Another Sunday.. Wow where does time go?! Every week seems to fly by. As they say “The days are long, but the years are short.” It’s bittersweet. I enjoy my life so much It’s sad to look back and realize how fast time goes. Try to cherish every moment! Saturday morning I took Christmas card photos for my sister Jamie and her husband & she snapped a few of Everett and I. They turned out so good, I have to share. I am so blessed to have him. ❤This weekend was also our final family get-together before my little nephew is born. How crazy is that?! I can’t believe in just a week or so we will have a baby as part of the family. Babies are my weakness. I can’t wait to snuggle him, smell him, and be his aunt. I’m so excited that I’m going to share some pictures of his nursery. My sister did such an amazing job with it, I just have to share.Isn’t it perfect?! They are such a beautiful couple… I just can’t wait to meet him. Beware: lots of baby related blog posts in my future! 😉 Saturday afternoon we celebrated Thanksgiving early, since baby is due right around actual Thanksgiving. It was a blast! My family is seriously the best. We ate amazing food, and did our annual gingerbread house contest! Everett and I won! YAY! It’s such a fun tradition. If you’ve never made a gingerbread house, you should! They have kits sold at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, pretty much wherever Christmas decor is sold. 🙂 Wine & enjoying Christmas decor.. Nothin’ better! As for today, It’s a typical relaxing Sunday, my fav! We went on a long walk around the pond by my house to enjoy the beautiful weather we’re having. It’s 62 degrees today! Mid-November and 62 degrees is basically unheard of in Minnesota. You HAVE to take advantage it, because any day we could get hit with negative temps, that’s just how MN works. I snapped this pretty tree on our walk 🙂I also want to give a shout out to Kelly over at I Could Sleep In That for the amazing and thoughtful giveaway she did on her blog in October. I received the package on Friday and LOVE everything in it. The blush is an amazing berry warm color for fall, and the revlon lip crayon is a beautiful burgundy color for fall as well. I’ve worn them everyday this weekend! Not to mention Hocus Pocus, always a classic! Thanks again, Kelly you are so sweet! Go give this girl a follow! 🙂
Thanks for reading, and as always, wishing you a great week ahead!
My sister The Grady Bunch Blog & I decided to start up a Sunday tag called Snapshot Sunday! Sunday’s are all about reflection on the weekend and getting your ducks in a row for the upcoming week. It is definitely one of my favorite days of the week! So we collaborated and created this cute logo to go along with the series. Feel free to grab the image and join in on Snapshot Sunday! Can’t wait to hear about everyone’s weekends & what you are looking forward to this week! 🙂
This weekend was another good one for me! Friday Everett and I got back from our mini-vaca and were LAZY. We hung around the house, did laundry, and did a quick Target run because I forgot my pillow at the hotel.. oops.. luckily it wasn’t my favorite pillow and I was just waiting for a good excuse to buy a new down pillow, so there you have it, a great excuse for a new pillow!
Saturday, we slept in and then went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch with my dad and sisters. My dad had never been to Chick-Fil-A (I know, crazy) so we decided it would be a good idea to finally introduce him to the delicious-ness. After that my sisters and I bought ingredients for baking festive cupcakes for Halloween. They turned out AMAZING & so easy.. I’m savoring my last 2 in the fridge. We used: One box of spice cake mix, half a can of pumpkin puree, and cream cheese frosting topped with a candy corn pumpkin. SOOO YUMMY & so moist! If you’re looking for something delicious and easy, this is it! The rest of Halloween evening we watched a few movies, and caught up blogging!
Sunday has been productive, and relaxing all in one! The best combo, right? Everett and I toured an apartment complex this morning and it went really well! The place is gorgeous and everything I wanted in an apartment. We’re so excited at the thought of getting our own place together. But with that excitement comes the nerves! We still have yet to decide if this is the one between our finances and timing, but I have a good feeling. Lots more to come regarding that! Can’t wait to blog about home decor! ALSO, I’m wearing my ADORABLE and oh so cozy blanket scarf. Definitely my new favorite item in my wardrobe. Check out my sister’s post at The Grady Bunch Blog for details!
As for the rest of the day, I plan on RELAXING and catching up on laundry. I must admit, I’m not looking forward to going back into work tomorrow. I haven’t been in the office since Wednesday, so it might be a little rough.. Just gotta stay positive! Wishing you all a great Sunday, and hope you’ll join in on Snapshot Sunday!
Today was a typical Monday and I hated every second of it. I woke up after tossing and turning all night with yet again a pounding headache and terrible neck pain, the last thing I wanted to do was go to work and sit at a desk for 8 hours. I have to admit, one of my worst qualities is my negativity. I find myself constantly thinking of all that could go wrong instead of what could go right. Too often I beat myself up about that one tiny thing I did wrong instead of focusing on the twenty other things I did that were good, or had a positive impact. Especially at work. I think the first step to seeking a more positive life is admitting your faults and acknowledging what isn’t working. I envy those people who always are smiling, always seem happy, and always have a positive outlook. Soooo I’ve decided to force myself to write (or in this case type) ten positive or good things that happened when I’ve had a terrible day or just find myself being a negative nancy. So here are my ten for this Monday, & heres to hoping tomorrow is a better day.
- I treated myself to a delicious caribou coffee this morning.
- I finally got my order in the mail from jane.com (love that place) & it’s an adorable ruffle long sleeve shirt!
- It was a beautiful fall day today! So warm for this time of year!
- My cat, Oliver is being extra snuggly today.
- The Voice is on TV right now! Love this show.
- It was a good hair day. (always a plus)
- I rediscovered my love for Jack Johnson & bought 3 of his songs on iTunes.
- I made fettuccini for dinner! YUM.
- The new face wash I bought this weekend seems to be helping my skin. I’ll share it if it keeps impressing me!
- I realized there are only 5 days until I get to see my favorite artist in concert again, KIP MOORE!
