My Holiday Favorites & A Moving Update

Hi All!

Well, I am officially no longer living out of a suitcase, woo hoo! We moved into our new house last Wednesday and it’s been a whirlwind. I don’t really know what day it is until I look at my phone. We still have tons of boxes to go through, but at least we can now cook and sit and watch tv in our own space. We have moved so much the past few years, and I still forget how much unpacking just sucks. Ugh. Here’s some pics of our progress so far~


 Admist all the unpacking and boxes, we managed to put up a tree! And yes, the ornaments are all high up because of the dog’s chewing habits.

Our living room space including a cute sleepy dog!

014Getting the kitchen organized was THE WORST. I’m happy that part is finished!


The next task is the office. Oh boy, so many boxes still. EEK.


The bedroom is just about finished. We need to find some nightstands and we’ll be all set! Our last house wasn’t big enough to fit a nightstand (sad, I know), so I’m pretty excited that I don’t have to store my books and magazines on the floor anymore. 🙂


I love organizing my makeup area and dresser!


A walk-in closet, OMG! I can actually see everything I own! I even have enough space for some more clothes, woo!


Double sinks, I’m already obsessed.


The guest room is all ready for our first guest this week, my mom!


The baby room needs the most work, it’s currently filled with an overflow of empty boxes. But hey, at least I have some cute clothes to hang up so far!

I’ll make sure to share some updated pics once everything is all set.


To completely change topics, I wanted to share what I love about the Holidays and also hear what you love too!

Christmas Movies~ This is a no-brainer. My favorites are Christmas vacation, Elf, Home Alone, and It’s a Wonderful Life.


Holiday Coffee Flavors~ Peppermint Mochas, Salted Caramel Mochas (apparently I have a thing for mochas)!

holiday drinks


Decorating the Tree~ I’m extremely impressed with ourselves getting a tree up over the weekend.  Last year we didn’t have a tree because hubby had just had his shoulder surgery AND Paisley was not even a year yet. Lame, I know. So this year, there is no lack of the holiday spirit in our house!

Buying Stocking Stuffers for the Hubby~  I have gotten him the best gifts in the past at the most random places like Rite Aid. Lol. I love searching for funny little gifties that he would like or laugh at. I’m going to head out to Target today and see what I can find. (I need to find this shirt somehow, ha!)




What are your favorite activities to do around the Holidays? 

Are you finished with your Christmas shopping? 

Happy Wednesday to you all!

    Looks like you have a lot of space in that house! Awesome! I’m jealous. I love listening to Christmas music, sitting by a tree and hanging out with loved ones. Oh and drinking wine while doing all of that too. 🙂
