do you think?

Christmas Pictures

So do you guys make Christmas cards? I've never in my life sent out a Christmas card so the bf and I decided to make one because his family is in Michigan and he doesn't get to see them too often. A nice way to send them our love.

Now, I know why I've never done a Christmas card before--it is a nightmare. Taking the pictures was a project in itself since we had to use a self-timer. Of course we're not big picture people-I prefer being behind the camera-and so we felt so awkward posing. Of course I'm no photographer so the editing process was the blind leading the blind. Off to Walgreens to print them because of my meager waitress salary. Walgreens prints come out so saturated--they looked hideous so off to edit them once again and make them as washed out as possible so they'd come out halfway decent. So, I finally decided to just print out a few since the quality was so terrible and they're being sent to family members who don't really notice things like terrible photo quality and awkward posing (ie., his grandma)
This is the final product. What do you think?

A year older...

Year 25 of my life started off as a rocky, unstable confusing one. However, it did a complete 180 and I couldn't be happier. Here's hoping that year 26 keeps the momentum going.

Beards are boss...

These pictures have pretty much made the entire "geek" blog rounds but I don't care, I love them! Vanja Mrgan is a Croatian illustrator who has re-imagined some of our favorite crime-fighting bad-asses...with beards! His series is called "Bearded" and is still growing. I can't wait to see more!
