What's Up Wednesday | November 2018

Holy Crap...Where has this year gone?? I can't believe Christmas is in 28 days and I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet. #dontpanic #imnot #iwillgetitdone

Since it's the last Wednesday of the month I am joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday to answer the following questions...

Oh Ship, It's a President's Trip | Days 1-4

Happy Tuesday Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start. It's rough getting back into the swing of things after a holiday! But hey, we only have 3 more weeks until we are out for 2.5 weeks. YIPEE!

I mentioned before and you might have followed along on IG. while Ben and I were away for an 8 day/7 night cruise for his President's Trip for work. It's a trip that he earns every year and I am so proud of him for it.

Today I am finally getting around to recapping Days 1-4 of our trip.

Hello Monday | Let us Give Thanks

Happy Monday Friends! I hope y'all had a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you were able to spend lots of time with family and friends.

I ended up taking an unexcepted blog break last week so I am recapping out Thanksgiving Break today! I hope you will grab our graphic and join us!

Thankful, Grateful, & Blessed

Happy Tuesday Friends!

I just wanted to let you all know how Thankful I am for each and every one of you that reads and comments on this little space of mine!!

I have decided to take the rest of the week off from blogging. My sister came into town yesterday so we had a sleepover and had the best time just laughing and catching up with each other.
We have another fun day planned for today!

Then I will spend the rest of the week with family and getting ready to host Thanksgiving this weekend with my family. I am so Grateful for these people in my life.

In between all the family festivities, I will be working on orders. I am so Blessed by my customers who continue to purchase from my little shop. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!

I hope you all have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

PS. Something is wrong with my google account and it is not letting me comment on blogs that use Google for commenting. Please know that I am reading, I just can't comment. I am trying to get that fixed.

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?

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...

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!
