When It Rains It Pours!

By Melanie

Friday evening after shopping for Christmas presents, my car broke down! I had to have it towed all the way home. We're in the process of getting it fixed. Ugh! I hate car problems.


Luckily my Honda CRV has been pretty good throughout the years. But it's still not fun dealing with car issues! It almost makes me want to get a new car but it's just so nice not having a payment now.

So after all the car problems, I enjoyed the rest of the weekend. It was nice staying in and listening to the rain Saturday night. I totally got into the holiday spirit and played some Christmas music and designed my Christmas card! I should get it back from the printers on Tuesday and I can't wait to mail them out.

I used one of the engagement photos that Brian and I toke awhile back (here) and turned it into our Christmas card.

I wanted it to have a California feeling so that's why I didn't use traditional Holiday colors. I think it turned out cute! Do you like it?
How was your weekend?
side note: Did you see the shocking DEXTER season finale? Whoa! That was intense!
