Friday Favorites | Cancer Sucks Edition

Oh, Friday, How I am so happy to see you! This week has been spent just trying to play catch up from being gone last week along with just a normal week. I'm exhausted! HA #momlife

I'm sharing a few of our FAVORITES from this week. It's been cold and wet here this week so I have consumed more coffee than any one person should drink in a week! HA

Have your ordered your Christmas card yet?

* This post is sponsored by Basic Invite but all opinions are my own. 

I mentioned on our Fall Bucket List that I wanted to get our family photos made for our Christmas card this year. Well, these photos may just be my FAVORITE to date.


Late October, we met my sweet friend, Katie, at the golf course to have our photos taken. She has taken our photos for a few years now and I just love how she captures my family.

Without further ado here are our 2018 family photos...






A few of Ian and Ella...







I can't believe how much they have grown in a YEAR. 

I love how the ones of Ben and I in the vineyards turned out...



So what do you think? I am in love with them. 

It's going to be a tough decision to decide which picture to pick for our Christmas card this year. Luckily, Basic Invite has made it so easy to pick and choose the PERFECT card for my photos with their unlimited color options and instant previews online. 
Did you know that Basic Invite also offers 40 different colors of envelopes with peel and seal? Because no one wants to lick those disgusting envelope flaps. 

BUT the best part about Basic Invite is that they offer an address capturing service. You can send a link on social media requesting your friends and family's address and it will SAVE it your account which can then be selected during the design process. How freaking awesome is that feature?? and to seal the deal Basic Invite offers recipient address printing for FREE on all Christmas Card orders. 

Just look at some of the BEAUTIFUL DESIGNS that Basic Invite has to offer...

Linking up with Lindsay and others for Welcome Wednesday


Thankful Jar

Happy Tuesday Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! I'm trying to play catch up from being gone for a week! I had a very productive day yesterday so I feel much better starting off this week!!

I wanted to start a new tradition this year. I wanted to start a Thankful Jar with the hopes that family as well as friends when they stop by to write something they are thankful for at that moment. I think it will be so fun to look over these at the end of each day, week, or even the end of the month.

Here is how I set up our jar...

Hello Monday | Cookie Exchange

Hello Monday and Hello Reality..... We got home late last night from our amazing 7-night cruise. I can't wait to share our trip with you guys!! But today, you will find me unpacking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and washing 9,000 loads of laundry. 

 I hope you will grab our holiday graphic and join us for Hello Monday!! 

Hello Monday | November 2018 Goals

Hello Monday! If you need me today you can find me on the beautiful island of St. Kitts. We sailed away late last night on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Sea ship. We will return Sunday evening. With that being said, this will be my only post for the week so I can spend all my time with my sweet hubby who worked so hard to earn us this trip!

I hope you will grab our graphic and join us for Hello Monday! 

Friday Favorites | Thank You's, Halloween, Glitter

Happy Friday Friends. Man, this week has KICKED my butt! I felt like a chicken with my head cut off. I was going 90 to nothing and feeling like I got nothing accomplished all at the same time.

But on a happier note, I am going to share a few of our FAVORITES from this week!
