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...

Holiday Dressing: Braving the Stores

I couldn't resist throwing together some holiday outfits, even though they aren't quite as glitzy as they've been in the past (mat leave will do that to you I suppose).  I do about 90% of my shopping online, but our Christmas plans changed drastically & I was left needing last minute gifts.  This outfit is comfy, warm, & festive…perfect for waiting in long lines. Oh, and the bump is very visible…much faster than the first time, but I'm loving it :)

The Best Kind of Weekends...

The best kind of weekends involve little outings with the family & most importantly, football.  Every Sunday is a race to finish all the days tasks before 1pm, just so we can sit down & relax as a family.  This hasn't been the best season for our beloved Bears, but Zoey has really enjoyed watching her parents yell at the the Tv...

Cambridge Farmer's Market is the perfect size to stroll through...
Lazy long weekends were made for patio time...
A well-stocked fridge somehow makes it better when your team is losing...

Photo Friday: Farewell, Fall (Part 3)

And just like that, the weekend is here! Counting down the days until the holidays officially begin & family arrives.  Until then, I'm wrapping up playing catch-up with the final installment of Fall.  Once I go back to work in January, I'm hoping I'll be able to post more with a more reliable schedule (aka: I won't be chasing an infant around all afternoon).  A non-alcoholic cheers to the weekend, from this prego to all of you...

Farewell, Fall (Part 2)

This installment of the worst blogger ever covers Canadian Thanksgiving, the pumpkin patch, Halloween, & the initial part of November.  The snow is currently falling, I've just finished wrapping up some last minute gifts, & here I am…taking you back to fall.  Enjoy :)
