Let the stay-cation begin!

Although Caleb had to work a normal day yesterday, I was at home. I began our stay cation with a day of productivity! I think I did about 4 loads of laundry, edited an insane amount of photos and successfully watched nearly 3 movies all at the same time! Sadly, I've picked up a really nasty cold/sore throat, but I'm doing everything I can to kick it so we can enjoy the freedom of this stay-cation together! :)

Let me rewind though, we had a fabulous weekend! The ladies of my family had our 2nd annual day of baking and it was seriously awesome. We spent hours catching up, being silly, and baking our fingers off.

My mom couldn't make it this year (she started her new job in Hawaii as a traveling nurse on a 13 week assignment yesterday - prayers please), so I stepped in and made her amazing salted caramel mocha fudge - omg. So tasty. Recipe to follow!



My company Christmas party was over the weekend and it was nothing short of amazing! Caleb and I  had a blast at Eddie Merlots. It's seriously the best food I get to enjoy all year! It was also fun getting to dress up, and act like real adults ;)


Sunday was a lazy day. It's hard for me to even mention the word Sunday since our Bengals QB is out with a thumb injury. We have total faith in our backup, but still, we miss Dalton. Despite the loss, we had a great day in.

I'll probably be a little absent this week as Caleb and I have LOTS of fun planned for this awesome week off work! Enjoy your day, friends!!!

  2. That fudge looks incredible! Can't wait to see the recipe :)

    My cousin is a traveling nurse and she loves it and has been all over...Florida (2 times), North Carolina, Nashville, Hawaii (2 times) and now she's trying to get a rotation in the virgin islands...seriously so cool! Hope your mom enjoys it just as much, and prayers for her new job and traveling!

    Hoping you and Caleb enjoy your staycation, so fun! Y'all definitely deserve it :)
