Mike and I had a phenominal time staying out at the coast for the weekend! We set goals to spend a percentage of our wedding money (yes, I married an economist) but found that we were having so much fun just walking and talking we didn't get any money spent while on the town! So we had to spend a whole dinner discussing how to drop at least a hundred and finally decided on buying a fancy Christmas tree skirt and some books! Thus our Christmas tree hunt upon returning to Portland. You can't have a nice Christmas tree skirt and no tree. And the tree looks so gorgeous in our little apartment, which we have loved setting up and combining all of our stuff! Being married is so much fun!
