...bff L in the passenger seat...
...views and waves and the sunset...

this is why you live in california.

temple lights.

Earlier this month Chad and I attended a Christmas concert at the DC temple and strolled around the winter wonderland there. Seeing the lights at the temple in LA was always one of my favorite Christmas activities as a kid--I was slightly distraught that I missed the LA lighting ceremony this year, but seeing the beautiful 500,000+ lights in DC with Chad more than made up for it...this year.

oh christmas tree!

3' tall {turquoise! tinsel!} christmas tree.
glittery snowflakes.
sparkling cider, pie, and cookies.
gifts and love.
mariah and elvis and ella and karen carpenter.
girlfriends. boyfriends. roommates. family.

i take my punishments like a champ.

A few weeks ago one of my favorite boys came into town for a whirlwind 24 hour visit, and we visited The National Museum of Crime & Punishment. This is officially the coolest museum ever and definitely my new favorite (non-art) museum--I highly recommend, if you've never been. Mikey and I put each other in the stocks as punishment for the various crimes we've committed together, but only one of us kept our cool.

roomies in december.

merry christmas from the girls of apt #1131!
love, milan, michelle, domineau, and corinne

p.s. corinne's faces are priceless.

this song on repeat.

Part pop, motown, and rock, I've literally been groovin' in my seat to it all morning.
Dance with me!

:: Artist: The Noisettes ::
:: Track: Never Forget You ::

"Don't you know that you're my joy?"

thanksgiving is...

my martha stewart table-setting attempts with candles, antique goblets, and foliage.

pumpkin pie that I try and fail to enjoy every year...too mushy! maybe next year?

marble fireplaces and crackling fires.

sisters, Brits, and cheers!
football in the hills.
impromptu sister photo shoots.

family and friends.
