The best Christmas movies to watch this Christmas season.
Tis the season to watch all the Christmas movies. But seriously, am I the only one who is making all kinds of new traditions this year? With Hazel starting to understand what is going on I've been trying really hard to get in the spirit of each Holiday and find ways to explain everything to her.  The true meaning and all that kind of good stuff.

01. It's a Wonderful Life
02. A Charlie Brown Christmas
03. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (fet. Jim Carrey)
04. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

a condensed version of my weekend

Sometimes I like to take to the Internet and dump/share/brag about my weekend and my life. This time around is far overdue. 

Just over a week ago Brand returned home from a service trip to Tonga-dental service that is. He had a ton fun and hasn't stopped talking about it since, and I don't blame him. That week Hazel a I kept ourselves as busy as we could, we played, ran errands, visited the children's museum, and spent a lot of time outside, because if there is one thing that will make Hazel happy it's being outside.  Brand's homecoming was nothing short of sweet. Watching Hazel run up to him, as he walked out of the terminal exit, squealing on her way over, was probably one of the sweetest things I had seen all week. 

Last week Brand had off-Thanksgiving break. And so we hung out with him most of the time. Again, we spent our time trying to keep our days filled because we have an oh-so-very-active Hazel-or so we've been told. We played at the park, went on our weekly Target trip to look at the toys, I'm not the only one who does that am I? We made treats for cousins, watched movies, and spent some time at a few parks. Hazel loves to people watch as you can see below, she's very sneakily watching the little boy go down the slide.

the coolest holiday gift for him

This post was sponsored by JORD wood watches but all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

It's the holiday season, it's the holiday season, and Santa Clause is coming round... Yesterday one of the stations in Phoenix started their Christmas music and I don't know if I am happy about it or mad about it. I mean, I can't really be mad about Christmas music, right?! That should be illegal, shouldn't it? It's the happiest music I've ever heard, it gets us all in the holiday spirit and, I don't know, it just gives me all the good feelings. Ya know!? 

I guess with the start of Christmas music we know that Christmas Day is just around the corner which means it's time to prepare. Time to get out and find the perfect gift for your special someone, something they will ooo-and-awe over, something fantastic! But, I have to say shopping for Brand can be difficult. I never know what he wants and whenever I ask him what he wants he always says something like oh I don't need anything, or that's okay you don't have to get me anything.  And then I throw my hands up in the air in the most dramatic fashion thinking oh great now I have to just come up with something? Sometimes man. Sometimes.

But this time around I'm not worried.  A few weeks ago I was introduced to JORD Wood Watches and I was completely in awe of these modern, unique watches. I love their sleek timeless look which makes them perfect to wear for every occasion.  This watch is also the perfect gift for any celebration, it makes a great Christmas gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift, and graduation present, that's what's nice about giving watches I guess, they are perfect for everything! 

Brand already opened his gift- our 8th anniversary is Monday and I just had to show it to him-this is the watch I got him, and he absolutely loves it.  He couldn't wait to get it out of the box, and he even wore it to church that same morning-and he got a ton of complements might I add.
