Family, Shopping and DIY Time

Today was my first serious Black Friday shopping day, it was way more fun than I thought it could be!
And saving hundreds of dollars, being back home by noon in time for Thanksgiving left overs for lunch and a nap... amazing!

I have just about all my shopping completed (major yay) and all the decorations up, tree and all.






We had a relaxing Thanksgiving with family, I think my family is one of the few that never has any drama when we get together, pure chill vibes.
This week I have been getting so many packages at the door for the baby, it gets more and more exciting everyday. =)
I am (as usual) working on DIY?craft projects, I am kinda nervous about my newest.
I am making a headboard.
Yeh, crazy, I know.
But Joanns had a super sale today, I have been waiting for black Friday to get my almost 80% off on the materials I need. 
The women in the store are so sweet and seasoned at this stuff and gave me some advice.
As soon as my handy man (John) is not too busy working I will bat my big brown eyes and get him to help me put it all together.

Christmas spirit is strong here, the kids make everything more exciting.
Elves have already come, I wonder what mischief they will get into this year?

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!










Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
