Around here

Monday, December 22, 2014

Today is my 250th (!) blog post. Who knew it would grow into that! My actual blogiversary isn't for about 3 more weeks.

I am flying to Indianapolis today, then taking a van to Purdue University. My brother is driving from West Point, VA and he's accepted a post-doc there. We are on a whirlwind trip to try to find him a place to live. It should be great fun. Haven't gone on a road trip with Tommy (maybe ever?). And there's nothing like driving home on Christmas Eve.

It will be our first Christmas without this baby. She loved to rip the papers off our presents for us.

I've officially signed up to become a yoga teaacher (RYT-200) through Bristol Yoga. The course will last from March - August and I am TOTALLY excited!

Joe and I attended our first Ugly Christmas Sweater Party and had so much fun! He even agreed to be twins. #twinning!

I spruced up my Christmas ornament wreath with the perfect $2 bow from Big Lots. Score!

I tried to remember everyone on my Christmas list (I always forget someone)

We were able to stay warm at Dollywood. Lots of layering! And adorable fuzzy hats help tremendously.

We had milkshakes at Steak 'n Shake. Yum!

I found the cutest pajama pants at Jockey recently.

And I made one more handmade card for a good friend.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I will see you back here next week. Hope your celebration is all that you want it to be.

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!
