    Hi, friends! I hope you had a nice weekend! Mine was fabulous, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. But, first, let me show you what’s been happening with the decorating in our living room since I never showed you guys what our new coffee table and decorative pillows looked like after […]



    Good morning! Check out this year’s Christmas tree! Yay! I love the holidays! Decorating our Christmas tree was a lot of fun. We listened to holiday music, drank eggnog, and ate a million red and green M&Ms. Seriously. A million. And, of course, we reminisced about ornaments.

    December 24, 2012


    Christmas is tomorrow, which means our 24 Days of Togetherness is over. How sad. I can’t believe how quickly it flew by, but having a fun, little Christmas activity to do each day made the time even more special. I’d say our first 24 Days of Togetherness was a success! I did a pretty good […]
