Peace Out 2016!

I know that like many people, I am very excited to put 2016 in the rear-view mirror. My favorite descriptor of this year so far? “Poop-flavored trash fire.” And I’ll never stop laughing at it. For all of the crap … Continue reading

Always Thankful

Happy holidays all!

The pictures from above are just a glimpse of my wonderful time off for the Thanksgiving holiday. I have always loved the holiday season because of the time off to relax and renew. Now, with my growing little family, I just love the opportunity to spend time with them. Being a full-time working mom who is also taking classes full-time, the break from school and work gives me a chance to spend all of my free time with my husband and son. I know I’m not cut out to be a stay-at-home mom but what a blessing it is to see him all day, every day.

Thanksgiving was great. We had the opportunity to host, cook, and had my father over. We did Skype with my mother-in-law so Gabe got to see almost of all of his grandparents. We avoided the Black Friday madness by heading out late in the afternoon to see what deals were left. The rest of the weekend seemed to fly by. Visiting my mom, movie/date night with the hubby to see Thor in 3D. Saturday and Sunday to relax.

Tomorrow it’s back to the grind. What I do have to look forward to is three more weeks of school and work until another break. A light at the end of the tunnel….and one of the many things I am thankful for!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

The holidays that is! I love them because it means lots and lots of time off work. Others love them because they mean family and all that jazz. This year I am certainly thankful for my little¬†immediately¬†family. My husband made a fabulous Thanksgiving feast for us and I got to spend the day appreciating how truly blessed I am to have him and marvel at how far we have come as a family. It doesn’t seem possible but I love my son more each day and enjoyed the days off I had to just spend playing, laughing, and taking care of him. Work, school, and family are challenging in equal measures but just seeing his little smile makes it leaps and bounds more worth it! Continue reading
