Valentine's Day Fun

Last week we started working on Valentine's Day cards for Easton's friends at school. I can't even believe he's old enough to write his own name on his Valentine's Day cards. He loved picking out Ninja Turtle cards for each classmate.
He wore a cute shirt to school on Valentine's Day for his party. 
I had him a small bag of goodies for Valentine's Day so he was so excited to open it yesterday.
For my Valentine's gifts, you could sum them up in one word: Fitness! I am 27 pounds down and counting and am working out 5 days a week. I got a new 52 ounce Bubba cup, blender bottles, Under Armour headbands I'd been wanting, and a fitness bench that I've been eyeing! Woohoo!
Happy Valentine's Day! 

Catch Up

Whew - it's been a while since I've updated. Here are some things we've been up to:
T-ball is starting soon so we have been practicing some at the ball-field. Easton will love it. I can't wait to see him play.
He hits the ball pretty far - I took this picture to show how far he hit it one day.
We've enjoyed some outside play time on the days it hasn't been too cold. 
We celebrated 100 days of school!

For several months now, I have been using and selling AdvoCare. I started by drinking Spark and was hooked from there!
A few weeks ago I went to AdvoNation in Atlanta. My mom and sister-in-law also uses and sell AdvoCare products so it was fun seeing them as always! I drove to Atlanta after school on a Friday, spent the night with our team in Atl', and then attended AdvoNation. We laughed SO much that night - it was such a fun little get away!
We heard from TONS of amazing speakers and even heard a little from Rich Froning, otherwise known as the fitted man on Earth! When asked why he uses AdvoCare products, he replied, "It works"!
I also saw and got a picture with Josh Murray (former winner of "The Bachelorette"). Woohoooooo - he is quite the looker!

New Years Eve

It's became a tradition that my Mom comes to our house to celebrate New Years Eve with us. She's been here on NYE the past two years and we, of course, love her being here.
Joe was out of town working (unfortunately) so it was just me, Mom, and Easton on NYE. We went out to eat at Ruby Tuesday's and ran a few errands before coming back to just enjoy being together at my house.
I bought a few NYE goodies so we had fun taking pictures with them. Easton stayed up until midnight to watch the ball drop and then slept until 9:00 the next morning. Score!

Bring on 2015!

Christmas Decor

Yesterday we put up our Christmas d├ęcor and while I was a bit sad to see it go, it feels good having our house back to normal. Before taking it all down, I snapped a few pictures of our home at Christmas.
My FAVORITE thing is our colored lights tree - complete with homemade ornaments, candy garland, and bubble lights. I LOVE it.
Our bedroom housed our more decorative tree - mostly red's and gold's. The lighting was off in this picture, but you get the gist of it. 
Upstairs we had three small Christmas trees: 1) Guest room - red and silver themed 2) Loft - TN VOLS tree and 3) Easton's tree - full of ornaments that reflects his likes over the past few years (Elmo, Mickey, Ninja Turtles), some sports ornaments, and some of Joe's ornaments as a child. I also LOVE this tree!
A new item this year was our monogrammed stockings - they turned out so cute and fit our main colors of red and green.

The next two pictures are just a few decorations in our living room.

I painted this at a painting party last year. It's not perfect by any means, but it's cute.
We added garland and picks on the rails by the stairs. 
These are a few decorations in our kitchen.

Dining room....

This large nativity set is one of my favorite Christmas decorations of all time! LOVE it. It fit perfectly in this little nook by the stairs.
A few touches in our master bedroom....

One of my favorite areas in our entry way. I love the festive red and green touches here! 
Last but not least is our wreath on the front door - created by me! 
What a great Christmas season we had!
