The goings on...

So I know I've been MIA for a week or so, so I'm going to try and catch you up with what's been going on in my life really quick. {I've been a bad photographer :( this season. I have a great camera, just need to use it more!}

First was my sisters graduation. I intended on getting a photo of all the nurses in our family, but I forgot. I will one day. 
So proud of ya little sis.

Then, there was the engagement of my friends Rebecca and Jason! I am so honored to be apart of their big day next October!

And we celebrated all night!

Then there was Christmas...
{see, the only pic I has more}

This is my Christmas card holder.
Just a bow with ribbon hanging down and hot glued clothes pins. Simple and easy to make! I love this time of year when REAL MAIL comes and pretty cards are in the mailbox! I look forward to it every year!

 This is peppermint ice cream pie with hot fudge. DE-LISH. One of our traditions is going to a family friends on Christmas Eve for dinner and gifts. This is the dessert she makes.

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and Santa was great to you all! He was more than generous to me!

I did make it to the after Xmas sales for a new Xmas tree! If you recall, mine is a recycled tree of my parents and leans about 30 degrees. Literally, with a slight blow, the thing might fall over! 
And it has a branch missing {that side goes in the back}.

So, needless to say, it's going to the curb!

Mom and I hit up Garden Ridge and I snagged a 7.5 ft on sale for $75 and a 6ft for $30! The 6ft is going to be my fun, sassy tree next year! I got lots of pink and frilly stuff too!

Now on to New Years Eve plans and resolutions...


  1. Love your Christmas outfit! Nice card holder, I've seen the wreath done with the clips. This looks like an easier DIY!

  2. love the card holder and the picture of you and your sis! Love your scarf :)


  3. Love your card holder and your Christmas outfit! I'm the same way, didn't take any Christmas pictures :( I used to be snap happy so I don't know what my problem is anymore. Yay for racking up Christmas goodies at Garden Ridge!!!
