A Few of My Favorite Things

Friday, December 17, 2010

With the holidays fast approaching it is easy to get caught up in all of the craziness.  We have tried really hard this year to focus on each other and remember all of the little things that we have to be thankful for. So in keeping with our theme I thought I would post about a few of my favorite things.  All of the little things that add up to make life so wonderful!

1. Louis Vuitton.  Oh how I love Louis Vuitton purses.  There is something so classic about these purses. 

2. Starbucks. A sweet temptation that I indulge in every so often. I especially love it this time of year with all the winter flavors.

3. MAC Cosmetics have saved my life.

4. Cheesecake. Enough Said!

5. Sonic Vanilla Dr. Pepper.  This lovely drink makes my day. There is a reason it is called "Happy Hour".

6. Beautiful desserts.  I love it when the food I am eating looks as great as it tastes.

7. My new favorite wine - Paco & Lola.  We discovred this gem on our trip to New York.

8. A sparkly white kitchen.  I hope that one day I will have a kitchen that makes me smile when I enter.

9. Where the Wild Things Are.  This is a favorite for all members in our house.

10. Home Decorating.  If I could do it all over again this is what I would do for a living.....HEAVEN!

11. Audrey Hepburn.  She is such a classic and sophisticated figure in our history.  I could easily spend my days watching her movies over and over.  Even Riley likes Breakfast at Tiffany's!

12. My Ipod Nano.  This is such a lifesaver when I am at work.  I can just plug it in and tune out the world.  I get so much more accomplished when I am working to my favorite tunes.  Not to mention that it holds some of the kids favorite songs, making road trips much more enjoyable.

13. Bootcamp. This class has been such a great stress reliever.  Even when I am really frustrated with work, life, or whatever by the time I leave this class I have usually forgotten what had me so worked up.  Not to mention that it has helped me in my quest to shed those extra baby pounds.

14. My babies.  I can't believe just how much my life has changed since these two cuties have entered my life.  They make me smile, laugh, and a little bit crazy all at the same time.  Being their mommy is the best job I will ever have. Riley is such a ham and loves to be the center of attention.  Hannah is such a sweetie.  She is quiet but strong willed.  I know that the two of them are going to be the best of friends.  Love Love Love my sweet monkeys!

15. My husband.  I don't know where I would be without him.  He is the funniest, most caring, hard working, and loving man I know.  I know that my kids will grow up with so much respect and love for their daddy.  He loves us so much and does everything he can to take care of us.  Each day I love him just a little bit more.  I thought on the day we were married that there was no way I could love him anymore, but I do.  All of the little things only matter because I can share them with him.  Love Love Love my baseball stud!

Viva Las Vegas!

Sunday, December 05, 2010

In honor of the fact that I turned the Big 3-0 in November, my husband thought I deserved a suprise vacation to Las Vegas to celebrate! Isn't he the best?!?!  I was really anxious about turning 30, not really sure why.  I am guessing that once you hit 30 you are no longer in your 20's and that just seems like you have officially entered adulthood.  I would have to say that I think I could celebrate all of my birthdays with a suprise trip. As much as I missed the kiddos, it was such a fun trip with an amazing guy.

Here are just a few of our favorite pictures from the trip.
