December Goals

I can't believe we're already into the last month of the year. This year has been anything but crazy with lots of ups and downs, vacations, birthdays, finding our were expecting our second child and much more! I have so much to be thankful for this year and since many of you are sharing your goals this month I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and share my own goals as well!

1. Be As Less Stressed As Possible- Easier said then done for this OCD/Type A pregnant lady right now but I know I can ask for help when needed
2. Read 2 Books - I've hardly had anytime to myself and reading used to be one of my favorite past times. Of course it's hard to keep my eyes open for longer than 20 minutes sometimes after Lily goes to bed but I'm going to attempt this!
3. Drive Around To Look At Christmas Lights- Zach and I always keep saying we're going to do it each year but this year I really want too. I'm thinking cozy pajamas and hot cocoa to keep us busy too! 
4. Pick Out Paint Colors - We'll be giving Lily's new big girl a room a makeover in a few months so I need really start picking out a paint color we want to use. I can't wait to show you all!
5. Bake Holiday Cookies - It's a huge "need to do! " on my list and this year I want to try to incorporate Lily into helping as well!
6. Plan Lily's 3rd birthday - I can't believe our toddler will be 3 in about a month and I really need to figure out what we'll be doing! Ideas?!
7. Donate - We have some great charity drives going on at work and in the community so I'm going to be gathering up a few ideas to donate this year.

 What are your goals this month?

Hey everyone! So sorry about not posting yesterday. I've been super sick the last few weeks as you know with this awful cold and honestly just felt miserable yet again in the last 24 hours. Luckily I'm hoping to be on the mend today ( hey coffee ! ) and wanted to share a fun little currently survey of what I'm doing today.

Currently I'm..

Drinking: grape juice with lots of ice. I'm not sure what it is but I'm just loving the taste of this sweet drink and having it pretty chilly just makes it taste that much better. 

Baking: At the moment nothing but I'm anxious to get some cookies going in a few weeks to give out to friends, family and co-workers! Stay tuned for some delicious recipes! 

Wearing: A super comfortable light blue maternity top, leggings and boots. Pretty much my new work attire at all times. 18 weeks tomorrow friends! 

Feeling: Merry and Bright. ;)

Buying: All the Christmas gifts.  I've got my immediate family all set plus some relatives and friends. Thank goodness for online sales so I don't have to brave the crowds. This hormonal pregnant lady can loose it in about 5 seconds. 

Listening To: A L L the Christmas music.  I recently downloaded Brett Eldredge's new Christmas album, love !! 

Excited About: Basically everything about December.  I'm creating a Bucket List of all the things I want to do in the next few weeks, including having Lily visit Santa, finish decorating the house, baking cookies and enjoying our last year being a family of three! 

Thankful For: all of you!  Thanks for reading loves! 

What are you currently up too?

Weekend Hangovers

For me there is always such a high when traveling to the east coast to visit my family. Because I only get to see these family members about once a year, I'm always so excited to catch up with everyone even if we only have about 72 hours.
This year was one of our low key years with three crazy toddlers running around, a sweet little one year old and 14 adults. We enjoyed my cousin's house in Marblehead, Massachusetts, located right on the coast. It's one of the prettiest towns, almost out of a movie set with adorable shops, friendly neighbors and that great thick Boston accent!

Thanksgiving was a blast as we ventured out to a restaurant this year instead of having someone host. Lily loved dressing up and eating as much as she wanted. Of course, her favorite was the pumpkin pie and who could blame her! The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing, enjoying the cousins playing together, a few games of touch football and of course lots of laughing, story telling and more eating!
We were able to catch a Bruins game which was awesome! My sister and her boyfriend had a blast enjoying the game together. We always have a great time together and it makes me happy to see her always smiling and giggling with her other half!

Of course, no Thanksgiving is complete without celebrating that someone special in my life. My poor husband seems to usually get jipped when it comes to his birthday since it lands fairly close to Thanksgiving. We were able to celebrate together with a delicious cake from Austria, to which of course, Lily thought we were all singing to her too. Which reminds me, this little lady is turning 3 in a 2 months! I better get cracking on her party planning!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Anyone else having a hangover ( and not the adult kind ) just from all the festivities, traveling or food? Yup, right there with ya!
