A Saturday Hike up Madonna Mountain

What's a better way to start 2010 than a nice Saturday hike on a 70 degree winter day in SLO!
We made the trek up the hill with Andrew's parents and the pups. Andrew failed to take my advice to wear some shorts when I said that it was going to be pretty warm. After making it about half way up, he was wishing he didn't wear jeans and a sweatshirt!
Afterward we had a great lunch at Lincoln Deli. What a beautiful day!

Ok, so... I'm not so good with the blog updating!

Our first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. has come and gone. Wishing I had some super exciting news to report from our holiday, but it was actually the most mellow Christmas holiday I've had in a really long time. Andrew and I celebrated Christmas eve by opening one gift each, while we sipped on some awesome chocolate martinis. Andrew makes the BEST chocolate martinis!

Everyone was pretty spread out this Christmas, including my parents who were in AZ spending Christmas with my step brother and his family. Andrew's brother spent the holiday with his wife, Kimber and her family. Andrew and I had his parents over at our house Christmas morning exchanged ours gifts on Christmas morning and then we headed to the Madonna Inn to share a wonderful early Christmas dinner with Andrew's parents, his grandparents and his aunt and uncle. If you've never been to the Madonna Inn during the Christmas holiday, it's definitely a site to see!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Christmas Time Around Our House

We don't waste any time when it comes to putting up our Christmas tree! Going on three years now we've headed out on the day after Thanksgiving to find our perfect tree. This year our tree came from Home Depot where they seemed to have the best deals. Our tree sits about 7 feet tall, which is pretty darn big for our little house! In fact, it's so big that when Andrew sits on his chair, and I sit on the couch, we can't even see each other! Here's our tree, and some of the holiday decor around the house. :)

My name is Sara... and I'm a Starbucks addict

My most recent favorite drink:

Caramel Apple Spice. This drink is pure deliciousness!! It's seriously THAT good!

I recommend you give it a try. If you don't like super sweet, have them make it without the caramel. Yummmo! I don't even want to know how many calories are in this amazing little drink!

We have a blog!

Hello all! Seems as though everyone has a blog these days, so we've joined the bandwagon too! There really is no theme... so we'll see how it goes. I guess this is a good start!

Since it's that time of year... here is our Christmas card. I was so excited to have a picture from our wedding on our Christmas card this year!!
Merry Christmas to all of our friends and family and welcome to our blog! :)
