argent |ˈärjənt|adjective poetic/literary & Heraldrysilver; silvery white the argent moon.noun Heraldrysilver as a heraldic tincture.

Almost done with the Christmas tree. I'll try to take a picture of it and post it over the weekend. I'm bad at uploading pictures so don't hate me if I don't get around to it until January. Just managing expectations here.

I forgot to tell you that the Clementine Spice Cake was very good. It is a delicious cake. I'm not even that huge of a cake fan - I'm an icing girl. I don't like dry things. I need some wetness in all of my dishes, even dessert. So back to the point - it's not necessarily my cake of choice because there was too much cake and not enough icing. BUT I would definitely recommend it for a holiday treat because it is different and also a great way to use up clementines (which always seems to pile up during the holidays).

I can't wait to give presents this year. I actually spent time thinking about each person and what they would truly enjoy and I think all of my recipients are going to be thrilled! *fingers crossed* I always get nervous when I give gifts.

antechapel |ˈantēˌ ch apəl|nouna vestibule for a college chapel, lying beyond the west end of the nave.

I am so excited about Christmas this year! Today is more Christmas shopping, specifically for things that I am going to use to make presents out of. Yes, I am in the project mood this year. 

And we're buying a little tree for our apartment tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's been like 100 years since I've had a real Christmas tree. My mom got on the fake tree kick and then she turned into a bah humbug after us kids left and only puts up a Christmas tree cross. Which is still pretty cool since the main reason of Christmas is CHRIST. But, the point is, I am so excited for a real tree!

This is what I want to do with my man right now. Lay in bed all wrapped up in each other. Warm. I hate winter. The Life and Times of Sticks and Bricks

Sorry for the pyscho layout. I hate the new blogspot posting thing. I'm going back to the old school way.
