Can you believe the holidays are over! Man it went by fast this year! I hope your Christmas was as memorial and magic as our was. Now if some of that magic would could pack up all my Christmas decorations I would be one happy girl!

Todd is moving into his office space next week, which means my future nursery will be empty! I am a little excited and overwhelmed at decorating this "all white nursery". For some reason I am terrified I am not going to love it!

Here is what we have so far........
  I am thinking I may need a touch of color? Maybe on the walls?? What do you guys think?

A light pink?
Or maybe a light gray??

Or stick with the oatmeal in the above?

Can you tell I obsess over things a little ;)
As always thanks for your help loves!

Happy Friday!!!

Hope you all enjoy your weekend!!! I know we will, Santa is coming early, and we are so excited! My parents are coming to town today and we have lots planned! Which include building a swing set from scratch(yep husband and dad are amazing like that), another visit to the festival of lights, making a gingerbread house, whipping up an early Christmas dinner, watching Christmas Vacation, and O yeah Santa Claus coming to visit Carson on Sunday! We have done this every year because it's just a little easier and we can still travel home for Christmas. This will probably be our last year as our little monkey is getting too smart for his own good!!!

PS Carson also has pajama day and a Christmas party at school along with our annual Christmas playgroup, so he is quite the busy man himself!

Can you tell he is excited!

Christmas Spirit......

Carson and I have been getting into the Christmas spirit! We made Christmas cookies last week, and he had the best time. He loved pressing the cutter into the dough!

My girlfriend Natalie gave me the most wonderful smelling candle and diffuser for my birthday!! The perfect holiday scent! Love it!!!


 We also visited Santa!! Carson Loves him some Santa always has, and this year he was even more excited! He keeps asking when we are going back? The line wasn't exactly short, so probably next year ;)

This was our second visit to the Festival of Lights, and on the first Santa was still in the North Pole, so we improvised, and Carson loved this silly bulb almost as much as Santa himself!

Turning on the fire every night has become a must too! I am really loving this time of year!!!
 (Note: I just realized I didn't even have the fire turned on when I took this picture ha!)

A couple of things...........

* Our home is being featured today on the lovely and talented Aubrey at All Things Bright and Beautiful today!!!

* You guys are the best!!!! Thanks for all your help yesterday! I think most of you will be happy to know I have decided to do the scalloped roman shade and layer it with white drapes! I hope it looks as fabulous as I have it pictured in my head :)

It has been just perfect so far! I woke up to beautiful red roses, sweet cards, and a  gift card to a day at the Mom Spa!!

Also I woke up to these faces and that is what really made it perfect!!

Curtians for my Baby Girl...........

So you guys, I have had the white nursery all planned out in my head for about 3 years now. Seriously this is no joke, and now I having a hard time pulling  it all together!!! So help please, as you know I suffer from severe OCD! I just cant come up with the perfect window treatments and its driving me NUTS!

Option 1 
The layered look. I love this look, but it's going to be the most $$$

Option 2
just the roman shades with a little boarder down the sides( the inside mount)
And obviously mine would be a sand color with a white band.

Option 3
The same as above but a higher outside mount

Last Option 4
Just a solid sand color roman shade with a scalloped bottom

Ok ladies please give a girl a little advice! Xoxo

Favorite Christmas scents............

Do you all love Christmas time as much as we do??? One of my favorite things is to pull out all of my favorite candles and soaps. Something about the smell of the pine makes me so giddy, and reminds me of Christmas as a child. So I thought I would share some of my favorites with you guys, and I would love it if you shared with me your favorites too!

These are all amazing and I have them all in the house as we speak!

PS Please say a little prayer for my sweet friend Chassity as she had her baby boy Fletcher a little early.Everyone is on the mend and Mr.Fletcher is doing great, but still can't come home yet. I know this must be so hard not to bring her bundle of joy home so if you don't mind lets send some hugs her way! xoxo

How sweet is this little man! cant wait to get my hands on him soon :)
