& this would be the second...

Sorry about my lack of posts the past 2 days, life kind of got in the way if you know what I mean! I feel like I've been a little off with this Holiday season this year, in a good way. I made a decision to be more present, and less blogging was a part of that for a few days. But.... guess who's back? ;)

Like I said, I had 6 whole days off work... it was incredible. Since I've already posted on the first half of my little work-break, I'll show you guys how the second half went. and oh boy, was it wonderful.

We spent our Christmas Eve at my Aunt and Uncles... they have the most beautiful country kitchen eve {swoon}.

Brother, Dad, and my man.

My adorable Great Grandma Agnes. She's the sweetest.

We got some pretty amazing gifts if I do say so myself ;) this, my friends... is an authentic Bengals poncho my dad and his fiance got from Mexico! Its amazing! & Caleb will be wearing it to the last home game of the regular season tomorrow.

ladies, is there anything hotter than a man who loves kids?

& what's Christmas without a little father-son wrestling match?!

see the look on my great grandma's face?! Ha!

Time for Christmas morning! This year... turned out to be the year of electronics! & I can't say I'm mad about it ;)
my grandma with her new iPad!
My brother & I got new kindle fires... WHAT?! :) eeek.
Caleb came over after Christmas with his fam, and got a video camera!

Stockings are one of my favorite parts about Christmas morning. I always stuff them to death!

Wednesday consisted of me and my MOH, and one bridesmaid going dress shopping for them for my wedding. None of the girls are going to have the same dress, and I am so excited to see how it turns out. Hope you all had as great of a Christmas season as I did! 


  1. 1. That Bengals poncho... LOL! Amazing! I have friends who would kill for that thing!

    2. Sooo jelly of your Kindle Fire! Seriously! Do you do any blogging/blog reading on it??

  9. Six days off work sounds like a dream after working through the holiday season. I think I have those same boots, love them.

  10. Oooh, I'm glad you got the Kindle Fire - I need you to tell me about it! Haha. I spent about 30 minutes in the store the other day debating between the iPad (too expensive), the Kindle Fire, & the Samsung Ice Cream Sandwich (I think that's what it was called?) Do you love the Kindle?


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
