Y'all it's FRIDAY again. I feel like this week has FLOWN by! We have 3.5 more days of school then we are on Winter Break and we couldn't be happier! We are SO ready for a break!

Like most Friday's, I am sharing a few of our FAVORITES this week.


Surviving the Holidays

Last year my friend, Stephanie, looked at me and said "you are a bah humbug" this year and she was ABSOLUTELY right. #truthhurts. I overbooked myself, I didn't plan well, I couldn't say NO to anyone. I thought I could do it all and still enjoy the magic of the season and boy was I WRONG. I was just WAITING for Christmas to be over so I wouldn't be overstressed anymore. #wasitheonlyone

So this year, I promised myself that I would NOT repeat last year and so far, I have NOT! It has truly been a magical time so far.

I made sure to enjoy this holiday season and here are the 4 steps that I have followed to make sure I stay MERRY & BRIGHT this Christmas season.



Deck The Halls

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. I love everything about this time of year but I especially LOVE Christmas decorations. So today I am sharing how we "decked the halls" this year! 

I kept some of it the same as last year but I did change up some of it. I also went with "less is more" this year, as well. This is probably my FAVORITE post to write each year. 

Our Christmas Tree.

Monthly Goals + November Book Review

If you have been a long time reader then you know that I love monthly goals! I love to see what I can accomplish and I love to share them here because it helps keep me accountable!

The first part of this post is going to be all about goals while the second part will be what I read this month.

Happy Birthday to our Ian Michael

I can't believe we have a TEENAGER in the house. I swear it feels like he was just 2. We are SO proud of the young man he is becoming. We celebrated this weekend with 8 of his buddies at our house. Then ended the weekend with dinner with my family. Tonight we are going to a local restaurant for .50 cent wings. Perfect for a growing boy.
