Month: January 2017


Posted on Updated on

Happy New Year!! “We’re gonna party like it’s 1999.” [Ha, got you singing that didn’t I?] It is 2017. 2017, ya’ll! I seriously, just can’t wrap my head around it. I’m sure this year will fly by just like the previous ones, and many fun memories will be made.

But, just for fun… It’s been:

27 years since I was born.

10 years since I graduated high school.

6 years since I met my husband. [but not married of course]

3 years since my son was born.

2 years since I have been at my current job.

What the what?? Seriously, where does the time go?

Anyway, enough of the history lesson. The last couple of weeks off from work have been fabulous. It’s hard to think about me having to go back to work tomorrow. YIKES! My family and I have done so many things over this winter break, I don’t even know where to begin. The bathroom that I mentioned back in December, well, it’s still a work in progress, but if you have been following me on my Instagram, you might have seen some progress updates. I am hoping by the end of this month it will be finished. *fingers crossed* Christmas with the family was fun as always; laughs, drinks, games, food, the usual. My most ABSOLUTE favorite gift was from my sister in law, I asked her to make it, but seriously wasn’t expecting it for Christmas because it was like 4 days before that I had asked her [more like told] to make it.


Now, if only I can decide exactly where I want this beautiful piece to go in my house!

Last night we went to a friend’s house for a New Years Eve party [& had a blast by the way]. Don’t worry guys, it was kid friendly & had Rhett with us so we didn’t have too much fun! Of course I had to bring in the New Year in style; so I tried something new with my hair & LOVED IT! Don’t think I’ll ever be able to replicate it but I dang sure will try! Rocked my Christmas present to myself around my neck; Salt & Light Gems on Etsy has the absolute most adorable handmade necklaces/chokers! Go check her out! [I’ll post more of my purchase at a later date]
