Christmas 2015 + Random thoughts


I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that it will be 2016 in three days!!  This year has flown by so fast, and for whatever reason, it feels like it has been the fastest yet.  And judging by all the things we already have going on heading into 2016, something tells me this coming year is going to fly by just as fast. 

That being said, as far as the year ending, this Christmas was so fun and magical, especially with Taylor being three and Carson almost seven!  The age they're at really takes me back to how magical Christmas was as a kid. 

I love this picture of their little bed heads when they first woke up to see what 'Santa' brought them! And as you can see, Taylor received lots of puppies, as she is obsessed with all things related to dogs and puppies right now.  And Carson was so excited to see his Ipad and scooter waiting for him. 


The two of them had so much fun with all of their cousins! 



Sweet matching sweater dresses for Taylor and baby Hallie. 


 This was Christmas morning at my parents before we headed to celebrate Christmas with all of Todd's family.  It's almost impossible to get everyone looking at the camera these days, but I still love this picture with my little crew.

(And I was so excited to wear my new tunic dress, as it's so soft and comfy) 


But the best part is the fact that it can be worn off the shoulder for a totally different look! 


// Today I plan to get started packing for our trip, but my guess is I'll end up waiting until the last minute ;)  I have a few things arriving today, and I can't wait to share all the fun new spring arrivals I am taking with me!  Praying I come back with a nice tan (and not an extra 20lbs)...ha!  Not going to lie, I love to eat (a lot) and be completely lazy when on vacation ;)


// Scored this leopard Equipment dress on MAJOR sale for $94.99!!! I have never seen an Equipment dress marked this low!!  FYI it runs big so size down at least one size! 




// Even with it being the holidays we have shown our house several times, and oh boy, did I underestimate how hard it is to keep a house "show ready" with two kids and a dog!  For anyone that has sold a house, please feel free to share any secrets you may have, as far as making things a little easier...I am all ears :)  And while we are talking about houses, I've been pinning away for our future house.  Loving all of these bright inspiration pictures.

  1. Love your sweet pictures from Christmas! Girl, I head out in a few weeks for my honeymoon in Turks and I pray I don't gain a ton of weight either since it is all inclusive. Any good things to pack for a tropical getaway let me know :-)

  3. Our big thing was vacuum every night and make sure the kitchen was spotless. We don't have children yet but have a dog. We wanted to make sure we could tidy up in a matter of 30 mins if we had to....and it def happened. Good luck!!

  4. Don't worry about putting away all the mess when you have a house showing. Throw it in a laundry basket and put it in your car. Or into the washer/dryer. No one looks in there.
