You knew it was coming.

For all of you that know my sweet husband, you are fully aware of his great love for his red pumas. So, I know that you are not the least surprised that I have received my own pair of red pumas. It was just a matter of time. Mine are a little more girly and oh so comfy. I am officially John's wife now that I have red pumas!

True Love

Thanks Annika!

When we were up in Boston, Annika graciously shared some treasured family recipes with me and one of them was muesli. If you have never tried it, you are truly missing out. It is just a mix of oats, dried fruit, honey, and really whatever you feel like putting in it. It is great with milk, yogurt, or just by itself. I have always enjoyed to cook but I have started to realize what a ministry it can become. There is nothing more personal or intimate than sitting around a table with great friends, great conversation, and of course yummy food. There has been maybe one or two dinners that John and I put down the disposal but so far so good! So if you are ever in need of a hot meal, come on by!

Hope you week is truly blessed. Love from the Garrett's.

Lovely Boston.

New favorite place to go visit=Boston! We had such an amazing time hanging out in Boston with John's cousin Brian, his sweet wife Annika, and their precious bundle of joy Joseph. They took us on a great tour of Boston, went up to Maine to visit John's Uncle and his family, and spoiled us the whole time we were up there.

All of us! Notice Joseph's huge doughnut!
I love Boston houses. Right out of Anthropologie.
I think this picture captures how freezing it was up there. In the background is suppose to be downtown Boston. Makes me cold just looking at it!

Well that was Boston, if you ever are thinking of going it! We will probably go in the summertime next but winter is wonderful too! Have a blessed day!

Christmas: Part 2

I am in denial. I cannot believe that Christmas is already over. I loved that I could turn on my radio and find Christmas music on every station and look out the window and see those beautiful twinkling lights. But all good things have to come to an end. At least that is what they say. We went home to the Woodlands for Christmas and the weekend was filled with way too much food, wonderful family time, and some sneakiness. My parents and us have this running joke of these gingerbread man cards. They are just precious but the are impossible to play with because of their arms and legs. So they are absolutely worthless. We have been sending them back and forth to each other and we were finally ready to be done with these little pieces of inconvenience. So we took all of the 52 cards and hid them in different places around the house. Bahahaha. I don't think we will be seeing those bad boys for awhile.

Here's a little picky from Christmas eve. We have traditions that I have done since birth. We go out to eat on Christmas eve and then to the candlelight service. Then on Christmas morning we open presents, have a yummy breakfast, and then open stockings. The rest of the day is spent napping, games, and just spending precious time with family.
Happy 1st Christmas!

Handsome men
So, the depressing day came when we had to return to work but then enjoyed a wonderful three day weekend for New Years. And now it's off to Boston on Thursday! Whoohoo! We are visiting John's cousin, Brian, and his sweet wife and baby for 5 days. We have our long johns packed and ready to face the cold! Hope all is well and that you are truly blessed in 2010!
