Weekend Festivities

What a fun filled weekend it has been! I hate when good weekends like this come to an end. 

Saturday we got up bright and early for the Holiday 8k Run on post. We had a blast! It was pretty cold but it was worth it. Our costumes were a huge hit and we actually had people in cars stopping to tell us how much they loved our costumes. :) Making people smile is the best.


We opted out of doing the Polar Bear Plunge because there wasn't a whole lot of information about it (from what I heard it wasn't much fun either). We ended up doing a little shopping and having lunch at Olive Garden. Yum!

Saturday night we headed to downtown El Paso for the Christmas Tree Lighting, it was gorgeous! Not only was there a tree but they had a ton of other decorations as well, including a tree on the side of the Wells Fargo building. We had a blast.


Sunday was spent mostly relaxing which we needed. Later in the day we got to get dressed up for the Commander's Reception at the Brigade Commanders house. I never pass up a chance to get all fancy haha. We couldn't pass up a chance to take a picture in front of our Christmas tree. :)

 It was great seeing all of Kyle's co-workers, never a dull moment with that bunch.


 I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

  2. The El Paso tree lighting looks so nice. We had a schedule conflict this year so we couldn't make it to the National tree lighting. Maybe next year...
