Holiday lights

It's no surprise to anyone who knows me how much I love the holiday season. I love picking out the perfect gift for others, decorating my apartment, drinking hot cocoa, and looking at lights. I love it. So I was so happy when my friend invited Keith and I out to the zoo to see lights! I couldn't wait.

Earlier in the day, Keith and I exchanged Christmas presents, which I will share at a later date, but he got me a new camera. I was so excited to take the camera out for a playdate at the zoo! So I snapped a few photos, and had a blast with friends.

Leaving the zoo, we ran across my favorite historical figure: Ulysses S. Grant. So I took a photo.

I hope everyone is having a great Holiday season!

Buying from small business for Keith

This is Keith. He is my boyfriend of 3.75 years. I try to pick out really thoughtful christmas gifts for him, but sometimes its hard because he's such a boy. He wants nerf guns, videogames, and various other zombie trinkets. He also likes science, and especially astronomy.

Anyway, I always have a hard time buying him handmade gifts. But I like to buy everyone on my list at least one handmade gift. He doesn't really need things like cufflinks, or bowties, or anything like that, so usually he gets soap, or lotion, or flavored chapstick. But I was reading in Craft magazine on my google reader, and they posted a link to this page. It was CUTE stuffed planets!!! I knew Keith needed one.

So I ordered it! then, I couldn't wait and gave it to him a little early. Although he still has a large stack under the tree...
Look at how cute!!! I got him the Moon. (although I just showed him the site, and he squealed about the sun) Anyway, I highly recommend these little guys. The ship quickly, they are really well priced for the quality product!
