Christmas Break Thus Far

I've been a little MIA lately with posts but I'm thinking it might be like that over break- not that I don't miss ya'll daily but because it's nice to disconnect and spend time relaxing with family, etc. I'm so fortunate to work at a place that gives us two full weeks off! The only thing I miss about my office at this point? This view beside my computer:


 (sometimes you gotta just disconnect for awhile though) Catching up on all my Christmas movie favorites in the next few days is definitely something on my list! I was talking with Jenn from Going the Distance today and she did however motivate me to get off the couch and squeeze a post in. I got hit HARD with a cold/sinus infection in one as of last night and being preggo means its worse since I can't load up on Nyquil for sleep and take other remedies. Any mommies out there with any recommendations feel free to send them my way! Also speaking of Jenn, can ya'll just look at what she sent for baby girl? This onesie completes me! And Mikaela from Pink Persistence sent the most adorable soft pink bunny card for her as well! Seriously- I would die without my blogging gals! Love ya'll! xo



I do want to say however that the Otey Christmas party and open house was a HUGE blast! I'm thinking it just might have to become our new tradition. We had so many of our friends and family come celebrate the holidays and take tours and everyone had a great time! I'm pretty sure I haven't stayed up until after 1am since I found out I was pregnant haha I might still be recovering.... I seriously cannot believe Christmas is right around the corner and believe it or not I have got to make myself get up and finish some shopping (not much thankfully) today. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and I hope the holidays are p-e-r-f-e-c-t so far! (oh hey Virginia, where's my snow??)


Hubby surprising me with a card display craft! Had to snap!

  9. Oh no! Being sick while pregnant sucks, but it just continues on when you're nursing as well since you can't take many drugs then either. You get used to finding natural remedies. I swear by apple cider vinegar & honey! And lots of EmergenC!
