a few of my favorite things

last night after a nice dinner out to celebrate our big news, we went to anonymous university employer's chapel festival of nine lessons and carols.  church christmas services are in my top-three favorite things about christmas.  i went to my parents' church service last sunday and per usual, i was moved to tears.  they have a full orchestra play and the choir is singing and the sanctuary always looks so beautiful and i just get lost in all of the emotions of the season and before you know it, i'm a blubbering mess.  it doesn't really feel like christmas to me until i'm in a church with candles and readings and all the familiar christmas hymns.

what all are you lovelies up to this weekend?  we're going to aggressively finish unpacking/arranging the house, headed to the annual christmas party thrown by some of our friends in town {it is ALWAYS an affair to remember. and i'm making these glorious-looking treats.}, and then i'm spending sunday at home with my parents while the beau works.  which means christmas baking and decorating with my mama and wedding budget discussions {i.e the unfun part!} and maybe a little snow!

hope it's fabulous!

I totally agree about church and how cool that we have similar trees and Christmas decorating styles :)
