What We’ve been up to…..

This past weekend Danny and I had a wonderful time at his company Christmas party.  It was fun to get all dressed up and have a night away – kid free thanks to some awesome friends.

The lace dress with the cute red and black plaid shoes equaled the perfect outfit for the night 🙂

Danny thought he was being funny but this was a great picture of us.

Kate turns nine next month and I always have to have her party planned before Christmas. This year will be the first time EVER that we will not being have a “home” party.  She has asked to have a party at a local trampoline park so we agreed.  I am glad that I don’t have to do any real planning for this party and don’t have to clean my house before a huge party.

What I’m Excited About…..

We have started talking about our what we wanted to do for our family vacation this past weekend.   As of right now we are leaning toward taking a trip to Montana and Wyoming.  This is one place that Danny and I have both never been.  We had some friends that took a vacation to Montana this past summer and it looked amazing.  So let the planning begin!!!

 What I’m Watching……..

My friend and I were talking about shows we needed to watch now that we were done with The Crown and she suggested Good Girls Revolt (on Amazon Prime).  I am only two episodes in and I am hooked.

This past weekend some good friends of ours that live in Austin were on House Hunters Renovation.  It was so much fun to see them go through the process of renovating their new home.

What I’m Reading…..

Seriously I have not had anytime to open a book!!! I really wish I had some free time to read but right now I feel like I am going 100 mph in all directions.

 
What I’m Listening to…..

I am listening to a lot of Christmas music.

What I’m doing this weekend…..

This weekend is all about Christmas!!!
What better way to prepare for Christmas then to look back at the past 4 years of Christmas with the family…

What I’m Looking Forward to next month…..

The last time I was in New York City which was almost 14 years ago.  Danny surprised me with a trip to NYC the Fall of 2002.  While we were there we went to the Empire State building, the Today Show plaza, and walked all over the city!!  However, the most memorable event from that trip was when Danny proposed to me in Central Park on the Gapstow Bridge.

I am so excited that we will be going to NYC next month!!! We are planning to see a show, go to the Statue of Liberty, and of course visit the place where Danny popped the question. 🙂

What else is new…..

Two weekends ago we had family pictures taken.  Our amazing photographer finished editing our session this past weekend and I love every picture!!  I am going to have a hard time picking the perfect family picture to frame.   Here are just a few of my favorites…

Question of the month is:

What is your favorite memory from 2016?

This year has been an amazing year.  Looking back I really can’t pick one favorite memory so I thought I would share a few special moments from this year.

  1. What a fun post! Yellowstone and Glacier are amazing places to visit. So much beauty. I love the black dress paired with the plaid shoes. Your family pictures turned out amazing, and all those warm weather trips makes me miss the heat! Have a great day!

  2. This post is full of so much joy!! Getting engaged in NYC!!! Oh my goodness so fun and how amazing to go back. Montana is definitely a vacation on my bucket list…it’s hard to find a place my entire family could enjoy with the age difference but I think it would fit the bill for everyone. Someday when baseball no longer rules my vacations I hope I still have lots of energy to travel!! And I loved looking back on your Christmas morning pictures! I always loved setting up my tripod for a Christmas morning picture but at some point my oldest daughter got so self conscious and we kind of stopped….and I may have to make sure it happens again this year. Have a Merry, Merry Christmas with your sweet family.

  3. You look stunning in your party dress for Danny’s Christmas party!! I love the plaid shoes. What a fun accessory!
    A trip to Wyoming & Montana sounds right up my husband’s ally! We went to Steamboat Springs before we had the little kids, and had a blast. We loved hiking and white water rafting!
    I think I saw a preview for that show on Amazon and thought it looked good. I am going to check it out. It looks like something I would like.
    Have a great weekend, and Merry Christmas!!!
