Happy Black Friday!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their families. One thing about Thanksgiving that I love is eating whatever I want and then going Shopping!!! Black Friday always gets me excited

1) Thanksgiving is all about Giving Thanks... I am so very thankful for my family and friends. Lily Jane has been one of the best blessing in our lives. Monday she turned a year old and what a year makes... She is full of so much joy and has taught us so much!!! I THANK GOD everyday for her amazing smile

2) Black Friday Shopping- What did everyone Score or went out to get?????? Or Do you do Cyber Monday???
Scored.. the Beat Headphones, a riding Car for Lily Jane, Tory FLATS :) and a Nest for our house

3. Today we are taking Lily Jane to the ZOO!! I hope she likes getting to see all the animals.. Pics to come 

4. 4 More Weekends until Christmas.. I can't wait.. Our house is starting to look like Christmas. Lily Jane has found the tree and is starting to pull it down.. OH No.... 

5. I am so Thankful for all the Friendships that have grown from this blog. Can't wait to see how many more blossom!!!

She has brought so much joy into our lives that I could never have imaged. She is truly a gift from God. Here is a sneak peak of her eating cake for the first time.. More will come with a post from her birthday and where all the stuff came from!!!!

To say the least she LOVED the cake!!!


Happy Friday!! Christmas Traditions

Five on Friday!!!!
This week my 5 on Friday is going to be a little different because this week has been so crazy, with Lily Jane's 1st birthday party on Saturday and having everyone coming into town.. Which I am so excited but nervous all at the same time

Linking up today with the usual gang of pretty ladies: ChristinaAprilDarciNatasha , Amanda over atMeet @ the Barre and Karli with September Farm - join in!

So I am doing a little post on Family Traditions

This will be my Minis 2nd Christmas. Her first Christmas was a blur as she was only 4 weeks old. I think my husband and I were so thrown off with having a new baby and a life change. I am so excited to start some family traditions. Growing up we never really had set family traditions that we did so now that I am a Mommy I want to start them with my family. I think we will do more when Lily Jane can really understand wants going on.. 

Our first tradition that I want to start is Christmas PJS:)
Here are some that I am looking at!!!

What are some Family Traditions your family does and what are some you did when your kids were little?


FSU Stay Strong

When I woke up this morning I was not excepting to hear that there was a shooting at FSU. When we hear about them on the news and they are not near us we are very sad but when it happens close to home it effects us in a different way. I was very sadden by the news, as I have studied many times in the Strozier  library. I am not sure what goes through peoples mind to go in and shoot people, I guess we will never know. I am still in shock by this and pray for the all the students and families that were affected by this.. I am so grateful for the wonderful job the FSU Police and TPD Police did and responded in such a quick time.. 

STAND STRONG FSU  #nolefamily 


Its Starting to Look Like Christmas!!

I don't know about you but the temperatures have dropped so low in Florida this week that it is starting to feel more like winter and Christmas time :) which makes me so excited.. Christmas is my favorite holiday. This Christmas will be a little different than last year. Lily Jane will be a year old and she is into everything, so I am so scared about the Christmas Tree. My husband and I have talked about not putting ornaments on the bottom that are breakable.. I am so in Love with all of TARGETS GOLD decor for Winter. I have been obsessed with anything Gold decor. Here are some of my my inspirations for Christmas.

What is your Theme/ Color for Christmas this year?


Weekend Recap…..

This weekend was very nice and relaxing… On Friday the hubby and I actually got to go on a DATE Night…. we have not been on a date in who knows how long. Nana kept Lily Jane and it was so nice… We went out to dinner and just got drinks after and had cupcakes to celebrate 3 year anniversary.

 Saturday we went and got our mini and watched football, and I did last minute crafts for little Miss 1st friday this SAT ahhhh…. We Love our family time and football

Sunday we went to Church and had family photos. I want to start early teaching Lily Jane the importance of God and instill our values early on…

What were you up to this week?????


Its FRIDAY!!!!! Hooray

This week has gone by so fast……I loved having Tuesday off wish every week was a 4 day work week.. That would be nice huh?

I am teaming up with 5 on FRIDAY girls :) I just love this 

1) Planning my little mini's birthday has both been fun and sad.. I can't believe next weekend I will have a 1 year old… She has brought so much joy into our lives and don't know what I would do without her… She is the best give from GOD!!! 

2) On Tuesday will be me and my husbands 3rd year wedding anniversary.. He is my best friend, my baby daddy and really is the best husband.. We are going on a DATE….what a DATE?? I don't even remember what a date is anymore hahah… Nana is going to be keeping Lily Jane which will be weird but nice. We try to make time for each other but it does not always happen. I think finding time with your husband when you have kids is the most important thing….. I can't wait to see what 30 more years will be like. God has truly blessed us….
