Christmas 2014

I can't believe the holiday season is over with. I love Christmas so much but I always feel like it doesn't last long enough.
Christmas was truly amazing again this year. Its so much fun with kiddos!!! I mean I had so many great memories from the holidays growing up but there's just something more amazing with your own kids. 
We spent Christmas Eve at my parents, then came home and got ready for Santa. 
Santa definitely came in the middle of the night and spoiled Miss O! 
She is one loved little girl. We had breakfast at my parents opened gifts then headed to the hubs parents for lunch and more presents. 
It was a very busy but amazing day! I can't wait til next year when there's two kiddos running around. We already know what Santa will probably be bringing. 
Here's some pictures to highlight our day! 

Hope you had a great Christmas! 
Now lets celebrate bringing in the New Year! 

December First Box

A few years ago before having Miss O I saw this really cute idea on Pinterest. 
I know, go figure an idea from Pinterest. 
Anyways, it was this little box filled with Christmas stuff, pjs and some hot coco. I knew I really wanted to do something like that when we have kids. The hubs and I decided instead of giving it to the kids on Christmas eve we would do it every year on December 1st so they could enjoy the pjs and other items included in their box. 
Last year was our first year with Miss O. I loved it so much I couldn't wait til this year. 

Here's what she got this year. 

Miss O with last years box.

I look forward to sharing this tradition every year with the kiddos. I still can't believe we will have another baby next year! I'm so excited and can't wait. I hope Miss O grows up to love this tradition with the years to come.

Exciting News

I still hope not everyone has completely given up on me. I needed a break from this little space. 
I didn't think it would be this big of a break but we've been pretty busy.

Also, if you follow me on Facebook you probably saw where this post was suppose to be live Monday. Well I got a bad case of the stomach flu... It was a rough. 
But I'm so excited to be back with some amazing post, new recipes and all things family and babies! 
So let's start off with the exciting news. 
If you follow me in Instagram then you probably already know but in case you don't here it is. 

Yes, that's right Miss O will be a big sister in May. We are super excited now that all the shock has wore off. 
Miss O and her sibling will be 22 months apart. At first I was pretty nervous about the short distant between the two but I'm starting to think it will be a great age difference! I hope they are bffs! 

We find out the sex in on the 29th. We can't wait! 
I'll post of pregnancy post soon too! 

(17 weeks) 

Well I hope you have a wondering Thursday.
I'll be back next week with a new cookie recipe and a peak into Miss O's December 1st box! 

P.S. I promise I'm back to blogging! :)

Friday Favorites

Hello Friday! 

I'm pretty excited its Friday. We have a football game tonight, then farmers market and shopping tomorrow then fall craft show at the park Sunday. I also need to fit in some miles sometime. I hoping to drag all my fall decorations out sometime Saturday. I'm pretty excited to decorate this year. I just love fall. 

But until I show you pictures of my decorations I'll leave you with my fall inspired Friday favorites. 

Favorite Fall Sign: Trick or Treat isn't this super cute!? I love this sign. I think its cuter than our average black and orange sign. Which is probably why I love it the most. 

Favorite Outfit. I think this would be super cute for the fall. I love the green and leopard mix. It looks super cute and comfy. 

Favorite Baked Good. Healthy and Delicious Pumpkin Bread. THIS LOOK AMAZING. I'm so ready for everything pumpkin this fall. I even have a few recipes for the blog to share. And I'm totally making this pumpkin bread. I know it will just be delish! 

Favorite Girls Outfit. I love this! Buying for a little girl really is super fun. I'm sure I'd love to buy for a boy too. I love love this outfit! Totally finding something like this for Miss O. 

Favorite Fall Porch. Halloween Decorating...The Porch This porch is sooooo cute! I'm thinking about doing something like this on our front porch that faces the road. Instead of going all out for the door way that faces the garden. Sure people see it when they come over but not when they are just driving by. I love this look so much! 

Favorite Sandwich: Slow Cooker Beef Brisket French Dip . Doesn't this look amazing! I love love love french dip. They are the prefect fall food. This recipe looks delish and super easy to make. Plus it would feed a lot of people. I can't wait to try this! 

Favorite DIY: Kitchen Island Inspired by Pottery Barn I love everything about this. I would probably already be making it with my mom is I had room for it. I think it would be super cute as a table and not just an island. I hope I can make it one day. Its super cute
