It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas

I love the holidays, but Christmas is definitely my favorite. Christmas is one time of the year that I know I will get to see all of my family! And I love all the decorations that go along with the Christmas season.
As soon as Thanksgiving was over I put up our Christmas tree. I love turning the lights on at night and just sitting in front of the's just so cozy : )I don't consider myself to be a great decorator so although I love Christmas decorations I usually keep them to a minimum in our house (sometimes to much can be a little overwhelming)....

THANKFUL Thanksgiving

I have so much to be thankful for today and everyday! 
I am so thankful for God and knowing that he forgives me no matter the mistakes I have made! 
I am thankful for my husband who sacrifices so much for me and our two boys we are truly blessed and I hope that this is something I never take for granted!!
I am thankful for my boys, they are the light of my life and I am forever grateful that I was chosen to be their mama! 
The list could go on and on with things that I am thankful for. This year I feel as though things have been put in perspective more than years past and for whatever reason I hope that I can continue to be grateful for the things I have and always remember to count my many blessings!

Carson's Big Boy Room

I am so excited to be redoing Carson's room! I have been wanting to do something different in there for awhile, but I have ExPeNsIvE taste! So, I have left it kinda plain because I couldn't get what I wanted. Now, I have decided to do things a little at a time and eventually it will all come together (or so I hope). Here are a few pictures of the beginning stages of his room makeover : ) 

This is the before wall color

....and this is the After (I did this all by myself) : )
Thankful for Pinterest for the inspiration

I got my 2nd Birchbox over the weekend! I was so excited to see the box in the mail with the pink writing!! I love blogging and learning about new things through the "blog world"....if it weren't for the random blogs that I read I would have never discovered Birhcbox! I LOVED everything that I got in my first box, However there wasn't really anything that I really like at all in the second one. I know that every sample I receive can't be what I love or need, but I was kinda disappointed this time. Hopefully the next one will be better. If you haven't heard about Birchbox you should check it out

I loved everything in this box, especially the Blinc mascara!
The perfume smelt really good, but other than that I didn't really like the other products.


It's been awhile since I have linked up with Jamie for WILW. I have been super busy and have felt as though I don't have a minute to spare! There are so many things that I am loving lately, here are a few.........
 Some things from Pinterest of course....

Loving these sequin shorts...I need somewhere fun to go and wear them : ) 
Always loving my Family!

Halloween Fun

We had so much fun this Halloween. The boys were both so excited and ready to trick-or-treat the minute they walked in the door from school. We carved pumpkins earlier in the week, but unfortunately I got no pictures of the end result.

The Green Lantern and his Knight : )
