Ornament Show & Tell

This evening while going through all the blogs I read on a daily basis I found that Sarah From Our Journey did an Ornament Show & Tell.  What a great idea!  So here is my favs!


 
 
 
 
 
 
Brian and I got this ornament on our Honeymoon trip to Disney =)  I wish it had the year on it, but I guess we will always remember what year we got married! =)
 
 
 
 
This was from our very first visit to Disney with Emma when she was 2 years old =)
 
 
 
 
 
This is one of my favorites, because it's Emma's favorite.  It's the bell from the Polar Express.  She absolutely loves this ornament!
 
 
 
 
Emma's handprint when she was a year old.  I still remember how hard it was getting her to put her hand into the clay!
 
 
 
 
This one is special because my dads side of the family is Swedish, and my parents got this for me at a Swedish store. 
 
 
 
 
We got this Ornament from my great aunt the year Emma was born.  Emma always has to make sure that she puts this ornamnet on the tree =)
 
 
 
 
And lastly, this is one of my very favorites.  Brian and I got it the year we bought our house.  We found it and it was perfect.  I told him I always wanted a house with a red door too =) 
 
 
So now it's your turn!  What are your favorite ornaments? =)

It's been a long time since I have done a What i'm Loving Wednesday, and I don't have a ton to blog about today...so here we go with things i'm loving!



Loving this new nail polish color!


It looks black, but it's actually a deep purple.  It's the Sally Hansens Insta-Dri, which as you all know is my favorite polish EVER.  It dries sooo incredibly fast and with being a mom that is really awesome!  The color is Uptempo Plum. 


I'm also loving this little girl =)





She got a new hat yesterday from her Nana.  It's a little big for her, but I still think it's pretty cute on her =)


I'm also loving the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha.  Oh. My.  So good!!


I always get mine without whipped cream though.  I am probably the only one in the world that cannot stand whipped cream! haha


I'm also LOVING this....





I'm loving that we are getting this new store!!




Very excited!  We are also getting a Buffalo Wild Wings and a Five Guys Burgers and Fries =)  Lots of new stores and restaurants coming =)


I'm loving these little snowmen treats!  I think I may have to make them for Emma's class for school.

I'm loving this Christmas CD




I definately reccomend it! 


I'm loving this purple retro metro bag from Thirty-One


Retro Metro Tote


I love this bag.  I have been debating wether or not to buy it.  It's kinda pricy and it's Chritmas and I should be buying for other people...not me.  Maybe soon! Ha! =)



So there you have it.  My What i'm loving Wednesday!  What are you loving?

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!

Thursday afternoon after Thanksgiving dinner we got our Christmas tree up!  We used to have a real tree, but then we decided to go the fake route.  I do miss a real tree though.  Brian had to work Thursday night, so Emma and I decorated it =)  She LOVES to help.  I used to be really really picky about my ornaments being spaced out just perfectly, but now with Emma....they tend to get put up in clumps around the tree.  And I'm ok with that!  She thinks it's beautiful, and she is only little once.  These are the times i'll miss when she gets older.  So I did a post about her decorating the tree, but I never shared the final picture of the tree.



 Our Christmas Tree 2012 =)  It's not perfect, but it fits us just fine!!  

Again, sorry for the crappy photo quality of all my pictures.  I always carry my cellphone on me, and hardly ever have my real camera with me.  I need to start carrying it with me everywhere I go.  My purse is plenty big enough to carry it that's for sure! haha


We spent Saturday afternoon and night at my parents house.  It's always nice to go home (and sleep in the next morning!)  We also supported small business Saturday!  I got a little Christmas shopping done which was nice =)




Emma watched The Polar Express on the way to the grandparents house.  Ohhhh how she LOVES this movie!

We stopped and saw Daddy too!




Emma loves mornings when she can just lounge around the living room watching cartoons and having breakfast!




Last night we celebrated my mother in laws Birthday.  Her actual birthday was on Thanksgiving.  We had an ice-cream cake from DQ, and it was sooo good!  My MIL is the best decorator for Holidays!  She has her house completely decked out, and I love it  I told her that I feel like i'm walking into a craft store! haha  It's not overly done or tacky though at all!  Her tree is just beautiful.  Here is a pic of it.

 



This picture is really dark, but it's the 4 cousins in front of Mimi's Christmas tree!  =)


 We have 11 days left until our Disney trip!  It's gone by way fast...I just hope the trip itself lasts a bit longer!  I haven't done any packing at all.  I really need to get on that asap.  Next week i'm getting my hair cut, colored and highlighted.  Way overdue!!  And i'm taking Emma to get a manicure before we go...she's going to love it!  Happy Monday all! =)

Happy Thanksgiving =)


I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving...and you aren't too full =)  We spent the afternoon at Brians grandmothers house.  We had an excellent meal, and good company =) 

It's traditon in our family the night before Thanksgiving that all the kids spend the night at camp.  Brian wasn't able to go because he had to work so Emma went out with my brother in law and the rest of the kids.  They had sooo much fun out there.  They made memories that they will remember forever.  That makes me smile =)

Since all the kids were at camp, and Brian was working my mother in law and I went Christmas shopping!!  For Emma's big gift this year we decided to go with a doll house of some sort.  And I found the perfect one at Sams Club the other day, so we went last night and picked it up.  I'm pretty sure she's going to love it!

 
 
And then we did the WalMart thing, and that place was packed!  So we headed to dinner.  It was nice to be able to go out and enjoy some nice quiet time and get some things accomplished.
 
When I got back home last night I decided to try making a pecan pie.  Must say, it was a success!  And everyone loved it today at Thanksgiving lunch!
 
 
 
This was before it went into the oven.
 
 
And here it is finished!
 
 
 
 
Next time i'd like to try making my own pie crust!
 
 
So this morning Emma got home around 8:30ish or so.  I got up and made a coffee cake and a cup of coffee and Emma wanted hot cocoa.  So she enjoyed a cup of hot cocoa, a bagel, and watched the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade.  I love to watch the parade as much as her!
 
 
 
 
 
We headed over to Brians grandmothers around noon...we got 1/2 way there and I realized I didn't bring my camera =(  I was sooo bummed.  So the next couple are from my phone. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our meal was excellent!  Lots of turkey, potato, stuffing, gravy, peas, squash, rolls and sweet potato casserole!  Yumm!!
 
We got home, and it was time to decorate our Christmas tree!!!  We usually always do it Thanksgiving afternoon or the day after.  Emma loves to decorate it!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So it took me an entire day to do this post.  And that is because I finally got the dreaded message when uploading photos, that I was at maxiumum capacity or whatever for my photos.  So I opted to purchase the extra 25gb or what not.  So now that i'm officially paying for this blog, maybe i'll blog every single day.  HA! =) 
 
I hope each and everyone of you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.  I know we sure did!  And now that Thanksgiving is over...we are on our official countdown now for Disney! 
 We are at 14 days now!  Exactly 2 weeks from today we'll be on the plane flying there =)  It's not like i'm excited or anything....hehe =)
