{Post} Christmas Loving.

Hey guys!!!!!!


How was your Christmas? Can you believe it’s come and gone already?! Seriously. Can time go any faster!?


We had a BEAUTIFULLY blessed day filled with family and food and fun … !!! Such an awesome day. I LOOOOOOVE Christmas … (but I think you guys know that by now) …


Guess what Hubalicious purchased? Oh yeah. He scored BIG TIME ….



And yes, it’s a working phone and yes, I promise, promise, promise I will be RUNNING to answer it (I have a bad reputation of not answering my phone – seriously, e-mail is quicker for me!)


Isn’t it the cutest thing ever? I loooooooooooooooooooove it!



I recently purchased this sweet, adorable chalkboard from Etsy …




… and now the pink phone and chalkboard are hanging side by side in the kitchen … the girls love it!!!

Yes, besides the phone, the day was fantastically wonderful …. and I feel so blessed to have such a loving family to spend the day with … 
I found these dresses Christmas Eve’s eve – on sale – I couldn’t pass them up. Sadly, they didn’t have one in mommy size. 



But I have to say … by December 26th or 27th, I am anxious and READY to declutter and take down the decorations .. seriously. I despise too much stuff in one house so … today was the day. (Well, I did half of it yesterday) and now I’m sitting in a treeless living room, with a clean, crisp mantle and a decluttered living room and I am happy.


I know.

I am weird.


I decorate and get all excited for Christmas …. and then bam, it’s over and I’m done

{But note, I decorated for Christmas on November 1st so that’s almost two full months of festive garland and red cranberries and gingerbread man. I’m ready for a crisp, clean house and a new start. Bring on the new year!}

Oh man, I am SO excited for 2010! I know God has some AMMMMMMAAAAZING things in store for this upcoming year … and gah!! I want to share them so badly on the blog but I have to wait, wait, wait until the time is right.

And I also was JUST inspired tonight to redo the studio – yehhhaw!! – so I am going to be working on that over the next few weeks. Haters of pink will have to avoid the studio because I’m afraid it will be rather girlie ….

I hope you all had and are having a beautiful holiday …..!!!!! Can’t wait to see what the new year will bring!!
