on our 2nd date of christmas...

We celebrated my birthday, good ole' December 17th! My favorite part is always midnight, when my husband is the first to shower me with birthday love. This year I was so tired I wasn't aware of the time and he surprised me with a HUGE  birthday balloon, pretty roses (my favorite), and a red velvet candle lit cake. He is precious.

A much needed haircut/hydrating hair therapy was welcomed, merry carolers greeted passerby's with their cheery melodies on main street in Ventura, a family dinner outing was enjoyed & bazooki's, courtesy of my sister (the best bazooka baker) were devoured. 

I really love this time of the year, and that I get to celebrate another year of life in this festive season.


on our 1st date of christmas...

My boy & I went for an evening walk at zuma beach in Malibu.
Fresh ocean air & a pretty sunset was welcomed.
And climbing mini sand hills made me very happy!


Then our all-time favorite fish-n-chips shack, Malibu Seafood, filled our tummies.
Food always tastes that much more delicious when surrounded by colorful christmas lights and a beautiful view of the sunset ocean.



12 dates of christmas.

I felt that what better way to celebrate this lovely time of the year
 than with 12 little dates with my husband?

So I joined in on marci's  12 dates of christmas idea, which her friend naomi spread the word on.

Join in! And if you do, send me a link :)
