Celebrate Review

I just have to share…

I love Pippa’s new book!  I haven’t dug too deep into it yet but I can already tell I’m going to love it.  It seems to have the perfect about of beautiful photography and print.  I like that it is sectioned by seasons then holidays and then meal time.  I appreciate how it doesn’t tell you step by step down to the smallest detail how to organize your party because it never really works out that perfect.  It gives you just enough information to leave you (the reader) to interrupt how to make it work for your home and family.  Bonus it has some great drink ideas. 

Not to mention…as some of you know I love the Brits.  Pippa incorporates some great British history, traditions, and recipes that I’m dying to try out!  It has sweet poems and little stories to mix it up a bit, just brilliant!

Did I say it’s pretty and makes an awesome addition to any coffee table or bookshelf!
Bonus you can pick it up on Amazon by way of Ebates!!

I'm Behind

As my friends and family know I'm a big fan of TV...the good, lame, and tacky.  And I'm sooo behind.  I'm looking forward to a quite Friday night catching up on my faves that I've missed this week.  My DVR is FULL and I'm pumped!

everyone's favorite

ABC's Thursday Night Line Up...Last Resort, Greys, and Scandal

Just to name a few...I promise I do have a life.

A New Family Member

My sister got a little puppy dog for Christmas…Maddy, named after none other than Matt Ryan aka Maddy Ice.  She and Hendrix were quite the pair.  


Maddy was ALL OVER Hendrix and he played for all of 10 minutes and then pretty much gave up.  She crawled all over him and he was like a fat bump on a log.  Hendrix just laid there getting poked and looked up with his sad eyes begging us to make it stop.  Of course we didn't.

Friday Morning Coffee Thoughts

 Pinned Image

Yes, it's been a 3 day work week but I'm so looking forward to my Saturday with the Mr.  We have no plans and I'm pretty excited about that.  I feel like we are still recovering for the holidays so hopefully we can enjoy one more lazy day before it's off to the races with 2013.

My obsession continues...I broke down and ordered Pippa Middleton's book this week and I'm pretty pumped it's being delivered today!!

Earlier this week I finished my Christmas Pinterest DIY project, chalk board canvas.  I'm very happy with the turn out.  It has found a perfect home in the living room and can wait to update it throughout the year....

Happy Friday!  Any fun plans for the first weekend of 2013?

2013...A New Year

 I’m going to make my list limited this year so I can really focus on making the most of 2013 and not plan too much!

For the Bungalow:
Complete outdoor shed for storage
Complete half bathroom
Paint our bedroom and bathroom cabinet
I'll leave it at that and avoid being too ambitious.

For Us:
Schedule a dedicated monthly date of something new and exciting….sounds easy but we failed in 2012 and the something new portion.  We did squeeze in a few and they were by far the best!

Have a ‘just us’ vacation (perhaps just a long weekend) somewhere fun and relaxing!
I'm going to be better about cooking (healthier cooking) during the week for the both of us.
Support my Mr. in all of his endeavours.

For Me:
Complete my 30 before 30 bucket list…I have 9 months.
Eat healthier and be more frequent with my workouts, perhaps even join a gym?!

Be a better Christian - get more involved in my faith and my church family.

I hope everyone enjoyed a safe and happy start to the 2013!!  I'm looking forward to the next 363 days!!

What will you do on the first day of 2013?
Answer - watch football, possibly eat too much, reminisce on the joys of 2012....and probably a little champagne!

Cheers to a happy and healthy 2013!!
