Watching a lot of things. This season of How I Met Your Mother is awesome and I'm still totally into The Mindy Project. Ben is too, which is hilarious because he was so against it at the beginning. We're also catching up on this season of The Office and watching Christmas movies when we can. The cold weather is so perfect for cuddling up on the couch.

Thinking about my future career. Grad school is more work this month and I only get one week off for Christmas, but it's rewarding to know that this is something that will help our future. I'm going to a big job conference in February and am oddly intimidated by that, but I'm excited too. Taking risks is exciting.

Listening to nothing new, really. I'm content with my James Taylor Christmas cd and the few random Christmas records we've found at thrift stores, but if anyone has some new music suggestions for after the holidays, I'd love to hear them.

Excited about my week off! I have a paper due Sunday night, but then there will be nothing to do again until the week of New Years. I'm excited for all of our Christmas plans and celebrating our first one as married people, for seeing my brother-in-law & sister-in-law, and for just relaxing the rest of the week. Also, I'm excited to give the gifts that we bought! I lovelovelove giving gifts, so I hope everyone likes theirs!

Reading The Book Thief by Mark Zusak. It's beautifully written and so captivating. I haven't had much time to read lately, but I'm hoping to finish it up during my time off.

Loving all of these new traditions that Ben and I are making. I love that kid so much and building our life together is so much fun.

Looking forward to our wedding video! The videographer texted me today that it should come in the mail any day now and I'm giddy just thinking about it. I CANNOT wait to see it. And of course, I'll share it here as soon as I get the chance.

 Remember that I'm @wildchild_jack on Twitter and Instagram if you miss me on here or whatever. I probably won't be back on here before Christmas, so Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you have a wonderful holiday with the people you love.

And thanks to my sweet friend Megan for the idea for these posts.

I keep saying I want to string up our Christmas cards like that, and I keep not doing it. :) It looks so homey!

Jackie, I definitely get what you mean about all that grad school work! But, I totally believe it will be worth it (for both of us!)
