Bringing In 2017!

2016 was a GREAT year for our family.

We made a (much smaller than normal for us) move back to the town we originally wanted to come back to after our move from Dubai and it has really been wonderful for us.  It is nice to have a beautiful and private yard and a pool in the neighborhood, definitely a plus for summer.

If you know me any at all, you know I always have a plan, the kind of plans that make people think I am crazy.

I'm not crazy, I just dream big, I love adventure, and I enjoy having big things to work towards.  Of course 2017 will be no different, bigger, crazier dreams than any year so far.  Luckily for me John doesn't find any of mine (our) dreams and goals weird, crazy or out of our reach, he is always quick to jump on board without me even having to convince him.  We are such a good team.

Anyway, here are a few photos from New Years Eve.

We played family games and set up a photo booth and my friend Angela stopped by for a bit.  Honestly, I barely made it till mid night even after having a nap earlier that afternoon.

Wishing you all the best for 2017 and always.

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.
