Saying Goodbye to 2012

We have had many ups and downs throughout this past year. 

Some of my favorite moments from this past year have been:
1. Finding out we are having a baby
2. Our Niece Evie being born
3. Celebrating our 3rd Anniversary together
4. All the family moments
5. Seeing 2 of our friends get married and being in the wedding
6. Spending time with friends
7. Getting our new puppy Cash

Some of the not so great but still life changing moments have been:
1. My Dad's heartattack and 5-way bypass
2. My Uncle's cancer coming back
3. My parents moving out of our old home and my grandparents home
4. My Uncle having a heartattack and having to get a pacemaker
5. My Hubby having to have thumb surgery for a staph infection

It has been quite a year but we are truly blessed and I can't wait to ring in the new year! 

Christmas 2012

I'm finally posting about our Christmas! I feel so behind and almost didn't even post about it because I feel like it's in the past already lol! I decided to post about it anyway so if you are reading this blog I hope you don't think I'm too far behind. 

We had a wonderful Christmas as usual. However, I kept thinking about how exciting next years Christmas will be with our new baby! I can't wait to watch him or her enjoy the day. We spent Christmas Eve at Heath's parents house and then Christmas morning with my family. We usually have Christmas morning at my parents house but since they are building a house and are currently living in a camper we had it at our house. We got so many great gifts although I didn't post half of them, we are truly blessed to have such wonderful families. Hubby got me a Northface Jacket and a charm for my bracelet and I got him a new bow and a case for it. Sadly, we didn't make it to all of our Christmas' this year because we had a snow and ice storm and couldn't make it to Heath's grandparents and I sure missed going. Anyway, here are some pictures of our Christmas!

My charm from my Hubby! My favorite gift! It says Baby on it! 



 Me and my Cousin Tiffany! We both got matching jackets!

The gift my cousin Tiffany got me! I love it!

All in all it was a good Christmas and I feel so blessed to be a part of wonderful families! Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas as well!

Snow Day 2012!

We got a white Christmas after all! It started snowing about 5 on Christmas night and didn't stop till after midnight. So we have had a wonderful snow day today! Thankfully unlike so many we didn't lose our electricity so we still had a nice warm house. We got at least 10 inches I love the snow when I have no where to be so it's fine to stick around a couple of days just not too long :)!

Holli in the snow! It was taller then her! 

Holli and Heath!

Cash in the snow!

We made some donuts to enjoy on this snowy day! 

 Me and My Babies!

Cash, it was his first snow. 

So pretty!

The babies weren't too fond of the snow. They really hate to go out in it but Cash is fine with it after he gets in it! We spent the day playing in the snow and enjoyed watching movies the rest of the day! It's been a fabulous day! We also had a wonderful Christmas which I will post pics of later! I don't have them uploaded yet! We get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl next Friday so don't forget to vote in the poll at the top of my blog!

Weekend Recap

Friday I went up to Branson with my Mom and Dad for the day! It was nice to get away for a little while and I really enjoyed seeing the Christmas lights at Silver Dollar City! On the way home the Hubby surprised me by coming in from work. I was so excited to get home after I found out!

Saturday I tried to finish my Christmas shopping but wasn't successful. That evening we went out to eat at Olive Garden with our 2 best friends then came home and relaxed!

Sunday was the Christmas play at church. I received some great little gifts from my adorable Sunday school kiddos and loved watching them in the play. That afternoon we went to the mall with my parents to work on our shopping. We ended the night by eating at Coleton's. 

It was a great weekend and a very busy one. This week starts some of our Christmas parties and I look forward to every single one of them! Hope you all have a great week!

Our decorations this year are not too different from last year. This year when it was time to decorate I was just recovering from being so sick with morning sickness so I was lucky enough to have my Mom to help me decorate.

 Our Christmas Tree! It has the same mesh on it as the wreath. 

My nativity!

 My kitchen is done in Coca-Cola so I had to get out my Santa coke stuff!

Small tree in our bathroom!

And I had to post a couple of my favorite parts of our tree this year!

Angel at the top of our tree! My Aunt Mildred made it and I LOVE it!

Weekend Recap!

This week has flew by and I haven't had time to blog, but anyway I've had a pretty good weekend!

Friday and Saturday I really didn't do much, I've been working on my Christmas cards and wrapping gifts! Today has been a wonderful day though despite the rain and storms! It started with church and then a baby shower for a lady in our church. It was so fun to look at all the little baby clothes and get ideas for if our baby is a boy! Then I watched the Christmas movie The Mistle-Tones with my Mom and this wonderful day ended with two of our best friends getting ENGAGED!! I'm soo excited CONGRATS Chris and Emily! 

Since I didn't get one posted last week, I do have a baby bump picture to post later this week and I also will post a poll to see if ya'll think it's a boy or it's a girl!

I'm also really hoping to get pics of my Christmas decorations up so stay tuned!

Have a GREAT week!

Weekend Recap and Catch Up!

Wow it sure has been awhile since I've blogged! I just really haven't had much to post about except the Baby and it hasn't been that exciting lately so I didn't feel the need to post! So let's catch up......

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful! We enjoyed spending it with all of our family and always love the holiday's so we can spend more time with family!

Now for this past weekend!

Friday morning was a Dr. appointment! We got to see our little baby and hear it's heartbeat. My Dr. also gave us a clue as to what it might be but we will have to wait until January to be sure! I am officially in my 2nd trimester and 14 weeks along! That afternoon and evening we stayed home and relaxed all day. 

 Saturday this sweet girl came to visit her Aunt and Uncle for a little while. She's such a little cutie and I love watching her grow!
After that we went out to eat that night at Fuji's with friends! It was such a good time and I love seeing our friends!

Here is a picture of the wreath I made! I love it! I do have all of our Christmas decorations up and will be posting pics of them soon! Now if only I could get all of our Christmas shopping done! 

Today I haven't felt good so I have stayed home but I think I've been feeling our little baby all day so that makes it better! The Hubby had to go back off to work for a week and so he left today! I miss him already but at least it's only a week this time! 

 I'm hoping to get a baby bump picture up this week and also a poll to see if ya'll think it's a boy or a girl! Enjoy your week!

Weekend Recap!

I am finally starting to gain my strength back and have been out and about. Most of the weekend has been good. 

Friday afternoon I went with my Mom to Dazzle Daze! We go every year and always have a great time. Friday night the Hubby came in from working out of town and I'm so glad he's back home. 

Saturday we ate lunch at Chili's with friends and then went to a birthday party that night. 

Today the Hubby has been hunting and I went to church. It hasn't been the best day but I'm keeping my head up. I'd also like to ask for prayers for a friends Mom who was in a terrible car accident Saturday night and isn't doing good. 

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving and watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I hope you all enjoy your week and I'm hoping to get a baby bump picture up soon even though there's no bump yet!

Sickness = Lack of Posting

It has been way too long since I've posted! I have been sick and haven't been able to post. 

I came down with a horrible sinus infection and being pregnant it is hard to take medicine. So I finally got some medicine and started to feel better. Unfortunately, since I was already so sick I started getting sick to my stomach Saturday night and couldn't hold anything down all day Sunday. So by Monday I was still sick and called the doctor. They called me in some medicine to make me not get sick and I had to get an IV of fluids since I was a little dehydrated. I am better now and finally starting to gain my energy and strength back. 

I will hopefully be back to my normal posting now. I am getting very anxious to find out if we are having a Boy or a Girl. I have several Facebook friends due around the same time as me and they are starting to find out and now I want to know! My next doctor appointment is November 30th and I will be 13 weeks! 

I am also anxious for Thanksgiving! I love family time and eating! I'm also pretty excited for Black Friday, I am hoping to get most of my Christmas shopping done. I really want to be finished by the end of November, I have quite a list to work on though! 

Hope you all are doing well!

Halloween 2012

It's been a pretty good Halloween! Unfortunately, the Hubby had to leave to go back to work so I didn't get to spend Halloween with him :( I did have a good day though!

Here's my sweet girl wearing her Halloween bows!

Here's my Halloween socks! 

I didn't dress up this year because I didn't think I was really going to go anywhere. I did however go to my church. We had a glow out bonfire! It was lots of fun roasting marshmallows and hot dogs (although I didn't eat any hot dogs). Plus getting to hang around the fire and have some great conversations. I'm glad I got to go because we don't get many trick or treaters in our neighborhood so I would have been at home bored! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween it's almost time for bed for this girl!

Weekend Recap

I've had a pretty good weekend! Friday I went to Branson with my Parents, My Brother, My Sis-In-Law, and my Niece. We went to Silver Dollar City for my Brother's birthday! 

 Waiting to see the Saloon Show! 

Evie on the way to Branson!

We also ate at Joe's Crab Shack before heading home. It was a long day but a lot of fun. 

Saturday I didn't do much at all! I was resting up from the busy Friday I had. 

Today we celebrated my brother's birthday with lunch and cake with the family. 

It's been a fun weekend but I miss my Hubby and can't wait for him to be home! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Hello Out There!

Well it has been forever since I have blogged! I just haven't had very much to talk about and I still don't really. I decided I needed to update though for my loyal followers who I'm not sure are even following me anymore. 

I haven't been doing a whole lot lately. The Hubby is off working so it's pretty boring around here right now. Lately I've just been giving my piano and voice lessons, working on Mary Kay, and spending time at home. 

It seems we are expecting some storms tonight so it looks like I'll be staying in with my puppies and enjoying some TV. I'm really loving the new shows Nashville and Chicago Fire. Anyone else watching these? I'm glad I have DVR so I can watch them both since they come on at the same time! 

That's all I have for now I guess. Surely, I'll have some more exciting things to talk about soon. Hope you all are doing well!

Missing in Action

Hi all! I've been a little MIA lately so thought I'd play catch up! My pictures some how got a little out of order so just bare with me. Hubby has started working nights so I don't do a whole lot and don't get to see him much. It's been pretty boring lately. We've been watching the Hog games but I can't really talk about them (ha)! If you know how bad they've been doing you know why I can't discuss it! 

So here's a little of what I've been doing!

This Mary Kay ad was in my new Cosmo Mag! :) LOVE IT!

Sweet girl all snuggled up on my lap!

Me and my Sweeties on Game Day!

Here's me and the Hubby at the Brantley Gilbert Concert! Our Neighbor gave us free tickets unfortunately it got rained out so we didn't get to see him :(

Cash thought he needed some candy! 

That's about it! Just spending some time with the babies and working on Mary Kay and giving piano and voice lessons. I'm also putting in my application to Sub at the school. Other then that not much going on!

Hope you all are doing wonderful and still reading this little blog!

Saturday We relaxed most of the day until it was time to watch the first Razorback game of the season which we won!! We went to a friends house and enjoyed yummy food and great friends! It was a good day!

Hubby surprised me with the Razorback barbie! :)

Saturday- I went shopping with my Momma and she got me this adorable bracelet!

Saturday night we went to a friends birthday party.

Random Thursday

Just thought I'd post an update of how our week is going! Hubby got his stitches out yesterday and gets to go back to work Monday! I'm thankful he actually gets to work close to home for a change. 

It's official I'm looking forward to fall. I can't wait for football, fall scents, pumpkins, and all the great things that come with fall! Fall and Summer are my favorite seasons when Winter comes I just want to hybrinate.

We've just been enjoying the last few weeks of summer. Going to the Hubby's physical therapy, spending time with friends and family, and trying to relax as much as we can! 

Hope you all are having a wonderful week and enjoy your weekend!
