Wrappin' Up Christmas

First of all let me tell you just how stinking glad I am to be back on a roll with my blog. Gee whiz there are a darn lot of pictures that I have been meaning to share with you and have yet to get to! Whew! 

As I roll right on through this last day of December and the last day of 2012 I want to share with you how E and I spent or Christmas. One thing that they never tell you when you get married is that one of the hardest parts of being married is figuring out how to spend your holiday break! Seriously. Not in a bad way at all but boy and I glad that we were both blessed with a week + worth of time off this year. I can't seem to recall how we managed last year! With all of that "leisure time" We made a trip 3 hrs south to my parents house, then we made a trip 1 hr north to his parents house and somewhere in there he has managed to squeeze a work day in Columbia and a weekly meeting! :) 

Our first Christmas this year wasn't actually during our 'Christmas marathon' it was actually the weekend if the 8th when we went home for Daniel's Eagle Ceremony (More on that later)

We got to get together with the Wills gang (Ha ha inside family joke, our answering machine message at one point referred to us as the 'willsgang' tough right?)

We saw my grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins and their ever growing number of kids.

Oh and this dude he's a cutie... and I claim him. 

This guy's not too bad either.

My uncle is training up his grandson in the art of hat wearing.... classy right? Only in St. Francois County.

Then later in the week we made the trip to the great MO North for the Geisendorfer Christmas.

My nieces and nephews are some of the funest people to give presents to.

They have the best reactions.

Every present is "just what they've always wanted"

As I mentioned before all of our gifts from E and I were hand made this year. 

The boys were thrilled with their hats.

For bonus points name what movie is on in the background.

Staying with the parents is always a blessing because it's a chance for us to be kids again. Between the whoopie fusion and the "flarp" and the games of Scattergories when mugging is a leisure activity it gives us a great chance to unwind and relax without the cares of everyday life. 

As far as gifts for these grown kids. E and I made out like fat rats! We were planning on keeping it simple between us since the money tree is having a rough season but no body mentioned that to our parents. They spoiled us rotten this year. I got a new Vera Bradley bag (score!) and he got a new PS3 Controller and we both were stoked beyond all reason to get a new set of sheets! (One of the few things we didn't get hardly any of when we got married.)

Ethan is also learning the art of stocking stuffers.

I think he is learning well... Chocolate and coffee. Well done, young grasshopper. I got him a few things such as batman (an action figure) a whoopie cusion and some flarp but as I said earlier the nephews gave most of those a work out and I think we only made it home with Batman!  

Also a tiny gift to me. A manicure. 



I think the last time I had my nails done professionally was before our wedding and I have been wanting to give this "shellac shenanigans" a try. It's a lovely dark green (that I totally copied off of Mallory) and I hope it holds up to all the claims of 2 + weeks without chips. Also if you take a peek at my pointer finger... yeah the hubby spoiled me a bit too. That's the start of my new stackable ring collection. 

So how was your Christmas? Any Mugging? Also anyone else have any answering machine memories? Ha that was back in the day! 

Have a wonderful and safe New Years Eve to all my wonderful friends!

A very homemade Christmas

"We now return to our regularly scheduled programing." (Hopefully)

Can I tell you all just how much I have missed you? Over the last month I have spent so many moments thinking "Man that would make an awesome blog post" and yet my evenings have been rather "tangled up" recently. 
     As most of you know late in November Ethan passed his MO insurance test and began working as an agent for the Hannibal base of Aflac and since this job is commissioned base, we knew that while he was getting started and trained the two of us will be living on my petite income for a while. To me this meant we would have to get creative for the holidays, since we wouldn't have extra spending money. To which my artsy side announced "Challenge Accepted" 
     The past 6 weeks I have spent every ounce of my free time with a pattern on my computer and a crochet hook in my hand, creating enough hats and ear warmers to warm the heads of everyone we know!
    I now present to you the fruits of my labor of love! I have been hesitant to publish this post till now because I didn't want to spoil presents for anyone that might be receiving one of these lovelies.
 I have been crocheting for several years and so I took this as my opportunity to have some fun and try some new patterns and even create a few of my own.
 I actually bought one of these several years ago that I used as a guide to begin with, but once I got the hang of what I was looking for I branched out.
 I loved the chance to use all kinds of different yarns and different hooks. You can make nearly the exact same pattern but change a couple small things and you have an entirely different look.
 The best part we getting the chance to make each one special and unique for each person. I often found myself thinking on these people and praying for them through out the day as I worked on their pieces.

 I actually sought out a local yarn shop and hand picked a few unique yarns so that I could try something different.

 As you can tell, I frequently got bored with a pattern and felt the need to change things up. That's beauty, there are no rules, as long as it ends up as a hat or ear warmer it didn't matter how I got there.
     I also found myself finding favorite yarns (mostly the more expensive ones :P) and favorite hooks as well. By the end I had definitely worked out what style and what size worked up the quickest and in the last weekend I was cranking out 4 or 5 hats a day. 
     This was such a fun project and with the need that we had I felt that I was able to make so many gifts for so many people and stay well within our budget. Now that is an accomplishing feeling!
     Here is the after picture with several of the presents all wrapped up!
This is a Christmas that even though the packages are small each and everyone came with a small piece of my heart. That means more to me than anything I could ever buy for anyone. 

Hopefully now that christmas is being cleaned up and we are moving into the new year I can reclaim my evenings and get back to a regular pattern with my lovely blog that I have missed so much. I cannot wait to share with you so many of the pictures that I have been saving and the other projects that I have been working on. 

I pray you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to 2013!

Christmas Card

Merry Christmas to all of you my lovely friends and blogger family
     I hope your Christmas Celebrations were wonderful yesterday and if you are part of the Geisendorfer clan not over yet! (It continues on into next week!!)  

     I just wanted to drop in today and wish you all a Happy Christmas and much love. 
     Here is our Christmas card this year along with some beautifully written lyrics that explain exactly how I feel about each card I send out.


"So I’m sending you this Christmas card
To let you know somebody loves you
And I’m singing you this little song
To let you know you’re not alone
And I’m thinking, as we celebrate, how Love came down
So every lost and lonely broken heart would get found
And wherever you are, I hope this Christmas card
Finds you and reminds you
You are loved"
~ Steven Curtis Chapman- Christmas Card~

So my friends know that you are loved, not just SO MUCH by me but also by an amazing heavenly father that sent you the best Christmas gift ever given. 

MERRY CHRISTMAS from the Geisendorfers!

Peace I leave with you

     Have you ever experienced God's perfect timing? I'm sure if you listen to JoyFM very long you'll hear the talk about the right song at the right time, and I truly believe that God moves like that, but I also believe that there is so much more to His timing than just songs. He places people and experiences in our lives to grow us.
     All of that to say, I never cease to be amazed when this happens to me. Each time still feels like a love note all over again. Over a year ago when the sermon series was being set for the Christmas season, none could have known just how badly we would all need a message on real peace.
     Our current sermon series is for Christmas and it's called "Unwrapped" and each of the three weeks will be about different aspects of the Christmas story. In light of the the heart wrenching events on Friday today's sermon on peace was so beyond needed. 
     You see, Jerry pointed out that the way the world sees peace and how the Lord sees peace are two entirely different things. As it seems to be for so many things. But the beauty is, even when the world's "peace" seems to fail us and we are at a desperate loss for why things happen and how we can go on. God's peace that passes all understanding, and endures despite our circumstances continues on. It reminds us that there is more to this life and that the answer to our question of "why?" is Jesus. He answered death with life, and he answers our heavy hearts with a pace that never dies. It's beautifully complex, and yet miraculously simple. 
     Now I can't take credit for this, most of it comes straight from the sermon I heard this morning but it just got me to thinking, and it's so good I just can't, not share. When life catches up with you and you just can't seem to figure out why, look to Immanuel, prince of peace. His peace IS always with us. 

That's my simple thought or this Sunday.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend my friends!

Beloved

Well,

     Hello there, long time no post huh? Has it really been over 3 weeks since Thanksgiving? My oh my. I have missed you, though it amazes me how easy it was it fall off the posting band wagon... 0_0 Oh noes!
     I have had so many adventures and have so many pictures to share. Not to mention I have 2 unposted birchboxes in my home! Ha ha, it will all come in due time!
     I guess what shoved be back on the writing bandwagon really was some deep pondering thoughts... sometimes I just feel like Pooh Bear sitting on his log "think, think, think" so many thoughts swirling in my head.
     Today's deep thought is brought to you by something beautiful that I saw last night.
     It's been unseasonably warm in the midwest, late in the fall and last night I stepped out on my front porch and was struck by all the stars I could see in the night sky. I grew up way outside of any town so when all the porch lights were off the sky just seemed to go on forever with stars. That is really something I miss living in town is the ability to see all those stars. So last night when I could see all thought little lights I knew I had to soak it up, then I found out a bit later that last night was actually the Geminid Meteor shower, so while I was out there in the balmy 45* weather soaking up one of my favorite of God's creation I was treated to a little extra show. The stars were set in motion.

     I sat there in the silence, wrapped up in my favorite quilt, snuggling a puppy and I was just reminded of the beauty that is grace. There are things in my life that I'm not proud of, and choices that I have made that I wouldn't repeat and pretty much I am a dirty, stinky sinner, and yet the perfect loving omnipresent God that set the heavens to spinning sees me and loves me still. 
     I think this is a daily epiphany for me. Life isn't perfect and the world is far from it, and there are daily reminders of just how little I actually deserve love, or even life for that matter and yet, HE DOES love me. In just 12 days we will be celebrating one of the biggest displays of that love. He left those beautiful star wrapped skies and came here to this dirty, imperfect world, over two thousand years ago, so that I could be loved. So that there could be more to MY life. 
     That same God, Father, Abba is constantly reminding this "words of affirmation" girl that HE loves me and that's all I need. My worth is in him, and no words from anyone here on this earth will ever amount to more than that, or take it away from me. That is real, true unconditional love that says no matter what. He has shown me what "love really means". 
     Today, I don't know if you're overflowing with happiness or if you are aching on the inside but no matter what you feel, KNOW this. Beyond a shadow of a doubt HE loves you, He wants you, and you are his beloved. He came for you, He died for you and He's not going anywhere.
     I'm not sure if that's more a reminder for you guys or if my heart really needed to hear it, but wither way. It's truth. Have a wonderful weekend my friends.
This song just really fits what I needed to hear this morning, with all of these thoughts in my head.

Thankful Thursday Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Thanksgiving My friends! 

Have I mentioned that this is my FAVORITE holiday? A day filled with Parades, dog shows, food and family. But most of all Thankfulness for grace and mercy given to me by a heavenly father that I so do not deserve. So here a 5 things in my life I am so thankful for. (Some serious... some not so much.)
1.  This dude. My second Thanksgiving with him (As a married couple) (it's actually our 6th together) and I am so excited to celebrate so many more with him.
2. My two families!
The Geisendorfer side that we will spend the next 4 day with.

And the Wills family that I spent all last weekend with!

 3. This lovely little lady who has come back home to us after a hiatus and vacation at my parents house!
Check out the sweet new hair cut and the rocking new coat!!

4. My church/work/friends to most people this category might be more than one but these days I don't know were small group, work, church ends and where friends begin. They all kind of blend together and I love it that way, I get to see so many people that I love every day and it just makes me such a happy gal!

5. As of tomorrow, IT'S CHRISTMAS SEASON!! That means that I can start decking the hall and playing the music, it's going to be an amazing Christmas this year!
Our cute little tree last year. 
I just can't wait for all of the childhood favorite christmas movies and the Halmark specials! 

I hope you all have a blessed thanksgiving and an amazing day! 
(PS I'm THANKFUL for you)

Can't contain my excitement!

Happy Tuesday My friends! 

     Ok, I can't hold it in any longer I just have to spill! I know for some time I have been hinting at and waiting for change to come and there are a few people close to Ethan and I that have been on this journey with us. But I want to let the rest of the world know about our BIG CHANGE now that it's official!
     On Friday Ethan and I had a whirlwind day as we left for a mini road trip (Mini qualifies as anything less than 3 hrs). I finished up work early and we headed to St. Louis. You might wonder what we were doing in St. Louis on a Friday afternoon. Well, while I was occupying my time with coffee and cameras and people watching in quaint lil Kirkwood....  
A very happy place for me!

My amazing Husband was acing his Missouri Life and Health insurance exam! You heard me right insurance. Dear ole Ethan is officially an employee of Aflac, and will be selling insurance in the North Eastern region of Missouri! We are beyond thrilled.
     To some this might seem like a bit of an over reaction to a job change and maybe it is, but E and I have been earnestly in prayer and waiting so patiently (sometimes not so patiently) for this. He has been on the job hunt for almost a year now, and I'm sure that doesn't seem that long, but when you are living day in and day out two different schedules it begins to wear on a couple. I'm not going to pretend that we aren't completely blessed and we are both completely grateful for the job that he had and the income that it provided but for us as a newly married couple it just wasn't the right fit for us any longer and we were so ready to begin the next chapter of our lives. 
    It almost seems surreal to be typing this, like I should be waiting or hedging our bets still, waiting for the other shoe to drop. You see in the last year or so that E has been on the job hunt there have been countless "No's" and "Not right nows" and I'm sure a few are to be expected but after several months of this, it was kind of difficult not to begin taking each one personal. 
     Either way we are now on the other side of that long cold climb and we are just brimming with excitement! Waiting with anticipation to see what God has in store for us in this next step. I just want to say thank you to all of our family and friends that have helped pray us through this season of wanting and waiting and for sticking by us when plans had to be rearranged or canceled because of wonky work schedules. We are so ready to take this leap of faith and are glad to have you all along for the ride! 

This is one of our biggest praises this Thanksgiving week, what are you thankful for? 

I will resist... Just 4 more days!

Happy Monday Friends.

     Here's the deal. I have no idea what has gotten into me this year. Normally I have this massive soap box about "Christmas can wait" and "give Thanksgiving it's time" because I'll be the first to tell you, Thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday but I seem to have Christmas fever this year. For 3 weeks now I have been pining away to put my Christmas tree up and to begin listening to some of my favorite Christmas music.
     I keep telling myself that I have to wait until after thanksgiving to really begin "Christmasing" and that I don't want to be burnt out on christmas when it actually gets here, but I am just like a kid this year! You would think I've been flipping through the big christmas catalog!
     Even though Ethan and I haven't exactly established "tree trimming traditions" (say that 5 times fast :P) There are a few things that I look forward to every year.

1. A Charlie Brown Christmas. I just love the part where Linus tells the true meaning of Christmas! Seeing as I was the angel in the Christmas play at church every year I can quote that whole scene and I just love it! 


2. Stockings. My parents always did a great job of making sure we had great Christmas memories, but one of my most cherished memories was every year clamoring for the mantle to take down the stockings and see what was in them. Sure they weren't the biggest or the shiniest presents but there is something so exciting about upending your stocking and dumping it out! Now i have introduced my husband to the tradition and and trying to teach him about proper "treats" to stash in stockings! 

3. The music. It seems that I get a new Christmas Album of some sort every year, and personally I don't see anything wrong with that! My current favorite is Dave Barnes' "Very Merry Christmas"

I love Dave Barnes anyway but Him+Christmas= A fresh and fun twist on some Christmas favorites as well as some amazing new songs! (also if you haven't ever watched his Christmas videos on YouTube, you should definitely start a new tradition, because he is stinking HILARIOUS!)


Also I am hoping very much to get Francesca Battistelli's New Christmas Album as my annual addition to my collection!

4. The day after Christmas. This might sound like an odd favorite but when I was growing up Christmas day was always so exciting, with family, food and presents, that I would actually look forward to the evening as things would die down and we would come down from our sugar high and just chill and then the next day to just have my immediate family around cleaning up Christmas leftovers, watching Christmas movie marathons and giving our new presents a good work out. I still look forward to this almost as much as Christmas day! 

In any case I am sure that by the end of the week I'll be un packing the boxes and digging into Christmas decorations! 

When do you normally "bring out Christmas"? I know last night driving through St. Louis it seemed everyone took advantage of the warm weekend and hung all of their Christmas lights! Are you an after Thanksgiving Traditionalist or are you digging into Christmas on Nov. 1?

A snooze, a siesta, and a nap

Congratulations it's Friday eve. We've almost made it through the week. I always feel so accomplished when I make it this far in the week! I have to say though it's been a bit of a tough week as far as energy goes. I'm sure some of it has to do with the "only ok" way I've been eating, fresh fruits and veggies are good fuel, that much I know. But regardless of the cause it's been so though to get my lazy bum out of bed in the mornings to get to the gym and then again in the afternoons around 3 I am practically dozing at my desk. SO I am trying to do al the "right things" to help me not feel so sleepy all the time, such as getting 8hrs of sleep a night, and being more conscious of the fuel I put in my system, however there is one solution that I like very much. NAPS. 

I stumbled upon this infographic the other day on Pinterest and it just fueled my cause! We need to bring naps back into style. 





  It also went on to tell how napping in actually proven to keep us healthier and that there are only 6% of businesses in the US that provide nap rooms and or times to go take naps. However we are one of the only countries in the world like that. Many other countries actually shut down for a siesta period in the middle of the afternoon and everyone just finds a quiet place to spend a few hours, sleeping or resting. Personally I LOVE the idea I wish we had a built in nap time each day.

So until I can solve the sleepiness issue I vote naps all around. 
How about you do you take naps, or do you seem to fit in enough hours over night? Isn't ironic that when we're young we don't want to nap for fear of missing out on something but now that we're older we realize there is nothing sweeter than a nap!

All About the Look

Hello my darling friends, 

     I've been rather sparse around these parts lately. Can't seem to push past this silly writers block, but I am attempting to come up with some fun ideas that will help with that. With that and the holidays coming up I am hoping that you'll be hearing lots from me! 
      I don't know what the weather has been like for you lately but since the weekend it's been down right frigid here! I believe it was 28* on Monday morning when I got up! Yikes! Penguins anyone? 
     Anyway the cooler weather has me in the mood for some cozy clothes! I realized the other day, when one of my sweaters came out of the laundry completely chewed that I might be in the market for an updated fall wardrobe. Now wether my bank account agrees with my closet is another story but I did some online "window shopping" just because!
     I have a pretty generic taste when it comes to clothes, fairly sweet, simple and cute is my motto. Also dresses and cardigans are always in season. Period. So naturally some of my favorite stores carry these types of items first would be Target. I know my hubby can't see the difference between Target and Walmart or why I would drive almost 2 hours to the nearest one just to shop but Target holds a special place in my heart no matter what he thinks. Maurices is right up there on the list, though I generally shop the clearance rack when I am there. (Who am I kidding? I shop the clearance rack EVERYWHERE.) Oh and one of my newer favorite stores is Francesca's. So classy and cute. 
 Without further ado here are a few of my favorite fall picks! 
 Who doesn't love boots? I have just about worn through every pair I have so I am seriously desiring a cute new pair or two or six... Also those little heels just caught my eye, they look adorable and practical! 
 I have been all about the scarves for quiet some time. I must confess I do already own probably 20 scarves and that's not an exaggeration. But I can always use more. Truth be told the big trend right now that I am giving into is the big patterns. Stripes. Polka dots. I would love a few with those! Oh and how adorable is that ruffly burgundy scarf? It feels so girly and dressy. I know that there is a necklace up there as well, I'm in love with the statement necklaces even though I have yet to purchase one. This one seemed like the perfect fall accessory in that deep hunter green.
       Lastly, this girl adores sweaters. Seriously. I am so cold natured that I can live in long sleeved garments 3/4 of the year. As I said before I am head over heels for the bold stripes this yeas so it's no surprise that several up there have them. Argyle is so stinking classic that I really need at least one of those in my closet as well as that academy cardigan. That a-semtrical one arm stripe slays me. I also can't pass up a lovely sweater dress, I think that one would look so cute with some tights and brown ankle boots, and if you get cold a light weight brown boy friend cardigan. Sounds just perfect to moi! 
     So the next time I come into some grand windfall I just might be hitting up the mall to collect these lovelies that need to come home with me. 
What are your some of your favorite fall fashions? Are you into sweaters and boots like I am or you more of a parka person? :)

Living Room Redo

Good Morning my bloggie friends, 
How was your weekend? I had such a busy weekend, but you know what? I feel like sometimes those busy ones are the most fun. 
I have a project that I have been working on a little at a time for a while. I have been wanting to re do the rather large wall over our couch for a while. It's a nice big space (albeit dark from the wood) but I knew I wanted to do something different with it. First of all I have light blue linen curtains and then I won some spiffy wall art from Aly's Blossom and Vine Shop so I kind of picked my theme around those colors. Teal and kind of light blue. Ever since then I have been gathering ideas from *ahem* Pinterest *ahem* and such and have also slowly gathering supplies. In the last few weeks I started putting together my little hand made gallery wall.

 This is a simple idea, a raised phrase on a canvas. I have made these in the past for wedding gifts and decided it was time my home had one as well.

 I have wanted for quite a while to make some kind of project with pieces of a map and I finally decided on how I wanted to it and made it into the one Ethan approved project in the gallery. 
 Then I decided to have some fun with paint chips. Being OCD I had to organize them of course but then I framed them and they made a lovely piece!

Lastly of course I had to just frame a cute little green G. I just love monograms! I feel like it just completes my little gallery wall. 
     Most of these were simple crafts but I had a blast putting them together and once the whole wall was complete it all came together rather nicely.

So what have you crafted lately? Have you made anything "Pinteresting" lately? 

I have had a lot of fun giving my living room a facelift. I have one more little project to complete the room be on the look out for that soon!

A Simple Story

     Everything was so new, the places, the food, the people. She was scared out of her mind, but she knew that this was the right path for her so she pressed on. Overwhelmed at times she slowly began to come out of her shell and make a small group of friends. Ironically they all seemed to be extroverts to her quiet introvert. After having been in her new home for 5 days the girls new friends finally convinced her to brave the outside and have some fun for the night. The small group of friends ventured to the coffee shop for a quiet evening of games and small talk.
     There was chatter all around and so many faces and conversations to take in, but from across the room there was one face that caught her eye. He was self assured, tall, blond and had an easy laugh. She smiled at the goofy gestures he was making but was far too shy to say a word, let along cross the room.
     Weeks passed and she began to think that the tall blond boy was a figment of her imagination. The from out of nowhere mutual friends aligned and there he was, several nights in a row and before she knew it acquaintances were made, friendships were formed and lots of time was spent watching movies and hanging out. 
     Before long they found themselves saving seats at dinner and taking walks in the evenings. Then it happened the friendship became something more, there were phone calls to fathers and then one cold evening under a sky full of stars that tall blond cutie asked me to go steady.
(I can't believe how young we look!)
     Yes, 5 years ago on Nov. 11 the cutest boy I know asked me to be his girlfriend. One of the easiest answers in my life. I can't believe that I have know this man for over a 5th of my life and we have so many amazing memories together. I'm glad that God brought you into my life Ethan Jameson. And I am so incredibly thankful that you picked me. Here's to another amazing 5 years and many, many more. 
     Thank you Jesus for the biggest blessing in my life. He is more than I deserve.

A Change in the Wind Says I

     First of all you guys are amazing. Seriously, I am topping out over 5000 page views. Seriously 8 months ago I just opened up my little corned of the world. A place to go, and think and savor coffee, some friends, and some Jesus time. I'm so completely blessed to now share this space with all of you my sweet chums.
Second the past four days have been incredibly amazing! My weekend started with some craftiness. That's what Saturday's are for after all. I have been meaning to reworking the art over our couch and have been collecting all the pieces and supplies and on Saturday I started the Artsy process.
 

Just a sneak peek of some of my pieces, once I get them put together I'll show you all the finished project!
     Then we had a double date with our favorite Bradsahws. Seriously those peeps their amazing and it's so good to have friends that we relate to so well. Fiddlesticks, bowling, cookie making it made for an amazing evening with 3 of my favorite people.
     Sunday was yet another couples day. E's College roommate Matt came to visit us and he brought his lovely lady Sammi Jo with him. We spent all day just hanging out and spending time with them. God has blessed us with wonderful people around us.

     On Monday I had the most epic of Monday's ever. It was the first Monday of the month so that means All Staff meetings at The Crossing. For the Month of November we had some staff bonding time by watching The Avengers on the Silver Screen in the Orpheum. So I started my week, hanging out with the wonderful people I work with watching an amazing movie. No better way.  
     Then after a nice normal Tuesday, Yesterday I painted till I couldn't paint no
 mo! But the office is really coming along. After several weeks of slowly collecting and working we are just about there and after many talks on what color to paint the walls it's finally the icing on the cake. We are almost a real working office, here in good lil Hannimo. 

So what did your weekend look like? Did you get all artsy crafty or did you go bowling? Hope you week has started off amazing, and that if you have to paint that you have a full set of helping hands! :)

4 O'Clock Friday Giggles

     I know not everybody gets four o'clock Fridays but it's nice to have a short little break just before the weekend begins. 
     So take a laugh break and enjoy the cuteness overload! Happy Weekend friends.

High 5 for Friday

Friday is here! AND Its November. My oh my, where has the year gone? I Said in January that 2012 was going to be our year and you know it really has been busting with blessings. We still have one prayer that we hope to see, but we know God's timing is perfect. 
     I know I have mentioned it in the past but Autumn is my favorite time of year so this week I give you the High 5 for Friday Fall Edition!
 1. {Warm Drinks, Tea, Coffee, Chai. Hmmmm}

 2. {Mums, Actually this poor guy didn't make it. Apparently Office life isn't suited for a Mum.}

 3. {Soup, Warm, yummy, filling and healthy}

 4. {Fall Scents, don't laugh but I have made this bottle of lotion last for quite a while because I love it so much and it's become a part of fall for me!}

5. {Fall Traditions, Just like pumpkin carving and cider drinking, events like Folklife Festival is a principal part of my fall and I look forward to them every year.}

     These are just a few of my favorite parts about fall. The best part? We still have fall for another 2 months! 

So what are some of your fall traditions? Do you make leaf piles, go on hay rides or just stay in and enjoy a big bowl of soup?

Have a great weekend friends and enjoy this amazing season!
