Completed Home Projects of 2010......

I really can't believe this year is almost over! With 2011 around the corner, I wanted to take a quick moment to remember the progress we made around the house. When we first moved in I thought I can have this home just the way I want it in no time, now three years later  it is almost complete, and I just love the way it has turned out! It has been so much fun to look back a the before and after photos, what a huge difference!
Got to give credit where credit is due Emily I could not have done it without you!

Happy Hump Day!!!




I am not quite sure what my obsession is for all white? Could it be because it's soothing, peaceful, and gorgeous no matter what? Yep I thought so! Do you of you gals love white as much as I do?


PS Mama is getting a NEW computer today, and I could not be more excited!!!

A Beautiful White Christmas

What a wonderful, beautiful, and fabulous Christmas it was! This year was so much fun, Todd and I were really able to relax and soak up watching our baby boy enjoy the magic of Christmas! We left on Thursday to go home, and when we got into town we dropped little man off and went to have a drink with our friends back home. It was so nice to see everyone, how I miss these ladies very much, so it makes it that much more special when I get to see them.








 Christmas Eve at my parents, where all the babies decided after presents to tackle uncle Dane :) I just love watching these three together!
 Carson and I getting ready to go to my grandmothers to open more presents!
 I just love this picture, we are at my grandmothers in the country, brings back so may childhood memories.
 Family picture, excuse the big goofy smile on my face, something must have been funny!
 Papa and Carson snuggling after a long day. This picture melts my heart!
 Christmas morning, heading to Todd's parents.
 So excited about his new ball!
 The beautiful animals in the snow on the farm!!! This was unbelievably gorgeous to wake up to this morning, my pictures do my in laws farm no justice!
 Another family picture, and yes I am in my pj's didn't get up until 10:30 nor had I brushed my hair or teeth....just keeping it real for you :)
 Another view of the beautiful, huge, snow filled farm. You see that little cabin, yes that is where the hubs and I usually stay while Mimi and Papa keep the little one. It is just a few hundred yards from their house so we take the golf cart, turn on the fire and have us a nice romantic evening all alone in the country. But last night after we got down there and unpacked, I saw a freaking dead mouse under the bed! I freaked and told Todd I couldn't do it, I could not get in the bed, because I would be thinking mice were on me all night ha! So back to the in laws we went!
 Oreo the goat, and yes they really name their goats, and his name is really Oreo :) I love that they have names, so funny. Carson just loved seeing the goats and donkeys in the snow, he couldn't get enough of it.
 Isn't it just beautiful on the farm!


Hope you guys had a very Merry Christmas, I know we did! I just cant believe it's over!

Merry Christmas!!!!

Wishing you and your beautiful family a very Merry Christmas!!!

I am off for a well needed four days loving on my family! No work for the hubs, no computer for mommy, just lots of snuggling, laughs, and Christmas movies to be watched! I will miss you bloggy family!!!

Invitation and the Menu

Invitations were created by the fabulous Krysta!!! She was such a pleasure to work with and created just what I wanted!
I know that Christmas is in two days, and don't get me wrong I am beyond excited for 4 days with my family!! But I just received the proof and the tags for the invitations and menu so I had to share! Can you tell I am excited about my baby turning two!!!

PS I know the menu looks a little more adult friendly, but the kids usually go for the PB&J, Fruit, and most importantly the Cake!!! So I figure us adults may as well enjoy the food :)

Tis the Season..........

For getting fancied up, drinking a little too much, and busting out those moves you have been saving up all year! We have had quite the Holiday celebrations this year, but hey I love a good party! Last Wednesday we had a Supper Club Christmas dinner, and I have to say I think us ladies had little too much fun, if you know what I mean! Nah you can never have too much fun!! I am a newbie to the supper club and I think all the ladies are pretty amazing, I am though a little intimidated to follow hosting supper club after Amanda, she really when all Emily Post on us and did it up right!



Then this weekend Todd and I dropped little monkey off to stay with my parents all weekend while we enjoyed a little US time!! It was just what the doctored ordered, we needed it! Saturday after we rolled out of the bed at 10:30, yes you read that right. We threw on some clothes and headed downtown for a delicious lunch at Serments Corner!!! This place is a must if you live in Charleston. We fiddled around downtown stopping at Godiva to pick up some goodies, Victoria Secret, and Louis Vuitton! Yes it was awesome, I love me some time with the husband!! Later that night we dressed up and headed out to a fabulous Christmas party! Once again I drank too much, danced a little crazy, and passed out as soon as we walked in the door! I don't know about you, but that is what I call a good Christmas party!!!!
