Christmas 2011

We had an AMAZING Christmas!! We were very blessed to be able to spend it with both mine AND Brandon's family! We spent A LOT of time traveling but I would say in the end it was all worth it! :)

Christmas started for me on Thursday night when my 2 sweet cousins and my aunt came over! This is the only family that I have left on my mom's side. My sister had to work so she was unable to make it. It was VERY low-key BUT I SO enjoy any time that I get to spend with these girls! :)

Lots of YUMMY finger foods!

Christmas CANDY!

Pizza Pin wheels-got this recipe from PINTERST :)

I was a slacker and didn't put up a post on my Christmas decorations-so here is my TREE!

All the presents

My fireplace and new "Stocking Holder"

Londa and her Kermit P.J.'s

Thera girl even got a present! :)

The girls opening their gifts & Thera helping, of course!

We spent Christmas Eve with my Family. I am SO sad, I didn't take to many pictures! :( There were TONS of people there and TONS of kids SO lots of chaos! :)

My Parent's Christmas Tree!

Sooo I am going to just catch up on the last few weeks!

  • Thanksgving was AMAZING, we spent the day with my family and then the evening with Brandon's family and actually got to stay with them for a few days, which is something that we don't get to do very much do to his hectic work schedule! I DID NOT get to go "Black Friday" shopping like I had planned and I have regreted NOT going ever since! I will NOT be missing out next year!! :) Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Ohhh and let's not forget about the BIG win that weekend against AWW-BURN! RTR! :)

  • I spent Friday night in my Kitchen BAKING Christmas goodies with my sister! We had SOME success... got a few goodies off of PINTEREST-of course! And wellll SOME unseccessful sugar cookies! This is what they turned out like-


 And they weren't very tastey either! : ( Sooo if you have any EASY sugar cookie recipes PLEASE send them my way! :)

  • On Saturday, I spent the day with Jess (my sister) and my sweet Nanny. We ate a great lunch and did a little shopping! I think that I might have just a TAD bit of BABY Fever, I mean LOOK at how flippin CUTE this is.....

My CRAZY week!

I know I have kind of been MIA... BUT in my defense... I had a HUGE research paper due yesterday, and I spent ALL week working on it, FINGERS crossed for an "A"! So this is what I have been looking at every night when I get home from work!-

Notice my Erin Condren Life Planner, that I blogged about HERE. Well just as expected, I am in absolute LOVE with it! It has been VERY helpful the past few weeks with work, school stuff, hair appointments, dentist appointments and all the other random crap that I keep up with in my crazy/busy life!! Also notice, my COFFEE.. I really am turning into a COLLEGE STUDENT!! And of course, you can see the SHINY new IPAD 2 in the background!! Brandon and I bought that this past weekend, and I AM IN LOVE WITH IT!! It is WAY cool and SUPER fast and easy to use! If you have an IPAD, what are your MUST have apps?! Also this weekend, Brandon got a FABULOUS new work car! For those of you who don't know, he drives 60+ miles to work one way and before the "work car" he was driving a BIG truck so needless to say we were spending LOTS of $ on gas... but NO more of that thaanks to this BAD BOY.... Isn't she cute?! Ha! :)

I also received my poster that I ordered from mypulisher that I blogged about HERE, and I actually put it in my tanning bed room! It was really cute and for FREE, you can't beat that! It looks a little crooked, BUT I think it is just the way I took the pic.

And that pretty much sums up my week! I have friends coming in for the Alabama/GA Southern game, so it should be a FUN weekend! I also plan to put up my Christmas decor and tree, so PICS to come soon!
Happy Friday Y'all!! :)

LOTS of fun and LOTS of YUMMY food! These are a few pics of the "BIG" day! Yes, I know we lost BUT I'm still a Bama girl for life! :)

 Me, Jess (my sister) & our nephew Grayson! (Brandon's Brothers little boy)

 My wonderful husband!

 The Powell Girls! :)

The entire Powell Family! Love them! :)

Nothing like Tuscaloosa on a Saturday game day! Rolll Tide Roll! :)
