1st Married Christmas

We had a great Christmas morning just the two of us. We stayed in bed until about 10, then wandered to the living room where we opened gifts.
I was happy with a pretty new license plate frame, gift card to get my gels done, a new PINK jacket and of course Starbucks money. I feel like its Christmas every month with my husband, I am a lucky girl.
my loves!

Cutest niece & nephew!

This too shall pass

I have such a broken heart for an old friend's father who took his life this past week.
Please keep her in your prayers. The holiday season doesn't make it any easier.
On to a lighter note..
Have an amazing Christmas Eve

Our Christmas Card

Thought I would share our card that we sent out, its obviously an image we already shared after the wedding but I thought what the hell. I wanted our card to reflect our wedding from this year.
I will be heading out after work to hopefully finish my shopping today!!

Thursday Thoughts

As most of you know, I am a 911 dispatcher. Most days don't bother me and I don't let calls affect me after I leave the building.
Yesterday I answered a call to screaming and crying, the kind that rattles your bones.
I tried telling her to take a deep breath because I still wasn't sure if she needed police or a paramedic.
I transferred her to the fire department where she was able to say her husband was purple and on the bathroom floor.
The fire dispatcher began CPR instructions. He counted with her while she held the phone, cried and counted 1,2,3,4. 1,2,3,4. 1,2,3,4.
My heart ached. I knew he was gone.
He was only 40.
With 3 children at school.
It appears a heart attack took him.
It bothered me all day. I prayed for his wife and children last night.
And it reminded me to treasure each day.

Elf on the shelf....

I have seriously enjoyed the pictures ya'll post of your elf doing funny things! I can't wait til we have a little one down the road so we can have him keeping an eye out!
For now, he made a locket representing OO :)
Tomorrow is the last day to order a locket for it to be in by Christmas, so if you are interested, let me know!
I can order it for you to help save on shipping charges and get you a free chain!
This locket is on its way to my friend that recently lost her husband.
My friend is a teacher, her husband is a firefighter. H for their last name.
For my managers sister who likes to travel
Blush locket with dangles
Happy hump day!

Tree is up, Lights are hung!

I took the day off work yesterday to spend with my hubs, and it was a pretty perfect day.
We had lunch together, went to Home Depot and got a lighted deer (the last one!) dropped off some lockets, and then went home and hung the lights on the house.
I think it was even more special since it was our first time hanging lights together on our new house.
The tree is pretty complete with a few new ornaments for the year.
This one cracks me up, reminds of all the work we have done all the house so far.
Picked this one up in Maui on our honeymoon
Happy Monday!

Shout out, it's Friday

I was a bad blogger this week! I have been working every day which left me with nothing exciting to blog about! I worked overtime the past two days and then I am on today and tomorrow for my normal shift.
Here is what I am especially thankful for today!
Husband: You spoil me every single day, I am seriously so lucky to have you. Thank you for all your hard work that you put into our house!
Frappy: You are such a tiny little pup but bring so much happiness to us!!
Lil Sis: I hope you love my civic as much as I did. I am excited for you to have your first very own car and I am happy that I could help you.
Elf: Loving your primer and cheap makeup! My Target is finally carrying more product!
Loving these colors
Sweet tooth: I know you loved this gelato last night!!
Happy Friday!

Weekend Happenings

Since it rained all weekend, it messed up our plans of getting the house decked out for Christmas. We were able to get a tree yesterday when the rain had briefly stopped, but we weren't able to get lights on the casa. Tonight we will hang the ornaments and the tree will be complete.
Can you spy tiny Frappy?
On Saturday my friend hosted a party to sell my lockets. It was a lot of fun and everyone loved them.
mini delicous treats
And ended the night in front of the fire place
Lastly, got the windows tinted on my new car :)
Happy Monday!
