Auld Lang Syne 2013

Happy New Year everyone! 

We took it easy this year and spent it at home with family.

New Years 2013-001Ate good food….

New Years 2013

…played fun games, and welcomed the new year with some fabulous champagne {I only had a sip}. All in all, a fabulously cozy and wonderful farewell to 2012.

Of course, Nick was lucky enough to get a pre new year kiss from Tessa…


2012 was definitely an eventful one… Married my best friend and the love of my life! * Started a new job * Celebrated many wonderful weddings and welcomed two sisters-in-law to the family * Met and instantly fell in love with our little nephew, Braxton * Announced to everyone we are expecting our own little bundle in May!

I really can’t complain!

Fare well 2012, Bonjour 2013! This year is going to be wonderful. I can’t wait to live it!



baloonsWhat a great husband I have! He threw me the most fabulous SURPRISE 30th birthday party a girl could ever ask for! And I was genuinely surprised!!

booI had such a great time and it definitely made turning 30 hurt a little bit less! Plus, I love my family and friends..and this just gave us another reason to all hang out together!!


It’s very rare that we get one of these pics in, so I’m really happy that all of my girls were able to be at my party!


Thanks, love, for throwing such an awesome party and for being such a great person in my life! I couldn’t imagine spending it with anyone else but you!


Merry Christmas!

It’s been a busy 7 days for me (and everyone else, I’m sure!). The holidays sure know how to take up a bunch of your time. And I LOVE it! If I could do what I did in this time span for the rest of my life, I’d die one happy girl.

Here are some fun things I worked on for the holidays…
