Week in review

These last two weeks have been very hectic. I don't feel like I have just had a minute to myself not to mention a whole night. But its okay because it's ALMOST CHRISTMAS!!!

One of my good friends owns a store in Dothan, AL called the Freckled Frog and last Tuesday we had a Trunk Show for her. We had a great turn out and it was fun to try on all the different clothes. If you haven't you should like her facebook page!

Last Friday my friend Kayla graduated from Law School. YAY! We all went to dinner to celebrate then had a girls night... well a girls weekend! Saturday night our favorite band was playing Whiskey River Band and we had a Tacky Christmas Party to go to. We dressed up as 2 snowmen, 2 gingerbread men and a reindeer. needless to say we were a hit at the bar. We homemade our whole costume which was fun but a lot more work then we realized.

Monday night was an end of an era.... Gossip Girl ended. I'm still not sure how I feel about this. I loved this show and all their drama. Especially Blair and Chuck. I think almost everyone wants their own Chuck Bass... I know I do. But out of all the shows I watch that have ended this has been my most favorite.It was just a very happy ending and everyone was happy ( especially Chuck and Blair and their cute son!!!!) and I was okay with who Gossip girl is. Even though now I want to go back and re-watch everything and see if it makes sense. I just hope it really is true that they are coming out with a movie.

Last night I went to moms and cooked dinner and we made some goodies. If you haven't tried the Kraft Fresh Takes then you should. You buy them in the grocery store by the cheese and it is just seasoning that you can put on chicken. It is easy and taste WONDERFUL!!! I dip the chicken in butter then into the seasoning then bake for 30 to 45 minutes on 350 and it's done.

We also made Oreo balls, chocolate covered everything, mini cakes, and the cute reindeer cokes. It was a fun night hanging out with ole Pammy.

I felt like it took me weeks but I finally got all my Christmas cards out and I'm almost done shopping. A few more little things here and there and one but thing but after that I'm DONE! This is the first Christmas ever that I have been a head of the game. and I still have a whole weekend to shop.

Sister got a new dog... Jax. Him and Riley are Best Friends! They run and play all day long ha they love each other. I think Riley is just a friendly dog because every dog she meets she is best friends with them.

This is something I would say and it made me laugh. If you know me you know I am not strong even a little and at one point I couldn't do a push-up.  Just so y'all know I can now do FIVE! 

This is my favorite bible verse and it has been popping up everywhere lately so I just wanted to share it!

"I've told you this so that my peace will be with you. In the world you'll have trouble. But CHEER UP! I have overcome the world!" John 16:33

I hope y'all enjoyed it. and Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Love you all!

Christmas Stache

Merry Christmas from Casey and Jami's house! This is our first ever Christmas to decorate for real living on our own! We love Christmas and love all of our decorations! I don't know about y'all but growing up I always hated putting Christmas decorations up because I had no say in it and we had to do what ever mom wanted... well this year we got to decide and I loved every minute of it. Here are just a few pictures of our very Christmasy house! enjoy!!

Our Christmas tree that has deer on it. We are obsessed!!

Random Christmas decorations in our house! And our Christmas coffee mugs.

Mr Snowman! 

Riley wasn't to happy with me making her sit by the tree and take pictures but she is so cute I couldn't help it!!!

Ha I love mustaches and this was a clever little thing that made me giggle!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas so far! I know I am! I hope y'all have a good of a time decorating as me and Jami did!

But don't forget what Christmas is really about. I wish everyone that reads this blog would do something nice for someone in need or even just a complete stranger... You could do something as simple as smiling and wishing everyone you see a good day to paying for the persons meal behind you in the drive-thru or getting a present for a family with small children. Christmas is not about what you receive but about spreading joy and God's love. So try it! Please I promise you will feel better about yourself and you will have made that persons day.
