This is 31

So I turned 31 a little under two months ago.  My 30th year was pretty epic & will be tough to beat. I'm about to be a mama to two little girls under the age of two…in like 3 months…I cannot wait to add another member to our family.  Here's a recap of my perfect, low-key bday...

I know, Uggs are ugly…but they are amazing, especially on prego feet!
My parents brought me up a bday cake, so sweet :)
New toque from my parents (Hudson's Bay via Lord & Taylor)
My only request was an early dinner out at Blackshop restaurant
Pretzel bun burger for the win
A new scent gifted from my Mother in Law (along with the new Dyson Slim vacuum…best ever!)
Birthday dessert…caramel pecan cheesecake
More gifts from the Mr. & furbabies (sweater: Nordstrom, arm warmers: Free people)
New ring (from myself to myself) via Free People

Holiday Recap: Celebrating Christmas

It was a very special Christmas in our house… it was Zoey's first, my parents were here, we are blessed with another little one on the way, & we got to celebrate with both sides of the family under one roof.  I tackled my Aunt's famous cinnamon rolls & while they aren't as good as hers, I got pretty close.  I've been absent for a few months again, but there's good reason I promise. A few scares with baby #2, a new role at work, & trying to get as many hours as possible to make mat leave again has made blogging the least of my concerns.  I'm going to try because I really miss it & all of you...

Holiday Dressing: Casual Christmas Eve

It's rare to spend Christmas Eve in our own beds, as we're usually in Peterborough or Iowa.  This year will be spent making a traditional surf & turf dinner, followed by a tour of holiday lights, & home just in time to tuck Zoey into bed before Santa arrives ;) Since we won't be heading to church or anywhere fancy, I kept it on the casual side with comfy denim & a trusty blanket scarf…

Photo Friday: Christmas For Three

Gearing up for our first (& last) Christmas as a family of three.  We've had the tree up for a little over a month, so the house has felt so festive.  Zoey has been enjoying all the lights, sounds, & sparkles around the house.  Children really do make the holidays that much better! Good luck to those of you still braving the stores & safe travels over the holiday weekend...
