currently

reminiscing 
Loving: that Trevor and Alycia (my brother and sista) taught us how to make homemade pazookies! These are so freakin' delish and now I don't have to pay a ridiculous amount (why do desserts cost so much at restaurants?!) to go out and get one! You better believe my freezer is stalked with ice cream and cookie dough so that when I'm having a craving? I'll be set :) ha ha!

Reading: I was just having a conversation with my client yesterday about reading books. I've put reading on hold because when I'm reading? Everything else is put on hold. I just get so sucked in that I can't accomplish anything until the book is finished! And then there's always a sequel... ha! But I am reading blogs when I can an I'm about to read a tutorial to make some decor for Mia's party.

Trying to: wrap my head around the fact that my baby turns 1 next week! This truly has been the fastest year of my life and it's not even fair! I have loved every minute with my baby girl (except maybe those minutes of nursing the first couple weeks... just keepin' it real! But that's not Mia's fault)!

Wishing: and hoping, and praying that I don't go through seasonal depression once the holidays pass. Mia is the best reason to be excited to wake up in the mornings! But I am not a winter girl. I need my sunshine. I am not accustomed to the snow (and driving in it) even though I've lived in this climate for four (this is my fourth) years. So maybe what I'm saying is that I wish we had a family vacation planned to Hawaii from January to.... May! Ha ha!

Excited for: Christmas, duh! Eric had to work on Christmas Eve AND Christmas last year (12 hour shifts) and I was completely and totally out of it with a newborn. This year I'm back to my old self (Eric will argue that during my ornery moments, ha!) and Eric won't be working (or I may turn into a crazy person, again) and Mia will love the presents, the food, the family, etc! It's going to be SO fun!

And currently YOU should be entering the giveaway below! This is a good one guys, one you should not be missing out on!

Ooh girl I'm with you on the seasonal depression. Last year Axel was born in January so I don't really remember anything until maybe. . . April? But this year I'm worried that being stuck in the house with no Christmas music is going to make me nuts!!

What a sweet picture! Isn't it crazy how much faster time goes once you have kids??! How is that even fair!!?

P!nky said...

Wishing you a wonderful wonderful Christmas with your family!

I experience the holiday blues too, and it's no fun. I'm totally a sunshine warm girl, go away cold.

Do you have any good book recommendations?!?!

Love that picture of y'all!

I am sooo excited for Christmas too! It is going to be so fun to watch the little kiddos open their presents! Each year will just get more and more exciting too! I can't believe she will be one. Thats crazy! Terrin will be 9 months old next week and Im freaking out. It will be weird when I have to plan his birthday party!! AH!

Jessie said...

Hope this Christmas is the best yet! I'm with you on this winter blues thing. My motto this year is to try not to worry about it, take it one day at a time, and plan some fun things to do--like skiing! :) Merry Christmas!

Katie said...

it's crazy that she is almost one! im' already having feelings of time going way to fast - i kind of want those newborn days back - just a little bit :) so I can sit and snuggle her most of the day!!

It was so hard for me when Julian turned 1. but don't worry it will be a fun year again. its so fun to watch them grow ever more. when she starts talking your going to be so proud and it gets easier because they can tell you what they want or whats wrong.:O)

Niken said...

Laurie @ Disney 'n Diapers said...

EW. stop. ONE ALREADY?!!!

So glad Eric will be home to spend Christmas Eve with you guys this year! I can't imagine if the hubs wasn't around for such an important Holiday!

Sarah Alway said...

I always go through a bit of seasonal depression after the holidays, too. It's just so dang dark and rainy out here in the PNW I feel like there's no help for it! And this year I can't even look forward to snowboarding, either. :-(

Ashley @ ThisUnscriptedLife said...

We moved from Louisiana to Illinois last year. This will be our second winter here and I UNDERSTAND the seasonal depression. Where is the sun???? Why is it so cold??? I don't even like the snow lol. I'll be extra sad this year because we aren't going home for Christmas. Traveling 15 hours in the car with a 2 month old isn't my idea of fun. Emily HATES the car seat. We will be going home for the summer though...I have that to look forwards to. =)

Julie said...

She's already turning one...wow! And what is a pazookie?

Pamela said...

I'm praying B won't have to work on Christmas day!!

and now I am dreaming of a pazookie!! :) I am so not a cold girl either, I prefer the warmer weather. Actually fall temps are perfect for me, but the snow and cold, ugh!

Kirsty and Seth said...

I'm already looking forward to reading all about Mia's first Birthday! She is such a beautiful little lady!

you should do a recipe for the cookie thing, yum!!

Ech and Will said...

I'm the same way about reading. My husband gets super grumpy when I'm into a really good book because he knows he's going to be ignored until I'm done.

You have such a cute little family... I love looking at your pictures! :) I'm the same way with books... even if it's one I've already read a million times - I can't wait to get back to it and everything else goes on the back burner! I opened up The Count of Monte Cristo again the other night... I can't stop thinking about it and it's driving me bananas!

I'll Love You Forever said...

Love love! That picture!
I am so glad that your hubs doesn't have to work Christmas this year!!

So fun! Glad he is going to be off this christmas!! And that picture is adorable!

Rachel said...

I always think I have enough self control, that I won't get sucked into a book...but then the book proves me wrong!!

Janna Renee said...

I feel like reading blogs should count as reading! I mean, I still want to read books, but I have to catch up on blog reading too! I can't believe our baby is almost one!
