Christmas Card

Monday, December 11, 2017

Happy Monday friends! This mama is feeling it after a long weekend at Disney World going non stop. I had such an amazing time with great friends and will recap soon.. but I'm wiped. Haha! Keeping today's post short and sweet. :) 

Without further ado, our Christmas card from Dixie Design
I am so amazingly pleased with how it turned out! I wanted something really classic this year, red and green, timeless. This card delivered. Love our photo by my friend Nicole and I love that I can already imagine next year's card with TWO babies. I'm kind of overwhelmed at how wonderful it is to receive and send cards each year and look at all the precious families. I wish we had known the gender of baby number 2 before sending so we could put little sister but that's okay! :) 

Can't wait to see all of your beautiful cards and a huge thank you to the amazing Kristin of Taz and Belly for cohosting with Sarah and I today! It's going to be another fun week of our linkup! XO

Christmas Gift Guides

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Y'all are quite possibly sick of reading gift recommendations online by now, but one last roundup for old times sake. While on the topic of gift guides... I know this is very anti-hustle-your-own-giftguides but my two favorite places to get recommendations are from my friend Emily's gift guides, and from Lee at Do Say Give. Emily's blog is wonderful in general, and Lee specifically talks about gifts and etiquette and has become one of my favorites. Two great sources for if you genuinely have some shopping you have to hustle out. I think mine have a ton of great options as well.. but I thought I would shout out the other two also. I feel like for every gift guide you can glean one or two ideas and then move about your merry way. 

First, the gift guides I've done so far...


I actually got a very hard to buy for family member these gloves. I figure they're one of those things that doesn't seem like a glamorous present but then they end up being so glad they have them and think of how amazing of a gifter you are. Or that's my hope. :)

Thank y'all again for continuing to link up with us! :) And to Erika for co hosting!

A Christmas Day in the Life

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Let's remix this prompt to a Christmas WEEKEND in the life.. haha! We packed in so much holiday fun this past weekend that I need to share it all! It was one of those weekends that went by in the blink of an eye. We weren't home at all really, but it was so full of sweet times! I'm going to need to take it easy after two busy weekends in a row.. last weekend and then this Thursday-Sunday I'll be in Orlando on a girls weekend to go to all the Christmas festivities at Disney World. I'm SO excited! Being away from Beau is never fun, but I can't wait to get him a special ornament and have some mama refuel time.

Friday night we had our Home Group Christmas Party. It was SO MUCH FUN! We ate at a place called Pinewood Grill and it was a really jolly, hustling and bustling environment. We had a long table and everyone ordered a ton of food and it just made it really fun. These people are such an extension of family to us and so it was really fun to celebrate another year together.
