weekend highlights

Our weekend was one for the books! Once again, it was nothing out of the ordinary, but it was the perfect amount of family time! I feel like we did a lot, but also had a lot of relaxing time! Can every weekend be like that?! Here are some highlights:

 We pulled out the Christmas tree over a week ago, sans ornaments, hoping the newness of the tree would wear off by the time I decorated it, so that Mia would leave the ornaments alone. Well, Friday evening I couldn't resist anymore and busted out the ornaments! This is the first time I've ever put a tree up before Thanksgiving and I have to admit, I don't hate it! This time of the year is even more magical with a little one!

Saturday we spent our day in sunny St George! I gave Mia another haircut (her 4th or 5th, can't remember?) and this is the first time her sides have been long enough for me to trim, YAY! This little diva is sporting the cutest little bob but couldn't be bothered for a photo, obvi!

My parents watched Mia so that Eric and I could go on a much needed (and totally overdue) date! It seemed like the universe was against us that day but we made it to the temple and of course, it was just what we needed! After, we enjoyed a gourmet dinner (this NEVER happens!) at the Cliffside Restaurant and I am just kicking myself for not taking any photos! The food was delish and soooo affordable (we were told that the prices will be going up now that the owners have determined the restaurant will be a success, so anyone who's wondering if they should try it, now's the time!) and there were the most gorgeous views of the mountains. Ah! We are dying to go back asap (and I promise I'll take pictures next time)! We ended our night with a very unsuccessful shopping trip (ah! is anyone else flustered with their Christmas gift list? Christmas is so close and I still have so much to do!) and ice cream.Although, watching Eric walk around Target in their adult superman onesie pajama thing was pretty entertaining ;) and the ice cream made up for the lack of success, of course!

Seriously though, can every weekend be like this one?!

Her hair is so cute! Adorable! Yay for Christmas decor! We decorated about a week and a half ago and it was so fun. We've always put up the tree before Thanksgiving because we're usually traveling. You're totally right holidays with littles are so much more fun!

Her hair is too cute! It is nice to enjoy the tree just a bit longer. I always put it up the day after thanksgiving, but I just have so much more fun with it up early with Aria. And, ice cream makes all things better!

Hall Around Texas said...

We put up our tree before Thanksgiving this year too! I told my hubby that I want to enjoy it for longer than just the month of December. It already flies by too fast. Love the picture of Mia in her sunnies! Precious! And yay for a date night!
